Did you know the average woman uses 300 chemicals per day? YIKES. That may sound like a lot but when you read the label on a single product, the list of chemicals is often lengthy.
These chemicals are in our beauty products, soaps, shampoos, and more. Not to mention the chemicals we encounter in cleaning products, food, and in the air. It’s no wonder many of us feel taxed and depleted, we’re experiencing chemical overload. What chemicals are in your products? Check out this handy list.

25 Ways You Are Poisoning Yourself Before Breakfast
Have you ever stopped to think about all of the chemicals we use on a daily basis? Chemical additives are in the air fresheners we breathe, the beauty and cleaning products we use, and in the perfumes and colognes we spray. Not to mention the chemicals in the food we eat. While these chemicals might be considered harmless in small amounts, what is the impact of these chemicals when they’re mixed together? And how does exposure to these chemicals day after day, year after year affect our bodies and our health?
We know that many chemicals are associated with negative health effects. This is why there’s a growing movement back to more natural food and products. At my house, we began the switch many years ago by buying organic and non-GMO foods whenever possible, buying natural health and beauty products or making our own, and using essential oils.
Which of these products do you use in your household? Check the list below to see the known chemicals and negative side effects associated with those chemicals.
|Product||Known Chemicals (See list below for known negative side effects)|
|1. Air Freshener||1,4,7,8|
|2. Bath Soap||3,4..5..6..7..8|
|5. Skin Lotion||1,3,4,5,6,7,8|

|21. Mattress & Pillow||4,7|
|23. Fabric Softener||3,4,5,7|
|24. Chlorine Bleach||1,2|
|25. Dry Cleaning||1,7|
Here are just a few of these chemicals and the negative health effects that have been associated with them:
- Alcohols: Acid & Alkali: rashes, muscle weakness, headaches, dizziness, nerve damage, vision problems, sleeping problems, stomach cramps, disorientation, depression, coughing, respiratory problems, anemia, organ damage, fatigue, heart damage, cancer, death.

Imagine reaching your full potential, having a successful career, being happy, and living the life of your dreams. What does that look like? How would that feel? What steps do you need to take to make that dream a reality?
It is possible to live the life of your dreams. In my eBook, Design Your Dream Life, I talk about the importance of creating a clear vision for your life and being as specific as possible with how you would feel. I also discuss how to create a plan, and the importance of taking the right actions to help you get there.
How Visual Tools Help You Reach Your Goals
The use of visual tools, including vision boards, mind maps, and dream charts can be very helpful in designing and achieving your dream life. They activate the creative right-side of your brain and help you see new possibilities. Visual tools also help create an optimistic, positive mindset that is helpful in changing your habits and behaviors into positive ones that will help you reach your goals.
Author Patti Dobrowolski created a visual tool that is perfect for this, and shared it in her book, Drawing Solutions: How Visual Goal Setting Will Change Your Life. I had the privilege of meeting Patti recently, and attended one of her workshops. [Read more…] about 7 Steps to Reaching Your Goals with Visual Goal Setting
