Why “Rituals” May Be More Powerful Than “Resolutions”
A New Year is a great time to consider where you’ve come from, where you’re going, your new goals, and the state of your health. However, the problem with typical resolutions is that they can be tough to achieve, making it easy to lose motivation and give up if you don’t see progress quickly.
The truth is, big results come from small actions done consistently. It’s the persistence part that’s key. Even the most skilled climbers hike up Mount Everest one step at a time, over and over and over.
So perhaps instead of resolving to “lose 20 pounds” in the New Year, you could begin with a small, consistent ritual like drinking 8 glasses of water daily and squeezing in 2-3 workouts each week. It feels less intimidating, and you’ll likely see tangible progress without your goal feeling so insurmountable.
If your New Year’s resolutions include focusing on your health and taking better care of yourself, we can help! Here are a few ways you can make big changes by starting some simple, small rituals:
Reduce Neck Pain by Going Contour

Reduce Your Exposure to Harmful Toxins
From body & household cleaning products to pollution in the air, modern living bombards us with harmful toxins all day long. However, you can give your brain and body a much needed break for 8 hours each night with pure, all natural bedding and pillows. Then you’ll give your brain and body time to repair and rejuvenate every single day, which can lead to big health benefits in the long run!
Reduce Your Impact on the Planet
It’s estimated that Americans dispose of an estimated 20 million mattresses and box springs every year. You can reduce your own waste every year simply by investing in a mattress that can be used for many years and even be recycled or composted when you are finished with it!

White Lotus Home - US Manufacturers of Organic Cotton and Natural Mattresses, Pillows and Bedding
HIGHLAND PARK, NJ – An increasing number of consumers are concerned about indoor air quality and toxic chemicals in mattress foams, glues, and fire retardant substances.
Conventional mattresses typically contain petrochemicals, fire retardants, plastics or vinyl. This chemical cocktail is linked to a host of health maladies, such as allergies and respiratory problems. This is particularly so with crib mattresses.
Here are 10 reasons why you should sleep on an organic cotton filled mattress:
- Organic mattresses are made with materials found in nature, resources that encourage sustainable farming throughout the world: cotton grown without pesticides and wool from sheep raised on chemical free farms.
Standard industry mattresses are made from man-made materials, most commonly derived from petrochemicals.
Petrochemicals are derived from oil.
Oil contains toxins.
Oil is not a renewable resource.
Oil is highly flammable.
Studies have raised concerns about the long-term health effects petrochemical bedding materials may have on humans.
If you sleep on a memory foam mattress, you're spending a third of your life sleeping on an oil-based product.
All mattresses sold in the U.S. have to meet the U.S. Fire Code burn test. Mattresses need to be treated so they don't ignite. However, the chemicals used to treat mattresses to make them flame proof are highly suspect.
Our skin absorbs toxins, our lungs breathe in airborne vapors. Do you really trust the mattress industry when they tell you it's safe to sleep on their materials?
