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, bigresults 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

Check those out here.
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 mattressesand box springs every year. You can reduce your own waste every year simply by investing in amattressthat can be used for many years and even be recycled or composted when you are finished with it!

The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly
Contour pillows have gained popularity in recent years, and it’s for good reason. They offer a number of incredible benefits, like:
Relief from pain, soreness, and stiffness
Support for your neck, head, and shoulder
But there are a handful of BIG problems with many of the conventional contour pillows out there.
They’re not adjustable. Once you bought one, you were stuck with its shape and firmness.
They’re synthetic.Most conventional contour pillows are made of materials like memory foam which could contain any number of potentially toxic chemicals. For example, diisocyanates are chemicals commonly used in memory foam that can irritate the mouth, nose, and eyes, and TDI, in particular, may be carcinogenic.
They’reexpensive!Despite being one shape and firmness and potentially packed with toxic chemicals, you could break the bank buying one!
The KaPillow’s design is simple. It’s a soft, organic cotton sateen casing, filled with our natural Kapok fiber with a half-seam in the center, creating a dip for your head, and leaving a lip on either side to support your neck.
Unlike typical contour pillows, we made our KaPillow easy to adjust because we know just how important it is for the firmness and shape to be just right.
To adjust your KaPillow, you can simply unzip the case and add or remove filling as you see fit until it’s perfect for you!

You might already be aware that Prime Day is coming up next week.
Before you shop all those Prime Day deals, as a member of our conscious community, we’d love for you to please think for a moment about where your dollars will go when you do. Here’s a quick look at Amazon’s stats:
More than 50% of Amazon’s products come from other countries, and 45% of them are from China (Yikes!)
Jeff Bezos’ current net worth is $193.4 billion USD, and it’s only growing.
Amazon generated almost 500 million pounds of plastic packaging last year, more than 22 million pounds of which ended up in rivers and oceans. Very sad !
TAKE THE LOTUS LOCAL CHALLENGE!
SHOP GREEN, NOT PRIME
Amazon bought Whole Foods four years ago, but we've been organic for FORTY!
White Lotus Home has been ahead of the Green game for decades, and we'd like to keep it that way!
With Prime Day on its way, we challenge you to take the Lotus Local Challenge and shop GREEN this week before Prime Day even starts!
Here’s what happens when you buy from a small sustainable ♻️ business instead of a billion-dollar megacorporation:
⭐ Small businesses like ours utilize other local small businesses like banks, service providers, and farms.
⭐ For every $100 you spend at local businesses, $68 will stay in the community! (1) Woo-Hoo!
⭐ Independent retailers return more than three times as much money per dollar of salesto the community in which they operate than chain competitors.
⭐ Supporting local businesses is good for the environment because they often have a smaller carbon footprint than larger companies.

It's 7:00 AM and your alarm goes off. It went off ten minutes ago, but you couldn't pull yourself out of bed. You still feel like you can't, so you hit the snooze button one more time, roll over, and pray your coffee maker was set correctly the night before so you can get some caffeine in your system ASAP.
Sound familiar? When it comes to modern day living, sleep can feel like a scarce commodity. We often go through our days already exhausted right off the starting line.
Sometimes improving the quality of your sleep means making a few lifestyle adjustments and taking a good look at what you're sleeping on every night. Here are 10 ways you can get back to giving your body and mind the rest they need to wake up feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to go in the morning.
Exercise While exercise is a great way to help relieve any tension, stress, and anxiety that may be keeping you up at night, getting a good work out in can physiologically improve your sleep too. Exercise can trigger longer periods of slow-wave sleep which is the deepest and most restorative phase of sleep you can get each night. Still not enough to get you to the gym? Polls have found that people who exercise regularly, even if they don’t get any more sleep than those who don’t, actually report better quality of sleep which means they wake up feeling better than their non-exercising counterparts. Go break a sweat!
Find the Perfect Pillow Do you wake up feeling like your neck is stiff in the middle of the night? Maybe your shoulder hurts from laying on it, and you toss and turn frequently. These problems can be solved byfinding the perfect pillow. It may take a little experimentation before you find the right fit, but once you do, your body will thank you.
Clean Up Your Diet It's probably not much of a surprise that the pizza you ate yesterday wasn't sitting well by the time you brushed your teeth before bed. Ditch inflammatory foods, sugar, and anything else that could be causing sleep disturbances like acid reflux and indigestion for a better rest.
Reduce Stress Feeling a little worried about that project that's due early next week? From work to relationships to difficulties with finances, reducing stress is often easier said than done. You might have to think outside the box a little, but coming up with ways you can change your lifestyle to reduce stress can help rest your mind and relax your body when it's time for sleep.
Cut The Caffeine No one wants to hear that they should give up their morning java, especially if they're already feeling like they need a jump start. But if you're having sleep trouble, it's important to consider reducing your caffeine consumption, particularly within 6 hours of bedtime. You might not notice a difference right away, but if you dodge caffeine for a few days, you'll probably find you're sleeping better.
Use a High-Quality, All-Natural Mattress Cheaping out on your mattress purchase means you could be cheating yourself out of some invaluable, high-quality sleep time. When shopping for a mattress, it's important to find one that's made from all-natural materials so that you can avoid any off-gassing from petroleum-based foams that can smell harsh and reduce your sleep quality. To top it off, synthetic fibers like memory foam and polyester make it harder for our bodies to regulate their temperatures. Shoot for mattresses and toppers made out of natural fibers like ecofoam, natural latex, cotton and wool so you can sleep easier and more comfortably.
Consider a Weighted Blanket for Anxiety If anxious thoughts are keeping you up at night, a weighted blanket might be the perfect fit for you. Weighted blankets work by providing deep pressure touch stimulation without uncomfortable restriction. The deep pressure from the weight of the blanket causes the body to produce serotonin and endorphins all night long while you sleep. Serotonin and endorphins are necessary to help us feel relaxed and calm.
Say Goodbye to Screen Time Before Bed Studies have found that people who use phones, iPads, light-emitting eReaders and other similar devices at bedtime take longer to fall asleep and have disrupted circadian rhythms. If you're going to read before bed to relax, stick to books and ditch the screen.
Keep Your Bedroom Cool Don't make it so cold that you're uncomfortable, but research suggests sleeping in cooler environments as low as 66 degrees can help you sleep better.
Reduce Clutter in Your Bedroom Marie Kondo, author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, says "A messy room equals a messy mind". If your sleeping space is cluttered and full of distractions, you might have trouble relaxing and getting to sleep. Clear the clutter and see what happens!
