You may have heard of the Paleo Diet by now, and the word «paleo» may give you mental images of a caveman hunting down a buffalo with a spear and eating the raw meat like an animal himself. But what you don’t get, is how this will translate into modern life, and how it comes together in everyday life. But not to worry, my friend, for I shall explain!
Living a natural life has many aspects to it. How and what we eat will affect most everything in our lives, as it is in direct corealation to energy levels, moods (and thereby relationships and parenting as well), health and the family budget, so it might be worth to evaluate your diet once in a while. You won’t be able to function right if you eat a poor diet, it’s as simple as that. Eating natural foods is also a great way to connect with nature and maintain that link in everyday life, as an added bonus for your soul.
One of the main aspects of being a natural parent, is to tend to the child’s natural needs. As I am sure you are well aware of, babies come into this life with a set of abilities and expectations of the world around them. Many of those are simply called reflexes, and every woman with long hair holding a baby in her arms will have felt that full grasp – pun intended. And for those of you who haven’t: babies can get a really strong grip if they get a fist-ful of hair, and they won’t let go. They can’t, either, because they have yet to develop control over their muscles. It’s all reflexes, remnants from the time they had to cling to their mother’s fur to stay alive.
