I found a way to keep my skin nourished and looking healthy while being a traveling mama. Sign up for my newsletter (link in bio) for all the details about my new business and safer skincare routine! Food is important, but you can also heal and nourish your body by what you put on it too.
Nature! It is so important to reconnect and reflect on Allah's creation... observing the magnificence of everything.
Families need to plan outdoor time away from digital technology... phones, iPads, games... each week as many times as possible. Just go for a walk, observe nature, feel nature, touch nature, and listen to nature. Cultivate the love of nature in your children's hearts. Talk to them about nature and it’s importance to our life. Allah created the earth for us to live in it and to take care of it. Let children and ourselves connect to it.
One of the significant affects of disconnecting with earth is we slowly start to devalue earth... we start harming and destroying the planet without feeling guilty.
In the Quran, Allah has given humans the responsibility to take care of the planet in Surat Al An'am "And it is He (God) who has made you successors (khala’ifa) upon the earth..." (6:165). When we are disconnected, we don't feel responsible.
Every country has its natural beauty, whether its deserts, mountains, forests, or sea. Move away from the chaos of the city and find a place where you can connect with Allah's creation. Appreciate it, love it, and take care of it. Then, as a family set goals of what are the ways you can preserve nature. For example, you can try reducing the usage of plastic in your home, eating more vegetarian/vegan meals, walking and biking instead of using the car all the time, and so many other ideas.
Share one thing that you do as a family that helps earth!
One year ago today I married my best, doubled the size of my amazing family, and celebrated our new life together as a couple. Thank you God for giving me Matthew. Cheers to our first anniversary and many more to come!💞

How refreshing it must be to have seaweed in your 8-month old fingers rather than plastic... While not an everyday occurrence for us, I look back at this moment compared to what my son plays with on a day to day basis now and wonder how I can bring this into his life more. How do you bring nature into the house? #momentexchange
