Shaun and I have always been very conscious on what we put into our bodies. So, we decided to look into what we are body on our bodies as well. We discussed it on our latest podcast episode 179 if you want to hear more. I wanted to bring this up because it has made me realize that technology is going to be our demize.
“I fear the day when the technology overlaps with our humanity. The world will only have a generation of idiots” – Albert Einstein
This quote truly embodies what is happening in our society currently. We have made a technology that will now write kids essays for them, and will ruin any type of creative writing. People are looking at their phone screens more than they are on what is around them. More importantly, I realized there are so many life skills I have not learned because of technology.
Shaun and I have been trying to be more sustainable by using natural ingredients, and not just for the environment but for our own health. While trying to do this, we have to use technology that we are trying to stay away from, to learn all of these things. At some point in time, it was passed down generation to generation on how to make laundry detergent, deodorant, cleaning supplies, natural remedies. Within the last two generations, those skills have been lost and now we need to teach ourselves how to do it.
I am thirty years old and I don’t know how to make a loaf of bread. Sure, I can look it up online or read a recipe book but at some point in time, people just knew how to do that. These modern day conveniences have made a lose the art of living off of the land.
I am excited to be trying new things and I think down the line I will make a sustainability recipe book. It won’t just include food, but deodorant and the like. I want to see how much better my body feels after cleansing it of most of the poisons that surround us now. Don’t take what I say as a fact either. Question everything. Look up homesteaders on Instagram and see some of the things that they are making to help themselves. It is quite an interesting world out there that we are missing or not taking advantage of. I know I just said technology is ruining us, but at least use it for educational pieces that allow you to better yourself somehow.
