A few months ago I began a "Half Rule' for myself. This has been a test of how well this rule works for me and should I continue doing it?
The thought came to me as I was washing my hair in the shower; that most of us (myself included) aren't really mindful of how much shampoo we use, so I began using half the amount I usually used. My hair is just as clean. Then I began using half the amount of toothpase and found my teeth are just as clean.
Commercials show us using globs of whatever the product is, and subconciously we take these ads for fact and I am sure all of us have been using way too much of most products in our homes as a result of this advertising.
We moved to Florida where water is very expensive here, and I gladly look for ways of using the half rule on this as well...such as not letting the water run while you brush your teeth.
If you pay attention during your day you will find lots of opportunities to use the Half Rule...and it does work. You save money and in some cases, help create a more green environment as well.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
