We all encounter stress on a daily basis: from errands that need to get done, to meetings with other people, to social media that demands our attention, our lives are filled with encounters and tasks that demand energy from us. Mindfulness asks us to focus on turning stress to eustress, or positive stress, whenever possible, and holding space for the negative when we can’t.
So wait, what does that really mean? While it’s not necessarily easy, it is pretty simple: it’s about reframing our thinking and taking steps to make space for mindful living.

When it comes to beauty products, the concept of “ethical” products gets complicated. While issues like animal testing might come to mind right away, there are many other variables to consider when trying to find an ethically made beauty brand. Sustainable Jungle divides these variables into two categories: ingredients and business practices. Products that are made ethically will contain ingredients that are cruelty-free, organic and natural, vegan, and palm oil free. Sustainable and ethical business practices, on the other hand, include ethical sourcing, thoughtful packaging, robust waste and resource management, and charitable giving.
This can be a lot to consider, so this week Mindful Supply wants to highlight some product lines that are ethical.
