new year new skills

Too often, new year’s resolutions are wrapped up in guilt because they involve stopping a bad habit or doing more of something you currently don’t. You know how it goes: ‘I’m going to quit sugar/lose weight/exercise more/stop eating fast food.’ Well, at Organic Life we’ve decided the new year should be less about negativity and shame, and more about focusing on those cool and useful skills you've always wanted to learn. So every day this January, we’re going to bring you a new and specific skill. Always wanted to know how to hem anything? We got that. Want to finally start pickling or baking your very own loaf of sourdough? We've got that, too. Or maybe you want to knit your first scarf. Whether in the kitchen, garden, or home, we've got your 2018 covered with these new skills.
