I recommend sourcing the file '~/.guix-profile/etc/profile' in your
login shell initialization file. This should handle all the environment
variables you need to use your packages.

For bash, this means doing it in '~/.bash_profile'.

For Zsh, '~/.profile'.

Since it is sourced for *login shells* you will need to log in again, or
start a new login shell like `bash --login`.

The warning about the locales is described later in the installation
instructions. To summarize, you'll also need to set the GUIX_LOCPATH
variable. The whole locales rigamarole will go away soon:
