So why did I choose to do a cleanse now even if it is very late in the year? This is because I didn’t feel comfortable in my body and I have been through some major milestones and felt it was time to start a new chapter. Cleanses for me, have always been a way to get rid of the old and accept the new. And I can truly tell that my entire being is grateful for this ‘down’ time to recuperate, clean and repair. As I mentioned beforehand, I usually prefer to do cleanses in the spring. After all, it is when everything comes alive again, when our favorite detox plants (dandelions) come to life and when we as humans feel our energy level rise up. Don’t get me wrong, one can experience all these things pretty much at any time of the year, but for many different reasons, spring is THE best time.
So what am I doing to keep busy and my mind off food? The same as usual I guess. It is actually easier to focus on the fasting part of the cleanse then one might think. I have my special lemonade to keep me going, I have my psyllium and montmorillonite to help in the cleansing and detox portion. I also use my Detox herbal tea blend that you can find HERE. To that, I add my regular vitamins, minerals and health practice. Well, in all honesty because my goal is to have a longer cleanse, I am limiting my exercising. Last spring during my cleanse, I was able to do full out exercise sessions, but I was also focusing on doing a 4 day cleanse with a liver detox. This time, I am not sure I am going to go for a liver detox. It is demanding on the body and I am truly not certain to want to undertake that during these colder days.
For the moment, I am taking it one day at a time and we will see how it plays out. Staying open and allowing oneself to live a positive experience is what makes the entire difference in accomplishing a great cleanse.
See you tomorrow for more power of Fasting!
