I love the energy of SPRINGTIME, it is oh so delightful. Nature flourishes this season and we are meant to flourish too.
There is more light, more sun, more warmth, more flowers, and the promise of much more to come. AND, the truth is, In order to gather the energy that we need for this springtime BURST, we must shed the heavy coat that has served its purpose. A NEW LIFE awaits.
TO HARNESS ALL OF THIS creativity our Body must be up to the task. A Spring CLEANSE can help to hit the reset button on our health.
These are my top 3 reasons to cleanse
1. A crystal clear mind
2. More connection to my body and my purpose
3. Truly thriving rather than surviving
As beautiful as these reasons sound the reality is that a cleanse takes planning and commitment. We have all been in that place of saying we want and are going to do something and when the time comes, it never happens. Well, let me just say: I am unwilling to let you settle for anything less than what you want from your life. Here I have presented 4 steps to getting clear on your springtime cleanse, which is a chance for our body to get up to speed and to get in peak condition for what is already here and all that is to come.
Get Clear on Your Cleanse
Step 1: The Clearing
Go through your house (food, cleaning supplies, and personal care products) read through the ingredients and get rid of foods that are high in processed sugars and have ingredients that you don’t know or understand.
Step 2: Length of Cleanse
Choose the how long you want to be on your cleanse. Even one day can be beneficial 3-7 days will create more impact on your overall health and vitality. Believe it or not when you get into the rhythm of what works sometimes you feel the urge to keep things going.
Step 3: Level of Impact
Decide how far you want to go and in that create some clear boundaries for the duration of your cleanse.
Mild: Avoid all animal foods, refined oils and processed sugars
Medium: All of the above plus eliminate all caffeine and even high quality sweetners like raw honey, maple syrup, and coconut sugar.
Hot: All of the above including news, TV, internet, and socially related smart phone use.
Step 4: Make a Plan
- Map out each day you will be on your cleanse so you are clear about what you need to buy and the time you need to schedule to meet your goals. Choose the life and food rituals that you can commit to 100%
My challenge to you is to spend some time thinking about what commitment means to you. Set yourself up for success by looking at your calendar and deciding when a good time to start would be. Make a plan of what could get in your way. Let me know in the comments what your favorite cleanse for springtime entails. How do you prepare yourself?
