March is the perfect time to detoxify. In this month, I open my arms to spring and begin my annual ritual, which focuses on three key areas: my body, mind and spirit.
-Each morning I begin with drinking a detox elixir * (mix together the fresh juice of half a lemon, one whole clove of garlic mashed, and I tablespoon of organic olive oil). Do this every morning for three days.
-Drink 8 glasses of water throughout the day.
-Eliminate refined and unnecessary sugar and carbohydrates.
-Dry brush my body with a natural bristle brush.
-Get a lymphatic body massage (this is my signature body treatment and is my absolute talent).
-I review the intentions that I set at the beginning of the year and I make note of my progress.
-I read a couple chapters of a novel each night to let my mind wander into a creative story (it lets my mind relax).
-I practice a “media and device fast” by putting away all devices at nighttime with my family; we all share in “powering down” for two hours each evening. I love the sound of silence.
-I reach out to a different friend each week to schedule some special time to let them know that I am thinking of them.
-I take a leisurely walk three times a week in the bird sanctuary, at a regular pace where I stop and smell the air, listen to the birds chirp and connect with my surroundings.
After a month of detoxing, I know I have created some new healthy habits. I acknowledge and give thanks to my body, which is strong, is leading a good life and has brought me to today.
*If you have any questions about my detox elixir, do not hesitate to reach out to me directly (it sounds intense but it really works)!
