This time of the year is such a conundrum.
We celebrate the winter holidays with gifts, parties, and events galore. Yet, the winter evokes a time of slowing down, hibernating, and resting for the year ahead. This is also one of the most consequential reasons we trip ourselves up. We surround ourselves with tantalizing foods, sugary treats, and over stimulate our senses, when our bodies are asking to take a break from all the toxins we accumulate throughout the year.
Revitalizing our body begins with letting go, wiping the slate clean, and giving our bodies a chance to recuperate from all that we have put them through.
Letting go of what’s holding you back can feel hard, but it doesn’t have to be! Transforming the way you feel begins with an easy cleanse, releasing the build up in our bodies. It’s why I’m excited to partner with Angela Sydnes of Wildcrafted Way for Wildcrafted Cleanses: Winter Recharge – a 10 Day Body and Soul Revolution starting on February 3rd.
A cleanse is not just about creating a New Years resolution to lose 15 nagging pounds. Our bodies are literally asking us for a reboot. We need to give ourselves time to shed all that extra stuff we carry around, so we can dance with our shoes off!
No matter what nutritional program you are embracing or embarking on, the earth’s natural resources can support you, physically and emotionally!
Top 5 Tips for Supporting Your Health Program
1. Begin the day with lemon water.
While it may be the latest craze to start your day with hot lemon water, Vitamin C enhances mineral absorption, and is the perfect way start a detox or cleanse. Lemon water also balances pH levels in the body, creating an alkalizing effect. And, it’s a refreshing way to start your day!
2. Embrace herbal teas!
If you are a morning coffee drinker looking to stave off the acidic effects of caffeine, herbal teas are the perfect substitution. But it’s not just about the physical effects! Distinct herbal combinations enhance sleep, reduce stress, or increase flow and energy. Check out my amazing handcrafted organic herbal teas here.
3.Take a deep breath – outside.
If you’re like me, the latest winter weather front has everyone heading indoors. But after a while, we can get cabin fever. Don’t miss out on the sun’s rays of Vitamin D during a winter wonderland break. Stepping outside, even for a moment, can wake up our natural senses.
4. Healing begins with your gut.
Did you know that out digestive system is home to one trillion microorganisms? That’s a lot of zero’s. Gut flora comprises more than 75% of our immune system, protecting our bodies form infection, and regulates metabolism.
5. Reboot begins with Rest.
Since the winter weather isn’t finished with us yet, this is the perfect time to de-stress our bodies. Discover individual or group meditation, yoga or seep in silence to let your body seep in relaxation.
While the winter is a time to retreat indoors, it also gives us an opportunity to reflect on the past year, and start planning for the year ahead. It’s not just about what we want to do, it’s starts with who we want to be.
Who are you in relationship to yourself and others around you? Every aspect of the earth’s flow and resources are there to support you.
