Why Spring Clean Your Body?

By March 21, 2017 March 27th, 2019 No Comments

Today is the first day of Spring. The birds are singing, the trees are budding, the weeds are growing, the plants are breaking through the soil. Nature is moving out of the dormancy of Winter and embracing the new life of Spring.

Why is Spring a particularly good time
for cleansing the body?

Just like nature itself, our bodies adapt for Winter. We add extra layers of fat to our bodies to handle the colder weather, we feel a little heavier, more lethargic, and our bodies are drier. Now Spring is here, we need to bring in the vitality of new beginnings.

Are you ready to kick start your body
into a wonderful energetic summer?

Take a look at your body. Do you see water? I don’t when I look at mine, yet we know that more than half our body is made up of water. I think if we could see the insides of our bodies we would change so many of our current habits. Pause for a moment and visualise the insides of your body. Consider what is happening inside you right now. We are an amazing piece of recycling machinery. We are still making discoveries on the internal workings of the human body. We abuse our bodies constantly, yet they continue to adapt to so many of these abuses. We should thank them by taking time to remove our foot from the acceleration pedal of our fast paced lives. Take the time to stop and give thanks and acknowledgement to your bodies. Have you noticed how busy everybody is these days?

Simple first steps to become a better you today!

  1. Start your day with a big glass of water! Pour it out the night before and keep it by your bedside. Drink it as soon as you wake up. While you sleep, your body is busy digesting and processing your day’s activity, your organs kick in to do their cleaning routine, and your mind processes your thoughts. This is a lot of work being done, even in sleep! Help the body when you wake by flushing out the waste with some water.
  2. Dump the fizzy drinks, particularly the diet drinks, that shit is killing you! It is full of chemicals that your body gets addicted to, and increases weight gain, the exact opposite of your intended use.
  3. Plant some herbs, mint and basil for example in your garden and add these to your water.
  4. Take a moment upon waking to connect with your breath. Take a few slow breaths in through your nostrils and allow your belly to expand like a big balloon on the inhale, contracting the stomach back toward spine on the exhale.

I have been using my own body as my experimental tool for the past few years. I can help
you learn how to get in touch with your own body.

Join me as I guide you through some of my learnings
in a 6 – 21 day rejuventation.

Self care and self love are not SELFish, you cannot care for
others when you are not at your best.
