DETOX Shouldn’t be a chore ..just a brilliant way to pamper and soothe your body back to its very best. Detoxing is not just about the foods you eat or don’t eat or fluids you consume or do not consume, it is much more!
The first step of the DETOX process that I want you to have a look at is , De-cluttering. Clutter can be defined as mess, disorder, confusion or untidiness that can arise due to poor working habits, lack of space, lack of clear thinking, lack of time, overwork and much more. When this happens continuously you can be left feeling tired and drained and feeling even more muddled.
Where exactly have you got clutter in your life, is it old newspapers everywhere, is it past Christmas cards, birthday cards for the past 10 years that you can’t let go off, is it clothes that you have never worn or don’t really like but you don’t want to throw them out because of the waste factor? Is it in your kitchen presses, hot press, spare bedroom, is it bits and pieces that you keep thinking oh someday I will use that? Is it bad habits or negative thoughts?
Are all of these things clogging up your life? When there are piles of clutter all around you in different aspects of your life it can really hold you back. Your spirits may drop every time you look at the mess. You may feel it reflects how bad a housekeeper you are as you simply don’t have the energy to do it. First steps. Do not waste time and energy criticising yourself. Look around you and see where you need to de-clutter. Start one place at a time or just to do one task to get you started. Ask for some help if you need to. Clutter can put you in bad form and make you tired. Decide today where you are going to de-clutter.? Out with the old..in with the new…this makes room for new things, people, experiences in your life…
Eliminate Stress.. Stress means different things to different people. In the dictionary stress is defined as ‘Stress is an internal response to stimuli or pressures that challenge an organism’s ability to adapt or cope, disrupting homeostasis (internal balance)’ or simply put ‘Is there something or someone in your life testing your patience right now?
Is it the long commute, Are you feeling too tired and irritable to cope with the demands of your kids or family? Is your life too busy? Do you take on too much and burn yourself out? I see this everyday with people I treat. A little stress is good as it challenges us and gets our adrenaline pumping. Our bodies adapt well to short periods of stress. However, when it continues for a prolonged period the body simple runs out of fuel and energy and becomes exhausted. The result is your immune system becomes run down and you become so tired you do not have time nor energy to look after yourself. This further results in You not eating properly, not taking regular exercise or taking enough time out for yourself. The vicious circle continues until you become ill. I work with people everyday to help them change and to reboot.Simple changes make the world of difference. See you next week, have a good one ! Gertrude x
