Detox Your Life
they are deeply rooted and have helped me build the strength I have right now. Referring to them as my core felt natural, it's from that place that I make my decisions and feel most connected. In my program they're all part of my process, however not necessarily occurring in any specific order. Working from a combination of structure and intuition has been an approach I embrace, I've found it advantageous in being able to help my clients accomplish whatever it is they set out to do.
Which ones resonate with you?
Are thoughts running through your head like a CNN ticker tape? Do you find it difficult to quiet the monkey mind that sabotages your efforts? I want to help you cultivate a positive mindset, get centered, and expand. Rid yourself of the "busy toxin"; let's identify opportunities and detox habits that sidetrack those efforts. Once I committed to the first step, I felt a sense of accomplishment and momentum started to build; I harnessed that momentum and worked through the remaining steps. And, as I did, my life started falling into place with ease.
- Motivation: What will? Let's identify the trigger that helps you gain a sense of accomplishment.
- Breathe: Yes, it sounds so simple. However, many of us forget to do this, it's an epidemic. We'll discuss simple practices to tune in and take a moment to breathe.
- Be Present: Make a commitment to live in the here and now. Although it may have shaped you, I'll help you say good-bye to a past that no longer serves you. And, we'll concentrate on eliminating the desire to future-trip.
- Meditate: Only 5 minutes, that's all you need before you go to sleep, or upon waking--bonus points for both! We'll discuss ways you can integrate this into your day while on your commute, in carpool, or at lunch. It can also set your mind at ease if you're waking up in the middle of the night. When I began, 3 minutes was my limit, however over time I've increased that number to 12 minutes. It's amazing!
- Set Intentions: What do you see happening in your life? What big dreams do you still have that CAN come true? You'd be surprised at the power of stating your intentions out loud. Or my favorite, putting pen to paper=journaling. In fact, this practice has the power to help you become physically, emotionally, and mentally healthier. For the tech-obsessed, what about a phone app? Let's find the optimum way for you to commit to this powerful act that aligns with your lifestyle.
Focus on Food:
Do you feel confident choosing the right foods when buying groceries? How do you feel inside and out? Food is vitality, energy, and healing. Be your most radiant self, this is possible by eating the right foods. Food is information—send your body the right message. We'll start with a strong foundation covering the basics.
- Ingredient Education: We'll examine my "top 3", and what you need to know about each. I feel strongly about this. I want to help you get comfortable identifying ingredients so you can make better decisions on your own. Radiance not only comes from how you're fueling your body, but also from how confident you feel about the why behind those decisions.
- Detox: We'll put your knowledge to work, helping you to confidently purge the bad. Next....
- Upgrade Your Pantry: After we detox, our next step is choosing foods to replace the bad, but with no sacrifice. I'm not a proponent of elimination without compromise, we have choices, they're plentiful. We'll take this knowledge and create a list of real, whole foods helping you to navigate the grocery store with confidence, and ease.
- Organize your kitchen: I'll help create an efficient and attractive space conducive to preparing a good meal. Once we're finished, you may even want to spend time there cooking to create your own good health!
WHOLE Body Care:
Did you know? Some chemicals found in lotions, shampoos, deodorants, etc. are toxic. Plastic products are the worst offenders covering everything from your foods to cooking utensils, to the liners in our showers. In my opinion, we come into contact with too much plastic. What if we took back the power in our homes, and cut back on the items containing plastic? It's possible, we can approach this gradually with little to no major investment. I want to do right by my body, this is a vital step worth the effort.
- Do You Free?: Although not a quick transition, being free of shampoo, soap, and deodorant is worth it. I've been shampoo-free and soap-free for two years now, no regrets. My hair and skin have never looked, or felt better, the patches of eczema quickly faded leaving me with oh-so smooth skin. And, packing for a trip is a cinch, the less decisions the better! If you decide to try it, I'll support you through the rough spots. What have you go to lose?
- Body Products: Seek out products free of harmful chemicals. I regularly visit Environmental Working Group (EWG) to make better decisions when I'm shopping for sunscreen, toothpaste, and deodorant. We can take an inventory of your products to determine what's safe, or not, then search for better choices.
- Food Storage: Consider a transition from plastic to glass to store leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer, in fact, after thawing the glass can go straight to the oven. Another step in the right direction is buying bulk foods like spices, beans, grains, and even peanut butter. If you pack your lunch, participate in potlucks, etc. and need light-weight containers, opt for BPA-free or metal. Making the switch was a gradual one for me, I'd love to guide you for an easier transition.
Routines & You:
I know, I know, you've got plenty of things happening in your world. Career, kids, relationship, etc. how why do you fit one more "to do" on your list? Doing something for yourself, even if it's every once in a while, SHOULD NOT be a luxury. Yes, I know the word should is powerful, however dedicating time to you is crucial for you, your health, and those around you.
- Down-Time: What does down-time mean to you? Honoring yourself with a nap, walk, or drive in the country? Clearing your head can contribute to your creativity, and help you gain a fresh, new perspective on life--who doesn't need that? By the way, when I say down-time, I don't mean pulling out your phone to fill in the gap. Let it all go. Let's discuss ways you can check out, whether it's for a few minutes or days, whatever is most comfortable to you.
- Exercise: A body in motion stays in motion, truth. We all have fascia that envelopes our muscles, if you are not moving your fascia, then it will stop moving. Unfortunately, this leaves you at risk for aches, pains, and unnecessary suffering. I know, it happened to me, read about here. Yoga works for me, let's find a practice that helps you move too. Maybe it's dance, walking, or yoga? Please choose one, your body will thank you.
- Brain Health: Even though it's officially not a muscle, the behavior is very similar--you must use it, or lose it! What about learning a new language, or preparing a new recipe? Or, even choosing an alternate driving route can strengthen your brain. What would you choose to change things up?
“Evidence suggests mental stimulation improves brain function and reduces the risk of cognitive decline and related diseases. Mental stimulation or “exercise” helps the brain grow stronger, faster and better able to complete the millions of daily tasks it is charged with, from memory to problem solving to attention; not to mention controlling every aspect of the rest of the body. ”
— to your Health
- Relationships: This may be met with resistance, and that's okay. No matter what age you are you shouldn't have to relinquish your precious energy or time to a toxic relationship, one that causes you to feel anger, fear, or inferior. However, as we age, I realize you may feel like making friends is more difficult. But, if those friendships bring heartache and suffering, they have the potential to be counter-productive to your health. If you need support, guidance, or understanding around this subject, let me be your sounding board.
Whether it's your personal or professional space, when it's in order, you're free to live your life with more ease. Sometimes we're too attached to our stuff, finding someone to steer and help you make the right decisions is important.
- Edit: Less is more. Should it stay, or should it go? Dedicating valuable space to an item that no longer brings you joy? Remove it from where it resides, set it aside, and marinate on it. This is a powerful practice that has cast a new perspective on how I view my stuff. Is it necessary?
- Organize: When you find the right location for your stuff, your space can operate like a well-oiled machine. Find what you need more quickly. When you edit, decision making is a breeze. Slowly but surely I've been eliminating items from my wardrobe that no longer represent me, I've saved precious time, feel empowered by wearing what makes me feel good, and save money by only buying what it's important to me.
- Finesse: Tweak, arrange, and style. Ability to see the bigger picture and execute the right changes in a resourceful way.
