Cleansing with the Seasons

by Olivia Cartwright,
 
We always recommend a cleanse with the change of the seasons. It’s a great opportunity to hit the reset button, “wipe your slate clean” and forge better habits in the new season to come. Cleansing now is the perfect juncture as the body prepares for the winter. It’s a time of rest, energy conservation and turning inward. Take this time for you, slow it down and ease into the cleansing process. 

Summer is always inevitably a season of indulgence, with sundowners, holidays and bbq’s every weekend. It’s safe to say all ideas of routine go out the window. Now is your chance to get back on track and get a head start before New Year. Our bodies are designed to work in rhythm with nature. As the leaves fall and animals begin to hibernate so should we. Enjoy the opportunity to embrace stillness and rest.

Schedule your cleanse carefully and really take the time to enjoy the process. Book a massage, go for long walks, sign up for a hatha yoga class, run yourself an epsom salt bath. There a plenty of ways to distract yourself and take it slow, any excuse for a little guilt free Netflix! 

Top tip! Enjoy GBBO but don’t participate...maybe Strictly would be better for you!!!
