New Years Solutions
by Olivia Cartwright,
It’s that time of year again. The dreaded “ New Year’s Resolutions” have come around again! Most of us start with eager enthusiasm, only to experience a bit of a wobble towards the end of January. Sound familiar?. So why not make this the year you make new habits and set yourself up for success rather than failure. Trust me, it’s easier than you think!
Historically, my January cleanse is my always favourite. You have that boost of motivation which makes you approach it with excitement and exhilaration (like starting a brand new notebook with a pristine page). January is also perfectly set up for cleansing. It’s an indoor month which means you can really ease yourself into the process and truly relax and reset without the guilt. There are far less social engagements and so many people are doing Dry January that you don’ have to miss out on much at all. You can really forge out a proper amount of time to dedicate to your pre and post-cleanse eating.
I truly believe the success of a cleanse is in the pre and post-cleanse eating. It’s all about taking your time before and after your cleanse to slowly reintroduce foods and caffeine and treat yourself gently and with lots of kindness. I like to allocate at least 5 days on either side of a cleanse to prepare my body for the detox and bring food groups back in.
While we are on the subject of motivation, my hot tip is to pre-book! I urge you to harness this tool and schedule your cleanses for the year. If you book them in now, you are less likely to make excuses down the line. We recommend cleansing with the seasons, so with all 4 seasonal cleanses in the diary, you’ve already on the road to success! There is no need to overhaul your whole life but these small tricks can really big change. After all, the futures looking healthy and bright. Happy New Year!
