Exercise & Yoga
Are very important when preparing for and during your spring detox. Movement allows qi and toxins to flow around your body. Exercise also stimulates bowel movements and sweating to release toxins.

Be Grateful & Prepare For Some Discomfort
Before starting your Spring detox, focus on enjoying those things you love! Savour that glass of wine, enjoy a really beautiful piece of cake and bless your coffee with love! When you enjoy and express gratitude for your food it is more healing for you!
Along with detoxing chemicals, you may clear emotions too. This can cause uncomfortable emotions to arise. Be prepared to coach yourself through this. Let yourself know that this will soon pass and you will feel better everyday. In fact after a few days, you will feel really good!
Sugar, caffeine and alcohol are highly addictive. Many people self-medicate and escape reality through the pleasure obtained from these substances. Sugar is more addictive than heroin.
Look forward to feeling clear in your head and energised Enjoy feeling good! This is what is coming for you when you Spring detox.
