Take Care of Yourself - Holistic Detox

DSCN0584


I finalized my winter detox E-Quipment Kit for 2014 and made it available for purchase last week. Each season, I offer a detox that focuses on foods and rhythms of the season. (See 12 Days of Detox for more information.)


But detox is not only about food. A holistic detox focuses on more than diet.  Here are some ways to detox mind and spirit as well.

  • Draw closer to God
  • Pray or meditate on scripture
  • Rest
  • Read
  • Journal
  • Reevaluate and repair relationships
  • Reevaluate lifestyle
  • Pamper yourself with baths, massage, aromatherapy…
  • Learn to be kind to yourself and others
  • Jump-start creativity
  • Laugh
  • Learn how to cook new foods
  • Be adventuresome
  • Try something new

These goals might seem even more difficult to obtain than simply changing our diet! We are all so busy that the above list might seem attainable only for those with a lot more time on their hands than we have!


Please don't despair. Use this list to inspire you. Choose a few things that you want to add into your life. Feeling guilty about your priorities is not the goal. Reevaluating priorities however, and taking care of yourself can and should be freeing.


Here are some helpful resources, that have benefited me:

CHRISTIAN MEDITATION

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall MEDITATE in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” (Joshua 1:8)


You can dowload a guide to Christian Meditation along with a CD that includes 9 tracts of soaking music with 40 passages from the Psalms, a workbook, a journal, and more. I have this and it has really helped me get into a habit of meditating on scripture.


THE BIBLE
