Spring Cleanse

Woman walking along beach

Spring is a time of renewal, recharge and rejuvenation; the season for a full body and soul spring cleanse.

This time of year it’s natural to want to do a bit of a cleanse to shake off those winter doldrums and clean out our bodies the way we do our closets.

There are so many fad cleanses out there that it can be a bit daunting to figure out where to start.

Here are some easy ways to give your body a rest.

Drinking Water To Rehydrate Body

Simple Meals

Eat a very simple diet for seven days: a high-quality protein from food (not a nutrient supplement shake), good-quality fat, and some lightly steamed or raw veggies at each meal, including breakfast.

Maybe add in some superfoods for an energy boost.

Hydration

Start every day with an 8-ounce glass of water with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

Try adding a dash of cayenne for a guaranteed way to get your blood moving.

Staying hydrated stops you from overeating, and it is best to drink lots of water before and after meals.

Water also helps the body detoxify, which keeps the digestive system healthy.

A favourite is cold mint tea with lemon. The lemon juice helps cleanse the liver and aides its ability to remove toxins and fats from the body.

Fibre

Eating high-fibre foods helps the body stay full.

Fibre helps the body eliminate toxins and keeps the digestive system healthy so that the nutrients can be properly absorbed into the body.

Good examples are lentils, beans, collard greens, grapefruit, asparagus, broccoli, and cauliflower. More on superfoods are here

Things to Avoid

Sugar

The highs and lows from sugar cause the body to hold onto weight. Sugar also depresses the immune system and wreaks havoc on many other internal functions.

Instead of soft and energy drinks, try soda water with a splash of lime juice, for example; or a healthy green vegetable juice (cucumber, kale, celery, lemon, ginger).

Alcohol

What? No alcohol? We understand that giving up entirely can be difficult, so instead of going cold turkey, how about aiming to cut down to a light beer, or one glass of wine instead of three.

Caffeine

Caffeine has plenty of benefits, but when doing a spring cleanse, we would recommend giving your liver a break.  Try herbal teas instead.

Dairy And Gluten

These are common triggers of inflammation, and when cleansing it is good to take them out of the diet

Processed Food

Try to avoid these, not just during a detox.

Treat Your Body Right

  • Detoxification can be aided by dry brushing, saunas and steam baths and cold showers.
  • Exercise   can help lower levels of cortisol, a hormone responsible for fat formation in the body.
  • Detoxing Massage  Massage works on your lymphatic system, increases the blood flow around your body, helps with your digestive system and generally pumps your body full of endorphins and other feel good chemicals the healthy way.

Mind Spring Cleanse

Cleansing the mind by shedding negative thoughts and perceptions can take a weight off your whole being. Try these techniques, which may help:

  • Three Good Things – try writing down three things that are going well and why. Do this every day for a week.
  • Signature Strengths – try writing down what you believe are your personal strengths (such as kindness, loyalty), and then use them in a different way daily.
  • Rant Write-down – take several minutes each week and write down every negative thought that comes to mind. Then take that piece of paper and tear it up or bury it.

Soul Spring Cleanse

A spring cleanse is not complete without a soul cleanse.

Try meditating every day, even if it is just a minute or two. All you have to do to meditate is sit quietly for a few moments and let the thoughts come and go and breathe deeply. Be sure to turn off your phone, computer or whatever distracts you. Just be still with yourself.

  • Gratitude

Each day upon waking up, try asking yourself what you’re grateful for. Gratitude lifts the spirit and fills the soul with positivity.

  • Service

Try being of service by giving back to others, even if its just in a small way. It maybe as simple at smiling directly at the person at the checkout in the supermarket.
