So I have been on a detox for 10 days in the last 2 weeks and I can absolutely say I
feel lighter in my body and more free in my mind afterwards.
I know there is so much going on my life on a daily basis that from time to time I need to take extra some extra space for myself and letting go of unwanted things and toxins in my life.
If you ask me “detox” is a word that is used in way too many forms and varieties in our modern society.
What it really means is eliminating toxins out of your life.
That includes your body, your mind and yes – your life. There is no real use of just detoxing the body when you have the same toxic thoughts in your head or toxic environment around you.
For having a good result when being on a detox program I recommend not only changing your diet but also identifying toxins in your life and if possible working on eliminating them. This can be toxic habits like checking your smartphone before going to sleep, going out of the house without breakfast and also toxic environments like relationships that no longer serve you or a workspace full of electro smog. I know this is not an overnight thing and also not done in 10 days but the first step is becoming aware of it. What makes you feel good and what does not? Start there and go in baby steps. You got this!
So a 10-Day Detox is just a start but there is also a lot you can do already in 10 days.
Here I share with you what my personal detox plan looked like and some tips for you.
I am not a fan of strict rules, because if you are just a little bit like me, unconsciously we like to break them.
Also everybody is so different and I believe in honoring our individual self first.
But definetly we need guidelines and a plan to start detoxing our life.
– 100 % plantbased diet (including nuts and seeds)
– no refined sugar, alcohol, caffeine and gluten
– raw until noon ( I prefer juices and smoothies)
– Matcha Detox Lemonade everyday (you can find the recipe already online)
– as many greens as possible
– make time for meditation, yoga and being in nature
– journal your thoughts
– less social commitments
-turmeric (capsules or liquid extract)
-miso soup (when its colder)
-nice cream (when its warm)
-same as breakfast
-salads in all varieties
-salads in all varieties
-steamed vegetables with rice
-sweet potatoe oven fried
