It's your time to bloom.
Body and mind spring cleaning routine that helps me to revitalise my body brings back my glowing skin, clear my mind and helps to shed those couple of pounds I have put on through the winter.
It's Spring, nature is waking up, everything is blooming, and so it's time for you to bloom too.
Let me share with you my own recipe for everlasting energy, feeling lighter and glowing skin that any woman can do.
1. Clean your body
Help your body gently wake up from the long winter sleep and feel refreshed. Forget about expensive and unpleasant detox; the only thing your body needs is a lot of water and a chance to do the cleaning job.
Drink 2 - 3l of pure still water every day, skip your morning or lunchtime coffee and opt-in for non-caffeinated beverages. This will allow your lymphatic system to detox your body naturally and provides you with plump and glowing skin.
2. Nourish yourself
Nature is the best aid when it comes to rejuvenating your body and releasing some extra weight. It's time to freshen up what you eat and bring in the rainbow.
Aim for eating 5 cups of colourful vegetables and a couple of portions of fruit a day. Throw away all the packeted food and convenient snacks full of chemicals and refined sugar. Each plate should consist of at least half of the veggies or fruit. Benefits of nutrients drawn directly from whole foods are magickal to your skin and will leave you feeling fabulous and lighter in just a few weeks.
3. Lighten up your mind
Is your life stressful? Do you feel like you have no time for yourself and continually running behind? It's time to spring clean your mind too. Write a list of all tastes you feel like you need to be doing every day and every week, circle those you have to do, the non-negotiable ones and fit them into your schedule. With the rest of the tasks create an urgency list. We often get lost in doing too many things that are not necessary at that moment and sacrificing our own downtime. Schedule in 30min a day where you will focus on yourself. Read a book, have a cuppa or go for a walk. Remember to fill your cup first.
4. Release the old
It's time to do an audit of your habits. We often pick up routines or things that don't serve us well but became part of our life due to convenience or time shortage.
What does not serve you well must go. Is it the new habit of takeaway lunch where you used to make your own? If it is the 5'clock wine to switch off after a stressful day at work?
Don't be afraid to let go and create space for something new.
5. Welcome the new
Nature is blooming and welcoming a new life onto the earth. Let's welcome the new you. Who you are now and who you want to become? What is stopping you from being the best version of yourself? What changes are you
