The season of epic eating and drinking is (mostly) behind us. And whilst we savoured every moment of the silly season, in its wake we often feel heavy, bloated and out of balance.
The new year is also the time when we tend to contemplate our health goals and the changes we want to make for the new year. Perhaps you want to have better energy levels or achieve healthy and sustainable weight loss.
You might be aiming to:
☕ Drink less coffee/alcohol
🥬 Eat more plants
👟 Do more consistent movement
💭 Be more intentional about your nutrition
Straight up we'll say that there are no quick fixes here. Good health is a long game that requires you to show up consistently across all areas of your health.
But whatever your health and wellness goals, a cleanse can be an excellent way to say goodbye to habits that are no longer serving you and establish new ones that move you towards your goals.
When it comes to nutrition, our baseline efforts often come down to established habits and our emotional relationships with food. A cleanse, during which you eliminate processed foods and common toxins/allergens and replace them with nutritious and easy-to-digest cold-pressed fruits and veggies, can help you to break the chain of bad habits and build more intentional ones.
Beyond the physical benefits (which you can read more about here) the discipline involved in a juice cleanse can help you to:
💫 Tune in with your body's hunger cues to separate true hunger from habit/boredom/thirst
💫 Recognise unhealthy emotional and social triggers relating to food and develop new habits to address these
💫 Remind you that do you have choices and willpower when it comes to what you eat
💫 Reset your personal boundaries about how much alcohol/coffee/sugar etc you choose to consume
As you emerge from your cleanse, you should find that you have a few new tools in your toolkit that you can build on into lasting habits, helping you to show up consistently for your health goals.
In our experience, the best results come from a 3 day cleanse program (including proper preparation and follow up, which you can read more about here).
As a chance to pause and reflect, a juice cleanse can be a really powerful and transformational tool to help you achieve your health goals, well beyond the cleanse itself.
