detoxify & declutter

I’ve been trying to come up with a game plan on how to start incorporating the changes I want to make into my life. I’ve been journaling and making lists. I’ve been taking a moment to think before I speak or react. It’s just been baby steps on working towards my goals.

I think the first major thing I need to accomplish will be detoxifying and decluttering my entire life….physically and mentally. A fresh start with a clean slate. (seems to be a recurring wish for my life lately)

I realized that my home is full of useless junk and negative energy so I’ve been making a list of projects that need doing around my house. Mainly, I think I just need to deep clean and organize everything, getting rid of things I don’t want or need. Then I need to smudge my entire home, clearing out all the stale or negative energy.

I need to do the same for my body and mind. For my body, I can cleanse it of processed foods and sugars and chemicals that are slowly killing me. I need to start eating better to nourish and heal my body. I need to do this, no question, to regain my health and restore my vitality. Then I can begin to unblock and align the energy centers in my body (chakras) for maximum results.

Then it will just be a matter of decluttering my mind….through meditation, grounding and writing….to restore balance to my emotional and intellectual health.

I’m excited and anxious to accomplish these goals in my life. I’ve already begun….eating healthier, cleaning, meditating, etc..

It’s just the beginning and it’s a day to day ongoing process.

Even though I have been sick for the last few days, I have kept a positive outlook. Physically, I have felt horrible…weak and tired, sore and achey, relentlessly coughing, back pain, non-stop headache…but I’ve still tried to do a few small things to keep myself motivated. I’ve done a little laundry and cleaned my desk in my bedroom. I’ve been writing some. And because this morning was the first time in a few days that I’ve really felt like eating, I even felt ambitious enough to put on a pot of my homemade chicken noodle soup. So, that will be cooking all day, ready for us to enjoy tonight. I can’t wait, considering this is what my “diet” has consisted of for the last 2 days….

Herbal tea, raw honey, lemon and Zarbee’s Organic honey & citrus cough drops.

I may have only accomplished a few small things in the way of my goals this week but I needed to listen to my body…to rest and relax. So, I’ve mostly been cozied up in my bed, napping and binge watching TV for 2 days. But it’s all part of my self care and the best way to nurse myself back to health right now.

Anyway, I’m starting to feel slightly better and I hope to be at 100% by the weekend.

Like I said….baby steps.
