When I woke up to begin day four of the Spring Detox I found myself feeling nauseous and weak. Not the best way to start a day. However, rather than fight it I let myself rest in bed a little bit longer – that is the good thing about setting the alarm for much earlier than you need to wake-up, then you have time to go back to bed if you need to! (I only do this when I’m detoxing) Once I had a little bit more time in bed and drank a juice and lots of water I was feeling all better and ready to take on the day! Sometimes a little patience and rest is the cure.
The juices were as delicious as yesterday – pear, young love, lemonade, green lemonade, and lemon lime smoothie. The lemon lime smoothie was a nice treat, much heavier than the other juices and a great way to end the day. It is nice to drink something a little heartier to make up for the lack of solid food for 2 days.
Not surprisingly, I imagined I could do a lot more this week than I did (the picture above is of my messy files that I keep putting off and not organizing). So the spring cleaning of my apartment will continue through the weekend and into next week. There is no rush since it is still snowing outside! Of course it can be hard to not feel stressed when there is still a long list of things to do.
Rather than becoming stressed by not being able to get everything done an approach to stress free organizing is scheduling 30 minutes of your day and pick one section of your bedroom or office. Then tackle just that one area in those 30 minutes. Doing this a few times a week will feel like reorganizing and de-cluttering is a breeze rather than something hanging over your head.
Try it out and see how it goes!
