A photo from the past week; a visual gratitude journal, of sorts. If you have a blog and want to play along at home, please share by linking to your photo in the comments!
The past week, I’ve been doing the Reboot Your Life cleanse from the guy who did the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead film. I am none of those things, but I’d like to avoid all of them for as long as possible.
I am very grateful to have had this time to look after my wellbeing. My husband was out of town and so it was the perfect time to do a juice cleanse; there was no one muching on crackers to torture me. I ate super uber well, took baths with Epsom salts, burned incense, meditated twice a day, got a massage and listened to Gregorian chants.
It’s not that I can’t do those things when J is home; I do. I just tend to do them less frequently and with less intention. (OK, I do all of that except rock out to the Gregorian chants. The poor man has his limits.)
In the course of regular life, J and I have our habits. Not that I don’t love The-Daily-Show-and-cuddling-on-the-couch-with-the-dog routine. I do. But it was nice to change things up and participate in some deliberate and mindful self care.
I’ve never done a cleanse before, but I liked this one. After the first day when I thought I was gonna die, went pretty well.
How was your week?
