Hard Times & Hope

I am learning a lot lately about how our beliefs impact our life. Like our whole life– every aspect from our health, to relationships, to our happiness, to our finances and everything in between. We each acquire beliefs from when we are young, and we carry those beliefs into adulthood. Many times, we don’t even realize these beliefs, but everything we do is based on them because we operate subconsciously from the beliefs in our head. The only way to change things is to change the beliefs that we have,and the first step is recognizing them. It is a journey, for sure, but one that can be done. If you need any help or would like to meet up for coffee to talk more, let me know! The good news is–I am in control of my life and my future, and you can be, too!

Beginning

So, I started a journey about a year or so ago, and I thought I would journal about my health journey. However, as I started going along, I began to realize that my growth has been in my personal journey more than anything else; which, for the record, I feel is connected to my health journey.

This started from a desire to change things in my life, and being frustrated that nothing was changing. You see, when I was younger, I had these big dreams and visions of being happy and rich, which I thought of as equal. But then as life went on, I had financial struggles, relationship struggles, emotional struggles, and wanted so much better for my 3 kids, and had no idea where to begin. I found myself at 41 years old, and still felt like I was missing something.

This is where my journey began. . .

Detox

Detox for the body is important for the liver, kidneys, and gallbladder, as well as our colon. We can build up an abundance of toxins and nasty stuff, so our body needs to rid itself of that so it won’t cause disease later.

I just finished a 7 day detox, and I will be honest, it was the first time I have done a detox. I feel so much better after the fact, but it was tough for me. I struggled with cutting out the coffee in the morning, and had a headache the first 2 days. After that, it was better, but I felt I was lacking some energy. It really made me aware how much I rely on caffeine in the morning, and that is something I really had to look at.

I did finish out the 7 days, which was important for me to finish out on what I had committed to, even though I wanted to quit early. It was a great experience, and I would encourage a detox maybe yearly. It also forced me to realize that I didn’t eat quite as healthy as I thought I did, so I am looking for ways to add more veggies into my diet, and I will be posting some recipes on this site. What are some detox programs you have tried? How did you do??

Wellness

Wellness is very important to me, not just what I eat, but the whole person. It is vital to take care of my mind, my soul, my body, and my emotions. I am on a journey to do this, and I would like to share it with you!
