Daily Detox List

Mental Detox

To support your health at the highest most effective level, your own personal mental assessment and detox of your thoughts are key.

If your habitual thoughts are good, positive and hopeful, you’re on the right track. If your daily habitual thoughts are negative, fearful or victim based, begin to notice how they’re affecting your life. Soothe yourself and move through the physical sensation of the upset and you’ll begin giving your mind the space to more easily move in the direction of the things you want.  Sessions with me can help you recognize where you’re holding old energy and how to shift it.

Physically Detoxing Your Body

At the most basic physical level… limit your intake/exposure and begin to remove from your body, the heavy metals and toxins accumulated from what we breathe, eat, drink and touch.

Browse through the items below and start with things that are easy for you. Lightly and easily work toward incorporating more and more ideas from the list. Easy does it.

Anything you do with intention works.

Relax about everything and do what’s right in front of you.

It’s all energy and it’s all moving.
