Like many of you, I’ve had a lot of experience with cleansing and detoxing. Over the years my idea of what it means has evolved, pretty significantly. “A cleanse” for me, today, is about more than cleaning up the food that goes into my body. It’s about the space around me, the information I’m absorbing and the way that I’m living. By de-cluttering my home I create a sense of calm and open up space for newness to enter. And by choosing to invest my time in things and people that give me energy, as opposed to deplete it, I’m reconnecting with who I am, what I authentically need and want to spend my time doing.
At the end of the day, it’s all a bold demonstration of self-care and this, I’ve grown to know, is the foundation for a rich, full and happy life. This understanding continues to unfold and there’s so much more learn. That said, I wanted to share some resources that have proven meaningful in my quest for clean living.
1. Elena Brower – Elena is a yoga and meditation instructor and author of The Art of Attention. We love her yoga classes at yogaglo.com.
2. Dr. Alejandro Junger – Creator of The Clean Program and author of the Clean series of books (Clean, Clean Eats, Clean Gut). Clean Gut transformed the way that I think about nutrition and health with the notion that gut disfunction is the root of all disease. Check it out.
3. Kris Carr – Kris is a NYT best selling author and one of the first, great creators of wellness content. It all started with her documentary Crazy Sexy Cancer in which documented her diagnosis of a rare and incurable form of cancer and her path to healing and surviving with cancer. You’ve probably heard of Kris because she’s everywhere. She’s been on Oprah.
4. Mind Body Green – A comprehensive, daily resource for whole-self wellness with information on diet, exercise, relationships and mindfulness.
5. Inspired Everyday Living – My good friend Alison and her sister Laura are my absolute favorite authorities on how to intentionally create a home that supports a free’r, lighter and happier life. One of the most valuable things I’ve learned from Alison and Laura is about the impact that clutter has on our lives. That by de-cluttering our space we make room for energy to move in both our homes and our lives. Big things can happen when you clean out your junk drawer!
6. The Minimalists – Musings about a meaningful life with less stuff.
