Thoughts and efects after a 4 days detox… :)

Standard

Are you curious about  what happened after a few days following a gentle detox? MaGiC! hahaha. Four days is not enough to feel all the benefits of a detox, actually it is when you start feeling that your body is releasing all the toxins and somehow it makes you want more! As I told you in my last post Laura came to share the experience with me, so here we are with our first green juice, as happy as we could be :)

Although I normally follow a quite healthy diet (quite a lot of raw food, vegan, gluten and sugar-free based), it did have an impact in my body….  I was feeling very light and “high”, hehe (which kind of funny since I never take any drugs). I was missing some energy, but we also did a lot of things, so I guess it is normal…  (Next time I will be resting MUCH more and drinking more water!! hahaha)

The idea was to eat super healthy, exercise, stay away from the social media and re-connect with myself. What really happened is that we talked to many interesting people and we spent some hours talking, walking, cycling, shopping, teaching Spanish, working, resting, cooking, sight-seeing, drinking tea and green juices, having fun and enjoying our healthy food. As a result of all that I leave you my main thoughts:

  • Everything happens for a reason“. There are no mistakes, we are where we are supposed to be
  • After looking back to my life I realised how happy I am for having so many good memories  and lovely experiences… ♥
  • Patience, everything has its right moment
  • Follow your heart, your inner voice or however you wanna call it, it’s always right!
  • I am doing great, I am doing what I am supposed to be doing :)
  • Take action! Baby steps are fine too, but take them!
  • If your body is talking to you, listen! It might be important…
  • You already have all you need, most of the times is right in front of you but you can’t see it…
  • Take some time off, there is no need to be connected to everyone all the time, better to be connected to yourself!

This was just door to a new beginning… It’s time to fly and shine! I am already busy with my next projects, waiting for the right people to come to my life to help me develop them and grow together! In the meantime, I will get started with my baby steps, don’t miss any post, it’s going to be super interesting!

Thanks a lot Laura for such a MAGIC weekend! See you in November Soul Sister… ♥

Cheers!

 

 

Big hug and much love,

3, 2, 1… Ready for the Autumn DeToX! Do you want to join?!?!

Standard

Although I normally follow a quite healthy lifestyle, it’s always good to take some days to detox your body and be more conscious about what’s going on in your life… From my point of view cleansing should not just about the food we are eating but about what is eating us… Therefore I belive it is great to take some time to reconnect with myself, understand what it is that I need or want the most and get rid off what doesn’t serve me anymore. I don’t need to go far away to disconnect from the new technologies or take good care of me and focus, so for this first time I am staying at home! :)

Fortunately, today, my very good friend and soul sister Laura is coming to satay for 5 days to follow the detox and share the experience with me! It is always nice to have the support and have the chance to share what’s going on while eliminating toxins and getting new insights! :) I could not be happier that we are doing this together! Thanks a lot for coming Lau! :)

So what will happen?? Although I will still have a couple of jobs to do (they have nothing to do with my company) WE WILL BE ON HOLIDAYS!! Yesssssssssssss! We will be both off from the internet, mails, newsletters, Fb, whatsapp or whatsoever… You can still reach us by sms and regular phone calls though :P -Like in the old times, you know? hehe-

Regarding food, we will be following a gentle detox plan based on lemon-ginger water in the morning, juices, green smoothies, low-fat raw food and soups (everything Organic as much as possible). I promise we will not be hungry at any moment!

2013-09-14 16.41.59To complement it, we will take time for ourselves in nature: walking, cycling, running (if we still have the energy) or simply contemplating, reading or meditating. Let’s hope the weather will be nice! :) -Otherwise indoor yoga is always a great option!-

And to have fun? Catching up with friends, talking about girly stuff, visit all the second-hand stores and flea markets in town, go to nice cafés (to drink herbal tea, hehe) and chill a bit watching movies! When was it the last time you had time for so many things?

Do you want to join us? Just take some days off then or stay tuned for the next time. I’m preparing a winter detox; I will announce it in advance so that you can start getting mentally and physically ready for it!  

Oucome, thoughts, learning experiences and pictures will come asap! On the meantime, enjoyyyyyyyy!

Big hug and much love,

Eating healthy at the airport??? Yes!!!! :)

IMG_0286Normally I am quite organized and I manage to bring some healthy snacks with me when I’m traveling… However, this time it was a bit of chaos, and I forgot to prepare my lunch, hihi. HELP! Everybody knows an airport is not the best place where you can eat healthy on the go…

Fortunately I knew that at Brussels airport a tasty fresh juice was waiting for me… :)

It’s name is”energetic morning” and it made my lunch! Hahaha 35cl of carrot, root beet, ginger and apple juice…. Of course that is not enough food for a proper lunch, but together with a healthy nut bar I got enough fuel to get to my next destination, home….

How do you manage when traveling???

Big hug and much love,

Sunday without intertnet! What a nice detox! :)

Nature

No, I was not away for the weekend, and yes, I needed to feel a bit disconnected from everything! :) Did it work? OF COURSE! I loved it actually! :) Today it was harder to catch up with all the e-mails, FB, etc, but it was so much worth it that I will definitely make it part of my weekends… (and most evenings too, even if I stay at home and/or have some stuff to do on the internet).

What are the benefits I got from it?

  • I had time for the things I usually postpone: going for a walk, organising my room, cleaning up the house, sit down and relax, read, watch a movie… 
  • I did not have to think about working, I could just enjoy my self and my company! Btw, the fact that it was a sunny day helped a lot! :)
  • During my walk I re-connected with nature and myself
  • I breathed! :)

So, why not to try it too? What are those things you will start doing when doing an internet detox??
