Summer is about enjoying the simple things in life, like sitting around sipping on a big glass of rosé over ice, watching an ice cream melt in the afternoon sun, nibbling at a cheese platter on the beach during sunset… The only problem with this sequence is that after a few weeks of all this life enjoyment, I really start to feel it. I’m sluggish, puffy, bloated, and somehow, tired. In general, I don’t feel like my best self. So instead of continuing the cycle, I put together a super-affordable four-step mini mental and physical cleanse to get back on track, especially as the season winds down and we transition to fall.
Let's call it three days of wellness. In my three days, I returned to what I know makes me feel vibrant. I eased into eating healthier the Monday before to alert my body that a shift was coming. Then for just three days, I committed to myself.
