We are over three weeks into the new year and this is where many start to fall off on their goals or motivations. The past year I worked full steam till the very end, with not much of a break, but I am going to be honest my real motivation was the few weeks I planned off for the beginning of January. I wanted to lay low, gather my thoughts and really just sleep.
The first week was all about health and rejuvenation with re-aligning my mind & body. I ate only raw foods to kickstart my system and help start my first goal of intergrading more of them into my daily eating habits. Yes, the end of the year for me was lots of work but it was also filled with snacking and indulging. While not to be hard on myself I strongly believe balance is so necessary for a productive lifestyle. I feel cleanses are not meant to be done often, but when done properly they can help with healing your body. It is more about having a consistent lifestyle of healthy eating, movement and self care but even as much as you can possibly do at one time we are still subjected to pollutants naturally and let’s be real we get busy, sometimes we just have to get shit done so we allow other things fall by the waist-side. I am definitely guilty of that but it is about doing the best we can and the goal is to make little improvements on one thing at a time, soon enough you will acquire good, long standing healthy habits.
Along with that I mostly relaxed, read and spent some Netflix time with my fiancé & family of two cats. A good staycation was just what I needed! My second week was all about planning, finishing up my home office, brainstorming and feeling out my core values for the 2019. I definitely had just as much fun planning out my year with a shiny my new daily planner.
