When I was younger before any New Year, the end of year one we all celebrate or the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, my mom would be adamant about having the house clean, and I mean sparkly clean!! Even in the dead of a New Jersey winter those windows were getting a clean inside and out. Now as an adult who takes pride in her own home, I find myself doing the exact same thing.
There is something about sitting back and looking at a clean home, don’t you think? You can actually SEE the finished product, the accomplishment so to speak, the glistening stove, the reflection in the crisp clean mirror, no sign of laundry that needs to be folded, and not a single dish in the sink…ahhhh.
No this is not a Jewish guilt blog post to encourage you to get up and clean your home, although it’s probably not a bad idea, but this is about that same squeaky clean and full of pride feeling you can have about yourself, your body, internal organs and all, did I mention your eyes will sparkle?
The word detox is all the rage, and lets face it, it’s been all the rage for a while now. In plain English to detox is to cleanse and get rid of toxins that linger, anywhere. Mould is a toxin, we don’t let mould just hang out and keep breeding in our homes do we? Well guess what you, me, your neighbour, oh and that person sitting next to you who SWEARS they only eats bio dynamic carrots, well they’ve got some toxins too!! You may want to break that to them gently.
We can eat the purest foods, drink copious amounts of Alkaline water, take our chlorophyll, but we live in a world where toxins and pollutants are all around us and they seep into our bodies through the air we breath through our skin and our even our super squeaky clean food that they swear to us is 100% organic. It can’t be helped.
So go have a look in the mirror, the one you are about to clean, have a good look at your skin, the whites of your eyes, your nails, your hair and then sit down for a few minutes and think about the last time you felt great, really great, amazing in fact. Go ahead, you can do this now, I’ll wait, I’m sure there is something I can dust to pass the time.
If you can’t remember the last time you felt amazing, lots of energy, a glowing reflection and a feeling or pure joy and love in your heart, than all of that is your reason to detox! It’s that simple. Not only do your outsides get a boost, shiny hair, radiant skin, but wait until you see how you feel from the inside out, it all comes from the inside out.
I could go on and on about toxic build up in the liver, gall bladder, colon and any other organ, but you can Google that information if you really want to know the details. Your body is your home, the only home you will get. Nope you can’t move and you can’t hire a cleaning lady, you’re all that you’ve got, don’t you want it to be the best home on the block?
I just did a short 3 day juicing and colonic detox and I can’t tell you how much lighter, cleaner and clearer I felt. Work became a breeze, each item on my to-do list got ticked off and the kitchen pantry got the best clean of its life!!
Yep the comments from friends and clients were great, but there is nothing better than the shiny happy sparkly feeling you get from the inside of your own home.
I’ll see you soon.
