Social Media Cleanse

It’s time. For a lil’ break. A cleanse, if you will. Sometimes, we need a break from booze, running, or even a friend or family member. Taking a step back can reset and refresh us in a big way.

I’m in. I’m taking this week to step back from the scrolling. Feel free to join me in this social media cleanse. Put down the iphone, X out of Facebook, step outside, have real (face-to-face) conversations (with real, live people) and live your life! Go ahead and delete some apps so you’re not tempted to check ’em every five minutes. While it may not be possible to completely ditch social media all together if your job requires it or you’re just not ready for a full-on break-up, (I hear ya, I’ll still be poking around and sharing some photos) let’s try to avoid the mindless face-time. Maybe even replace it with mindful real-life stuff. Deal? Deal. See you on the other side.

One Healthy Breakdown: Reset THEN reboot.

Why We Should Cleanse for Fall

Fact: fall is the optimal time to cleanse. Just like the trees outside, we turn over new leaves during the autumn season. Our routines change, our priorities change, and our eating habits also change to support optimal health. Although our schedules get busy, it’s important to take some time to rest and rejuvenate our bodies during this time of natural transition.

Simply cleaning out the old and making space for the new. Cleansing will kickstart the digestive system, reboot the organs, and strengthen the immune system to ward off illness this winter. Cleansing with in-season foods makes up for lacking nutrients. For example, less sunlight means less vitamin D. Therefor, we’ve got to get our D through food instead of sunshine. When you hear people say ‘food is thy medicine,’ it’s because eating clean, nutritious foods can actually prevent sickness. No joke.

So, how should we cleanse? Good news! Recent nutrition research opts for whole food cleanses over fasting or juicing. We can avoid sipping our meals, depriving our bodies, and listening to our stomach growling while experiencing major FOMO on life. The Fab Fall Cleanse includes an abundance of real foods, seasonal recipes, and self-care!

It’s no coincidence that fall makes us crave pumpkin, cinnamon, and other warming comfort foods. It’s prime time for these eats, which means that they’re higher in nutrients and lower in price! Herbs and spices actually have the power to raise our body temperature from the inside out. So, get shopping fall’s favorite foods and email kiley@onehealthyhamptons.com to get your five day Fab Fall Cleanse e-program today to give yourself the gift of health this season!
