So it happened…I got Covid, and it was on my BIRTHDAY no less! There were plenty of reasons to feel sorry for myself: I was all alone and sick as a dog on a day meant for celebrating, and maybe worst of all was the new series of “Sex and the City: And Just Like That,” which came out the same day was very sad. It sent me spiraling into a deeply depressed state!
I won’t say anything more about that as I wouldn’t want to spoil it for anyone… but “Really? Why!?”
After getting through the worst of the debilitating body aches and retched fever I was left with an intense, persistent cough and something else… a whole lot of time.
So guess what I did? I dug deep and found the silver lining. Back in October I invested in a 16 day Ayurvedic Fall cleanse. Ayurveda, for those of you who aren’t familiar, is an ancient holistic healing system that focuses on the entire being, not just the diet. Although I had studied Ayurveda for a few years back in my 20s when I got the cleanse instructions I was totally overwhelmed.
I did manage to get all of the “tools” needed to do the cleanse, but couldn’t swing doing all the prep that was required to make the fresh 3 meals a day(no leftovers allowed!) and all the drinks and teas and chews and stews that were also required from scratch each day. But now I had oodles of time. The cleanse consists of meals that are warm, organic, and made of only whole foods. It was perfect to support my recovery!
It’s been nice to have the time and space to do this cleanse and I am grateful for the experience. However, it reminded me of how little time we have when we aren’t stuck in a lockdown. It was also reinforced how important it is to carve out some quality time to take care of ourselves in between all the rushing around. Don’t get me wrong, I love Ayurvedic medicine and will continue to incorporate many of the principles and rituals into my daily practice… but how do we balance both cleansing and living in a busy city outside of quarantine?
This was a reminder to me as to why I created my signature 3-Day Cleanse Experience in the first place! It’s only a few short but effective days and it doesn’t require a lot of confusing timelines, protocols, or supplements. It is designed to create results but also be manageable, even if on a busy schedule.
I love hosting these mini cleanses because those who join get the result they are looking for… a true reset. The three days create a new observation deck from which to move forward with greater clarity and lightness.
This new year ALL are welcome to join me in the next (and maybe last) FREE 3-day cleansing experience! Don’t worry, I will still continue to host these experiences but they may evolve in the future, grow longer and they won’t always be free 🙂
