What is a Self Care Cleanse?
 

The 7 Day Self Care Cleanse:

Self-care is often related to self-love which, I use interchangeably to describe when individuals take time for themselves doing healthy methods of relaxing and or processing emotions. Self-care is the key to being able to say in the present.

AND, when you practice self-care you affirm your own importance and recharge your mind and body. I have some suggestions below if you would like to try my favorite methods for a 7-day self-care cleanse. Try it! You'll feel all good vibes, more energy, and a whole lotta PEACE!

For Funsies, I wanted to include a cool self-care article I found that shares more of a mental health point of view. Just click the button below to check it out!

 

Steps for your self-care cleanse:

Try 5-10 methods for 7 days in a row!

1. Cancel your social media. Avoid using Instagram, Facebook, Youtube or other social media platforms. This includes online games and phone games and apps too. Why? Because the social media and games are connected to screens which have blue-light which can alter your ability to sleep. The social media and online or phone-based games are also designed to keep you engaged for extended periods of time and can trigger higher stress levels.

2. Check email only 1-2x per day. Why? There is a dopamine kick (a chemical reaction in your brain) that your body receives after opening email or seeing social media posts and updates. This can drive repetitive behavior creating addictive behavior patterns. 

3. Meditate Daily: Aim for 5-10 minutes minimum. Meditation is key to help keep your mind refreshed and alert.

4. Ready Daily: Fuel your mind with the new. Add a new audiobook or paperback to your reading session. 

5. Exercise Daily: Exercise for 20-30 minutes every day and remember walks count.

6. Foster Quality Time: Spend time with your family and friends. Call instead of texting. Create a connection.

7. Eat Clean: Eat healthily and you will feel healthy. Find healthy treats to replace junk food cravings, then you don't have to miss out or feel that sluggish post junk food feeling.

8. Hydrate Daily: Drink 8-10 glasses of water per day. The medical recommendation for daily hydration is half your body weight in ounces per day. Add 8-16 ounces if you drink caffeine.

9. Journal Daily: Clear your mind by putting your thoughts and goals on paper. You will notice improved emotional health from journaling when your feeling sad or upset because as you think and write down your thoughts, you get to process your emotions at the same time!

10. Wear Clothes that make you happy: Dress like your here to inspire yourself. When we dress down we might feel less visible. Feeling invisible can be a bummer. Wear the clothes that make you feel confident and beautiful.

3 Wellness + Health Goal Phases - Which Phase Are You In Currently? How to Level Up - Free Goal Phases Guide Download

goal set phase.jpg

Hi, Queen Wellnista! I hope you are doing great and feeling inspired and magical.

A quick question for you: Do you have a health or wellness goal?

Are you curious to know:

-How to move from the beginner phase to the advanced level of goal development?

-How to get more goal inspiration?

-What markers and milestones show health and wellness goal mastery?

Understanding these questions is super important because, if you can determine which phase your wellness goal is currently stationed, you can also start to build a path forward to the next phase. 

Wait, there's more! This guide also helps you to identify when you're graduating from each phase of your goal development and moving into the next phase.

Are you ready to see it? Awesome! 

In my work as a Wellness Coach, I've noticed a theme of 3 main phases and behavior groups attached to wellness and health goals relating to emotional balance, weight loss, depression, and anxiety management. The three phases are categorized as beginner, intermediate, and advanced goal development. Each phase has a set of likely behaviors that happen or can happen in each phase.

Watch the video for more information:

 

Also, it's important to say:

The goal phases may have overlapping behaviors between the adjacent phases (beginner to intermediate or intermediate to advanced) and that's okay.

You can and should use your internal wisdom to determine what is best and appropriate for moving forward to reach your health and wellness goals.

You determine when you are READY to reach any goal, feeling pressured, coerced or forced will not create any enjoyment or long term goal progress.

This guide was created to be a help and support for wellness and health goal progress. 

One more thing!

If you find yourself having a hard time reaching your health and wellness goal, it may be time to dig deeper and ask yourself what benefits may be connected to you NOT moving forward with your health or wellness goal. What makes you comfortable to stay in the goal phase you're currently at?

For the Win!

I hope you enjoyed this article! Sound off in the comments below, what phase is your goal development currently for your health and wellness goal?
