How to: 7 Day Self Care Cleanse for Wellness Recovery

7day2.jpg

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. 

Let me know if you give this 7-Day Self Care Cleanse a try! Watch the 2 part video series below to find out how I felt before and after completing the 7 Day self-care Cleanse also known as 7DSCC.

How to Start A Health & Wellness Journey: Create a Weekly Health & Wellness Routine, and FREE Incentive Map Worksheet

welljournc (1).jpg

Hi, Queen Wellnista!

I wanted to share my top 5 tips to begin or refresh your health and wellness journey. We all have goals and different things we want to work on or improve in our lives. Why not make our attempts and efforts as impactful as possible no?

I have been on different and reoccurring health and wellness journies and I've picked up some great lessons to share to save your time and energy for reaching your goals. Working smart instead of working harder is a real thing.

5 Tips For Starting A Health + Wellness Journey

1. Identify your goal: make sure it's a goal that YOU are choosing for yourself. If it's not a goal that's coming from your own heart, you are not as likely to keep the motivation requirements to reach the goal successfully.

2. Identify "WHY" you want to work on the goal: Get clear on why you choose the goal, what does it really mean to you to master the goal? How will you feel? How will your life be improved by the goal?  This step is what determines your motivation level to achieve the goal versus wishing to achieve the goal.

3. Identify the first step for your goal: decide what you must do in order to take a small step toward your goal. What is one small action you can take daily or several times weekly toward the success of your goal? Building a routine is about building practice and with practice being mastered you are creating a habit, then when the habit is mastered, your actions can become a lifestyle.

4. Practice + Refine Your Strategy: Get into the action of practice. It's completely okay to make mistakes but the idea of practice is that you continue to learn from those mistakes in order to keep your overall momentum towards the big goal. Remind yourself of your "why" when you feel nervous, anxious, scared, or frustrated and keep going.

5. Create an Incentive Map: goal tracking is essential, track your progress on a weekly basis to keep your mind and your actions connected to working on your goal. Being that we are human, it is helpful to also create an incentive or reward for reaching the small milestones of your goal. I have a simple, effective, and FREE incentive mapping worksheet below that you can use for any goal that excites you. Just click the button below!
