Spring is in the Air!
March 13, 2015
After such a cold, snowy winter, it is hard to believe that it actually feels like spring outside! My car read 52 degrees today and the warmth I felt on my treasured walk this morning confirmed my car’s reading. Even with all the snow on the ground, we now can confidently say “spring is on the way”.
While I am always eager for spring to arrive and say goodbye to the coldness of winter, there is a part of me that has a hard time opening to spring. Last year I remember being outside on one of the first warm days feeling like a bit of a vampire in the sun, wanting to go back inside and hide from the light. This year, I am being proactive, making sure I get outside more often before the weather really changes and lightening up my foods a bit, exercising more and in general-getting ready for the arrival of spring.
How about you? Are you ready for your own transition into the new season? Do you feel like you still have some winter in you that is holding on tight? Is there a part of you that wants to stay bundled up and cozy but knows that it’s time to open up the windows (well almost) and feel the freshness of spring- of life? Want to make the change but aren’t sure how to get yourself excited to do so? Let’s move forward together!
Join me in my 10 day online Spring Cleanse and Renewal program. Together we will let go of unwanted toxins and stagnation and open ourselves to the vibrancy and renewal that spring offers.
The Spring Cleanse will focus on the liver and the gallbladder as they are the organs associated with Spring in Traditional Chinese Medicine. For this reason, during the 10 days we will incorporate foods that decongest, nourish and protect our liver and gallbladder. We’ll also use some herbal teas and engage in lifestyle practices like body brushing to support our cleansing experience. The meals for the spring cleanse will be a little bit lighter than what we ate during the winter cleanse since we are moving into warmer weather.
The Cleanse Package includes:
- suggested list of foods to include and avoid
- meal plan (vegetarian and omnivore options)
- shopping list
- suggestions to get the most out of your cleanse
- daily online support from Lysa
- online community support via email and facebook and instagram
Fee for cleanse: $40 (if you sign up with 3 friends $30, save $10 each)
