Ease yourself into the weekend by changing into a cozy bathrobe, have a light supper, and turn your bathroom into a luxurious sanctuary.
Before bed, make yourself a cup of herbal tea, put on some relaxing music, light a few candles and soak in a hot tub (with a few drops of essential oil).
Laze in bed then head for the kitchen for a glass of hot water and lemon juice (this will flush out your liver). Follow this with a hot shower or bath and end it with a blast of cold water to increase vitality. Put on your bathrobe and eat breakfast.
During the morning write in your journal and practice deep breathing exercises. Before lunch, relax by reading, then meditate. This will reduce stress levels and promote a deep level of calmness.
In the afternoon, take a long walk – anywhere you can appreciate nature. After your walk, give yourself a foot massage to help speed up the breakdown of toxins followed by a deep-cleaning facial.
Wind down for the evening with a light supper followed by reading, writing or listening to music. End the evening with a hand massage, then go to bed.
Start the day with a glass of hot water and lemon. Follow this with a moderate workout: brisk walk or put on some music and dance! Then it’s time for your home spa to speed up the detox process. Run a hot bath and apply an exfoliating scrub.
After lunch, spend your afternoon painting or drawing. Artistic activities can be deeply relaxing.
As you near the end of the weekend detox, you are likely to find that your thoughts are clearer. This is a good time to write in a journal. Follow this with a light supper and then relax with a good book or movie.
