Want to Feel Refreshed? Juice Cleanse for One Day

Juices.jpg

In our super busy society, we are in the pursuit of having it all. As we work hard to achieve our goals, we don’t allow our bodies and psyche time to decompress and relax. In the past, I worked 7 days a week and pretty much forgot what it was like to have a weekend to myself. Have you been there or experiencing this now?

You might have the weekend off from work, but things like chores and running children around to all their activities can occupy all your time. In times like these, a vacation is a blessing and a change of routine is welcome. A day spent reading under a tree, smelling the flowers near a river or a walk in the woods can make all the difference.

Why it all matters to your overall wellness.

Have you ever thought about the foods and drinks you consume? What’s it made from, with and by whom? Many eat whatever comes their way. Because of the struggle to have time to cook at home, you may find yourself eating processed food or fast food most of the time.

Do you know that diet (what you eat on a daily basis) affects our behavior and mood? Dietary changes bring changes in our brains, which lead to change in attitude, hormones, and ability.

For many, our busy schedules don’t allow us to be as careful as we would like to be regarding what we put into our bodies on a daily basis. Most of us just don't have time to cook at home every day. In such situations, the tested and proven one-day juice cleanse is just the answer.

How does a juice cleanse work?

To lose weight, stay healthy, feel fresh, give your digestive system a break from hard-to-digest processed foods and maintain focus, you should try to go on a juice cleanse once a week. It is a rejuvenating experience. It will boost your metabolism due to the sudden change in diet and your digestive organs will thank you for a day off.

Which juices to drink?

Remember, the key is balance. Try to drink juices that leave you without an appetite. You should drink six juices a day to receive proper hydration. Play around with the four juice recipes I provide below to find out a combination that works for you and is appetizing. Make sure not to add any sugar or artificial flavors.

Remember this.

The most important factor is to not juice in a way that leaves you feeling faint, weak or so hungry that you are waking up for a midnight snack. If you do feel faint or weak you can supplement with a smoothie. If that doesn’t work do whatever you have to do to feel better (eat a piece of fruit). Juice cleanses are never about feeling deprived, they’re about being cleansed and feeling alive.

This doable and easy to follow a juice cleanse will help you succeed in making changes for one day. And when you have the discipline and the desire to implement this change, I promise many more will follow because you will feel so great. My hope is this juice cleanse will be an action you take that will propel you into other lifestyle changes creating massive change in what you put in your body and allow in your life.

Below are my 4 favorite juice recipes. I hope you enjoy them.
