Walkin’ My Talk

I’m doing an autumn detox. Those of you who’ve worked with me or read about my detox style know that I like to do things gently – no harsh deprivations or starvations. So I am going about this in a slow and steady manner.
Yesterday I took out coffee. I was a little worried about going without my beloved bean juice, and that worry/ attachment is a big motivator for scheduling a cleanse – I don’t want to be an addict!! Happily, I don’t have a headache.
But I. am. tired.
A friend suggested I have some tea, and so in the interest of easing gently into it, I rummaged around the house and came up with some pomegranate green tea (tasty!). It didn’t help. Finally I succumbed to a nap. Was supposed to be 20 minutes. Turned into 2 hours, in spite of lawn mower and barking dog next door.
The moral of the story? Get. more. sleep.
I’ve been using coffee to prop me up – a false form of energy, when what I really need is to get a decent night’s sleep on a regular basis. Ahhhhhh, back to basics!
Do you have any good lessons to share from coffee or other seductive foodstuffs?
And – are you interested in a cleanse or detox? My e-book is coming soon… xoxo
