I started early - yep the juicer is out again! For those locally you can't beat Mount Edward Grocery or Brookfield Farms for inexpensive beets, carrots etc for your juicing. While I don't do the juice fast, I find adding a breakfast juice of one apple, 1 large beet and two carrots a great start to the day. Beets are sooo good for your health - vitamins, trace minerals and your liver will love you. Don't worry if you see a little red in your urine or stool that is perfectly normal. More on Beets and on juicing.
So I am now starting my day with a apple/beet/carrot juice and a raw cereal breakfast (Mine has walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds and dates with coconut milk over the top.) Here is a breakfast one for you though.
De-cluttering is harder for some than others, fortunately I've been a mininalist most of my life. I have found though that de-cluttering is more than material things it is also the clutter you let into your life. I have often referred to this as being pecked to death by ducks. It is all the little things adding up to clutter your mind. So your first step is to ask yourself if you need x? in your life? I now volunteer for a project rather than a two year term on a board. Or is there something in your life where you find is tiring....always moving x? to get to y?. Well start to streamline - what will make it easier and less of a stress? Well do that!
A philosophy I've always tried to follow is to have a place for everything and keep everything in it's place. This will also help you to declutter material things. If you notice that you have something that every year you look at and it is just sitting there then maybe you don't need that item anymore.
Wishing you great successs in making 2017 your best New Year yet.
