Winter Weekend Detox - Mind, Body, and Soul

In this season of new year resolutions, severe diets and month long fitness challenges, the idea that ‘done is better than perfect’ can ring more true than ever. Committing to a month long or year long healthy change can be amazing and transformative. It can also backfire and make you feel worse than ever if you don’t actually complete the challenge.

Looking for a healthy boost you know you can follow through on? A weekend detox might be just what the doctor ordered. And who says you can’t choose one each weekend and create a monthly or yearly plan of your own? One weekend at a time.

We’ve gathered some of the best resources on the internet so that you can customize your weekend detox based on what appeals to you.


There is a lot to choose from among weekend detox meal plans. Want to try eating vegan? Paleo? Soup cleanse? There’s something for everyone. Here are a few links to help you get started. Look for a plan that challenges you to cook more and eat healthier, but isn’t so intimidating that you are unlikely to follow through.

Exercising our bodies during a detox is helpful for multiple reasons. First, it helps to circulate and eliminate the toxins and minimizes common cleansing side effects like headaches and low spirits. Second, we are less likely to feel deprived of our normal comfort foods while engaged in activity. Finally, fresh air and deep breathing help clear more toxins through our respiratory system.

Aim to increase your activity level during your weekend cleanse but also be reasonable in your expectations. If you are normally sedentary, committing to an outdoor walk each day might be enough.
