Twice a year — in January and September — I embark on a 21-day reset to optimum physical wellness, mental clarity, and wholeness of being. This three week program, that I’ve personally developed through the years, puts me back in fit form, embraces mindfulness, and brings alignment, ease, and harmony to my inner and outer world. These resets are so powerful that often the practices I incorporate become more than a temporary undertaking and end up continuing as a part of my lifestyle. Such was the case in 2015 when I decided to remove caffeine from my daily routine during a reset. I’ve been off it ever since. The beauty of a health and wellness reset, unlike a New Year’s resolution, is that there is no overwhelming obligation to make the practices permanent. Therefore the mind has less resistance to them. When the mind views something as temporary the threshold for tolerance is much higher. So with little resistance you are able to handle, and dare I say, enjoy, the variety and novelty of a reset.
Here’s a sneak peek at my reset for this January:
This year I am working on cultivating the art of attention, where attention eclipses thought. Attention is about the now. Thought is about the past or the future. Attention is about experiencing the reality in front of you, unattached, with a neutral lens. Thought is about judging, classifying, or identifying with the reality your mind creates. My intention for these 21 days is to keep close guard of my attention so that my thoughts don’t take me for a ride. This includes focusing only on what is essential and not getting caught up in what ifs, buts, hows, etc..
This year my body reset plan includes:
As part of my reset, I’ll commit to the following spiritual practices for 21 days:
Wishing you the healthiest and happiest 2023!
