In the Fasting Lane
Rains come, flowers bloom, birds fly north and the bees get back to their busy, buzzing business. As the seasons change and the sun goes on the ascent, you begin to change your own habits, acclimating to the new weather and the new possibilities. This year, as you hang that winter coat back up and pull out your shorts and tank tops, consider the changes going on in your inner climate as well.
Winter is the time for hibernation, a time when the body slows its processes and stores extra energy as the temperatures drop. When the temps begin to rise again, the body has to get rid of the extra stores to become more efficient for the hot summer months. The best way to help this process along is to cleanse or fast. There are numerous healthy ways of cleansing, but what is certain is that once completed, you’ll be in rhythm with your body and will be better suited to make the most of your food, energy, and your whole summer!
