The new year is only hours away! With the New Year comes another set of resolutions, new goals and high intentions for making the upcoming 365 days the best yet. As important as resolutions are, having the right mindset and outlook on things is just as necessary for having a great year. This year instead of creating a list of all the things you want to change, how about relaxing and finding peace within yourself?
One of the things you can do to prepare for the new year is to take a hardcore detox bath. Soaking in the right materials can help your body get rid of stuff it doesn’t want, it’s another way to draw that stuff out, like sweating. Maybe there aren’t so many physical toxins you want to clean out before the new year, but you want some kind of scheduled deep cleaning of your life and an opportunity to goal set for the next bit to come. That’s healthy. This is a good way to do that!
This particular recipe is a doozy — make sure you bring a lot of water with you because when you stand up afterwards, you’ll feel very dehydrated!
Fill a bath with really hot water and add:
2 cups epsom salt
1 cup baking soda
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
15 drops eucalyptus essential oil
Soak for at least 20 minutes and then rinse off.
Spend special time afterwards caring for you body. Put fancy lotion on, change into nice pajamas, whatever you need to do to send the message to yourself that you have cleaned out the unnecessary junk and you are moving into a new phase (2015) of self-care and enjoyment!
P.S. I definitely reccomend reading Warrior of the Light as another way to get inspired in 2015! The book is full of short passages that invite you to live out your dreams, to embrace the uncertainty of life, and to rise to your own unique destiny.
