What aspect are you enjoying the most about the Re-Boot? Over the past ten days I have enjoyed many things, including: making myself more of a priority, eating a hearty breakfast, taking the time to think about what I’m putting in my mouth, having food boundaries, getting at least seven hours of sleep each night, hydrating, trying new recipes and most importantly, feeling great! Oh, and in the spirit of self-care, I thoroughly enjoyed my facial and massage last Friday at Mecca and I got short haircut too. For sure my hair needed a re-boot!
What aspect are you finding the most difficult: Skin brushing and taking an Epsom salt bath. I failed at making the skin brushing a priority and aside from one Epsom Salt bath, I never carved out the time, which is so sad!
Quality of sleep: Aside from randomly waking up every night around 2:30 a.m., my sleep has been great and I feel very well rested when I wake up.
Energy level and mood during the day: Excellent! Prior to the Re-Boot I was experiencing more stress than normal, was was emotional than normal and feeling blue, but since the Re-Boot I’ve not experience the stress that I was experiencing and I am uplifted and cheery, like my normal self.
Are you having any specific cravings: Really, I haven’t, which is shocking. Initially I craved my after-dinner chocolate, but that has subsided.
Other observations related to this experience: Slowing down, getting good sleep, proper hydration and eating high-quality foods is vitally important and can take care of so many “issues”. And, not snacking on my kids snacks makes a big difference.
Tips or tricks that are working for you: Planning, going to the grocery store and having prepared foods throughout the week was the game changer for me. And, not having any caffeine in the house!
