There comes a time in our lives when we know, we feel, we sense something is amiss. If this is something you are feeling, then now is the time to act!
Our body is a complex and brilliantly designed system that works 24×7 for 365 days of the year from the time we are born until the time we stop breathing. Have you ever thought about this – your body is functioning with no break, not even for a millisecond? So, if you want your body to perform optimally it needs your support, especially in this age and time.
This is where wellness retreats come in, because, besides external factors which may cause you wellness issues, it seems that our food, the air we breathe, the exercise we get, how much we laugh or cry, and our feelings about the family, friends, and colleagues all have a direct bearing on Your Wellness. This interaction is played out at every level of our being and affects all our Physiological, Physical and Psychological systems.
As humans, we have evolved from being a single cell organism to becoming a dominant species on earth. And in that process our body has become incredibly complex and is constantly evolving as it adapts to the environment, supporting a million complex processes that are keeping us alive. One important part of the equation is the detoxification process which has several organs supporting it. So, if you want to know when to detox, it’s an inbuilt automated process that your body is designed to do every day.
Then why are we discussing detox retreats nowadays? Why do I have to take time out to detox? The Answer: our high-paced, chaotic lifestyles and the toxins we ingest through the air, water and soil is in excess. Our bodies can’t cope with the exposure. The Result: a toxic build-up resulting in an imbalance in the body.
When do I decide if the time is right to go on a detox retreat?
Described very simply, a detox retreat gives your body the support it needs to clear away toxins both physical and emotional. Giving you time to process hidden wastes stored away because of an overload. You are putting your body in an environment where the body’s very own detoxification processes are stimulated and accelerated to work the toxins out of your system.
Here are some signs that can signal the need for a detox: if you are
- going through a hectic work schedule and need a break from the stress.
- reaching out for junk food frequently
- finding it difficult to sleep at night.
- constantly feeling irritated, frustrated, tired, lethargic and have brain fog.
- feeling the need to slow down and your body needs rest.
- diagnosed with lifestyle disorders like diabetes, obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol etc.
- dealing with some negative experiences which you are unable to overcome, and which is hampering the immune system.
- trying to conceive
Listen to your body: it’s constantly giving you little hints, telling you something isn’t right. We can often ignore these signs until our body starts screaming out loud and we’re showing the symptoms. So, if you have answered yes, to any of the questions above then you may have missed the signs already.
In our day-to-day lives, our body is undergoing a lot of wear and tear both in the physical and emotional state due to our lifestyles, our environment, and our reaction to emotional to situations, primarily stress.
And, just like a car engine that needs to be serviced and have its oils removed and changed in order to enhance its performance, our body too needs detoxification in order for it to function properly and promote general health and wellbeing.
If you haven’t had any of the very obvious signs but feel out of balance, then it is always a good thing to consider doing a detox retreat to keep the systems oiled and greased before hearing the squeaks.
Tapping into your instincts and intuitions as well as listening to your body is important in deciding whether or not it’s the right time for you to book your detox retreat. Listen, observe, and pay attention to what your body tells you and you will get the answer.
