Cleanse With a Friendon May 01, 2017
Cleansing can be a daunting task, especially if you’ve never attempted one before. So we have a great suggestion to help get you in gear: don’t cleanse alone, we’ve heard it’s the loneliest number anyway. The benefits of cleansing with someone else aren’t just motivational, for a limited time, they are also fiscal. When you buy one cleanse, we'll give you the second 20% off– insider tip, you should split the cost.
Here are a couple of tips and tricks to help keep one another motivated to finish the cleanse.
First let’s set the stage, how many days do we want to cleanse for? Let’s say you’re doing the big 3-day cleanse, because that one will require the most motivation, you’ll be batting away dancing tacos and ice cream cones in your dreams.
*Before you starting cleansing make sure to check out or guidelines on our ‘Cleanses’ page, so you’ll what to do before, during and after your cleanse.
This one might seem obvious, but a lot of buddy systems forget to set the groundwork for one another and that is a recipe for failure. You’ll want to start by hyping yourselves up, getting excited for the cleanse and how good you’re going to feel afterwards. Make sure to mention all of the benefits you’ll have after you’ve finished, your new glowy skin, shiny hair and just that overall clean feeling.
Be in touch.
Obviously you can’t be with one another 24/7, so it’s important to make sure that you two keep in touch while you’re cleansing. Do a little check-in at meal times and ask how it’s going and make sure to tell them that they’re doing awesome– really just praise-guilt them into not cheating.
You’re going to need to keep both of your minds off of that little rumbly sound that will be coming from your tummy. We suggest some yoga or meditation because you may not have the full capacity of energy to be able to do your normal workout routine. This can be a nice substitute and we’ll probably keep your mind off of food for a little while at least. Or maybe try a group activity like a painting class.
The important thing here is to remember all of the benefits you’ll be getting in the end of this little 3-day venture and, trust us, it will definitely be worth it in the end.
