Happy Holidays and 1-Day Body Reset
We are into full holiday mode now. Try getting into a store these days and you’ll be waiting quite some time in line.
How many parties have you been to so far? How much wine and sugar have you consumed? If you’ve been feeling bloated and stuffed and need a day to give your body a break, keep reading. It’s not always easy to give your body a rest when you are busy running around getting ready for the holidays but it is doable. I’ve put together a super easy Epic 24 Hour Body Reset you can easily implement to get back on track.
I don’t believe in deprivation, so you won’t feel deprived in any way. In fact, you’ll feel quite the opposite. Ready to give your body a break so you can get back on track and enjoy the holidays?
