Good morning everyone, One support tool for you to try during this detox is called "Breath Awareness". The breath and our mind are very tied together, so the more consciously we breathe, the quieter is the mind. Breath Awareness is easy to do, and can be done sitting in an easy crossed-leg position on the floor, or in a chair with both feet flat on the floor. Keep the spine straight, but relax your muscles. Close your eyes, and breath long, slowly, and deeply. Be aware of the four parts of your breath: the inhale; a short hold when your lungs are full; the exhale; and a short hold when your lungs are empty. Do this for three minutes at least once each day. This is a good tool to use before you eat, and when you feel hungry and want to eat. Let us know what your experience is with this.
