- Conscious Eating - which includes having spiritual integrity even with the food you eat - think about what, where and how the food is prepared and the ways it effects the environment and animals.
- Exercise - 30 minutes 3-6 times a week
- Spiritual Practice
- Self Work - educating yourself
- Fun Activities
Mind, Body, Soul - Kathy Freston's 21 Day Cleanse:
One of Oprah's favorite parts of Kathy's book was the description of the 21 day cleanse that she decided to start and blog about on Oprah.com. The cleanse, according to Kathy, is about progress, not perfection, and should be done twice a year. The cleanse includes eliminating a few things from your life for up to 21 days. These things are: caffeine, sugar, alcohol, gluten, and animal products. This still leaves many great options like beans, grains, nuts, fruits like apples and blueberries, vegetables and soy products.
