Sober October - Day 3 - Hell Day
So you’ve made it to day three of #SoberOctober. In my experience 72 hours is when shit gets real and your body starts really feeling the detox. Are you waking up drenched in sweat? Perfectly normal. Massive headache? Foggy brain? Normal. Are you exhausted? Let yourself rest. Detox can be exhausting and it’s okay if you need an extra nap or a bit more sleep than usual. Your body is healing. Let it.
Make sure you’re nourishing it with good, clean foods and not McDonald’s. You should do this anyway, but it’s very important when you’re detoxing.
I concocted a Detox Witches Brew to help support the process a little bit. You can play fast and loose with the recipe. It depends on how sour, sweet and spicy you like things, but I gave you the general structure.
Detox Witches Brew
6-8 cups of water
Juice of 1-2 lemons
Half a fresh ginger, grated
Dash of cayenne
Combine the water, lemons and ginger and bring to a boil.
Reduce to simmer.
Strain the brew (or don’t, I love ginger so I leave mine chunky)
Add honey and cayenne to your liking.
This is also great if you feel like you’re getting a cold.
Make sure you’re drinking a shit ton of water. Day 3 is a great day to reach out to the group for support and accolades. Use us. We are cheering you on from the sidelines.
If you’re partaking in #SoberOctober, how are you doing today?
