If you live in Kansas City or are a KC sports fanatic, you know that October was a difficult month to focus on much else other than baseball (and maybe football, but mostly baseball). Playoff baseball was played on 16 of 31 days of the month. I can't think of many people who were at home watching, eating carrots and drinking coconut water watching the Royals tear through each series. If you were one of the victims of having a phenomenal baseball team to watch all month long, you probably need a detox.
I started mine the day after Game 7 of the World Series. It seemed like, for me, October was an endless cycle of early morning coffee consumption, unfocused work, baseball beers, and very little sleep. As exciting as it was to check off a life-bucket list item, I was very tired on October 29th. Fifteen days into my coffee/alcohol-free detox, my mental clarity has returned, as well as other healthy habits (daily workouts, healthier eating and sleeping routine, hydration, etc.).
Consider some of the pitfalls of your daily habits. Sugar? Artificial sweeteners? Fried foods? Fast food? Challenge yourself to give up an unhealthy habit for 30 days. You will find yourself to be more productive, more focused, and feeling a new level of physical well-being. Ready… go!
