Around the spring equinox, which falls on March 20 or 21, the energies of the season are most activated, and this is an ideal time to cleanse, not only the internal environment of our bodies, but also our external environment. It's a time to clear out clutter, mentally, emotionally and physically.

Begin by taking stock of you life—look in the mirror and look around you to identify areas where you might be stuck or out of balance and design a program that will set you out on a healthy path.

Our personal environment, I believe, is a reflection of our state of mind. Is there clutter in your environment? Are things in disarray? Perhaps you need to look no further than inside your own mind. Are you harboring negative thoughts, such as anger or confusion? Do you have fear of moving forward in your life? When we change our minds, there seems to be a ripple effect that is reflected in our environment and other areas of our lives. It can work both ways—by clearing out clutter in our environments, we can gain more mental and emotional clarity and freedom.

Now, I'm not big on radical dieting or long-term fasting. Rather, I believe in integrating healthy diet and lifestyle practices that you can sustain and that will ensure continued good health. That's why I'd like to offer some guidelines to support you in optimizing the energies activated at this time of year and to put a spring in your step!
