Detox the Old and Step into Your Best Self

Posted by on October 2nd, 2012 with 0 Comments


This past weekend, I had the honor of being a participant and a co-facilitator at a women’s Fall Retreat in Berkley Springs, West Virginia hosted by a good friend of mine Yaa Gyasi Peppy Parke (Rosie Parke), who is a fitness and wellness enthusiast, founder and creative director of Peppy Entertainment & Promotions, LLC; the creator, producer and host of the new and exciting talk show, PEP Talk!  

This retreat was exactly what they doctor ordered.  It helped me end September on a high note while welcoming October with everything amazing it had in stored for me!  My presentation at the retreat focused on detoxification, letting go, releasing the old so the new you can emerge powerfully. October is such a great month to do just that, let go and live, detox and remove all the “stuff” that is blocking you from living YOUR best life, to step out of your own way and trust that the best is yet to come! 

If you’ve always wanted to make some changes about yourself, your body and your life but were too afraid to do so, now is the time to take action.   Step into October with a new attitude, new mindset and new outlook on life!  This is your time to re-invented yourself and become the YOU, you know you have always wanted to become!

Listed below are tips to help you step into the new you:

1.      What’s on your fantasy list of changes you want to make? Let your thoughts and ideas flow and jot them down. What would you change about yourself if you had the power?


2.      Focus on the top 3 things you wish to change. For the best success, direct your energy to no more than a few things at a time. Circle the top 3 things you want to work on.

  • Here is an example, maybe you want to change your hair color and style, loss 15 pounds, and wear a more classic style of clothing. 
  • Maybe you want to work out to build muscle, discover a new relationship, and develop a deeper interest in your career.


3.   Think about the reasons you wish to make these changes. Dig deep within yourself to consider why making these changes are important to you. Do you think you are not worthy enough and don’t feel very positive about yourself? Do you believe you can move closer toward the type of life you want if you make the changes you desire?

  • Maybe you think you’ll be happier or more successful when you take steps to become the person you want to be. This is such a powerful exercise because by giving some thought to the reasons you want to change these aspects of yourself will help you recognize where you want to be heading in life.


4.      Design a brief plan for each area you want to alter. Using some of the examples in #2, getting a different hair color and cut is as simple as setting an appointment and going to the hairdresser. Losing the weight will take a bit more thought and effort. What will you do to get started on your plan now?

  • You might cut out sodas and fattening desserts and have breakfasts of yogurt and fruit or 1 scrambled egg with 1 toast.

  • Doing a wardrobe overhaul costs money. Plan to obtain clothing you want little by little. Consult fashion websites to learn about styles and basic wardrobe pieces.


5.      Take “before” pictures. Photos will motivate you to continue your efforts.


6.      Explore how you feel about beginning to work toward the changes. Do you feel positive, confident, and pleased that you’re finally going to “do something?” You might be experiencing doubt or hesitancy to get started. What makes you feel that way? This step is integral to your capacity to continue your path of self-re-invention.

  • Connect with your feelings to be successful in creating a new you. If you have serious doubts or even fears about taking steps toward what you want to be in life, consider consulting a life coach or counselor to help you move forward in your quest.


7.      Put your plans into action. If all systems are “go,” move forward without delay.


8.      Notice the subtle changes that you achieve along the way. Develop ways to reinforce your efforts to successfully alter the aspects you wish to change. Take a few pictures of yourself as you notice changes and display them where you can view them for motivation. After all, you’re doing what you set out to do—re-inventing yourself!

  • Creating a new and improved you can be a very exciting time in your life. Embrace this phase of life with all you’ve got. After all, you’re worth it.


To your best health,
