Detox (verb): Abstaining from unhealthy substances. Living confined.
Retox (verb): Adding in healthy substances. Living free.
Detox detox detox. How many times do you hear this word, re read it, maybe even use it… jumping on board out of some societal or self imposed guilt? We all have at least once, because for some reason detoxing is considered the way to greatness. The thing is, your body KNOWS how to cleanse itself. It was built precisely to do so. Yet, over and over again, we strap ourselves up, lock ourselves in, and strip ourselves down. Even though all we want is to be happy, healthy, and free…..
By its very nature detoxing implies a lack of freedom. Retox, on the other hand, is all about living.
Retox is about adding things in that will make you strong in body, mind and life. It is about harnessing all you and the world have to offer, and then adding a splash of simple, straight-up doable tips and solutions to make it all even better. It isn’t about depriving or regulating yourself or your lifestyle like detoxing mandates but instead about embracing it all and flourishing within it. Retox is about freedom and actual down and dirty true happiness.
When you retox you become the best you you can be, from the inside, out, and outside, in, all while living your real, actual life, no matter what life throws you. We have enough stress and demands on us as it is – why add more via some strict, dogmatic detox doctrine? Why not, instead, just live?
Retox is about accepting the chaos of the modern world around you and implementing the tools to not only manage it all, but thrive within it, becoming truly successful inside and out. It doesn’t require you to spend hundreds of dollars on juice, wake up at 4 am to meditate, quit your job, or ignore your family and social life. Retoxing takes that all into account, because that is life, and just gives you the skills and secrets to keep it all together and kick ass within that context. As I say in my book, RETOX, “Retox does not change your world; it makes you better within it.”
Retox uses yoga, nourishment, mindset and music, or if you prefer, breath, movement, food, thought, and sound. SO simple, so easy, and so free. 30 seconds of yoga at your desk here, one minute of a Retox Shot of meditation there, a food you can pick up at any deli, restaurant or cafeteria, and well, my friends, you are retoxing. Retox is a solution that is timeless, efficient, and functional. A solution based on science, anatomy, psychology, philosophy, biochemistry, and the life we really lead.
Retox is a transformation, a rethinking, reforming, reinventing, reconstructing of who you are and how you can truly be, inside and out. It is about detoxing the past methods that have not worked or that are too demanding to every be considering permanently realistic, and then adding in new ways to be the best you you can be smack dab in the middle of the life you really lead. It goes to the essence of what living is about – it is living itself.
We all want to be happy, healthy, strong, successful, and free. We all want a family, love life, killer career, and awesome bod. Yet this detox rage has lead us to think that we can only have these things by investing a ton of time, emotional energy, and money to get there. Which, lets be honest, few of us have an excess of. With retox you don’t have to do that. All you have to do is BE YOU, live your life, and add in these simple tools.
Detox is over my friends. It’s time now for the RETOX revolution. Rest to rage. Mediate to work. Breathe to energize. Eat to flourish. Sweat to focus. Sleep to party. RETOX TO LIVE.
I want to be free. I want to be happy. I want to be strong. I want to be successful.
I want to be me. Don’t you?
Detox yourself from the detoxing. Start retoxing. Start living.
