Honey & Tea Cleanse: A Review

If you know me, you know I am obsessed with tea – so naturally when I learned about Honey & Tea’s fabulous tea cleanse, I was intrigued!  I wanted to share something that I have experienced and been a part of recently – in an effort to try new health and wellness ideas.

Learning more about tea and it’s natural energetic and detoxing properties through owner Natalie of Honey & Tea, was an eye opener to say the least.  When being described the amazing results of this cleanse and how I could feel better was a no-brainer and I was excited to sign up!

“The Honey & Tea Cleanse is a 3-week program, providing direction for a 3-phase lifestyle change.  Part of any successful lifestyle change includes attainable, measurable goals.  Honey & Tea’s Cleanse will provide just that through specific direction for manageable adjustments to transform your life in the areas of nutrition, fitness and motivation.” – Honey & Tea

Their goal is to transform our community!  Sometimes I can’t believe that this amazing company is so close to home for me.

When starting the cleanse, I was feeling tired with a lack of energy and motivation – but by the end of the three weeks, I was feeling so alert and ready to kickstart the fall season!

I had a lot of fun on this journey, and tasting new teas that would boost my energy, get my body feeling better and providing natural ways to be alert throughout the day. Wellness is a big part of my life and having found a solution to every-day energy is so exciting.

Being part of the cleanse means that you are also part of an exclusive cleanse community!  Through that community, I had access to the Cleanse Coaches, who were jam-packed full of knowledge right at my fingertips. They were there for guidance, motivation, accountability and delicious healthy recipes!

 

“The Tea Cleanse Program has been designed by a Fitness Trainer & Kinesiologist, with consultation from a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and a Naturopathic Doctor.  Our Cleanse Coaches change with each facilitated intake, many cleanse participants join several intakes to learn from different health practitioners and advance their own wellness and nutrition goals. “ – Honey & Tea

What I learned most about this cleanse is that it’s attainable and doesn’t have to be complicated. Healthy eating, drinking and moving (which I call part of wellness), is ready to be accessed at a moment’s notice and starts with the decision to make a change.  I generally feel as though I am a healthy person, but I needed a boost to get back on track – and that’s exactly what this cleanse helped me with!  Try it out!!! You will love it!!  Click here to know more : )

LOVE LIFE

Appreciation for life, love and relationships is what motivates me every single day. I couldn’t breathe without having these three important aspects in my life, and what makes me so in-tune with them is by showing gratitude.

It’s easy for a day, a week, a month to go by and you’re left thinking: what did I even do this past month? Did it even happen?

I’m guilty of letting life pass me by, which is why this last year I made the conscious effort to stop and show gratitude for every single moment that makes me happy. From a beautifully presented dinner, to the birds singing in the morning or even a walk through the neighbourhood feeling the breeze in my hair. Every moment that I can, I show gratitude and acknowledge that “this is a wonderful moment”.

Recently I invited my good friend Hilary, some would say creative soulmate (by “some” I mean “we”), over to my home for tea and a chat on a gorgeous Sunday morning. I consciously wanted to connect with her and create a moment that her and I could enjoy. I appreciate moments when they are prepared with love and I like to create that for others in return. I’m not saying that this is what will fuel everyone, but it is what fuels me.

So on that Sunday morning, we met to take a breather from life and savour the moment that we were creating. Will you take a moment and enjoy life in it’s simplest form?

Thank you to the always captivating Hilary Spencer for the beautiful moment that will now always be remembered, with your wonderful photography.
