A few ideas to get you through your fast. Relax, take it easy on yourself. Remember that sometimes moving your body can actually help you feel better even though it may not be what you feel like doing. Schedule some fun appointments days or weeks before, so your schedule is set. Stick it out.....you can do anything for 3 days ;).
Ideas in no particular order:
1.) Allow for plenty of rest and rest when you are tired
2.) Fill your schedule to keep your mind busy - see lots of ideas below
3.) Drink lemon, cayenne, ginger, turmeric water or some version of these
4.) Drink Blue Majik or E3 Live. Get it here. Great and easily digestable vitamins and minerals
5.) Add collagen to your broth
6.) Get a good book - The Audible app is great!
7.) Schedule a massage or go to one of those affordable feet massage places
8.) Get your nails done
9.) Get your hair done
10.) Sit in an infrared sauna - I don't know if this is recommended, but it makes me feel good when I fast
11.) Listen to Podcasts
12.) Didn't have time to get your broth ready....we got you boo...t.Loft has bone broth by the glass. We can serve it up warm and ready for your belly.
13.) Take on a small cleaning or organizing project in your house
14.) Make a bullet journal
15.) Write in your journal
16.) Work on your planner
17.) Build a Pinterest board for a fun and exciting project
18.) Stay out of the kitchen - plan for other meals for your family so you are not in the kitchen
19.) Buy something new - new nail polish, new lip gloss, new lotion, new sox, new shirt, new workout bra, new tights. Can be something super small or something you've been wanting. You are earning it gurl or boy!

32.) Schedule an early evening game night (do not have snacks for game night ;))
33.) Clean out your kitchen days before your fast so there is nearly no food or definitely no tempting foods. When in doubt, throw it out. It's a good time to start fresh!
34.) Do not look at food blogs, food pinterest pages, or any social media revolving around food ;).
35.) Take a warm bath, light candles, soak in Epsom salt
