I know, when you hear about people doing a juice cleanse it’s usually a story of days and days of juicing. Many people talk about the trials and tribulations they went through during their 30 day juice cleanse. We’ve personally done quite a few of these longer juice cleanses ourselves, and while they do have their benefits, sometimes even thinking about attempting something so different and for such an extended period of time can feel overwhelming!
You might figure that doing a one day juice cleanse would be pointless? I mean, it’s one day right? What’s a day going to do? This might surprise you, but it can actually do quite a bit!
#1. You’ll Actually Just Do It, Rather Than Thinking About Doing It
That’s right! Seriously, this is real talk right here. Longer juice cleanses can yield some amazing results true. But how often are you really going to do a 30 day juice cleanse? I’ve done my share of them, but I don’t do them all of the time, and I write for a blog that’s all about juicing and juice cleansing! You know what I do find relatively easy to do?
A one day juice cleanse! 🙂
#2. You’ll Reset & Give Your Body A Quick Cleansing
You might think you wouldn’t get a whole lot of cleansing or detox done in one day, but you’ll get a lot more than you would if you didn’t do it! I’m not just saying that to make you feel better, it’s the truth.
It’s the same as with anything else. Sure, running a marathon is going to be great for your health, but taking an hour jog or a nice hike one day is also going to have some benefits. Over time doing a single day juice cleanse here and there can really add up! Besides, life and our health IS the real marathon, some days you go all out and some days you do the best you can.
#3. You’ll Make Up For A Lot Of The Nutrients You Missed During The Week
Have you fallen off your healthy eating habits a bit this week? Coming up short in the vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant department? Skipped over a fruit or vegetable snack too many times to count for something quick, processed, and generally devoid of real nutrition?
No need to over-worry or get yourself all stressed out. I’m saying this because I can be pretty good at beating myself up when I’ve been slipping. Unless you’re hiding a time machine away somewhere, the only real thing you ever can work on is right now.
I want to be clear that I’m not saying to eat like crap all week and then do a one day juice cleanse every week to make up for it. Hahaha… yea, I bet someone out there reading this was having this thought. What I’m saying is that if you already have, hey why not do something about that?
If you do a juice 1 day juice cleanse and be sure to drink plenty of juice that day, you’re going to be pouring a whole lot of nutrition into your body.
How much juice should you drink? Aim for a minimum of 1 gallon (128 ounces) of juice, and make a lot of it green juice. I’m telling you, your body will thank you!A 1 day juice cleanse is a quick easy way to reset & load up on nutrition! Click To Tweet
#4. It’s Easier On Your Budget
Don’t get me wrong. Doing a juice cleanse is well worth the money! Think about the possible medical bills you won’t be having to pay, and all of the time you’ll be taking back for yourself that you might of spent being sick or much worst!
With that being said the plain ole simple truth is that we can’t always afford to go all out and juice cleanse for a long period of time. I haven’t always been able to, and I imagine you’re the same. I’ll make a lot of sacrifices to make sure that my health is a priority, but when I’m really feeling the squeeze I don’t juice cleanse for long periods of time. If you don’t have the money, you don’t have the money!
The cool thing is that I can almost always afford to do just one day! Even if it takes me a couple of weeks of putting a bit back here and there to be able to do it.
When you juice cleanse for 1 day you don’t have to go all out and fill your fridge with massive amounts of vegetables and fruits. You just need to take care of one day. Depending on your location and produce prices, you should be able to do a one day juice cleanse for anywhere between $10-$25.
#5. Healthy Habits Are Built One Day At A Time
Have you ever heard the song “What a difference a day makes” by Dinah Washington? She isn’t lying, because changes are made one day at a time.
All of us want to get where we want to be right now, but if we approach our health with an attitude of everything or nothing it’s not going to get us very far.
I think about it like this. How long did it take me to get as overweight as I used to be? How long did it take me to get to a place where I was basically eating, drinking, and sometimes drugging myself constantly to deal with my emotions or my mind?
It took me a long time!
So, I accepted and still do accept that it’s going to take a day to day effort to get my health to where I want it to be. Life, and our health is a marathon, and once you realize your running a marathon rather than a sprint, you’ll also know how much of a difference each and every day can make. Just 24 little hours. 🙂
