Welcome back everyone to part 2 of the spring cleanse. In the previous blog, we have introduced you to spring cleanse. In this blog let's see in detail how you can plan your day for spring cleanse. 


5:00 AM – Rise and shine! Brush and attend to all your natural urges. 

5:30 AM – Do your Nasya Therapy as nasal drops with Anu Tailam are very beneficial in this season as most of the infections are due to Kapha dosha. 

5:45 AM – Oil pulling (Gandusha). Use a tablespoon or 2 of sesame oil or coconut oil and swish it around your mouth for 10-15 minutes. Use lukewarm water afterward to remove any oiliness. 

6:00 AM – Do some simple yoga exercises (Suryanamaskar/Salute to the Sun, Butterfly Pose, Gomukhasana/Cow Face Pose, Dhanurasana/Bow Pose, Mayurasana/Peacock Pose, Tadasana/Tree Pose) along with some breathing exercises (Anuloma Viloma/Alternate Nostril Breathing, Kapalbhati/Skull Shining Breathing, Shitali/Cooling Breath ) and 5-10 minutes of meditation

6:30 AM – Spend a few minutes doing Abhyanga (Self-Massage. Massage your body with warm oils like Kapha (for spring) or any of Vata, Pitta, Kapha, Tridosha based on your dosha.

6:45 AM – Snana (Bathing) 

7:00 AM – Have a warm cup of tea with spices like fennel seeds, coriander seeds, and turmeric instead of caffeine products. 

8:00 AM – Enjoy a nourishing breakfast that supports your body's natural detoxification process. Opt for a warm bowl of oatmeal topped with seasonal fruits, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.


12:30 PM – Lunch 

In Ayurveda, it is said that our digestive fire's power fluctuates in accordance with the position of the sun. That means your digestive fire is the highest during the afternoon. But if you feel that your hunger has decreased then include 1gm of Trikatu Churna with warm water after meals. As you are cleansing your body, have light warm meals like khichadi. Enjoy a light, nourishing lunch composed of seasonal vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. 

Choose foods that are easy to digest and provide sustained energy throughout the afternoon. 

Stay hydrated throughout the day by drinking water, herbal teas, and refreshing beverages like coconut water or cucumber-infused water. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of fluids to support detoxification and promote hydration. 


7:00 pm - Enjoy a nourishing dinner featuring light, easily digestible foods such as soups, stews, or steamed vegetables. Incorporate warming spices like turmeric, cumin, and coriander to aid digestion and promote balance. 

9:00 pm - Wind down your day with calming evening rituals that promote relaxation and prepare you for restful sleep. 

  • Dim the lights, diffuse calming essential oils like lavender or chamomile, and create a tranquil atmosphere in your home. 
  • Disconnect from electronic devices at least an hour before bedtime to reduce exposure to blue light and promote restful sleep. 
  • Instead, engage in relaxing activities such as reading, journaling, or practicing gentle yoga or meditation. 
  • Have 1-3 gms of Triphala Powder with warm water before sleeping to ensure proper detoxification of your body. 
  • Sleep in a dark room after all the above steps. 

As you continue on your spring cleanse journey, remember to listen to your body, honor its needs, and cultivate gratitude for the gift of vibrant health. 

Follow the above routine for at least a week for a proper detox. May you continue to radiate vitality and vitality in all aspects of your life.
