How do I prepare myself for fasting at home?

Tips for a good start into fasting

• Abstain from stimulants, such as alcohol and coffee for example

• Take 1-2 pre-cleansing days eating easy to digest food, such as potatoes, whole grain Basmati rice, millet, vegetables, salad and fruit

• Abstain from meat and processed meats

• Ensure ample fluid intake with water or herbal tea

• Take advantage of this time to prepare yourself for a fastening experience for body, mind and soul and plan enough time for a stress-free arrival
