There are some things in life that you know you will regret if you don’t do it now. You may laugh at this but maybe you’ll nod in recognition too. 

Lately, we’re been making a heavy metal detox smoothie from the Medical Medium (1) every morning. It’s delicious with bananas, blueberries, cilantro, spirulina, barley grass juice powder, Atlantic dulse flakes and orange juice. 

After drinking, both my husband and I know that it’s so important to rinse and wash the smoothie jug straight away. If we leave it on the side until later, we spend soooooo much longer cleaning and scrubbing it and we end up regretting not doing it straight away. It’s the same with the glasses. The good thing with this is that you only make this mistake once or twice and then you learn.

What else could this apply to? One of the biggest things but perhaps not the most obvious is your health. Look after it now or end up regretting it. That’s harsh to say I know, even writing this makes me think “Tough love Selina”. Ok, I’m not suggesting a complete overhaul, just one small thing at a time, go to the annual dentist or doctor checkup,  drink 2 litres of water a day, add a new vegetable to your plate, sign up for that weekly workout and whatever works for you because it will all add up for the better. Your future self will thank you.

So rinse now or scrub later.
