In addition to all the amazing nature experiences, meeting up with old friends, and just “charging my batteries”, my visit to Lapland was also to initiate a detoxification process which included a caffeine-free, low-carbohydrate diet and teetotalism.  Along with getting plenty of fresh air and exercising through daily hikes, staying away from sugar was surprisingly easy. I’m a firm believer in that there is an underestimated advantage of changing environments when doing a detox. Eliminating temptation is key. At least for me. And after yet another summer of indulgence, I needed detoxification.
