Try these simple strategies to give the body a cleanse, invigorate and energize you for the new year ahead!
Summer is the perfect time to wake up and enliven our body through a mini detox.
So what is a cleanse, detox, weight loss or wellness program?
Detoxification encourages the body to remove toxins and can help to improve energy, fitness and weight loss as well as helping to prevent chronic disease and ageing. Our bodies are constantly detoxifying through several organs including our bowels, bladder, skin, lungs and of course the poor, overworked (especially at this time of the year) liver!
We all feel it - that sluggish, tired, bloated, depressed feeling we get when we’ve been over indulging, not exercising, not drinking enough water and not getting enough sleep.
There is a vast array of detox and weight loss programs out there, all promising to make you feel fantastic however one size does NOT fit all and it’s a matter of working out what is practical, healthy and right for you.
So, what can you do?
- Cut out junk
You will feel much better within a couple of days.
- DRINK MORE WATER
At least 1.5 to 2 litres.
- Concentrate on a whole foods diet
Rich in fresh vegetables and fruits, ideally organic and in season.
It's important to support the body’s ability to flush out toxins. 20-30 minutes of moderate exercise (brisk walking) 4 times per week.
- Avoid smoking
It increases the toxic load on your body.
- Sleep and rest well
Proper rest and a good night’s sleep is super important!
