Detox your body the natural way with these 7 easy steps that will have you glowing from the inside out.
1. Juice cleanse
Did you know that for most people, it takes almost 18 hours for your body to digest and eliminate one meal? Give your body a break and naturally flush out toxins whilst also keeping your body energized and satisfied. Simply replace 1 of your meal with juice or smoothies made of fresh fruit and feel lighter, brighter and GLOW today.
2. Sleep more
Sleep is when your body rebuilds and regenerates itself. Without adequate sleep, your immune system is compromised, it’s easier to gain weight and you lack energy. Not getting the rest you need and taking care of yourself doesn't allow your body to function optimally, which includes its ability to naturally cleanse itself.
3. Take a tech-tox
Did you know that Harvard Medical School scientists found that being on your laptop or mobile before bed can actually disrupt the body’s production of melatonin? This negatively affects our quality of sleep. Try a technology detox to improve your sleep patterns and be more present in your day-to-day life. Start by turning off your phone and TV 2 hours before you sleep.
4. Sweat it out
We all know that regular exercise is essential to maintain a healthy body but it is also an effective way of naturally cleansing the body through sweating. Not only that, it also aids with blood circulation and digestion.
If you find yourself too tired after work or hard to squeeze some extra time at night, try morning workout! You just need to wake up half an hour earlier and you will also feel more energized for the whole day.
5. Drink up!
Always keep a glass of water next to you. Increase your intake of detoxifying, antioxidant rich drinks like lemon water, green tea and fresh green juices to hydrate, nourish and protect the body whilst promoting its natural detoxification methods.
6. Eat more fibre
Fibre is an essential nutrient for the digestive system to function properly. Not eating enough fibre can result in bloating and sluggishness. When your digestive tract is working properly, toxins, waste, and anything else that has built up in within the tract will move through quickly helping you to feel lighter and more energized.
7. Reduce sugar
By reducing refined sugar in your diet, you’ll not only naturally improve your physical appearance (think glowing skin and unwanted weight) but you’ll also have improved immune system,brain function and serotonin levels (happy hormones).
