A detox is when you rid your body of unwanted toxins and substances. There are many different forms of detoxing depending on your needs at the moment and what your overall desired outcome may be. Not all detoxing programs are about losing weight. We have broken it down into two categories: a health detox and a mind, body, and spirit detox.
Health Detox: Cleansing your body of all of the processed items that are in many of the foods that we eat today. Putting all-natural organic healthy foods into your system instead of processed food…out with the bad, in with the good. Eating a clean diet is one of the best ways to detoxify your body and cleanse it.
Mind, body, spirit detox: Meditation and yoga are great ways to “detox” your mind from the day to day hustle. Clear your mind of all of the negative thoughts and keep saying to yourself positive affirmations as you go along. Try taking one minute out of every hour of your day and pay attention to your breathing, taking at least five slow deep breaths. Set a reminder on your phone to breathe and relax especially if you are busy and stressed out at work.
The stress of everyday life and responsibilities often pile up on us and make us feel suffocated at times. So we challenge you all to laugh and little more, lighten up, smile at one another, and maybe even share a hug if you are feeling like it. Did you know that hugging someone comes along with a lot of benefits? The biggest one being that it increases our levels of serotonin, oxytocin, and dopamine which will reduce the feeling of stress and anxiety.
Not the hugging type? Laughing will also naturally make you feel at ease and has a lot of the same health benefits along with it along with lowering your blood pressure.
PUT THE PHONE DOWN. So many things that we are seeing online these days are toxic to our thoughts and ideas and alter the way we think in many ways without even realizing it. Try going a day using your phone for important matters only… no social media, no browsing the internet. It may seem hard at first but it helps!
There are many benefits that come along with detoxing especially health-related detoxes. One of the main ones being that it comes along with a boost of energy. Many times throughout the day we will get that sluggish feeling and that is due to there being an excessive amount of toxins in your body, slowing you down.
Another benefit is that detoxing can help to strengthen your immune system and help your digestive tract. Overall it helps to promote a healthy lifestyle and gives you a kickstart in the right direction. With all of this you will find you have an improved mood and many times better sleep, so who wouldn’t want that?!
Did you know that sleep is one of your body’s natural detox systems? When we are sleeping it allows our brain to recharge itself and to actually remove toxic waste that has built up during the day. When we are not getting enough sleep at night our body does not have the proper amount of time that it needs to get rid of these toxins in-return creating a build-up.
How many of us can truthfully say that we are drinking AT LEAST one gallon of water a day? Water has so many benefits to it rather than just to quench your thirst. Drinking a gallon a day has so many health benefits connected to it one of the biggest ones being that it will help aid in digestion in-return detoxifying your body. Staying properly hydrated also helps with the outside too, like healthy glowing skin, and can help with that awful bloating some of us may get from time to time.
