Christmas is over and we are all feeling the effects of over- indulging on the mulled wine and mince pies. You might feel slugglish, unmotivated and skin looking dull and botchy. We say, it’s time for a detox! It’s time to get more active, eat healthier and give more time to self- care. Here are some ways that will help you detox this January.
Up the water
We don’t realise how important water is for us, it helps keep all your vital organs working properly, maintains healthy skin and complexion, increases metabolism, boosts your energy and so much more!
Cut the sugar
Most of us have a sweet tooth and it’s ok to enjoy treats occasionally but when you have too much sugar it can have negative effect on your body. Not only is it bad for your teeth but it can make you age faster, weakens immunity as it unbalances your guts micro-flora, causes your blood sugar to be unstable and increases your risk of diseases and illness. So cutting down on sugar can only be a benefit and help you keep healthy.
Increase the fruit and veggies
Fruit and vegetables are full of essential vitamins and minerals which your body needs. They are not only good for maintaining a healthy eating plan and managing your weight but it increases your health by reducing your risk of illnesses and diseases.
Exercise is really important to help us stay healthy as it burns fat, helps keep our muscles and bones strong, lowers your risk of illness and disease, increase energy levels, improves skin health, improves sleep and it is brilliant for our mental well- being as it releases chemicals like endorphins and serotonin that improve your mood!
Most of us love a cup of tea or coffee in the morning to help us face the day but are you actually doing your body any favours by drinking it? Caffeine is one of the most common reasons why people suffer with insomnia, anxiety and high blood pressure. Try swapping your usual tea and coffee to an invigorating hot lemon water, it is rich in vitamin C, maintains the perfect PH balance of the body, increases metabolism and increases energy levels so no need for your caffeine!
Treat yourself to a massage
As well as being really relaxing, a massage can be extremely beneficial to your health as well. It increases joint flexibility and movement, stimulates your lymphatic system which aids removal of toxins and helps to get rid of cellulite!
