Five Tips to Jumpstart Your Spring Detox
Spring is around the corner and before long it will be time to shed your winter coats and come out of hibernation. Spring is the ideal time to detox, reset, cleanse and renew your overall health and well-being. You’ve heard about products that help you detox and cleanse. You’ll even find a few of them on All Star Health. But remember, detoxing is not a one-time, permanent quick fix. You need to follow a sensible program of diet and exercise year-round. You also need to think of your mind and spirit.
For this article, we have five practical suggestions that will help you on your path to rejuvenation.
1.Drink lots of water
You’ve heard it time and again, drink more water! The Mayo Clinic recommends aiming for nine cups a day to help flush toxins in your liver and kidneys. Drinking water before a meal can also help take the edge of hunger. It is, of course, important to drink up before and after a workout. Try starting every day with a glass of water with lemon. The lemon aids in digestion and it is packed with Vitamin C.
2. Cut out processed foods.
Common sense, right? It is better to know what you are eating. Read the labels and if there’s something on the ingredient list that you can’t even pronounce, it’s best to skip it. Processed foods have way too much salt, sugar, and oil.
3.Eat whole, real foods.
Of course, since you are cutting out processed and junk foods, it is logical to eat whole foods. Make fresh food like soups, salads and stir-fries. Perfect for springtime weather. Choose organic produce when possible. To add flavor to your dishes, use natural herbs and spices. Stock up a healthy kitchen.
4.Go outside and exercise.
Winter and jacket season is behind you, so go outside and move. You can walk, run, bike and engage in fun outdoor activities.
Deep breathing exercises are essential to any detox. Sounds simple and obvious but it’s true by taking deep conscious breaths, you will cleanse your mind and lungs.
