Take a Spa Day
Take some time off from your busy schedule and treat yourself to a relaxing spa day. You will rejuvenate your mind and your body and leave feeling refreshed. To continue cleansing, drink water before and after your spa treatments. The water will reduce soreness and help flush the body of toxins released from your muscles.
Cleanse Your Environment
Don’t just cleanse your body. Live in a toxin-free environment, too. Using non-toxic home cleaners helps rid your home of unnatural substances that can be harmful to your health. Go green, live clean, and help the environment, too.
Revamp Your Beauty Routine
Did you know that many makeup and beauty products contain chemicals that can be harmful to your skin? Even the fragrance in lotions is due to countless added chemicals. Read your labels and aim for as few toxic ingredients as possible.
If you’re always going out with friends, try taking a night to yourself and staying in. Give your mind and body a break from distractions and social pressures by relaxing at home. Throw in a movie and enjoy!
Take a Bath
Take a long bath instead of a shower tonight. Light some candles in your bathroom, use aromatherapy or incense, and play soothing music. Relax your mind and allow yourself to peacefully meditate without any distractions. You’ll come out feeling rejuvenated!
Clutter around your house and in your schedule can cause you to feel stressed, anxious, and even unhealthy. Restructure your days so they flow more smoothly, and rearrange your furniture for a fun new look. Organize your life so your health can benefit!
Fiber is amazing for detoxifying your body, and the health benefits are endless. It cleanses your body and your digestive tract and helps things run more smoothly. Choose foods like brown rice, broccoli, and other cruciferous raw veggies and fruits to add more fiber to your diet.
Blueberries are extremely high in cleansing antioxidants and also keep your memory clear and sharp! Throw some in a bag for a snack on the go.
Eat as clean as possible! Many foods in stores contain dangerous toxins that will harm your body. Certified organic foods, however, are grown free of pesticides and chemicals. Incorporating organic foods into your diet will help cleanse your body of these harmful chemicals!
For a socially conscious move, buy locally grown foods! You get to give back to your community in a green way, support local growers, and by reducing travel time, your fruits and veggies will contain more enzymes to aid in digestion!
Garlic is RICH in antioxidants and is a great detoxifier! It promotes the well-being of the heart and immune system and helps maintain healthy blood circulation. Add some to your food for an extra flavor kick that packs a punch.
Ditch Junk Food
Say no to junk food! All that processed “food” causes you to become overweight, unhealthy, and is bad for your heart. Eat foods in their raw and natural form instead. If Mother Nature didn’t make it that way, don’t eat it!
Try going vegan! There are endless benefits to the vegan lifestyle like disease prevention, good nutrition, avoiding harmful processed junk, helping the environment, and more. By cutting out animal products, you are greatly reducing the amount of toxins put into your body.
Decorate with Plants
Keep green plants inside your home. They bring natural beauty to any room and also bring great health benefits with them! Plants will increase oxygen production, clean up carbon dioxide, and purify your air for a cleaner home in no time.
Volunteer your time to a nonprofit organization in your community! Doing something for the good of others will bring you new friends, help you stay physically healthy, and increase your self-confidence and sense of accomplishment.
Say no to Smoking
Cigarettes contain over 4,000 different chemicals, including nicotine, tar, hydrogen cyanide and even arsenic, all of which are extremely poisonous to your body. It is a nasty habit and you are not doing your health and the health of others any good by smoking. If you smoke, start quitting today!
Sweat it Out
Pick an exercise that will make you sweat to release toxins from your body! Try embracing cardio. It’s a major calorie-busting workout. Afterwards, you will feel proud of yourself for finishing your workout and sticking to it!
And by that, we mean water, water, water! Drinking lots of water will cleanse your body, clear your skin, and you’ll feel lighter, leaner, and healthier too. Sometimes we just don’t get enough of it, so bring some with you wherever you go!
Drinking liquids out of plastic bottles is a big no-no! Plastic bottles and containers have toxins like BPA that are harmful to your body and your health. Why ruin a great cleanser like water by having dangerous toxins with it? Purchase a cute eco-friendly water bottle instead, and you’ll actually want to bring it with you wherever you go.
Sitting for long hours in front of mindless entertainment creates a sedentary lifestyle which is bad for your health. Limiting the time you spend watching tv and surfing the internet will naturally create a healthier and more active lifestyle. Practice yoga, go for a walk, get out into nature – whatever you decide, just get up and get going!
