The holiday season is a wonderful time. We love celebrating with our family and friends, and these celebrations help us all come together! During this time you probably indulged. It’s okay to indulge once in a while, but make sure it’s offset with a generally healthy lifestyle by exercising and maintaining good eating habits most of the time.
Here are the best post-holiday activities that will help you to get back on track & kick-start your detox efforts.
Make sure that you rehydrate with lots of fluids, especially water. Water allows your body’s detoxification system to remove waste products from your blood and also help your body recover from whatever damage that that time off did to it. What if you don’t like the taste of plain water? Flavor your water with lemon slices and other fruit pieces to make it more appealing.
Getting enough sleep every night has a host of benefits for your physical and mental health. The body requires adequate sleep for the smooth functioning of the brain cells so that your body flush out toxins while sleeping. So, have a sound sleep for 7-8 hours to detoxify and recover yourself.
Healthy eating is the foundation of good health, so have healthy meals throughout the break. You can keep your body’s detoxification system healthy by consuming less junk food, increasing your Fiber intake, including foods that are rich in vitamins A, C and E can do a world of good to your gut health, stabilize your metabolism rate and detoxify your body of toxins.
Exercise doesn’t just help your body look fit and toned, it also boosts your mood and helps with stress too. Some quick stretches in the morning and 30 minutes of cardiodaily will provide nutrients and oxygen supply to muscles to speed up recovery. Yoga is particularly good because it detoxifies the system, focuses on breathing and posture, eliminates stress and improves digestion and circulation.
Winter is the time of year when our skin needs the most TLC and hydration due to the dry and cold weather. The best way to help your skin get back to its normal state is by moisturizing daily and getting enough vitamin D in your diet.
