This is a time of year when we start to feel our energy beginning to build again! Spring is coming and we know that we want to feel and look good for those days when our minds and bodies are energized by the warmth and light of spring days. Many times we want to jump into a cleanse and yet don't have the time for a full fast or deep detox...yet!
So here are a few simple daily adjustments that can support your body detox and are good for you in so many other ways too!
It may sound 'cliche' yet, skincare is a very important first step in the process of detoxifying the body. A pure, organic skincare routine can keep your skin healthy, protect you from environmental elements you are exposed to and keep your hormones safe from harmful chemicals that can wreak havoc on your body. Head over the to the website and take our Free Skin Reading to learn more about which products can support you and your skin and receive $5.00 off on your first purchase.
This simple step will help to kick-start your organs and help to flush out yesterdays toxins! Drinking water at room temperature is important, cold water first thing in the morning is shocking to your organs. Squeeze in some lemon (or if you prefer, apple cider vinegar) and you will gain these amazing benefits:
Moving our body daily is not something that really takes more time than one normally spends on social media these days! So drop the phone and take a walk, turn on some music and dance or do some simple stretching. Movement can release tension, help to move your toxins so they are released, and clears our mind. Moving will help hake off that sluggish feeling we get from sitting too much. Make sure is it something you do for yourself and if you can do it outside you get the extra benefit of the exhilaration from fresh air in your lungs and on your skin!
Your food, not just what you drink, can account for 20% of your daily fluid intake. Choosing foods that are rich in water and minerals is a great way to add energy. The more hydrated you are the faster your body can flush toxins from your system!
There are many other foods high in water content, melons (of course!), broccoli, radishes, green peppers, strawberries, and spinach to name a few. I want to emphasize the importance of choosing organic produce. Eating organic is an important way to reduce the amount of toxins (chemical pesticides, herbicides, etc.) your body has to process. Today we are blessed to have organic foods that are more affordable, so please choose organic when you can ~ for your body and the environment.
Take a deep breathe right now! We can easily find ourselves in shallow breathing many times during the day and just stopping to take a deep breathe several times can really bring us back into our bodies. If you take time to do even a few minutes of deep breathing daily it can help your body tremendously. Oxygen pushes out carbon dioxide to rid our bodies of toxins. When we oxygenate our blood it can better absorb the vitamins and minerals we feed it ~ and improves the flow of our lymphatic system. Spray yourself with some Organic Gem Juice ~ it will not only help you to remember to breathe deeply, it will bring you all the benefits of aromatherapy.
Our bodies are miraculous machines ~ so give yourself a little love and detox at the same time!
I would love to hear what your favorite ways are to detox!
Take care of you,
