With the festive season coming to an end and the endless consumption of small chops, chicken, desserts and whatever indulgence you had ceased, you are probably walking around with dead weight and thinking of ways to reset your system. Not to worry, we have you covered with several DIY detox ideas to get you healthy, up and running in no time.
DRINK LOADS OF WATER!
Water helps fight antibodies and flushes out your system. The good thing about water is how versatile it can be, you can add a slice of lemon to give some flavour and the benefits that come with it. You can include other types of fruits to add fun in the mix, get added benefits and a burst of natural flavours.
GET ENOUGH SLEEP!
The body needs at least 8 hours of sleep to function; through the holiday you would have manipulated with your sleep pattern by having long nights out. For your brain to work as normal and to just get back into your regular schedule, you would need to catch up on sleep.
LITTLE OR NO SUGAR DIET
Sugar consumption aids bacteria, seeing as you are trying to cleanse your system, the last thing in your diet should be sugar. You already had loads of it during the holidays, you need to work with discipline.
STAY AWAY FROM CAFFEINE!
Caffeine has a way of interfering with nutrients; having a cup of coffee in the morning should find its way off your morning routine. Swap anything with caffeine for water instead.
GET YOUR EXERCISE ON!
The process of working out involves passing out sweat as waste, which releases toxin and is definitely a point of detoxing. You can include fun activities like dancing to your work out to make it more enjoyable.
