Take a bath
Did you know that epsom salts can actually help your body detox? Run a warm bath filled with baking soda, sea salt, apple cider vinegar, and essential oils to relax and unwind. It will also have a positive influence on high stress levels.
Nourish your body from the inside by enjoying a green juice or smoothie. Lemon, cucumber, kale, and spinach are all natural ways to detox the body first thing in the morning. Add some sweet fruits to make the drink taste a little better!
Have a massage
Massages – particularly those such as foot reflexology – can have help to stabilise the entire body. Regular massages have also been proven to boost circulation, ease chronic pain and even detox the body.
Fill up a large water bottle and keep it with you all day long to flush out those bad toxins. It really is as simple as that!
Sometimes sitting around waiting for your body to feel better just doesn’t work. Take a brisk walk in the park, go to a pilates class, or even run it out on the treadmill for 15 minutes. Your body will feel much better and the rush of endorphins is always a good thing.
Incorporate more superfoods into your daily diet since they are packed with nutrients and antioxidants. Salmon, tuna, olive oil, flaxseed oil and avocado are just a few main superfoods that are beneficial for good health.
Avoid processed sugars
Get rid of those bad toxins in the body by cutting out processed sugars in your diet. Replace these foods with legumes, protein and lean meats to make your body feel fuller for longer.
Or chamomile teas are a great alternative since they help to relax the body after a long, stressful day. If you find the taste a little sour, a few drops of honey or lemon juice can make it naturally sweeter.
