If the holiday indulgences have left you feeling less than healthy and perhaps a bit puffy and sluggish, you’re definitely not alone. All of the excessive eating, partying and sleep deprived nights have caught up to most of us by now and we’re ready to banish those extra holiday pounds now! How? A juice cleanse may be just the antidote you need to all the sugary sweets we ate the past few weeks.
You Are What You Eat
Get ready to explore some of the easiest ways to purify your body, add more vibrant energy to your day, center your mind and start the 2016 New Year off full of confidence with a glowing positivity. When you put the focus on clean, nutrient-dense foods from the earth, your body will receive the maximum nutrition it deserves.
Detoxing the Liver
If you’re feeling tired, irritable and bloated. Maybe your hair is falling out more than usual or your allergies are flaring up. If your skin is extra dry, fingernails are cracked and you’re having irregular bowel movements. Your liver may be run-down and toxic.
The liver is the largest and most complex organ in the body that cleans and filters our blood 24 hours a day. This filter for the body needs to be purged of toxins to stay healthy and function optimally. When the liver is stressed, it can lead to many health problems including weight gain, fatigue, aches, allergies and even cardiovascular and degenerative diseases.
Reboot Your Digestive System
Treat your body right and purify from the inside-out with a juice cleanse. Raw, organic vegetable and fruit juices are an amazing experience for your body to give your digestive system a chance to reboot and flush out unwanted toxins. Enhance the effects by engaging in gentle exercise and other purifying rituals such as meditation, dry-skin brushing and Epsom salt baths.
Here are a few more post-holiday detox tips to get back on track. The best part is that you can use these anytime of the year, not just after the holidays.
1. Control the kitchen environment.
Banish any unhealthy calorie bombs from the house. Those left over candies, cookies, and Aunt May’s famous fruit cake. Stock your home and office with healthy, delicious foods that are easy and ready to grab. Eat raw vegetables at every meal and prioritize breakfast every morning to avoid overeating later in the day.
2. Get physical every day.
Go for a walk, take a fitness class, or practice yoga. Exercise in any form acts as a stress reducer and can not only boost your feel-good endorphins, but also aid in digestion.
3. Sleep at least 7-8 hours a night.
Studies have shown that sleep disturbances are correlated with weight problems. So get the restorative rest your body needs and deserves. If you have trouble winding down, try aromatherapy, reading a good book or sipping on some herbal tea.
4. Drink fresh-pressed juice every day.
Embarking on a 1, 2 or 3-day juice cleanse can help you detoxify your body after times of excess and pave the way towards cleaner eating to start off on the right foot for 2016. And when you’re finished with your cleanse, enjoy the convenience of an organic juice daily to flood your body with vibrant vitamins and minerals – a guaranteed way of making sure that your body gets the nutrition it needs.
