Out with the old, in with the new! You may be clearing out your office or your home for spring cleaning, but what about your body? It is the perfect time to take a few extra measures to detoxify your body so that you can be the healthiest, happiest version of yourself this spring!
Cut down on the toxins you are taking in.
The first step to cleaning out toxins in your body is to cut back (or completely eliminate) on things you put into your body that contain them! When something is hard for the body to digest, it can slow down your metabolism and cause toxins to accumulate in your body. Here are some things to avoid:
- Red meat
- Refined sugar
- Processed food
Be careful of your products.
Household cleaners, soaps, and beauty products can all contain harmful toxins that are absorbed through the skin. Choose these products carefully, and always make sure you know what’s in them. There are many great natural cleaners and products that can help reduce the toxins your skin and body are exposed to!
Drink lots of water.
Water has a multitude of benefits for your body, skin, and organs. Drinking enough water is extremely important in getting rid of toxins in the body. It helps boost metabolism and can literally flush out the harmful materials that have built up in your body.
Add plenty of dietary fiber and antioxidants to your diet.
Eating foods with plenty of fiber, such as organic fruits and vegetables and whole grains, will help your body move the toxins out. Antioxidants help to fight free radicals and help to further remove harmful materials and toxins from the body.
Sweat it out.
Sweating is a very effective way for the body to get rid of toxins. Achieving this through exercise also keeps your organs and systems working properly, which plays a key role in releasing toxins. Aside from exercising, hopping into a sauna or hot bath can help, too!
Removing toxins from your body is key to living a healthy life. While you’re clearing out your junk drawer this spring, follow the steps above to help clear your body of the “junk” it’s been storing as well!
