3 Natural Ways to De-tox after the holidays
Lots of water will help cleanse your system and get you back on a healthier track. Many people forget to drink enough water. Remember you should have at least 2 to 3 litres of water per day. If you are active and exercising you should have even more. So think about it: Are you drinking enough?
Many people tend to plan a New Year’s resolution workout schedule with every intention of getting great results, but why not get started now?
If you are already a member of a gym, don’t let the hectic Christmas schedule become an excuse to miss your workouts. Get a good head start on the new year!
If you haven’t a gym membership yet, get onto the road for a run or meet some friends for a five a side game of football. Remember, it doesn’t have to be much, just something to get the heart rate up and the lungs pumping.
- Add Healthy Foods or Try Something New
Here are some ideas and principles to get you started. Do you get at least five fruit and vegetable servings in a day? Try making all the grains you eat whole grains. Choose only lean protein foods eg: Turkey, chicken, fish. Eat breakfast daily. Do you drink enough water (see No. 1)? Make a conscience effort to include some good nutrition into your daily meal plan. Or if you are a picky eater, set a small goal to try a new food every week. Remember it takes 20 to 30 times to try something before you acquire a taste for it.
