Spring Clean your Body for Pure Radiant Beauty
Spring is a time for rejuvenation and renewal. We let go of and clear out the old in order to allow room for the fresh and the new.
Winter in contrast can lead to stagnation as we are less active, eat heavier foods and often are affected by colds and flu.
As a result toxins can build up in the body and leave the immune system suppressed and our energy levels low and flat.
We can often find ourselves in a vicious circle of feeling overwhelmed with the struggle of merely function in our daily lives which can lead to heavy, pessimistic thinking which then leads to low stifled energy and so the cycle goes on.
HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS. You now have a choice to change this by introducing small incremental steps towards clearing out old stagnant energy and toxins and opening up to new energy, fresh prospective and radiant health and beauty.
I’d invite you to play with even some of the suggestions below
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
In order to assist your body in flushing out toxins drink at least 6-8 glasses of water a day.
If you could drink two of those glasses warm and before breakfast that is even better. But just aim to drink plenty of water and do whatever it takes to look after and hydrate your body – e.g invest in a stainless steel water bottle that you always have with you or at home fill a beautiful pitcher of water and add slices of fruit or cucumber and mint so that it invites and reminds you to drink plenty.
ELIMINATE OR REDUCE REFINED SUGAR, PROCSSED FOOD AND ALCOHOL AND INTRODUCE MORE WATER RICH FRUIT AND VEGETABLES
I am not a huge fan of hard-core detoxification programmes. Often they can be hard on the body and leave you feeling headachy and sick. But without going to extremes you can begin by just introducing more water based fruit and vegetables, so having a fruit salad or fruit smoothie for breakfast. Then for your main meal reduce slightly the amounts of carbs and protein and fill ¾ of your plate with a tasty, vibrant salad.
Our bodies love to move so whatever form of movement brings your body joy carve some time out of your busy schedule and allow your body the joy of movement.
