The next stop on my 5 top tips to help you onto your wellness path is Natural Detox!
2. Natural Detoxing!
Our bodies are designed to naturally detox and cleanse, so work with it.
Each night our organs go through a cleansing process while we are sleeping enabling us to function and have a beautiful productive day when we wake. It is super quick & easy to add in daily rituals to our routine that will help our body eliminate toxins further.
It doesn’t have to be expensive and time-consuming, here are a few of my favourite daily cleansing rituals:
*Dry brushing for 5 mins before a shower, salt bath or power walk (either or…morning or night – preferably morning)
*Start my morning by drinking with Hot Water & Fresh Lemon Juice followed by consuming 750ml of filtered water at room temperature.
*Breaking my fast at a minimum of 12 hours from when I last ate. This allows the body’s digestive system to really process and breakdown all the food and nutrients we gave it the day before. When you do this, it is important to consider what you break the fast with. Aim for something light such as fruit, smoothies or soup.
If you go straight for the bacon sandwich or cooked breakfast it’d be like not moving your body for 12 hours and then attempting to sprint for a mile – you would end up with injuries, both silent and ones that make NOISE!
*Move my body a little every day. If I don’t have time for a 90 min yoga practice or even for a 20 min power walk then I will always gently move my body along with some deep breathing. Move your body in a way that feels good to you and use a long deep breath. This not only helps keep you young from the inside, it also helps alleviate any stagnation in the lymph system.
*POO – The whole day pivots on the perfect poo! “I feel so good for not POOING….said no one, EVER!” Enough said.
