When you hear the word detox, the first things that come to mind usually giving up a whole lot of things! Sure, some old fashioned detoxes might work, but nowadays there are much more modern and diverse ways to detox that will work for you! Here are ways to detox that do not involve giving anything up:
This detox involves giving up one thing, and that is tiredness. Be strict with yourself and commit to getting at least seven hours of sleep every night. You aren’t missing out on anything apart from staring at your phone for three hours in bed before dozing off, and that will leave you massively refreshed and more ready to take on the day every morning.
Rather than doing anything with your food intake in terms of fasting, instead go the other way and make sure that you drink more and more water. Get into the habit of drinking the recommended eight glasses per day, and you will find that your metabolism experiences a beneficial boost, as well as things like your skin being in better condition and your digestion working at a much better rate.
Take in the fresh air
Your body can go through lots of signs of detoxing simply by taking fresh air for long periods! An extra hour per day outside can improve the quality of the air coming into your body, and can also improve your mood and mental wellbeing in general
Don’t underestimate the power of stretching! There are muscles in your body that you don’t really get the chance to utilise on an average day, so getting into a routine of stretching and special poses can give your body the experience of going through something of a sensory detox without making any changes. Stretching can provide some real comfort when it comes to distressing and trying to find avenues to rid your body of its daily anxieties
Do things that give you pleasure
Find things that make you feel good, and you will be much less likely to want to turn to unhealthy urges like snacking, drinking etc.! Good books, good movies, good company … all of these things can be just as much a detox for the body as they already are a detox for the soul.
