Summer has officially ended and we’re ready to welcome fall with open arms. With fall comes cooler temperatures and layered clothing. But for many, fall signifies the start of the gluttony that is holiday feasts.
How you treat your body will have a direct effect on your overall health. So how do you keep mind and body fine tuned through the football and holiday seasons? Try these detox strategies to help restart your body and feel better about yourself.
Regular exercise can benefit us in a number of ways. Not only will it help you shed some pounds, it can also prevent the occurrence of certain diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. In addition, it promotes sweating, which can help release toxins from our body. No matter how busy you are, try to incorporate exercise into your daily routine.
Maintaining a healthy is important for our health. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, lean meat and whole grains. Avoid sweet, processed and junk foods. Also, don’t forget to drink lots of water. This will help keep you hydrated and will help flush out toxins as well.
Meditation is a great way to calm the mind. It also helps reduce stress and promote a more restful sleep. Studies have found that regular meditation contributes to improved overall well-being, increased self-awareness and acceptance.
Take a break from technology
You may not notice it, but staying glued to your smart phone can induce stress. Some even check their emails after office hours. Instead of relaxing and spending some time with your family, you find yourself reading and answering emails. Others would even keep their smartphones by their side so they can easily check their phones once in a while.
Try to take a break from technology once in a while and start living in the moment. Turn off your phone when you’re having dinner with your family. Engage in a good conversation with them. Your emails can wait.
Spend time in nature
Get out in nature more often. Go to the beach or sit under a tree. If you own a bike, tag a friend along and explore some places you haven’t been to.
Give thanks for all that you have and all that you are. It is also a great time to thank everyone who helped and guided you.
