Easy Tips on Detoxing After Holiday Indulging


A seasonal detox is an effective way to clear your body of toxins, which will also speed up your metabolism and enhance your overall health. Follow these easy tips from shape.com to kick start healthy habits after indulging over the holidays.

Start by decreasing the amount of sugar you consume, including honey, molasses, and artificial sweeteners.

Drink a tall glass of water with juice from half of a lemon in the morning to help rehydrate and promote digestion.

Regular exercise encourages circulation in the blood and lymph system, and will so enhance digestion, reduce tension, lubricate joints, and strengthen your body.

Drinking tea is beneficial not only because it is full of antioxidants, it also hydrates you and fills you up!

You should eat whole plant foods because processed foods lack the nutrients your body needs. Dark green vegetables, for instance, are full of micronutrients and are very low in calories, so you can eat a lot of them.
 
Don't forget that pollution and allergens are all around you. They're in the air and can trigger allergy symptoms (such as yucky, puffy, red eyes). Flushing your nasal passages regularly with a saline solution can eliminate side effects of air pollutants and lead to better breather.
