For many people, the beginning of a brand-new year makes for the perfect time for a little self-improvement. There are many things that can be done differently at the start of a new year to help improve one’s overall health. Most of these things take very little effort to do, just a little routine and the discipline to keep up with a new habit.
Whether you start this the morning after your New Year’s Eve celebration, or a few days into 2023, here are a number of ways to naturally detox your body. Give some of them a try if you’d like to be healthier and feel better.
A lemon water detox drink is one of the easiest ways to detox naturally for beginners. You only need half of a lemon and a glass of warm water to pull this one off. Cut a lemon in half, squeeze it into a glass of warm water, stir, and drink this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
Drinking this easy-to-make basic drink first thing in the morning will help wake your body up and feel revitalized. Lemons have a high amount of antioxidants and vitamins, making them an awesome choice to use during your New Year’s Detox. You may find yourself using this quick morning drink permanently.
Cut Back on Sugar, or Eliminate It Temporarily
After the holiday season, our bodies could use a break from sugar. With all the desserts and holiday treats we consume from around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve, it’s good to stop the roller-coaster effect of insulin production going up and down.
Try eliminating all processed sugar foods and desserts for three weeks, to a month. Replace them with healthier alternatives. Fruits and vegetables can replace sugary sweets and leave your body feeling far better than it has been during the snack-loaded holiday season.
Try a Deodorant Detox
One aspect that is actually a negative of wearing antiperspirant underarm deodorant is that it stops us from sweating nearly as much as not wearing it. There can also be harmful products and ingredients used in many of the leading deodorant brands.
Our armpits were made to sweat. When we sweat, we release toxins that build in our bodies. This is one reason why exercise is so important, among a number of others. Try giving up wearing your normal, popular brand of antiperspirant deodorant. Make a switch to something healthier and made of all-natural materials. Or go a bit without wearing it.
This option can be a relaxing and healthy option you’ll enjoy during your new year. A nice hot bath with Epsom Salts can make a lot of difference to your health. Add a few essential oils and see how much better you feel afterward.
These are only four of many options available to us to jump-start our new year of health. Try some and see the difference.
