Start 2019 Off on the Right Foot with these 8 Easy Detox Ideas | FitMinutes.com

Whether you’ve accomplished your fitness goals or are still working your way along that roller coaster of a ride to reach those goals, there’s one thing that is certain… the holidays can sure derail them. The good news? It’s easy to get back on track. You don’t need to punish yourself with a super restrictive diet though. Take a look at these 8 easy detox ideas that will help get yourself back to that goal-focused, disciplined mindset.

1. Break a Sweat

The best way to get back into the swing of things? Get moving again. Maybe you didn’t have as much time over the holidays to get into the gym or get moving as you were hoping, but don’t think you need to throw yourself right back into the mix. Squeeze in a home workout, go for a jog or twist yourself into some yoga poses. Whatever it is, just get yourself moving again, and progressively ease yourself back into the swing of your normal routine.

2. Infuse Your Water with Fruit

AKA detox water, but we would rather think of it as you just being healthy. Detox water has shown to rid of toxins in the body, improve pH levels and boost the immune system. It’s simple to make and you can get creative with what you choose to infuse your water with, plus you’re drinking more water, which has obvious benefits of its own.

3. Eat Your Veggies

There is no arguing the health benefits of vegetables for the human body. They contain many vitamins and minerals which are crucial for overall health and maintenance. Add more veggies into your meals to replace all of the holiday treats and alcohol you may have over-imbibed in.

4. Whip Up Some Detox Soup

This isn’t a special soup that will help you drop 10 pounds overnight. It is simply just packed with wholesome and healthy nutrients that are crucial for your health. This Tumeric Lentil Soup is packed with ingredients that will provide your body with anti-inflammatory nutrients which are important after eating not so healthy meals and treats. Get the recipe here.

5. Drink Your Juice

The benefits of juicing are plentiful. The micronutrients are so good for your body—they help remove toxins and will make your stomach feel a little better if it’s not so hot after all of that cheerful beer.

6. Put Your Phone Away and Get Outside

Get yourself outside to enjoy some fresh air. Go on a hike, a walk with the fam, a jog, anything that will get you out of the house and moving a little bit. You’d be surprised how much better you feel afterward!

7. Take a Relaxing Bath

The benefits of baths are super underrated, especially when you toss in a few good-for-you ingredients. Try a hot bath with some lavender oil, Epsom salts and a little bit of baking soda. This will help balance your body’s pH., lower stress-related hormones and even draw out toxins.

🌸Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone else to bring you flowers. – Jorge Luis Borges . . ✨Once a week for 20 minutes, take a hot bath that has 10 drops of lavender oil, a handful of Epsom salts, and 1/2 a cup of baking soda. This mix draws out toxins, lowers stress related hormones, and balances pH levels. Remember to drink a glass of cold water and lay down for at least 15 minutes so you can recharge. ✨ . 📸 @thecolourfuldot . . . . . #selfcareisthebestcare #healingcrystals #rosequartz #thelovestone #detoxbath #crystalhealing #empaths #highervibes #goddess #mondaymeditation #affirmations #bemindful #treatyoself #detox #mondaynightrelaxation #holistichealth #lavender #essentialoil #epsomsalts #bakingsoda #becausemonday
