Five Minute Detoxification Habits You Should Do Everyday
You are what you do and what you eat. Do good things and you will be classified as a good person. Eat healthy food and your body will be healthy. Everyday, our body is exposed to toxins and unhealthy substances, and its up to our body to flush them out. If you’re a smoker and a frequent drinker, your body, particularly your liver and kidneys, will be overwhelmed by the toxins dished out by cigarettes and liquor.
Detoxification, both internal and external, should be done everyday especially if you want to be fit and healthy, and at the same time, have radiant skin. Performing this will amplify the effects of your anti aging cream, making you look more youthful and appealing. So, what are some everyday detox habits you would want to perform? Here are some suggestions:
If you sum up the time spent everyday in drinking pure water, you might have spent less than five minutes gorging more than eight glasses. Pure drinking water is arguably the most underrated drink, and most people prefer to stuff themselves with sugar-rich drinks, like cola, iced tea and carbonated drinks. You can pair a glass of water with the following substances:
- Lemon. Squeezing the juice out of a whole fruit not only give you an ample amount of vitamin C, but also help in stimulating your bowels and bladder (thus flushing out waste and toxins), and promotes overall skin health.
- Honey. Adding a couple of teaspoons of this sweet, viscous liquid will give you a quick energy boost (due to its sugar content). It also has antimicrobial properties which may help clear the bacteria on your throat and upper respiratory tract.
Getting a glass of water and adding these will only take a few minutes, so start it today!
Drink a glass of tea
Other than plain old water, you would want to make tea-drinking a habit. Although it is THE most popular drink in the world, it is underappreciated by most people, who elect to drink coffee instead. The British are the most avid drinkers; the whole population drinks a whopping 165 million times everyday.
Regardless if you’re drinking black, green or yellow tea, each has a detoxifying, laxative and cleansing properties. Recent studies also suggest it is carcinogenic, so drinking it is a big plus. So, be sure to drink a couple of cups everyday! If you don’t like the bitter taste, you can add a bit of sugar, honey or milk!
Eating a fruit or a vegetable with your daily meals
An apple a day truly keeps the doctor away. Regardless of the contents of your plate, adding a few pineapple slices, an apple, or a few sliced tomatoes will add a good amount of fiber into your body. Instead of ice cream and cakes as desserts, eat sweet fresh fruits instead – it takes just less five minutes to slice and prepare them!
Once you make any of these a habit, you will be able to sleep soundly every night. Remember, being healthy and eliminating toxins is one of the best ways to become healthy. So, take a nice, long shower and start your day right!
