12 Easy Ways to Detoxify, Energize, and Relax for Health

Energized

I’ve seen a number of articles lately (and even written a few myself) concerning the best ways to relax; but it has become increasingly obvious (mostly through blog commentary) that relaxation is only a small component of overall health. What’s more, when people are stressed enough to research relaxation techniques, they tend to also be looking for easy ways to boost their energy levels and detoxify their bodies. In that spirit, I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite ways to incorporate all three health-boosters into your life. I’ve taken particular care to ensure none of these are prohibitively expensive and to ensure that they are easy to fit into the very busy lives that we all lead. What’s more, no single suggestion is dependent on another, so you can try any or all of these and still reap some pretty fantastic rewards. Here goes:

  • Add regular massage and/or yoga to your wellness routine
  • Take 10-minute walk breaks throughout the day; even if you work in an office, you surely have occasional breaks; get out in the fresh air and move around for a few minutes
  • Drink plenty of clean, pure water; fresh spring, filtered or reverse osmosis
  • If you aren’t exercising regularly, start—exercise not only burns calories but drastically improves our energy levels
  • Meditate! If this doesn’t appeal to you at first, try a 5-minute guided session until you get the hang of it
  • Schedule technology-free hours or even days (if you reasonably can)
  • Add some greenery to your home and/or office; greenery has proven top-notch in detoxifying the environment
  • Cut down on air fresheners and instead open a window and set out some flowers
  • Cut down on blended coffee drinks and replace them with green or herbal tea at least once a day
  • Go meatless every Monday (and if you eat beef, go grass-fed organic)
  • Start buying organic produce when possibleorganic_vegetables
  • Eat more veggies! There are a bazillion ways to get more veggies in your diet; if you happen not to love the taste of our little green friends, hide them in smoothies, on homemade pizza, or add them to your favorite sandwich or pasta sauce

 

There are, of course, plenty of other ways to improve your health and wellness, but these should provide you with a start. Incorporate only a few and I suspect you’ll see pretty major shifts in your energy and stress levels, not to mention in your overall health!

    Fantastic Post! In addition to your list,Do Not Skip Breakfast. Why? In the morning, simple carbohydrates cause and immediate increase of your blood sugar level which results in your body compensating for the extra sugar load. Sugar in excess of energy needs is converted and stored as fat. The result is a decreased blood sugar and a hunger for more carbohydrates. Skipping breakfast = more fat. A Balanced Protein based breakfast = less fat. eat every two to three hours, even if you are not hungry. This cycle repeats two to three times during the day. Also, this helps to keep your energy levels up through out the day = avoiding afternoon/late afternoon "burn out" = avoiding consuming a large dinner at the end of your day. Water: drink at least half your body weight (which I am pretty sure if nutrition is a course that is provided or a prerequisite in your school), helps keep you hydrated, cleanses your "system"/GI tract, flushes toxins (detox) out of your body, helps to keep inner and outer positive healthy benefits, especially your skin. If you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated. Helps curb appetite is a major plus. Helps eliminate bad breath, a detox for your taste buds (meaning, if you are used to eating something sweet, after a week or so - depending on your health or eating habits - when you do eat something sweet, it will taste much more sweeter than you are used to; similar to someone who quits smoking for a while, then when he/she smokes a cigarette, it has a bad taste.
