I found some great ways to detox my body. I lost 20lbs, I have more energy and I feel happier throughout my day. Here’s a few ways to detox and start pushing yourself towards a healthier lifestyle…

 

1. The Detox Mixture

Detox Water

Ingredients:

  •                           2 thinly sliced lemons
  •                           1 thinly sliced lime
  •                           1/2 thinly sliced cucumber
  •                           3 to 5 mint leaves
  •                           1 large water bottle

 

This drink works! Try to drink it twice daily, preferably before meals. Everyone has their own preference; however I love the taste  when the drink mix is cold. Enjoy!

2. Drink Green Tea

Here’s a drink to fight about it in regards to taste (according to my sister). But honestly, it’s great! Green tea has wonderful  health benefits such as antioxidants,  lower cholesterol, natural stimulant (caffeine) and it can also increase metabolism. The Japanese are known to have morning tea and afternoon tea time. I do the same. You should too!

3. Drink Water

Of course, water is the essential compound for living. It is obvious that drinking water has many benefits. It helps control calorie intakes, it flushes out toxins, boost immune system and it moisturizes your skin.

4. Exercise

Physical activity can prevent a wide range of health problems and concerns. Physical activity is another great way to cleanse your body of unhealthy fats. Take a brisk walk in the morning, ride your bike with the kids or even go on a hike with friends. You don’t have to work like an Olympic athlete but just know you can have fun and obtain the benefits.

5. Meditate

Meditation is not just a religious practice or some serious practice of only the few and reasoning minds.  Actually, more people are using meditation to help cope with their everyday lives.  Meditating can be a moment of silence, a nice walk by the lake or sitting in a nice rocking chair on your porch. The key is to be in the moment, take deep breathes and control the “ball”. I was taught to imagine a ball bouncing, like how emotions flow up and down; now by meditating, focus on controlling the ball to the middle where everything is harmonious and emotions such as anger are obsolete.

Clean Mind, Clean Body
