It’s officially Spring! We’re loving the sunshine, the longer days and the colorful flowers starting to pop up from a long winter’s sleep. As we watch the rest of the world coming back to life, we feel more motivated to be healthy and active and get our bodies back into shape after a cold, sluggish winter. So how can you shake off those winter time blues for good? Try starting with a Spring Detox! We’ve got some tips that will help naturally detox your body, mind and spirit so you can get that spring back in your step.
Drink lots water– Water helps flush out those toxins that can build up in your system. Add some lemon slices to give it some flavor and to help jumpstart your digestion.1
Probiotics– Balancing the intestinal microflora in your gut will help boost your immune system and get rid of some of those unwanted toxins. We recommend our super hydrating GoodBelly Coconut Water with 20 Billion probiotics per 8 oz serving.
Diet– Consume lots of raw vegetables and avoid processed foods. Cut down on dairy, sugar, gluten, alcohol and caffeine. (we know, we know, that’s a tall order!)1
Exercise– Get your body moving! Movement will help get that stagnant energy moving through.1
Yoga/Meditation– Stress reducing activities such as yoga and/or meditation will help clear your mind and nurture your spirit.3
Sweat– Sweat it out! Sweating is your body’s natural way of detoxifying. You can sweat through exercise or spend some time in a sauna for a more relaxing session.
Skin exfoliation– Try skin brushing to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and unclog your pores.2
Sleep– Sleep is so NOT overrated. Your body needs this time to repair and restore so make sure you’re getting a proper night’s sleep.3
Make it a lifestyle– Many of these tips are super easy to incorporate into your life regularly so that you can feel healthier, lighter and more vibrant throughout the year!
Good Belly probiotic drinks are available in our refrigerated section.
