Even though we’re almost halfway through 2020, you can still make major changes to your life—you don’t have to wait until January 1, 2021 to decide to make a change. With the rise of today’s current events, more people than ever are starting to prioritize their health and safety. One of the best ways to do this is to start detoxing your life. Detoxing your life will help you recharge and rejuvenate your mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing. Think of it as a mid-year spring cleaning. Detoxing helps us cleanse our bodies and gives us mental clarity to focus on the things that mean the most to us. To take back your health today, there are three important steps in the detoxing process. First, we need to reassess the foods we eat. Next, we need to consider how the materials we use affect us. Finally, it’s time to take a long look at the products we’re using and the information we’re consuming. The most efficient way of detoxing your life comes when you combine all three of these steps, so let’s take a closer look at each of them so you can get started today.
The first step is to reassess the foods we eat regularly. The “Dirty Dozen” are highly concentrated with dangerous pesticides and do more harm than good. Try to remove them from your diet and only buy organic. You can easily find the updated list on Google, just remember to take it with you when you go grocery shopping. Next, start removing some of the common food irritants in your diet. You can try to do a month-long detox where you eliminate dairy, eggs, soy, legumes, grains (which includes corn), alcohol, gluten, caffeine, and processed foods to see how your body responds. You’ll notice a huge difference immediately! Finally, as we mentioned, always choose organic foods and try to eat more wild-caught fish and grass-fed meats. To aid in your healthy diet, drink lots of water and try to exercise at least three times a week.
The next step is to learn more about the materials that you’re using in your everyday life. By using single-use plastics, we’re exposing ourselves to dangerous chemicals and additives. On the bottom of all plastics are numbers that provide more details about the chemical makeup of each item. If you must use plastics, #2 and #4 are the safest, #1 and #5 are okay, but #3, #6, and #7 should be avoided at all costs! These plastics have dangerous chemicals that leach into the products and have known adverse health effects. For the safest option, choose glass containers and bring your own reusable cups to coffee shops.
Finally, we need to check our products. This includes all of our cleaning products, hygienic products, makeup, lotions, and more. The safest products to use at home are: paraben-free, BPA-free, and phthalates-free for the best detoxing effects. There are so many great products that are manufactured without additives these days, there’s really no excuse to keep using ones filled with dangerous chemicals! This doesn’t mean you have to go through and throw everything out and re-stock your entire home. But when you finish something, instead of replacing it with the same brand, opt for a greener choice. There are tons of online options like Thrive Market that can help you find the best products that work with the least amount of effort.
If you regularly feel sluggish, tired, and worn down from everyday life, detoxing can help invigorate your life. Detoxing encourages the built-up toxins that are deep within our cells to detach and leave our bodies. It clears up the extracellular matrix of unnecessary debris that’s responsible for making us feel worn out and exhausted. After detoxing, your cells are able to perform better, which in turn leads to a healthy body, mind, and soul.
