If you’re like most people, you’ve just spent the last 2 or so months likely going through all sorts of delicious foods and drinks. Although the holidays are something we love and look forward to every year, they can often lead to feeling like we overindulged just a bit by the time the new year rolls around.
Your energy levels may be dragging, your complexion may be suffering, and let’s face it, your pants may not fit anymore. For this very reason, a lot of people decide to go on a detox once the new year begins.
If you’re feeling a little sluggish and just slightly less than fabulous, here are some of the best detox ideas for the new year.
Start a New Skincare Regime
Is your skin looking dull and lifeless? It’s not a surprise if you’ve been eating and drinking all winter with no limits imposed on yourself. Your skin is a reflection of what you put into your body; therefore, if you haven’t been taking care of yourself, your skin may be showing it.
In order to reduce any damage and make a comeback to a radiant and healthy complexion, consider starting a new skincare routine.
Applying skin care products which are derived from high-quality sources have the power to completely transform the way your skin looks and feels. You’ll start to feel the effects of your winter of indulgence reverse in no time.
Sugar is one of those things that people assume is innocent, however, eliminating it from your diet can have numerous benefits.
Besides encouraging weight loss, eliminating sugar can also make you feel less anxious and even improve your gut health.
A lot of people don’t realize how much sugar is hidden in foods they never even suspected. It’s helpful to do some research and familiarize yourself with some of the most common culprits for hidden sugars.
Take a Break From Alcohol
The holiday season is full of parties and dinners where alcohol is present. Your liver may very well be suffering from all the fun you had.
A lot of people decide to take a break from drinking to get their body back to a balanced state. Taking a break from drinking will help boost weight loss as well as other perks like improved sleep and increased focus. Try to start with a month detox and see how you feel. You may be surprised to find that you want to keep going.
Go On a Digital Detox
Consider staying off of social media for a little while. Your mind could use a detox as much as your body. Things like stressful news and constant stimulation from news feeds can start to desensitize us.
Taking a break can be a fantastic reset for the mind and body.
