Embrace the new year with a daily detox: sweep out brain fog and increase your vitality.
As a new year begins, it’s the perfect time to reflect on what worked well for you last year and what you’d like to change this year.
What habits would you like to drop (or adopt)? How would you like to look and feel by the end of 2023?
Not everyone’s up for writing formal goals and resolutions. But if health and wellness are top of your list in 2023, we have some ideas for living clean and feeling your best—the simple, natural way!
Detoxing is not just about releasing unwanted body toxins. It also includes a mental clean-up for a clear, healthy mind and less overall stress.
You can do two simple things daily (and nightly) that perfectly complement each other for an instant healthy-living upgrade.
Exercise + Clean Sleep
Incorporating exercise and clean sleep into your daily routine helps to naturally detox your body and positively impact your mental well-being.
Move Your Body
Exercise is a natural stress reliever and helps improve your mood and overall mental health. It increases the production of endorphins, which are feel-good chemicals that help improve your mood and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression.
Exercise also improves sleep quality, which makes these two activities the perfect healthy pairing!
When starting up an exercise routine, try these tips:
Choose an activity that you enjoy, whether it’s walking, cycling, running, or pickleball. When you have fun, it won’t feel like work!
Put the activity on your calendar and stick to it. Start with short increments if you’re getting back into an exercise routine.
Consider hiring a personal trainer, joining a community workout class, or working out with a friend to keep you motivated and accountable.
Mix it up
If you’re bored, try new activities, and switch things up. Variety helps prevent boredom and challenges different muscle groups.
Get Clean Sleep
Enjoying a supportive, restful night’s sleep is essential for overall health and wellness, and it’s also an important part of the natural detox process.
Unfortunately, poor sleep can lead to irritability, difficulty concentrating and decreased productivity. But getting restorative sleep actually cleans your brain each night, helping to improve mood, memory, and overall mental well-being.
When setting up your sleep environment, try these clean-sleep tips:
Invest in a supportive, high-quality mattress that can be customized to ideally fit your body type and sleep style with the right level of comfort.
Sleep on bedding made of natural, breathable materials like organic cotton or bamboo that help regulate body temperature. Avoid synthetic fabrics like polyester, which can trap heat and make it harder to sleep.
Block light & noise
Keep your bedroom dark and quiet. Consider using black-out curtains or a sleep mask. And a white noise machine or earplugs can block out excess noise (or a snoring partner).
Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. This helps regulate your body’s natural sleep-wake cycle, making falling and staying asleep easier.
A daily detox routine can be simple and so effective! It’s one of the most important steps to improve your mind, body, and spirit—and feel more vital overall. No need to jump on a trendy lifestyle hack or follow a complicated diet.
