4 Ways to Detox During the Holidays

‘Tis the season for treats and feasts, but there’s a healthier way that can’t be beat: detoxing.

When’s the right time for a detox? Well, if your pants are feeling tighter and your energy levels are plummeting or you’re just feeling a little down, it’s time. Especially during the holiday hustle and bustle, it’s easy for us to overindulge in peppermint mochas and extra helpings of stuffing and pie.

But there’s a silver lining: You can bounce back to feeling better without extreme measures. With our detox products and tips, the aftermath of the holiday indulgences won’t linger for long.

Don’t worry … you don’t need a crash diet or a strenuous exercise routine. Our bodies are resilient, and with a little attention they can naturally clean and detox themselves. So, here are four tips to get your body back — aka that looser waistband, more energy and a better mood.

Wellness Tip 1: Drink Warm Water With Lemon

Skip coffee and kickstart your days with warm water with lemon. This simple ritual has been thought to stimulate detoxification.

Why? Lemons are a powerhouse of health benefits, primarily due to their rich content of vitamin C and flavonoids. Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant — along with flavonoids — offers anti-inflammatory effects. The vitamin C also plays a crucial role in protecting your body’s cells from damage, plus it supports your immune system function.

Is your coffee doing all that?

Wellness Tip 2: Eat With Intention

Eating with intention involves not just what you eat but how and why. It’s about fostering a mindful connection with your food, appreciating the nourishment it provides and making conscious decisions to support your body’s health. Consider incorporating these practical ways to eat with intention.

  • Try Intermittent Fasting: When fasting, your body doesn’t have its usual access to glucose, forcing your cells to resort to other means and materials to produce energy. It’s a gentle yet effective way to jumpstart a detox. And it doesn’t have to be for long periods of time. You can fast overnight while you sleep in addition to adding a few extra hours of fasting to your day by avoiding heavy meals 2-3 hours before bedtime.
  • Do a Kitchen Cleanse: Reset your kitchen by removing unhealthy foods. Say goodbye to the Halloween candy and other processed snack foods. By keeping these tempting snacks out of the house and stocking up on healthy alternatives (such as fresh fruits or veggies), you’re set up for success in making nourishing choices.
  • Enjoy Plant-Powered Nutrition: Did you know it can be harder for your body to digest animal-sourced foods, which can lead to you feeling tired after eating? Focus on nourishing, plant-based meals to support your energy levels — and you may even improve your gut health in the process! A study, known as the American Gut Project, found the No. 1 driver of a healthy gut is the diversity of plant-based foods in your diet.
  • Cook at Home: Opt for home-cooked meals so you can control what goes into your body. Restaurant meals often contain excess sodium, fat, oil and preservatives. It makes the food taste good, but it’s not good for you. Plus, you’ll save money!

Wellness Tip 3: Move Your Body Mindfully

Physical activity is a great way to detox. Before diving into emails or social media, step outside for a walk, do some stretching or hit the gym. The twisting in yoga is also thought to help you stimulate the detox process.  

According to research, regular exercise has been shown to positively impact the lymphatic system, enhancing the circulation of lymph fluid to effectively flush out toxins.

Wellness Tip 4: Prioritize Sleep

Quality sleep is a cornerstone of detoxification because it’s your body’s time to repair and reset.

A study by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders And Stroke showed that toxins accumulate during the day and are actively removed during sleep. The research found that the brain’s cellular structure undergoes changes during sleep, enhancing fluid flow throughout the brain and promoting detoxification.
