Detoxing after Christmas

While Christmas is a wonderful time to reconnect with family and friends, all of the traditions we indulge in can have negative effects on our bodies. It's great to gather round and watch family films on TV, but then we're missing out on vital daily exercise. And all that champagne drunk over the festive period and especially on New Year's Eve can be taxing for your liver.
But the strain on your body can be eased in January by eating and drinking the right things, getting some exercise, and throwing in a massage as well.

Drinks to Detox
Even if you don't want to incorporate a full change of diet, there a few ways to ensure you replenish your body's energy. Drinking smoothies can be a great way to get extra nutrients and an energy boost without changing any of your other eating habits.
If you want to give your body a real boost, then there are detox smoothies out there that incorporate vegetables and superfoods as well as fruit. Or, if you fancy making your own, there are plenty of recipes out there on the internet.

Eating the Right Foods
Many of us will have been snacking on chocolates or other treats over Christmas. If you find yourself still getting hungry between meals, try one of the following snacks which should fill you up without piling on the calories:
  • Slices of dried apple
  • A handful of nuts
  • Popcorn instead of crisps
  • Hard-boiled eggs
  • Celery and cucumber sticks with low-fat hummus
And if you still find yourself craving chocolate, why not grab some dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate which has less sugar and added antioxidants?

Get Moving!
If you don't already have an exercise routine, you could start with a few gentle walks, increasing the time and distance over the course of January and February. Even just getting off the bus a stop earlier and walking that final bit is going to be of benefit to your body.
If it's too cold to venture outside or if you fancy something gentler, then yoga or pilates classes could be just what you're looking for.

Massage and "Me Time"

Finally, don't forget that "me time" is just as important to your health as exercise and diets. A Roman Beauty massage will help move toxins from your muscles into your lymph nodes where they can be broken down. Massage also releases endorphins, the "feel-good" chemicals, which can induce a sense of wellbeing and promote relaxation.
