Are you tired and weak? Here are eight simple ways by which you could detox your body:

1. Begin the day with a glass of water

Drinking water

Drink a large glass of lukewarm water mixed with lemon juice. It helps to re-hydrate the body and improves digestion. It also helps you flush out toxic wastes from your system. In addition to this, consume at least eight glasses of water every day even if you are not thirsty.

2. Control you sugar intake

Consuming a lot of sugar demands your body to produce more insulin, causing strain on the pancreas, thereby resulting in diabetes, obesity and even cancer. Keep a tab on the amount of sugar that you consume.

3. Start exercising now!

Exercise

Regular exercise can increase metabolism. It improves your blood and lymph circulation. Studies point out that people who regularly exercise have less toxins in their body. Brisk walking, cycling, skipping, outdoor games or even swimming can help you stay fit.

4. Consume seasonal fruits and green vegetables

Fruits and vegetables

Add a lot of vegetables and fruits to your diet. Eat plenty of fiber-rich food such as brown rice, spinach, split-peas, lentils, broccoli, avocados, pears, oats etc. Consume various fruit juices as an alternative to fried snacks and cool drinks.

5. Drink green tea

Green Tea

Instead of consuming coffee that has caffeine in it, switch to herbal combinations of green tea. The caffeine in tea is less harmful than coffee.

6. Ex-foliate the face and body

Face pack

Regular massage with coconut oil, or coconut milk can polish your skin. Ex-foliate your skin by using a good quality scrub to remove dead cells from your body and face.

Try sweating through a sauna so that pores in your body open up. Perspiration is a great way to cleanse your skin.

7. Detox your mind

Listen to music

Along with cleansing the body, your mind needs purification too. Spend some time meditating every day. Take a break, enjoy a walk in the park or go trekking. Try pursuing hobbies such as listening to music, gardening or cooking, so that you are relaxed.

8. Enjoy detox drinks

Detox drinks can cleanse your system. Ginger lemon tea is a great detox drink. This magical drink can be prepared by mixing lemon juice, ginger essence, green tea and honey in lukewarm water. Gooseberries, cucumber and lemon can also be used to prepare detox drinks.
