Now is the perfect time to detox at home. All the excuses you’ve had in the past are gone: there are no business dinners, happy hours, networking events, weddings. Whatever got in the way of committing to a cleanse has been #cancelled. Why not take this time to take your vibration higher with a cleanse?
A detox can help you feel refreshed, boost your energy, and reset your body for the fall. And, luckily, detoxing at home can take many different forms. Here are some easy ways you can remove toxins from your body at home.
Our HigherDOSE Infrared Sauna Blanket is the perfect way to get your blood flowing and get glowing. Our Blankets increase the body’s thermal energy and promote a temporary increase in blood flow. You’ll sweat like you’re doing some hard cardio – without all the heavy breathing.
Relax in the soothing, yet stimulating heat and let the infrared take over. You’ll feel rejuvenated and calmer as a result of this heat-based cleanse. Infrared light detoxes you seven times more than traditional sweating and pulls deeply-stored toxins from your fat cells. It's the most effective detoxify tool out there, as it pulls heavy metals, environmental pollutants, and chemicals that are otherwise trapped and hard to get out from your standard detoxes.
Bonus: our blankets leave you with a healthy glow and soothe sore muscles and joints. You’ll feel like a whole new person. It’s basically like having an in-home spa.
Detox diets have been used in Native American, Indian, and even ancient Roman culture. But, today, we’re exposed to sooo many more toxins than our ancestors. There are toxins in food, air pollution, water, household cleansers, and cosmetic products.
These are just a few examples, there are tons of detox diet options out there. Check out GOOP’s 5-Day Detox Meal Plan For January 2020 & Beyond, for instance.
A digital detox is one where you step away from those addictive digital devices: smartphones, televisions, computers, tablets, and social media sites. It’s a good way to focus on real-life, social interactions and cutting down on distractions. Research shows that the average American adult spends around 11 hours each day listening to, watching, reading, or interacting with media. How crazy is that?!
There are many health benefits to doing a digital detox: better sleep, better productivity, and healthier eating habits, just to name a few. If the thought of stepping away from social media and texting fills you with anxiety, try doing it for just an hour a day. You can build up to two hours or go a full weekend only using your phone for emergencies.
A cleanse is a great way to kick up your motivation and tap into your drive. “Maybe the best thing that can be said about cleanses is they’re a good psychological tool for helping to cut back or eliminate unhealthy components of your diet, like sugar or alcohol,” said Everyday Health. With summer winding down, now is a great time to prove to yourself how strong you are in body and willpower.
These cleanses are a great way to reset for the fall:
Consult a professional before you take on any cleanse that could negatively impact your health.
Celebrities like Miranda Kerr and Gwenyth Paltrow love dry-brushing. It’s a great way to get glowing skin while shedding toxins! To try dry-brushing, take a brush with coarse bristles and use it against the surface of your skin to promote blood flow and get rid of dry skin.
Dry brushing can leave your skin healthier and help you reduce the appearance of cellulite.“It may even stimulate lymphatic drainage, according to board-certified dermatologist Mona Gohara,” reports Allure.
Last but not least, try a mental detox. Meditation and breathwork are shown to have detoxifying effects. Apps like Headspace and Calm are beloved by users who say just adding 10 minutes of meditation a day helps them feel less anxious, stressed, and depressed.
GOOP also recommends trying a “feelings cleanse.” The occasional emotional decluttering can have an effect on your mind and body. “Think of your mind as you would your kitchen drawers. There’s your junk drawer. It’s irritatingly hectic in there. It’s hard to even shut with so many miscellaneous items accumulating. How much easier is it to cook and clean and get around when all the measuring spoons and spatulas are in their rightful place?” explains GOOP Wellness
