"Your body is a temple." You have undoubtedly heard the mantra before, but that is because it is worth repeating. You are important and so is your body, so why treat yourself poorly? You deserve better, and a healthier body starts with hitting the big reset button with a cleanse.
Problem is, many popular cleanses are uncomfortable, impractical, and sometimes even painful. Whether it is running endlessly every morning or unhealthily fasting for days at a time, detoxing your body should not hurt, it should help.
But fear not: there are other ways to detox your body that are far from painful - and this list is happy to show them to you. From drinking more water to enjoying a nice, hot steam sauna, here are 15 great, painless ways to cleanse your body.
1. Drink More Water
It's simple, it's obvious, and it works. By drinking water constantly, you are flushing toxins out of your body. Without water, these toxins stick around for a lot longer than you'll want them to!
Cleansing the body is important, but cleansing the mind is essential. Whether it's sitting in silence for five minutes or exploring your brain for an hour, meditation allows you to process the day's events and refresh your brain.
3. Dandelion Greens
Juicing is a great way to cleanse your body, and dandelion greens are the best products to juice. Not only do they clear the kidneys, but they clear the liver as well.
It sounds complicated, but it's actually quite simple. Alternate between two minutes of hot water and 30 seconds of cold in the shower to increase your circulation and blood flow.
Tension is rarely a good thing when it comes to your body. Loosening your muscles through basic stretching every morning is the ideal way to help relax your ligaments.
6. Bone Broth
Great for conquering the common cold, drinking bone broth is a huge boost to your immune system. It provides your body with high doses of magnesium, amino acids, and (obviously) calcium.
7. Turn Off The News
"Blood leads." This is the slogan of every news station, so is it a surprise that they're always so negative and depressing? Switching off the news is a great way to avoid the world's more melancholic stories.
8. Sound Therapy
Being surrounded by constant noise desensitizes us to higher frequencies and reduces our energy levels. With sound therapy, we increase our sensitivity to noise and, thus, increase our energy.
9. Pet Therapy
Is there anything better than petting a newborn puppy? Not only does it ease fatigue and lower heart rates, but it is beyond adorable as well.
10. Steam Therapy
If you don't clear them occasionally, your sinuses can become a nightmare. However, a nice stay in a steamy shower can help to unclog your nostrils and relieve unwanted nasal pressure.
11. Cleansing Herbs
When it comes to cleansing, nothing comes close to herbal treatments. With a vast variety of herbal supplements available, there is bound to be something out there to help you boost your energy and detox your body.
Never underestimate the power of smells. Commonplace in many cultures worldwide, aromatherapy is absolutely wonderful at helping you renew your focus and feel more awake.
13. Oil Pulling
If your mouth feels unclean, oil pulling might be for you. By simply taking a swig of coconut, sesame, or sunflower oil and swishing it in your mouth for 20 minutes, you can extract any unwanted toxins from your teeth and gums.
14. Foam Rolling
Similar to stretching, foam rolling is a great way to combat tense muscles. It helps release lactid acid buildup in muscles and increase circulation throughout your body.
15. Foot Massage
A surprising hub of toxins, your feet need some love too. By massaging them, you help loosen up your joints and detox them of any nasty toxins.
