It’s that time of the year again! The heat is killing us, one day at a time. And we know how hard it is to show up at work early in the morning during the summer. It’s sticky, hot and super humid. It’s time to stay hydrated and start a detox from the unhealthy lifestyle we’ve all been leading lately. Here are a few ways to kick-start your detox. Let’s get right to it.

1. Drink A Lot Of Water

Staying hydrated is key during the summer. Since it’s so hot and the body gets dehydrated due to all that sweating, it’s important to keep drinking a lot of water.

2. Drink Green Tea

Replace your coffee with green tea. That doesn’t mean you should drink too much tea, but one cup in the morning will help you keep detox the body.

3. Meditate Or Exercise

Meditation is a great way to mentally detox. And exercising will help you sweat out all those toxins in the body. But make sure to hydrate yourself at this time.

4. Eat Your Greens

Eating your vegetables and fruits will help your body stay cool and hydrated. Fruits contain a ton of antioxidants and fibres that help the body detoxify.

5. Cut Down On Sugar

Excess intake of sugar is harmful to the body. Instead, substitute it with honey or jaggery.

6. Cut Down Your Meat In-Take

Some meats could be heaty for the body. And in the summer, it’s best to avoid them and switch to vegetables instead.

7. Get Enough Sleep

Sleep is very important in any weather. The average human body needs at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep. Hence, when you’re planning a detox, make sure you get enough sleep during that time.

8. Avoid Alcohol

Alcohol is the toxin that you need to get rid of from your body. So make sure you completely give it up during your detox.

9. Avoid White Bread

White bread is made of white flour that is harder for the system to digest. Hence, switch to other flours like almond or quinoa flour.

10. Keep Stress At Bay

Stress affects your immunity. And that is toxic to your body. Try to surround yourself with happy and positive people.

It’s time to give up all those vices and opt for a healthier lifestyle this summer. Give your body a break with a detox and tell us your experiences in the comments below.
