New year, new habits, new weight loss plans. For many of us, without fail, the first months of the year remind us that we should do something to improve our wellbeing. And, most often, that “something” is losing weight.
Here we are, plowing through winter and looking forward to any sign of spring. We still feel sluggish after the holidays and those New Year resolutions seem to have already faded in the background. Now it’s the perfect time to give our bodies a helping hand to get rid of toxins and thrive.
One of the most effective ways to complement a detox program is with a good yoga session. The physically demanding yoga poses will make you sweat, so you’ll release toxins and get rid of what your body doesn’t need. But before hoping on the mat, it’s important to know which kind of foods you should eat to get the best out of your practice.
All humans and animals alike detox on a regular basis. It is the natural daily cycle in which our body eliminates the toxins from the food we consume, and the unhealthy atmosphere we’re immersed in. Liver, kidneys, lungs, bowel and skin; they all work together to provide us with an excellent system to get rid of the things the body doesn’t need.
