Quick Detox Tips Post Diwali

Detox Tips Post Diwali

1. Drink plenty of water:

Water helps in flushing out toxins from your system, so drink at least 10 glasses of water a day. Have nimboo pani with ginger and tulsi in the morning.

2. Sip some Green Tea:

It works great for detoxification and cleansing. Two cups a day, one in the morning and one in the evening, will make a lot of difference and you will feel the change too.

3. Exercise:

The festive season has come and gone, so slip into those running shoes and go for a brisk walk or run. You can start here and move on to sit-ups and other exercises to tone the body. Cycling is a good option too.

4. Avoid sugar:

Say no to sugar for a week. If you are really looking forward to detoxification, this is a must-do step. If you crave desserts, eat fruit salad or mix fresh fruits with curd or have dates or jaggery.

5. Foods to try:

Have more raw foods. Have a variety of seasonal fruits and salads daily. You can eat good food and at regular intervals. Just ensure that it’s not oily or fried. Milk, curd, pulses and daals need to be a vital part of your meals. Avoid red meat for a couple of weeks for a complete detoxification. Eat every two hours so that you don’t crave unhealthy foods.

6. Pamper yourself:

If possible, visit a spa or salon. Pampering yourself is also a sort of indulgence and if you are giving up on sinful foods, you might give your body something special instead. A nice spa treatment or massage will make you feel rejuvenated and relaxed.
