When you are having fun it’s difficult to remember to keep fitness goals in mind.That’s why holidays and festivals are a challenge when it comes to healthy eating plans.But don’t worry.You can follow a physical and emotional recovery-rejuvenation step by step plan, just like me, forgetting your system in order.
Why I do a detox?Is that your question?I have very good reasons.
I boost my immunity.I remind it to fall back to its normal pattern.I signal my brain that it’s time for work again.I also get ready for the next celebrations!All perfect reasons for kickstarting the detox game.
What do I do for recovery & rejuvenation after celebration?
I focus on planning for the next holiday even if it’s all in my mind.This helps me channel my energy positively towards looking and feeling good, even during the next celebration.
I believe our mind needs a good stimulus for us to get going.So focus on your mind.
Drink plenty of water.This is easily the simplest and quickest way to get rid of the excesses in your body.Water is needed for all your metabolic processes.So drink water.At least 4 to 6 liters depending on the weather.
All the fries sweets, salty and what not you have stuffed yourself with, needs to escape your system.For that, you need to focus.Eat plenty of seasonal fruits, veggies, and water.Diet should be low in salt and low on sugar.Avoid processed food carbonated drinks, sugar, smoking, alcohol.
No late nights.Catch up on sleep to let your body recover.Check whether your energy level is up.If not take your vitamins and probiotics.
Three water infusions I drink when detoxing :
- Lemon water: helps keep me full and boosts up my immunity.Its packed full of Vitamin C and antioxidants.
- Cucumber water: It helps prevent reflux and acidity naturally
- Ginger water: Well known as a natural immunity boosting and detox agent.
Three things I avoid :
- Talking with negative people.Negativities just make me feel worse after celebrations.
- Eating out at restaurants is a strict no after bingeing on festival food.You have to be strict.
- No skipping exercise.It’s non-negotiable!
One weird thing which helps
Gardening helps me get back into the groove.I am back after a holiday.Vizag was beautiful I will tell you about it soon.But its tough to be back to regular life.But I am grateful that I got a chance to visit such a beautiful part of India.
A great way to get rid of stress is, every once in a while, do something totally different and unexpected without any prior planning.” Franklin Gillette, The Secrets of Concentration and Mental Rejuvenation
