Finding Balance after the Holidays
For many of us, the holiday season can be a double-edged sword. Unless you're a small child, the joys of bright lights, shimmering packages, and time with family and friends is often coupled with what I like to call "too muchness" -
- too much stress
- too much food, especially flour and sugar
- too much alcohol
- and not enough sleep. This combination leaves us feeling exhausted and in need of a vacation. Our feelings are spot on. Our body is physically exhausted from the extra activity, stress, and calories of this festive time. It needs a break; it needs a vacation.
Nutritional cleanses are especially useful this time of year because they provide an opportunity for the body to take a break. Cleansing the body is a two-fold process of removing the elements that overwhelm the system while creating an environment that supports optimum detoxification.
The Patient Guide to Holiday Recovery
highlights five functional strategies to re-balance the body.
These strategies center around
boosting nutritional content,
reducing toxic load,
and supporting the body's natural detoxification processes.
5 Functional Strategies to Re-Balance the Body:
- Clean "up" your plate - The hallmark of any detoxification effort is choosing only those foods that support cleansing. Removing foods that are harmful allows the body to focus on reducing toxicity.
- Fast for greater results - Fasting increases the body's detoxification potential by reducing, even removing, the digestive burden while we sleep. Time, energy, and resources are made available to cleanse the body.
- Break a sweat - Exercise is important for many reasons. In the context of detoxification, exercise aids the release of toxins through our skin as we sweat.
- Chill out - This new year, give yourself the gift of time and dedication to care for your body, mind, and spirit. Commit to carving out space each day for activities that rejuvenate you.
- Catch some Zzzzzs -Adequate and restful sleep is crucial, especially during a detox period. The body cleanses, repairs, and regenerates during sleep.
