Thanksgiving Recuperation: You Got This!
The greater portion of America is still sporting a food baby from the greater portions of food consumed last Thursday—what a society we live in. But, in order to get a jump on fitting into that fabulous dress you scored for practically nothing on Black Friday for New Year’s Eve, it’s time to get serious about getting back on the health wagon! You pass that Pilates studio on your way to school or work every day… and it seems like a good idea to sign up for the intro class, but you need some positive motivation to get there!
A cleanse can be just the push you need to get there!
When done correctly, cleanses are a great way to jump start the metabolism, clear the system, brighten the skin, and make for better days & nights overall. The thing to know about a cleanse, though, is they are not a quick solution for fast weight loss or the easy way to perfect health. When doing a cleanse, proper support in other areas of your life are necessary. Remember that Pilates studio you passed this morning? Sign up! Pass up the pizza in the cafeteria and the take out Chinese food tonight for bringing clean and fresh options to work or school and cooking with wholesome and organic ingredients. If you start now, your New Year’s resolution will be way easier—and you’ll be looking and feeling fantastic for your holiday parties! Cleanses also help deal with stress (an excellent virtue to have on one’s side during holiday family time), increased energy for exercise and other activities, and improves your immune system so you are less likely to get sick in the ever-changing weather.
