It’s Time to Detox From All of the Holiday Treats
Now that the holidays are over, we look at our waistlines and wonder what happened. We are quickly reminded of all the sweet treats in our presence at our workplace. No one wants to deprive themselves of those delicious holiday goodies, but with so many tasty treats around, it’s hard not to overindulge. It’s no surprise you feel sluggish after all that holiday eating, drinking and partying.
It’s important to note that detoxing doesn’t mean starving. You have to remove the bad toxins, keep the good bacteria, and fill the freed spaces with nutrients. Start the New Year fresh by giving your liver a much deserved cleanse and detoxing the rest of your body while you’re at it. By detoxing we can help rid some of these toxins and feel rejuvenated. Our digestive system is complex, hard working and delicate at the same time so it is good to give our system a little break.
