Help Your Body Recover from the Festive Season

We all like to indulge a little over the festive period. Having a few glasses of bubbly and helping yourself to the cheese board and chocolates is part of the joy of the season. However, once you have been doing this for a week or more it can start to take its toll. If you are anything like us you will be starting to crave some healthier food and want to get into healthier routines.

We often talk about juice cleansing as a way to hit the reset button; to stop bad habits and get your body ready for a new healthier diet and lifestyle. Doing a juice cleanse can therefore be a great way to recover from the festive period and get your body back on track.

When you do a juice cleanse you swap your regular diet for healthy cold pressed juices. Beginners usually start with a 1 day cleanse, and then work their way up to 3 day or 5 day juice cleanses. During the time that you are cleansing you will only be putting healthy nutrients and water into your body. This gives your body a chance to use its detoxing powers to clean out your system while you feed it with the vitamins and minerals it needs.

At the end of a cleanse most people report that they feel less bloated and have better digestion, that they have more energy, and that they are sleeping more soundly. So doing a juice cleanse can alleviate many of the symptoms of Christmas and New Year overindulgence. More than that though, it gives your body a solid base to build from as you start your new healthy regime for the New Year.

 

Not just cleansing

While doing a New Year juice cleanse is a great way to hit the reset button it cannot act as a long term replacement for a healthy diet. However, cold pressed juices can also help here. A single bottle of our organic cold pressed juices contains at least the equivalent of 5 portions of fruit and vegetables. Having one bottle of our organic cold pressed juice per day is therefore an easy way to improve your diet for the New Year and help your body to maintain a healthy balance for the next 12 months. We will even deliver direct to your door so you can be reassured that our juices are super fresh.

 

Sustaining healthy habits

Lots of people want to go on a January detox, whether it is because they have overindulged at Christmas, or as part of a more general desire to turn their life around for the New Year. The process of doing a juice cleanse not only gives your body a break but also helps to focus your mind on why you want to make healthy changes. It takes will power to complete even a short cleanse and we recommend that people spend some time thinking about why they want to complete a cleanse before they start. These reasons then give you something to focus on if you get tempted to stray away from your cleanse.

While it is always a good idea to list your motivation for doing a cleanse it is a particularly good idea at the start of the New Year. You can list why you want to be healthier this year and what you are going to do to achieve your aims. If the first aim is to do a juice cleanse then that becomes an easy one to tick off the list. If eating more fruit and veg was an aim then that also becomes very easy to tick off. Starting the New Year with some positive health achievements will set you up will to reach the rest of your health goals during the year.
