The best #detox tip is rest - during a detox or a fast Claire Samuel

A one-day detox, or longer, allows our body to get rid of toxins. It is both a luxury and a requirement to stay healthy. Maybe you will drink vegetable soups or green juices for a quiet day at home, to help your digestive system to rest and regenerate itself. You may even want to fast on pure water or herbal teas.

The best tip during a detox is to get plenty of rest, in our bed within a dark bedroom. Moreover, I gave up fasting during the cold winter months, to avoid shocking my body. Hence, when we stop giving food to our body, it uses all its available energy to care for the places within us that need a bit of healing. All our strength is thus gathered inside our body. This can make us feel cold or a bit weak. All of this is perfectly normal. Let’s make our detox time even more special and yummy by really getting some rest, many times during the day. May we avoid physical exercise. I love yin yin yoga during my fast. It is a super gentle practice, slow and graceful, which allows the body to stretch a bit but without hardly consuming any energy.
