Exercising and eating healthier are common New Year’s resolutions. After enjoying your holiday meals, you may be thinking about starting fresh and “detoxing” the body. While you can purchase products that claim to detox the body, what you may not know is that organs like the kidneys, liver, digestive tract and even the skin already have built-in detoxing abilities working around the clock. However, there are ways you can provide some assistance naturally.

Drink water and limit caffeine intake. By remaining hydrated with water, the body is better able to maintain its salt balance and it can perform its metabolic functions with ease. Remember that vegetables and fruits are rich in water, so they provide another way to naturally remain hydrated. When you need a coffee pick me up to help you get some mental energy, stick to no more than 300 milligrams daily.

Skip the sugar and sweetener. If you can eliminate or reduce your intake of sugary drinks, treats, and snacks, you may be surprised by how much more satisfying it will be when you bite into the natural sweetness of fruit.

Exercise. Did you know the largest organ in your body is the skin? By breaking a sweat, not only are you helping your cardiovascular health, the sweat helps the body get rid of excess body salts.

Tackle stress and prioritize sleep. Let’s be honest: stress can’t be simply be eliminated. However, the way you respond to it makes a world of difference. The simple step of taking a deep breath before proceeding may seem simple but it can dramatically change the outcome. Meditation may also help tremendously. On that note, remember that at least seven hours of sleep a night will do wonders for your physical and mental health and how you respond to situations.

Consuming fiber, ditching the alcohol and processed foods, with a few adjustments you can let the body do its detoxification naturally.
