Simple Tips to Spring Clean Your Health
Now that the days are longer and the weather is nicer, it is time for spring cleaning. We are not just talking about dusting off cobwebs and couch cushions, but spring cleaning your health too. Here are four simple ways that you can improve your quality of life this spring.
- Drink water. Everyone has heard the advice, “Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day.” But did you know that water makes up approximately 60 percent of your body weight. Every system in your body depends on water. So, this spring, drink 8-10 glasses of water a day, plus replace soda, juices, and coffee for more water. After your chiropractic adjustment, it is important to drink lots of water to stay hydrated and help your body with its healing process.
- Take in fresh air. Make sure you get outside and take advantage of the beautiful weather. Even if it is just for 30 minutes during your lunch break – do it!
- Try a new workout. Spring represents new things, so why not try a new workout too. There’s no better way to flush your body of built-up toxins than by sweating it out! Exercise helps increase your energy and reduce fatigue.
- Add color to your diet. Spring is the perfect time to add more vegetables and fruit to your diet. Your body will like you for the extra nutrition and you will feel the extra energy boost throughout your day.
