10 tips for finding body-mind balance

Between family lunches and dinners in company, the Christmas period is certainly a period of excesses which leads our body to suffer from imbalances, stress and heaviness . This is why it is important, from time to time and especially after intense periods like the one we have just had, to take care of our body and try to rebalance it.

Detox diets and activities are short-term changes in daily habits that are intended to remove excess toxins in the body . But what exactly are toxins? In particular, these are chemical products that are present almost everywhere. Car exhaust, passive smoking, flame retardants, plastic packaging, heavy metals, pesticides, hormones from meat and dairy products and more generally by-products present in food, which are harmful to health. Unless we're holed up living in a virgin forest, coming into contact with some not-so-healthy chemicals is pretty much par for the course. But don't panic.

Our body is wise and knows how to detoxify itself . However, certain chemicals or a higher toxic load can make it difficult for the body to eliminate toxins efficiently.

This is why it is important to adopt solutions and changes that aim to improve circulation, optimize the immune system, heal the skin and increase the energy available to us . So we've come up with some advice.


1. Water first of all

Drinking more water is certainly the first step towards a healthier and more balanced diet . Our body is in fact made up of 70% water and needs around 6-8 glasses a day to stay hydrated and help flush out toxins. Adding a squeeze of lemon a day is key for an extra boost of cleansing.

2. Organic is better

Eating organic foods is another useful habit for minimizing the intake of toxic substances . Organic foods provide pure nutrients so the liver can cleanse itself. Organic fruits and vegetables also contain higher amounts of vitamin A, vitamin C and sulfur, which help boost the body's cleansing effects, among other things.

3. Eat naturally

Avoiding processed foods can be a great way to help our bodies stay fit . For example, reducing dairy, meat and sugary foods by replacing them with lots of fruit and vegetables can be simple and the benefits can be immediate.

4. Choose the movement

Daily exercise is perhaps the best ally for good circulation . Sweat releases toxins, increasing the heart rate and therefore our body's ability to burn excess substances. Exercise promotes detoxification and strengthens our body's immune systems. As we exercise, blood circulates faster, providing nutrients to organs and muscles.

5. Decrease caffeine

Reducing caffeine-containing drinks is useful as it increases our body's ability to hydrate . How to do? Simple, just change your habits and choose, for example, a cup of green tea which provides important antioxidants that the body needs, but in a natural way.

6. Eliminate alcohol, tobacco and processed foods

Kicking bad habits is always difficult but it helps encourage a healthier lifestyle . In fact, over time, bad habits can turn into toxins that the body can no longer process. And in this way our body's ability to purify itself naturally decreases.

7. Fiber helps

A simple but highly effective step in improving our health is eating more fiber. Cereals, wholemeal bread, wholemeal pasta, fresh fruit and vegetables help move food through the digestive system, as well as providing high amounts of energy. Not only is fiber part of a healthy diet that helps you lose weight, but it's also a natural way to cleanse your body .

8. Smoothies and fruit juices

Fruits and vegetables are delicious in smoothies, smoothies and juices. Drinking these wellness concentrates helps consume more alkalizing minerals that naturally detoxify our body .

9. Choose non-toxic products

Chemicals and toxins are not only found in food but are present almost everywhere. Cosmetics, cleaning products and even clothing are sources of toxins. It is therefore important to carefully choose non-toxic alternatives . CasaGIN garments, for example, are produced with natural, hypoallergenic and antibacterial materials .

10. Sleeping helps

Sleeping is a great way to improve blood circulation and the flow of cerebrospinal fluid to the brain . Our body cleanses itself while we sleep, processes toxins and replenishes energy. All of this is essential for effective detoxification.

Detox habits have a large number of benefits: they bring changes not only physically, but also mentally by increasing concentration and mental clarity . Food fuels us and gives us the energy we need to get through the day. Choosing it carefully can make the difference. But it is not the only system for a healthy organism. From what we wear, to how we move, to how much we sleep, to everything we buy can make a big difference to the way we live and the level of well-being of our body and mind . Following a diet to detoxify after the holidays, together with some other healthy habits, allows you to get back into shape and eliminate the residues of lunches and dinners on our body. Choosing well is choosing healthy .
