Super Easy Ways To Detox (That Don’t Involve Salad)
January. A time when everyone in the world joins a gym, starts a juice cleanse and only shops in the supermarket’s vegetable aisle.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for putting the food binges of December behind us and looking after our lovely bodies, but we think there are some much easier ways to take care of no.1.
Cherish lazy winter weekends and use them to catch up on some zzzz’s. The right amount of sleep improves not only your mind but also your health, benefiting your heart and your weight! Have we just found the best diet ever!?
Put The Kettle On
According to public health nutritionist Dr Carrie Ruxton, drinking tea is super healthy and can be better for you than H2O! “Water is essentially replacing fluid. Tea replaces fluids and contains antioxidants so it’s got two things going for it,” she told BBC News. We love nothing more than a tasty brew at PP HQ and have fallen head over heels for Teapigs’ tasty selection. From calming chamomile and soothing peppermint to gorgeous infusions like rhubarb and ginger, we can think of nothing better than a delicious cup of the good stuff on a cold January day.
Sure, you can go to a hot yoga class and break into a waterfall-type sweat, or you can watch this cute video of cats that helps with both meditation and mindfulness.
Up Your Candle Collection
We’re still completely obsessed with the Danish concept of hygge (basically making your house super-cosy) and our favourite way to get instant warm and fuzzies is to buy a lovely scented candle. Diptyque is the holy grail of fragrance, but there are plenty of cheap and cheerful brands to shop in the January sales.
Indulge In Some TLC
Every girl deserves some serious pamper time once in a while. It’s been proven that having a massage reduces stress, boosts immunity and even relieves PMS, so why not spend your Christmas money wisely – on an hour-long full body treatment.
