As much as we don't like to admit it, Summer burnout is a thing. Hot weather, busy schedules, travel and the general hustle of getting the most we can out of every single warm weather day can lend to some longing for routine. To help you reset and start September on a health-focused track, we're sharing five things we do to start getting our health and energy back in check.
Try them for 5 days and let us know how you feel.
Ramp up your hydration: try 3 litres (12 glasses) of water every day. You'll see a big change in your skin, a reduction in inflammation & bloating, and boost in energy levels. Add cucumber & lemon for an alkalizing health boost.
Avoid salt: skip adding it to your food and opt for lower-salt options when eating out (eg. fast and processed foods are loaded with salt).
Cut-back on alcohol: get into 'Sober Sept' (zero alcohol) or go with the max 4 per week rule (that's regular size servings, total # per week).
Get into a daily greens habit: whether it's your favorite Blended green smoothie or a big salad, get into the 'big greens every day' habit. It helps keep your system regular, energy up and supports cellular health.
30-minutes of mindfulness: a data-device-free session of walking, meditation, yoga, swimming, hiking - any 30 minute session without technology and just your own thoughts. Whenever you bring awareness to what you’re directly experiencing via your senses, or to your state of mind via your thoughts and emotions, you’re being mindful.
