3 Simple Steps to Spring Clean Your Body

It is finally spring, my friends!

Spring is my favorite time of year because with it comes life. Everywhere I look I see flowers budding, vegetable starters peeking out from the garden beds, birds singing, and people coming out from hibernation to enjoy the warmer weather and longer days. Ah, spring. What’s not to love?

With winter over, it is time to do one of my favorite springtime activities. That’s right, spring cleaning, baby! And while I love deep cleaning my house – seriously, it’s one of my favorite hobbies – today I’m writing about taking spring cleaning to a whole new level. That is, moving the focus from our homes and to our bodies.

How am I going to spring clean my body this year? Three simple steps: 

One: Get active.

Other than daily yoga, the winter months are largely a time of inactivity for me. It’s hard to feel motivated to get outside when the days are short, cloudy, and rainy. But now that it’s spring, I can begin spring cleaning my body by getting active. Better yet, I can do it while cleaning up my yard. Over the past few weeks I have set aside at least one hour each day to get outside and work on the yard. I’m moving mulch, pulling weeds, laying fresh my dirt on garden beds, and cleaning up the debris from the winter. This is the most satisfying way to get active as it wakes up my body while literally cleaning up the world around me.

Two: Eat clean.

Something about the hibernation and short rainy days of winter make healthy eating very difficult for me. I spend a lot of the winter months eating pasta, bread, and every other glutinous food you can imagine. The next step to spring cleaning my body is getting back to my clean eating roots, eliminating the foods that don’t agree with me and filling up on fruits, vegetables, and heart-healthy super foods. This way of eating primes my body for step three.

Three: Cleanse it.

To get a really deep spring clean on my body, I’m cleansing with Renew Life3-Day Cleanse Total-Body Reset*. This is an advanced herbal formula that detoxifies the body by working with one’s natural metabolism to clean out waste and toxins.* Renew Life 3-Day Cleanse Total-Body Reset* reduces bloating, relieves occasional constipation, and alleviates water retention.* Combine this with a healthy diet and plenty of water, and this two-part cleanse will help you feel like yourself again in just 3 days!*
