The clocks have leapt forward and summer is on the horizon. Spring cleaning is the ideal time to make some changes that will improve the quality of your life with a simple detox. Warm weather, pool parties, and vacations combine and make relaxation a priority. Start your summer shape-up now, with these three detox tips to ensure you’ll enjoy a summer of rest and relaxation.
1. Ditch the diet, focus on nutrition: Diets tend to induce anxiety, and prevent people from enjoying food — one of the simple pleasures of life. Focusing on nutrition (and the ample supply of fresh vegetables from the spring harvest) will reduce stress and your waistline!
2. Indulge your senses. De-stress and de-clutter by adding a few simple tweaks to your routine. Focusing on the senses (sight, smell, taste, sound, and touch) will amplify a detox plan and improve your quality of life. Upgrade your sheets and pillows for a better night’s sleep. Add a lavender linen spray to incorporate the benefits of aromatherapy to your nightly routine. Stop multitasking while you eat. Ignore the phone, put the newspaper down, and focus the smell, texture, and taste of your food. You’ll find that focusing on the meal will lead to healthier eating habits and a happier you!
3. Prioritize a brighter smile, fresher breath and resolving to kick bleeding gums to the curb with Perio Protect®. One of the most common yet least diagnosed sources of chronic infection is untreated inflammation in your gums. Thanks to the Perio Protect® system, not only can you dissolve away infectious bacteria and tenacious tartar, but because it uses a mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide to affect these critters, it also whitens your smile as a much-appreciated side benefit! If you are tired of always seeing blood in the sink when you floss and/or you want a whiter, more confident smile, consider the Perio Protect® system as your solution for both issues! At only 15-30 minutes per day, you can be literally minutes away from healthier gums and a healthier you!
