I get so envious when I hear people saying “I’ve already lost 5lbs since New Year!” so maybe it’s finally time to put all the Christmas chocolate away and roll up those sleeves getting healthier with a January detox! It’s no secret I’ve been particularly lazy the past pair of months, and it’s one of my new year resolutions to get back to a healthier lifestyle, so lately I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of things! Want to hear about my 4 steps detox guide? Read below!
One of a bigger goal for me and my boyfriend is being able to spend an hour or more swimming together once a week, with which we could encounter some difficulties since we live a LDR, but that’s for another time! For more of a daily dose of fitness, there’s really no need to go anywhere if you can find the motivation and the time to do something at home! I already feel like Fitstar Yoga will be my new best friend for the next months – a phone app with yoga classes that, based on your preferences, proposes different classes with different difficulty levels to create a personal yoga path and hopefully make the whole journey even more enjoyable!
Last summer I wrote up an entire post about getting fit at home where I suggested lot of resources to help you with your fitness journey – I should really give it a re-read as I seem to have lost all my motivation! Find it here.
Anyone else feels like their skins has been overloaded with too much makeup, fragrances and glitters during the Holidays? And my skin is also feeling very gross just thanks to all the chocolate I ate during the Holidays (and after those), so I feel it’s time for a skin detox too! I have rounded up a few of my favourite natural skincare products and feel like my new Earth Conscious Natural Organic Deodorant* really deserves a mention: containing only natural ingredients, it feels so gentle and good for your skin and yourself, definitely one of those healthier choices I’m planning to do a bit more often in the new year! I really feel like nourishing my skin from the outside with natural organic products can do a lot of good to your inner self too, and it’s definitely a healthy good way to start 2015 at best! Other natural products I like are from Lush and Antipodes.
I’m not a huge fan of how green tea tastes by itself, but no doubts it is good for you, for your skin and for your body, not to mention the best way to detox, and definitely a healthy habit I should incorporate into my days. I’ll try the Clipper Tea Green Tea with Echinacea that was hidden in my kitchen shelf – I’ll make sure to give it a try as I should have had a lot of time ago, and if it doesn’t go well, I can always go back to my antiox green-tea-based smoothie!

Bath time will not beat the January blues, but it will definitely help and making the grayest month of the year a bit more relaxed and peaceful, I’ll tell you this! One of my favourite time of the week is my weekend’s bath time, with all the bubbles, deliciously scented bath salts, and the well-deserved post-bath pampering night, with cozy candles around the rooms and face masks that can make a world of good to my skin and mood!
How are you planning/are proceeding with your January detox? I’d love to know! x
