10 Ways to Deep Clean and Freshen Up Your Health and Your Life
8. Deep Clean Your Kidneys
Along with the liver, our kidneys are one of the hardest working organs in the body and are frequently one of the most neglected. More than 1 million delicate nephrons sort out toxins and expel them from the body. Your kidneys filter more than 200 liters of blood every day as well as being responsible for the pH balance of the body, your blood pressure, and for keeping your bones strong and healthy. All your kidneys ask for is to stay well hydrated. Flush your kidneys and show them some love by giving them an extra glass of water today. That’s not too much to ask, now is it?
9. Freshen Up Your Feet
Those comfy but worn out gym shoes or running shoes are probably doing you more harm than good. Shoes should be replaced about every 600 miles (if you are a runner) or every 6 months. This means that if you run an average of 50 or 60 miles each week, you should replace your shoes every 3 months. Shoe material, especially the heels, wear out with use and lose much of their cushioning effects. Treat your feet to a new pair of gym or running shoes. Your feet will thank you.
10. Deep Clean Your Bowels
OK, it’s not considered polite to talk about bowels and poop in public, but since everyone does it, let’s be honest here. Having regular bowel movements not only fulfills an important function in the body, it feels good. For your bowels to work properly you need fiber and fluids. So make a commitment to eat whole fruit and vegetables over juice, whole meal over refined grains, and remember to drink your 8 glasses of water each and every day. Probiotic supplements can also help to stimulate a lazy bowel. Don’t you feel better already, just talking about it?
Slow down, lighten up, and take some time to enjoy life every single day. Your mind and body depend on it!
