After the traditional Christmas binge, is your waistband feeling the strain? Whether your New Year’s resolution is to get in shape, or you are just looking to shift those extra holiday pounds, here at Aquilla we have found some of the best ways to flush away those festive indulgences and kick start your 2016!
The majority of us consume more rich foods and alcohol than usual over the Christmas period and now is the perfect time to cleanse your body of those additional toxins. A great step is to start each day with a glass of warm pre-boiled, or cold bottled water, with a slice of fresh lemon. This easy trick works as a fantastic detoxifier and your body will thank you for it! You should also give yourself a break from heavy or processed foods, including red meat and products that contain wheat. Try to eat small portions often to avoid overloading your digestive system. It is best to avoid alcohol completely for the duration of your detox, which will not only trim down your waist line, but will improve sleep, concentration and give your liver a well deserved break!
Be sure to keep your skin looking fresh as well, exfoliation and dry body brushing are fantastic ways to help enhance circulation and improve appearance of dulling skin. This will give you a great boost if you’ve been neglecting your face and body recently. Why not treat yourself by detoxifying and firming your skin with a Pepper and Grapefruit Slim Effect Décleor Aroma Wrap at Aquilla. Or focus on problem areas like hips and thighs with a Cellulite Expert Detox Therapy Treatment which combines Décleor’s state-of-the-art Slim Effect Range with intensive massage to help tone and firm.
Exercise is an invaluable addition to any detox plan. Yoga is a fantastic option for both mind and body, and even as little as ten minutes in the morning and ten in the evening will help you to remain focused, relaxed and better able to deal with cravings. If you lack the motivation and knowledge to attain your fitness goals alone, then Personal Training could be the best option for you. At Aquilla Health and Fitness, our experienced trainers and therapists can help you with Personal Training, nutrition, injury rehabilitation and more. This January we are offering 10 Personal Training sessions for just £250, the perfect package to kick start your healthy New Year!
