If you made the decision to kickstart your health and are going through a detox, chances are that your body is also going through a major change. Although an outstanding beneficial experience, a detox can also be challenging. Before a detox, your body is used to many substances, for example caffeine, that are no longer present once the toxins have been flushed out. Although you know that these changes are good for you, they can be challenging to deal with. This is why focusing on not only your health, but also exercise, during a detox is of utter importance.
During a detox program, especially if you are completing a full fast, your energy levels can become very low which might cause you to feel sluggish and make it hard to get out of bed. Often times, working out is the last thing you will feel like doing. However, it is important that you try to do something. You don’t necessarily have to push yourself, instead do what you can do as it’s better to move than to stay still. Exercise is good to maintain the resting metabolism, even if it is only a small amount of exercise, during a full fast. Once the body starts to fast, its first reaction is that the resting metabolism will slow down to use less energy. Once you start to exercise during a fast, the body will burn more calories. Therefore, for a better chance at success after your detox program and to help during this stage of body transformation and recovery, it is important to focus on the benefits of exercise.
We all know that exercise has great physical benefits including increased energy, a stronger heart, a healthier weight, improved circulation and a toned body. Exercise makes us feel good, and no matter how tired we feel before we start, once we are finished we have more energy.
While completing a detox, there are a lot of feelings and emotions that come to the surface. These are important to be dealt with. Exercise has loads of physical benefits, but it also provides psychological benefits, as well. It’s important during a detox to have both the physical and psychological benefits. Exercise can help decrease stress, anxiety and depression. It also improves mental clarity.
Exercise is also great for improving one’s mood and helping to curb mood swings. It can help increase self-confidence and improve one’s outlook on life. Although the physical and psychological benefits of exercise are important every day, they are even more so during a detox.
While participating in a detox, a person’s body goes through changes that it does not necessarily enjoy. Sticking to an exercise regime will help to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, plus it will make you feel good and more full of energy.
