The all-season spring clean checklist for how to cleanse your body

The future of the health and wellness industry centers around prevention, not treatment. From self-care to digital health, personalized supplements to online support communities, there’s already a consensus that the road to a healthier way of living starts on the inside.

The current pandemic has really propelled the notion of health forward, with more time to focus on self-care in the home. If you are looking to spring clean your health after a long year of inner stress, there’s never been a better time. With the global wellness market accounting for $1.5 trillion, the support options are vast for health fanatics, conscious foodies or anyone looking to turn a corner with healthy eating habits. And now, when you’re also in a mood to spring clean your house, why not give your body a deep-cleanse too?

No matter what the season, you should always look to adopt new health habits

Health and wellness routines aren’t a set-and-forget formula. They are deeply personal and change as schedules, health goals and energy do. A workout regime that worked in winter might not jive in summer. Your tastebuds can change from season-to-season, too. It’s worthwhile to return to wellness routines every three months, with the turn of the seasons. Here are a few health reflection points.

1. How to enjoy clean eating with organic & in-season food

Summertime means fruits like mangoes, melons and strawberries are in season, while winter sees fruits like oranges, bananas and pears in abundance. To build healthy eating habits, aim to sync your diet with foods that are available in your region. This shortens the window from farm to plate, ensuring the freshest, most nutrient-dense produce. Opt for organic foods, ethically sourced animal products and wholefoods. Get inspired with different Mediterranean-style recipes using in-season foods.

2. Staying hydrated

Aim to drink approximately three liters of water per day. Not just part of spring cleaning your health, this goes for every day, for every season. Use a water bottle so it’s easy to track how much water you’ve consumed.

3. Exercise and movement

In the warmer months, enjoy exercising outdoors. Take a walk with your furry friend, a hike with friends, or a bike ride to soak in the sun (and all-important vitamin D source). If the months are cooler, opt for exercises you can do indoors. Bikram Yoga is a great winter warmer. If you don’t feel like venturing outside, there are plenty of great online workout routines you can do in the comfort of your own home. Make sure you revisit your workout routines as the seasons change.

4. Topping up on vitamin D

Getting outside can also boost vitamin D levels to complement a spring detox cleanse. The sun is a natural source of vitamin D, but your lifestyle, age, sunscreen routine, skin type and even where you live may compromise your body’s ability to produce vitamin D from the sun. Your food will also top up your vitamin D levels, but the nutritional content of our modern diet might not have enough. Get your levels checked on a regular basis to determine if you need to compensate with supplements during periods of the year.

5. Sleep habits

More and more, people are learning about the importance of good sleep. It’s a part of health that needs to be prioritized and sleep trackers help to understand personal data.

‘Clean up’ a sleep routine by treating it as the sacred time it is. Avoid screens in or near to bed, let dinner digest for at least three hours, say no to caffeine late in the afternoon, and minimize all stressors once it’s dark. Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day. Interpret sleep data and make positive adjustments for a better night’s rest. And, most importantly, get seven to nine hours each night.

6. Regular health check-ups

You should look to book an annual health appointment. View this as more of a chance to build a relationship with a primary care physician and dentist, rather than appointments to fear or put off.

Spring clean your health

Out with the old, in with the new. Just like each year we turn over the mattresses, clean out the pantry and replace those trainers with a fresh pair. Make sure you also leverage to clear out all unhealthy habits from your diet and lifestyle. Modern food is usually high in sugar, low in fibers and lacking key nutrients which might compromise the cell functions in our bodies, making it difficult for us to absorb nutrients and flush out waste products. This is why we all might need to compensate with supplements in order to spark that real change deep inside, in our cells, gut and immune system.
