No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.
We're all hyper-focused on our health right now. Whether that's because of coronavirus (COVID-19) or the simple fact that swimsuit season is quickly approaching (actually, it's here), the internet is full of new health endeavors. Even without a global pandemic, as summer months come closer, there are countless individuals who are trying to better themselves. Often this comes in the form of a detox — whether an extreme "hey buy this tummy tea" kind of situation or simply a "maybe I won't eat gluten for every meal of the day" situation.
Many of us have a bad taste in our mouth when it comes to detoxes. Tummy teas and random pills? Get outta town, we all know those aren't good for us. But there are many natural, less extreme versions of a detox that can actually make us feel happier and healthier, no chemical laxatives required.
Each week, we're bringing you the best resources and influencers to give you a health boost. Here's what we're following this week regarding detoxes.
Most detoxes focus on your gut health. It's no fun to feel bloated at all hours of the day, but focusing on bettering your gut health can fix that. "Happy Gut" gives you all the information you need to find out why you feel the way you do and natural, healthy answers to help you feel better.
