1 Start the morning with lemon juice. Squeeze the juice of one half lemon into a cup of hot water. It helps to cleanse and kick start the digestive system. Even before breakfast have a cup of lemon water.

2 Exercise. Try to exercise for an hour during this detox time. The idea is that you must sweat, pant and puff is good. Examples like jogging, walking uphill, hot yoga, boxing. When exercising vigorously lymph flow and circulation is increased. That means toxins is removed from the body by sweating.

5. Mind detox. Detoxing the body is good. But why not consider clearing the mind too. Meditation is a good way to clear your mind. How to meditate? Place your hand palms on your lower belly. Breath in through your nose. Slowly count to 3 or 4 counts. With every breath your tummy should rise. Breath out slowly. This will allow your tummy to drop. 15 minutes a day will be good for mind detox.
