Our lives are a dynamic combination of the habits we practice, the thoughts we nourish, and the food and water we put into our bodies. Because our well-being is a delicate interconnection of various factors, making a positive change in one place can help us make positive changes in other areas of our lives as well. There are many small steps we can make to improve our overall that make a big difference.

This world is full of toxins: in our food, in our environment, and in our water. But that's not the only kind. There are also emotional toxins. These toxins work together to create Imbalances in our body that that can lead to a weakened immune system, excessive stress and poor sleep.

So what can we do to rid our bodies of toxins? Follow these 4 simple steps below, and you will begin to see a huge difference in your overall health.

Get Active and Sweat it Out

Getting a good sweat on is one of the fastest and most effective ways to cleanse your system. Movement is extremely powerful in activating every element of your body and allows the release of toxic buildup. Sweat is the body’s way of eliminating things that are harmful, which helps to purify the cells, blood, and organs. Physical activity also releases emotional tension and stress. It’s one of the best things that we can do for our brains and mental health.

Because every individual is different and unique, the activity of choice is different for everyone. It doesn't matter whether it’s joining a sports team, going for an evening jog, trying a new exercise class, or working out with a friend. Picking the exercise that's right for you will allow fitness to become a more natural and enjoyable part of your life. Staying committed to an activity is the most important part, so you have to enjoy it!

Eat Your Daily Serving of Fiber

Eating fiber is one of the simplest ways to detox. Fiber binds to toxins and escorts them out of the body which promotes weight loss, improves bowel movements, and lowers cholesterol.

A diet high in meat, cheese and eggs is rich in protein but low in fiber, which can lead to a build up of toxicity in our bodies. So try and aim for foods with fiber from natural sources like leafy greens, flax seeds, whole grains, fruits, legumes, and nuts. Eating any of these foods raw is especially good, as the nutrients are still completely intact and have not been altered by heat or processing.

Satisfy Your Thirst

Ample hydration enables our bodies to eliminate waste effectively, contributing to flawless skin, enabling us think clearly, and ridding the body of anything it doesn’t need. It also helps us to make healthy food choices and supports our hunger and satiety levels, allowing us to focus on nourishing our bodies with whole and pure foods. Drinking a sufficient amount of water enables your organs to work at their highest capacity; which keeps your body running like a well-oiled machine.

Did you know our body needs half it’s weight in ounces of water each day? That's a lot! No wonder why most Americans are chronically dehydrated. Because our bodies are made up of about 70% water, wouldn't you water to choose the most pure water to hydrate with? Well it just so happens that Penta is the purest bottled water there is. And after all, we are spending all this time taking toxins out of our body…why would we want to put them back in?

Do a Mental Detox

Life is stressful and challenging, so cultivating a strong mindset is the key to a healthy life. There are lots of things we incorporate into our daily lives that support a clear and healthy mental state. Try one or several of the following practices to clear your head and support a positive state of mind, no matter what life throws your way.

  • Yoga – Yoga is special in the way that it recalibrates how we deal with stress. Yoga requires us to hold challenging positions, while asking us to calm our minds, despite how uncomfortable it may be. This allows us to release mental toxins like emotional stress.
  • Meditation – Whether it’s for two minutes or two hours, meditation has extreme benefits. One key element of proper meditation is controlled breathing which allows us to calm our body and mind. Meditating also connects us with our subconscious and aligns us with our spirit. Any meditation effort helps us make progress, even if it feels uncomfortable and futile. A simple ten-minute meditation can help you overcome stress and find peace and balance. Start small, and go from there.
  • Writing – Another form of positive self-reflection is writing. Whether it’s keeping a journal or simply a list of things on your mind, writing is an excellent way to flush out anything that clouds our perception. Writing can help release negative thoughts that can hold us back from the joy and abundance of life. Once we release these negative thoughts we can re-focus on the positive ones. 

Choose one of the above options that appeals to you, and start there. Before you know it, these new habits will feel like a natural part of your routine. Once you make the decision to purify your body and mind, you will be able to fully embrace a pure lifestyle today, and for the rest of your life.

Live pure, drink Penta.
