A juice cleanse puts the body through a lot, so step into your cleanse well-prepared so you and your body can get the most out of it!

If you are thinking about doing a juice cleanse, then there are a few things you will want to consider to make sure it’s successful. No matter what your goals are when you participate in a cleanse, whether it’s two days, three days, or more, the body and mind go through a lot, and you owe it to yourself to step into your cleanse with these ten tips.

1) Prepare, prepare, prepare!

Yes, believe it or not, you do need to prepare to do a cleanse. Here is how!

Ensure you have herbal teas on hand.

Scale back social engagements, so you are less likely to be tempted.

Let your friends and family know you are going to do a cleanse so you can have added support; it really helps.

Have a journal on hand to capture your cleansing journey to allow you to reflect back later to see the progress you've made.

If you are on medication, pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any health issues, you should check in with your healthcare practitioner before beginning a cleanse.

2) Cut back on caffeine, alcohol, and smoking

Cutting back on caffeine, alcohol, and smoking is essential to a good cleanse. Why put toxins back into your body as you are trying to clean them out? You should also start eliminating bad foods from your diet three days before you start your cleanse. If you think cutting out the bad-for-you foods is hard, it will be even harder during your cleanse if you don’t do it beforehand.

3) Drink lots of water

Drinking pure green tea and other organic, herbal teas are also okay. When you cleanse, you want to rid your body of toxins. Drinking plenty of water will help your body carry that waste out of you. You can go on any number of great cleanses; however, unless you are drinking an adequate amount of water, it won't help. A really good way to get your water in is through a lemon-ginger tea. Lemons are an excellent source of Vitamin C, and ginger has high levels of antioxidants. Combined, they offer an immunity-boosting drink that is beneficial to your hair, skin, and digestion. Ginger also helps relieve nauseaas well as reduces those sugar cravings!

4) Sweat!

Our soft, supple skin is actually a major organ for eliminating toxins from our body. Sweating is the main way our body does this, so get your sweat on! The body’s mood-boosting neurotransmitter, serotonin, is released when we exercise. This makes us feel better naturally, so if you’re feeling like you are in a bit of a slump during your cleanse, boosting your exercise will certainly help. Just remember to go at your own level and do not overexert yourself. Another great way to up your sweat output is by going to a hot sauna or infrared.

5) Sleep

Become best friends with your bed and learn to love those ZZZ's! Ridding the body of toxins takes a lot of work, and the best way to maximize its performance is to ensure you get enough sleep each night. Your body does most of its repairing and restoring at night. So be sure to get at least seven hours of sleep daily.

6) Absorption

Juicing is a powerful and beneficial way to cleanse as it separates the insoluble fiber from the phytonutrients, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals that are in fruits and vegetables. Doing this will give your digestive system a much-needed rest as the good stuff from the juice goes right where it's needed within the body without expending the energy needed to digest it. Juicing is like a super shot of plant power direct to your body!

7) Vitamin D

Get a good shot of Vitamin D by spending at least fifteen minutes outside every day. Even when it’s cloudy out, the sun's rays still permeate our atmosphere, delivering much-needed Vitamin D to our bodies. Sunlight is also a fantastic way to help our bodies fight off viruses, nasty bacteria, and other unfavorable things.

8) Take your probiotics

This is a great way to flush out bad bacteria to make room for good bacteria. Good bacteria helps regulate and balance healthy organisms in your belly and digestive tract. When these super important areas are working well, your body is more apt to work more efficiently.{3GGL3SS} You can get great probiotics with Sunwarrior's vitamins and illumin8

9) Dry Brush!

What if I told you that in addition to your hair and teeth, you can also brush your skin? Dry skin brushing is an excellent way to stimulate circulation. Healthy circulation is important because, as our largest organ, our skin helps to protect our bodies from chemicals and extreme temperatures. It also helps rid our bodies of metabolic waste, and, while on a cleanse, this is what we’re aiming for.

10) Mind, body, and spirit

When these three things work in conjunction with each other, the capacity to feel good is endless. Meditating and visualization have exceptional benefits with lowering stress and anxiety, improving overall calm and keeping you focused on your goals.
