Our motto is ABD—always be detoxing. While our body does have natural processes for purging daily toxins, unfortunately they aren’t able to keep up with the pace of this modern world. Our bodies and minds need a little help. Luckily, not all health practices or modes of detoxification are time-consuming. In fact, most of them can be easily squeezed into our morning routines.
These hacks aren’t meant to replace the ones in our last morning detox story, but instead, to be beneficial, simple additions, helping you to make every day your healthiest.
Terra & Co. Gentle Green Tongue Scraper
First things first, right upon waking, give your tongue a scrape—6-7 times, rinsing the tool between scrapes. You’ll be shocked at what comes off (ew) and feel fully purged of the night’s bacterial build-up. This not only helps keep breath super fresh but has also been shown to improve digestion.
