Most of us like to keep ourselves clean only on the outside, without realizing the fact that the inside of our body needs cleaning as much as our teeth, hair, and hands do.
The best part is that we do not need money to do it. Our lymph system requires long walks and sunsets which can effectively clean it of harmful toxins and waste.
But, fist, let take a look at our lymphatic system!
The Lymphatic System
The lymphatic system is a network of organs and tissues that help eliminate the toxins and waste. The lymphatic system is responsible for transporting lymph through your body using the bloodstream.
Cleaning the system is essential if you want to maintain its proper function. You will not need some detox methods, acute massages, compound exercises or other therapies that can be quite expensive.
All you need is 20-30 minutes of vigorous walking!
The Effects of Walking
Circulation is extremely important for the lymphatic system. Every system in our body relies on something else. For instance, our circulatory system relies on the heart to provide blood for our body and keep pumping.
So, our lymphatic system relies on body movements. A vigorous ½ an hour walk is what our lymphatic system needs. Besides the walk itself, the environment you walk is equally important.
Fresh & Clean Air Benefits
The increase of serotonin occurs as a result of chemical reactions in our body usually caused by negative ions in beach and mountain air.
Negative ions help in increasing the levels of oxygen in the brain which in turn boosts the awareness and focus.
Moreover, it lowers doziness and increases the mental energy, thus reducing stress and depression levels, and boosting energy levels.
So, whenever you have the opportunity, go for a long walk in the mountain or at the beach.
A vigorous walk allows the legs to supply the lymphatic system with the pumping action it requires. It is very important to move the upper body while walking. Try to move your arms as much as your move the legs.
The bad news is that the sedentary lifestyle that many of us have, do not allow us to perform core activities our body needs in order to maintain a good shape.
What I’m trying to say is that it is very important to start this 30 minutes exercise. Make sure to include this simple exercise in your daily routine. It will help not only with your lymphatic system, but also with your entire body!
