Alcohol in your plan
Water is critical for digestion. It prevents constipation and keeps the bowels moving by helping to process soluble fiber and fat. Staying hydrated also helps to eliminate toxins from the body, which can damage the gut by causing inflammation and irritation.
Sleep is vital for our health. It helps with stress (both mental and physical), it helps our bodies repair, digest and thrive. If we strip ourselves of that time, we will struggle. Try to get to sleep every time every night and put your screens away 20-30 minutes before.
