We made it to springtime! Hibernation season is officially over and I’m so excited that the sun’s been shining and the birds have been chirping. This transition brings me so much joy! 

The warm weather can be such a great motivator, which is why so many of us decide to “spring clean” once this time of year rolls around. Gotta put those bursts of energy to good use! 

Now you might consider spring cleaning to look like decluttering your closets or scrubbing areas of your home that, let’s be honest, haven’t been touched in ages. And while keeping your space and surroundings fresh and organized is fantastic (especially for the mind), this isn’t the only way you can benefit from a “spring clean.” 

I love to take the opportunity of a new season to spring clean my health. Resetting your wellness routine is a great way to “spring” your health forward. 

Here are some tips to get you started…

TIP #1: Switch to non-toxic cleaning products

Make sure you keep your health in mind when cleaning your home! Too many chemicals and toxins in cleaning products can wreak serious havoc on your health. These chemicals affect your immune system, allergies, and gut microbiome. 

One of my favorite green household cleaning products is Branch Basics All Purpose Cleaning Concentrate! Not only does it work on absolutely EVERYTHING, it’s also free of harmful preservatives, GMOs, and toxins.  It is safe for the entire family, including adults, children, babies, and even pets. Plus, Branch Basics graciously gifted this community 15% off your entire purchase when you use code nikkiyeltonrd at checkout.

TIP #2: Start your day with a rejuvenating smoothie

Starting your day with a balanced smoothie this spring can help you not only combat allergies, but also clean up your digestive system! Smoothies help the body detox and are a fantastic way to get in important nutrients while giving your digestive system a much needed break.

I love this Strawberry Almond Protein Smoothie for this time of year because it’s balanced with the perfect amount of protein, fats, and carbs with vanilla protein powder, flaxseed, almond butter, and juicy in-season strawberries. This balance of macronutrients ensures your blood sugar stays stabilized and keeps you full and satisfied. Starting your day with a balanced smoothie is so energizing, healing, and hydrating for your cells and I highly recommend introducing them into your morning routine this spring!

TIP #3: Purify the air around you 

With allergy season in full swing, I highly recommend spring cleaning the air you breathe! This often goes overlooked as an important spring cleaning ritual but trust me, it’s a game changer. If you’re experiencing sneezing, wheezing, watery eyes, or fatigue, I highly suggest investing in an air purifier. Removing bacteria, viruses, pollen, mold, and dust mites from the air can boost immune function and lessen the stress load on your lungs. 

I use the Air Doctor air purifier to clear my home of any irritants, contaminants, and pollutants. It has an air quality sensor that evaluates the air in the room and automatically adjusts to the correct filtration level. It’s an awesome addition to your home to help reduce those toxins! 

TIP #4: Support your body’s natural detoxification 

If you really want to spring clean your health and detox the right way, I recommend my 7-Day Gut & Autoimmune Reset & Reboot to kickstart healing! 

A healthy reset reduces the burden on the digestive system and liver by enhancing daily detoxification and giving your body a break from eliminating unwanted chemicals, processed foods, caffeine, and sugars.

I hope these tips are helpful as you spring clean your home, your mind, and your health! It’s such an exciting time of year to reset!

"When it comes to balancing our body, healing the gut, reversing autoimmunity, and achieving optimal health—we are a lot like a car that won’t run right. In order to fix the problem once and for all instead of relying on jumper cables, we must get underneath the hood, run the diagnostics, and replace the battery so that it runs good as new."

-Nikki Yelton, RD

If you are ready to stop wasting precious time, get off the never-ending hamster wheel, and finally surrender trying to figure things out on your own—this is your moment. 

You don’t have to settle for just getting by and hoping tomorrow is a better day. We both know you are a woman who deserves better and are made for so. much. more.
