Feeling exhausted and overwhelmed a lot of the time seems to be the norm in today’s stressful society. Maybe you look in the mirror and see that you look tired and your skin looks dull. You’re not alone. Your body is likely suffering from the common affliction of being overworked and taking in too many toxins from your environment.

#1 Too Toxic

We’re all exposed to a certain amount of toxicity in our daily lives due to the air around us and the water we drink, but we need to be careful about limiting how much toxic material our body comes into contact with.

When toxins from the environment or the food you consume start to build up in your body, it will stop functioning at its best level, and you will notice the small differences. Overall, you will feel simply exhausted.
