5 WAYS TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE

WEEKEND DETOX

THE WEEKEND IS A GREAT TIME TO UNWIND & DETOX!

Here are 5 ways you can detoxify your life a little {and we’re not talking about
juicing or fasting}:


1. TECHNOLOGY DETOX. Technology is everywhere. With all of our iPads, iPods, and iPhones, everyone is expected to be accessible at at all times. Overload alert!On the days you can afford to go M.I.A, try to shut it all down. Shut off your phone, your computer, and your television and pick up a REAL book. {You’ll sleep like a baby on those nights}. The over stimulation of lights, sounds, and instant gratification has switched our operating speeds on high and  unless you shut that switch off, HIGH SPEED IS YOUR FOREVER SPEED.Get into nature, go for a walk, make a mind-body-spirit connection, spend an afternoon playing with Lego with your kids, do anything your great-grandma would do for fun.

2. CLEAN OUT YOUR JUNK. We all have it: a junk drawer, a messy closet, a disorganised cabinet, etc. My friends, it is time to clean it out. Not only is this detox freeing of mind, it is freeing of SPACE!! Think of how much more functional your life will be once you tackle whatever mess may just be staring you in the face.This goes for email space as well. Unsubscribe! How much junk are you getting in your inbox everyday? If you’re in a good place organisationally, great! Still, take a look around your house to see where you can free up some space.

3. TAKE A BREAK FROM THE CITY. This may be impossible for some of you for long lengths of time, but a weekend will do just as well. Get back to someplace where the air is fresh, the people say please and thank you, and you can walk as slowly as you want. You don’t have to retreat to complete wilderness, but take a break from busyness for as long as you can. If you commute to the city daily for work, see about the possibility of working from home even just a Monday and Tuesday or how about TAKE A COUPLE OF DAYS TO YOURSELF! Take a day for some self care and an extra dose of love for your mind body spirit.

4. CUT TIES WITH ENERGY VAMPIRES. Quick, who came to your mind when you read the words energy vampires? That’s the person you need to remove yourself from. You know who these people are: they’re constantly taking from your friendship and are rarely replacing. Evaluate all of the one on one time you dish out and establish if any leave you feeling drained rather than rejuvenated; if this is the case, something’s got to change.Friendship should never be hard work. Honesty and openness can sometimes come at transformational times in friendship, but energy vampires aren’t your friends. Energy vampires only want to ask you to borrow money, drive them home, pick them up, or give them advice without so much as asking how your day was.

5. DO THE TWIST. The yoga twist. Yoga poses can stretch us, invigorate us, and humble us. Did you also know they can detox us? Twisting yoga poses squeeze your internal organs {your liver, kidneys, stomach, pancreas and spleen for instance} and help the flow of oxygenated blood. Twisting also eliminates toxins and waste and can promote digestive comfort.
