We have often heard about body detox. We cleanse our body’s system by removing toxins and adapt to an extremely healthy diet, especially liquids and appropriate meal plans, commonly known as befit meals. However, lifestyle detox is something that not everybody pays a lot of attention to, but it is a process that is equally important. In a lifestyle detox, your mind goes through the cleanse. It is your mental system which follows detox and helps you recover from the exhaustion and internal fatigue.
The 5-step lifestyle detox is as follows:
Step 1: Make Meditation a Habit: Meditation is the best way to get rid of the stress levels and the weariness caused due to the daily hustle-bustle of life. Doing meditation regularly improves a person’s concentration and provides a peace of mind. The silence acts as a mental detox and helps in better visualization and enhances the individual’s decision-making power.
Step 2: Get Rid of Toxicity: Get rid of the people and the relationships that bring toxicity in your life. Make sure to unfollow such people online and cut ties with them in real life. Nobody is worthy enough to disturb your mental peace and anybody willing to act as a stressor in your life, don’t need to be in it at all.
Step 3: Adapt Healthy, Forgo Unhealthy: Making sure that you follow a healthy diet, and avoid junk as much as you can to ensure a successful step towards a detox lifestyle. To have a healthy lifestyle, one must have a healthy diet. Internal gratification only comes from external resolutions.
Step 4: Detox Your Habits: We are what we do, and what follows our lifestyle depends on the habits we choose. If you believe you have habits that do not align with your life goals or are harmful to you in any way, detox them. Start working towards quitting such habits to have a better lifestyle. Such patterns include smoking, excessive drinking, or being the toxicity in someone else’s life.
Step 5: Build A Routine: To detox your life, follow a routine. Set time for each and every task, and divide your entire day with appropriate intervals. Make sure that you take enough breaks, but also complete the to-do tasks. Along with that, have a good sleeping routine. Getting enough sleep refreshes your mind the next day and enables you to perform your daily tasks more efficiently and effectively.Written by Lauren Jacobsen, Nutrition Director
