This week’s Tuesday’s Tip is a 2 day detox for body, mind and soul. June is my month of health and wellness and I’m devoting the month to improve in three areas of my health – physical, mental and spiritual. I’d love you to join in as well.
I was reading recently about Detoxing your mind, body and soul. The article, written by Danielle Appl, suggested that we should
rid out minds, bodies and souls of a toxic buildup from modern-day living rather than wasting funds on ‘miracle potions and tonics’
I thought about the article and realised that we can all do with some down time to focus on ourselves and a two day ‘detox’ would be just the thing for my Health & Wellness focus in June. Taking time out from life to relax and recover.
2 day detox mind body soul
Here are my suggestions and what I will be doing for my 2 day detox. I’ve divided the detox into the three areas.
Taking a rest from technology and resisting the temptation to open the laptop or smartphone. Our minds need time to rest from the constant bombardment of social media.
Reconnecting with others
Instead of texting, catching up with friends and spending time reconnecting in person is great for my mental health and happiness.
Don’t you love the feeling of having a good declutter? I love the feeling of satisfaction when I’ve packed up things I no longer need or use and give them to someone who will use them.
I love to run and exercise regularly but sometimes our body just needs time to rest and recover. For my 2 day detox I will go for an easy walk appreciating the beauty around me on Day 1 and then do a Yoga relaxation session on Day 2.
Healthy soups and nutritional meals will be the order of the day. I won’t be starving myself but I will be making healthy meals with smaller portions. Lots of vegetables!
Taking time each morning and evening to give thanks for all that I have in my life. This is so uplifting and good for the soul.
I used to think I was hopeless at meditating until I learned that it is okay for your mind to wander. When it does you just bring it back to focus on your meditation. Just 5 minutes can make such a difference to your inner self. You feel less stressed, have more clarity and feel so relaxed.
So there is my 2 day detox for mind, body and soul. What would you add? Will you try it?
