Detoxify Your Body and Mind
Detoxification is not only needed after alcohol or substance abuse. Your body and mind need to detoxify when they have been vulnerable to a lot of physical and mental stress. Your body needs to get rid of all the extra toxins that might have made their way into your system. The following are a few easy-to-follow ways to get your mind and body detoxified:
Fasting regimes have shown substantially positive results. Fasting allows the body to eliminate all the accumulated toxins that can clog your digestive system and arteries and thus boost your metabolism. However, many have complained of feeling a little cranky and weak, especially those who have never fasted before. So be prepared and do not be too hard on your body. Do not plan on fasting on an important day, or you might be too distracted to focus on either the day’s event or your regimen.
Detoxification also means clearing your mind of anything and everything that might be stressing it out. It does not necessarily mean ignoring your problems totally but simply on giving your mind the “me time” it deserves. Some might tell you walking aimlessly will do it, while others suggest meditation and others would recommend gazing into the ocean on a quiet day. All of these do work, but not for everyone. If meditation or walking does not do it for you, do not do it simply because someone claimed they work. Do whatever puts your mind at peace but try not to make it a bar or nightclub or listening to heavy metal through the night, because that will only be distracting your mind rather than letting it rest. Hitting the spa for a long massage would do wonders for your mind and your body.
Walk, run, jump, swim, do anything that keeps you moving and sweating. Sweating will get rid of the toxins and will improve the blood circulation, which will invariably detoxify your body and mind.
