Reset Your Mind with a Mental Detox
A regular detox is recognised as an important part of restoring balance to our physical body, but rarely do we acknowledge the importance of detoxing our mind to renew our perspective. Just like the chemical build-up in the physical form, the mental body also carries baggage that obstructs our well-being. A way to measure how much mental toxicity you carry is to consider how fresh you are at the beginning of each day, with each person you meet, and when faced with challenging situations. If you are overly negative, hold grudges, take things personally, worry or feel anxious, or over react to people and situations then it’s time to clean up your act and upgrade to an empowered operating system.
How to upgrade your operating system?
To remove noxious emotional matter from the mind we have to first see the beliefs behind suffering and self-destructive behaviours. To Power Manage Yourself is to recognize the false ego that feeds misperception. With the development of mindful awareness you gain insight to discern your responses through clear eyes. And with the development of self-care strategies you are able to operate from a more positive perspective.
Unwind the mind and rest in the space between thoughts
To sustain a healthy outlook takes adopting new habits like taking time out from a busy day to unwind the mind and rest in the space between thoughts. Meditation is effective in rebooting the mind and renewing the energy so that inner calm pervades the bombardment of our day to day and promotes peace and well-being. Unclutter your mind and join some meditation classes!
