How to detox the mind and body?
Our bodies are constantly working overtime to ensure we have taken care of our physical and emotional well-being. Your mind plays the biggest part in ensuring you’re fully charged and functioning. Taking time to regularly ‘switch off’ and make a conscious effort to let your body rest is one of the best ways to detoxify. Getting rid of the toxins in your body doesn’t always involve a dietary cleanse. You could do a digital detox, try dry body brushing, or keep a diary to write your troubles away. Too much of anything can have negative impacts on your mental and physical well-being and the word detox means to abstain from anything unhealthy. Whether it’s overthinking or overworking, it’s important to find healthy ways to detoxify.
