Cleansing your mind




Any negative emotion you experience, such as anger, bitterness, stress, resentment or frustration, overloads your body with harmful chemicals. So while detoxifying, make a special effort to:

  • Take deep breaths and long pauses rather than losing your temper.
  • Engage in positive self-talk, e.g. “I don’t need to feel embarrassed getting that report in one day late because I am extremely good at my job.”
  • Get out of bed half an hour earlier so you don’t have to rush in the morning.
  • Write down an affirmation such as “I love and approve of myself” every night before you go to sleep.
  • Find a quiet spot and meditate once a day for at least 15 minutes. Engage in visualisation of nice calming scenes and places.
