The Detox Recipe- Experience Mind Revitalization
The web is full of diet blogs and nutrition advice. There are countless recipes for detoxifying drinks which make use of various natural ingredients that can remove various toxins and harmful molecules from our body resulting in blood cleansing and therefore a healthy body. But only a few people understand the true value of mind detoxification apart from body detoxification.
A healthy mind reflects a healthy body. Therefore, healthy body follows a healthy mind, and a healthy mind follows healthy thoughts. Therefore, a positive mind is the prime determinant of the overall health.
But the question is to maintain a positive mind in today’s acquisitive world?
1. Adopt mindfulness
I emphasize the value of adopting a mindful approach. This approach utilizes synchronization of the surrounding environment with your interior. Concentrate of what’s happening around you and how it’s affecting your mental state. This will help you identify some negative elements around you which might be the reason for your disturbed subconscious state of mind. Identifying these negative elements will help you to modify them or remove them to achieve a positive state of mind. This is the first step towards detoxification of your mind.
2. Adopt systematic approach
An unorganized routine distracts your mind from your major responsibilities. A diverted mind gets tired more easily and frequently than a focused mind. The finest measure which you can take to organize your mind is to organize your daily schedule. This doesn’t mean to create a ‘hard and fast’ schedule with accurate timings for your various daily performances. Allow flexibility in your routine but understand the difference between flexibility and mishmash.
3. Stop being ‘jack of all trades’
You have been created to be a good human being. Therefore, adopting a robotic lifestyle is against nature and will only result in your annihilation. Perfection is merely an illusion. What’s normal for the spider is a trap for a fly. Therefore, bring an end to the "inner human comparison" which your mind creates to achieve superiority complex. Your mind will temporarily get satisfaction and feeling of dominance, but chronic stress will result in a tired and a distracted mind.
4. Yesterday is history and tomorrow is a mystery
Remember this golden rule which we were taught when we were young? Drag your mind out of regret of past and anxiety for future as both are unalterable. When a regretful moment from past strikes your mind, reassuring yourself that you have learned from the past is an excellent trick to prevent the past from conquering your mind at present. On the other hand, staying apprehensive about future will create stress and chronic stress cannot only damage your mind but is also detrimental to your body’s health.
5. Broaden and build
The world is a selfish place to live in but reacting negatively neither changes the nature of the world nor is it healthy for your mind and body. It feels unpractical to react positively in an off-putting situation as it’s against human nature. But maintaining positive thoughts will automatically create a positive exterior. Researchers have stated that the negative thoughts which your mind creates are so strong, that they dominate over all the positive options. On the other hand, positive thinking broadens your sense of possibilities and opens your mind, which then allows you to build new skills and resources that can provide value in other areas of your life.
Can you be mindful or are you going to continue to suffer with a mind full?
