It’s ok to get lost every once in a while, sometimes getting lost is how we find ourselves.
We all have those negative things in our lives and getting rid of them is a great way to help you reset. When you think of resetting your mind it’s almost like when you reset your WiFi. Your WiFi was messing up somehow and you press the reset button so that things can work smoothly again. That’s essentially what we are doing with our minds.
Get rid of any noise going on around you. You can’t focus properly if there are too many distractions going on. Get yourself into a nice quiet spot.
Get rid of any negativity going on in your life. Is that negativity someone? Take a break from them. Is that negativity social media? Delete your profiles. There are tons of things that are negative in our lives and we need to know when to get rid of them.
Sit down and make time for yourself to detox your mind. That is the most important part of a mind detox. If you don’t sit down to make the time, then when will you?
Find YOUR place. Where is it that makes you the happiest and most comfortable? Is it your bedroom to nap? Your living room to watch tv? A cafe? Library? Wherever it is, go there when you feel that you need to calm down.
These are all essentials when it comes to detoxing your mind.
Remember to love yourself first!
I have always wondered what the secrets were to learning to love yourself. What I found out was that there is NO SECRET. It is something that is learned and practiced. I know, I thought there was going to be some magic word that I could say and BOOM I’d love myself. Obviously, that’s not going to happen though.
When it comes to self love, you need to learn that it’s OK to worry about yourself and no one else. If someone asks you for a favor that you really don’t want to do, say no! You don’t have to take on more than you can handle and you certainly don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do.
When you wake up in the morning, sit down and remember what you’re grateful for. Is it your family, your dog or even your job? Remember that throughout the day. Remembering what your grateful for can make your day just a little easier.
If you are feeling too stressed, TAKE A MINUTE TO BREATHE! Always remember to take time for yourself. Stress can really effect your health. If things aren’t going your way. TAKE A DEEP BREATH!
Have you tried meditating? I’m telling you, meditation has done wonders for me. I have used apps like Calm and Headspace. Meditating has really helped me when I’m angry and stressed out. Taking time and focusing on my breathing has just helped me relax. Also check out my blog post: Why is meditation good for you? I explain all the different reasons why meditation can help you.
Another idea that you can do is exercise!! I know it sounds horrible. I HATE exercising as much as you do, but it really is a great way to fuel your energy. Plus, you’ll loose weight and tone up. Who doesn’t want to loose weight, especially since it’s the holiday season. It’ll be that much easier to love yourself when you like how you look.
So, what is the recipe for loving yourself? Remember what you’re grateful for, breathe, Meditate, exercise, and PRACTICE! Those obviously aren’t the only ways to learn to love yourself, there are tons of ways to do that.
Remember to love yourself because you are loved!
If you wouldn’t say it to a friend, don’t say it to yourself.
When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings you joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.
