“How are you doing today?”
I’m doing well. Feeling great, thanks for asking.
8 out of 10 people will give this response but how accurate is it?
Having grown accustomed to simply responding rather than reflecting, we automatically reply with this teleprompt of positivity that doesn’t always agree with our current state or condition. No room is granted for any sort of judgement or misconceptions accounted as some sick desperate plea for attention or perhaps another pity party. Why the mask? Simply put, because no one really cares or is it due to the fact we lack the full understanding of what HEALTH consists of.
Being in good health pertains to not only your physicalities but also your intellectual, and socioemotional well being. We must be HONEST with ourselves about the things that weigh us down. Most importantly we should be proactive in obtaining the life we really desire. Certainly, we can’t live forever but we can live longer, healthier, more fulfilling lives if we STOP ignoring the preventable signs of declining health [wellness]. Prior to signs and symptoms physically appearing, our mind and emotions give warning and alerts. If we slow down, look, listen, and watch our bodies will point us in the right direction. In observing ourselves in such a holistic manner, we improve our physicalities and likewise our intellectual and socioemotional well-being. For starters, you’ll need to clean house and get some structure.
5 Simple Ways to DETOX your Life:
#1 PURSUE YOUR PASSION
Whatever ignites you, drives you. If you feel strongly about a particular cause, project, or person chances are you will feel better once involved . That single spark may lead you on a path you never would have imagined or thought possible if you hadn’t consistently pursued its course. Passion drives purpose, gives hope, and motivates your focus. Without it, you a ship without a sail.
# 2 PRIORITIZE YOUR TIME
There’s only 24 hours in a day and one of you so why waste precious time doing things that don’t stimulate your mind, body, and soul. Use a calendar or day planner to organize your day. If it’s not on the agenda, put it off for another day or time until you accomplish those things that’s most important to you. Spend more time with family, friends, and associates who share common interest and goals as yourself.
#3 RECOGNIZE & RELEASE NEGATIVITY
The most detrimental condition upon your health is suppressed emotions, particularly negative ones. Everyone has experienced physical or emotional trauma to some level or degreee in their life. Depending on the level, we may need to disengage or disconnect with certain people or environments in order to gain clarity or peace from the situation. The devastation alone may carry over residuals of doubt, fear, guilt, or shame. We should allow ourselves the right to acknowledge those feelings then release them. By creating a positive channel of constructing that negativity, we will learn what we need in order to grow from it.
Sometimes the best way to detox is to simply give. Giving cleanses the heart of greed but also of responsibility. The more treasures you own, the more time, money, and attention you’ll need in order to keep it. It may be best to let some things go.
#5 SHUT DOWN & HIBERNATE
Our brains move faster than our bodies and some seniors will tell you, it’s also the first thing to go. Having said that, we make take time to disconnect from the technoligical world and reconnect with nature. Book a nature trip for a day or a simply sleep for an extra hour two on weekends without any disruptions.
Enjoy Life & S.I.P
