“Often we see detox as a solitary pursuit, something we have to muscle up for and go it alone. But the truth is that it will be easier and healthier if you find a way to integrate your friends and family into the experience.”
I feel safe in saying that all across the globe people’s stress level is probably on extra high. Everything is at a complete standstill, jobs, finances, social life, children to tend to and if school age try to teach them at home.
Even the children are stressed out, not being able to play and socialize with their friends. Pent up energy and no place to displace it.
Today when I woke up I decided that it would be the day to completely detox my mind. Let me explain, in high school I took computer class, this is way before personal computers, one of the first thing we learned about programming was this, “garbage in, garbage out”. So it is with the mind.
I have had my fill with news and the concentration of Covid-19. So I have been doing things to bring out all the toxic waste in my mind. I finished reading two books, I prefer paper, but Kindle will do, so I downloaded the book “Fahrenheit 451”. I am reading up on how a democracy can fall, remember Germany and Hitler.
My television was on, but, I found a science program that I like, “Wonders of The Solar System”, the host is Professor Brian Cox. His voice is calm and peaceful and I have begun to grasp so much about our solar system.
Later I am going to click on I Tunes and listen to Michael Buble. My daughter gave me a CD of his, his music is great and it is also very relaxing.
I realize everyone will approach the detoxification of their mind differently, Yoga, meditation, hot tea, or any other method that helps let off all the toxic garbage that has built up since this lock down.
So, dear reader, I encourage you to take some time, find some ways to let go and cleanse your mind so that you will feel renewed!
