Humans have ‘mastered’ efficiency where in such a technologically – connected world everyone is disconnected. And somehow the world is in need of our ancestral values and lifestyle; where living with an Amazon native tribe can prove to be more emotionally and physically pleasing, away from our concrete jungle that is paved with tar, pollution, tears, anxiety and increasing psychological disorders.
Why Emotional Detox?
Despite our quest to make our lives advanced and easier, we have created more issues for ourselves. We have introduced cancer, aids, global warming, mass destruction weapons and enormous amount of stress and past negative events to our lives to an extent where a trip to the grocery store or making it to a family dinner can be challenging.
In order to stay revived and happy in our life journey it is essential that we learn to release the stress and past negative events that we accumulate in our lives. Happiness is an inside out job. You can be happy despite your external circumstances as we are in control of our emotions and thoughts that influence our experiences. And how do we do we do this? – mindfulness through Emotional Detox.
“You will never be free until you free yourself from the prison of your own false thoughts” – Philip Arnold.
“Take control of your consistent emotions, and begin to consciously and deliberately reshape your daily experience of life” – Anthony Robbins
Steps to Daily Emotional Detox
- Become an early riser
Waking up at least 15 minutes before your alarm going off can save you a lot of stress. You will be able to run through your daily activities, plan your day or have some leverage for any ‘emergency’ such as immediate work call or irritant cashier at the coffee shop. We would suggest waking up 30 – 45 minutes earlier for a few moments with your coffee and to ponder about how beautiful life can be.
- Meditate or Say a Gratitude Prayer
Meditation helps you remove mental clutter and focus your thoughts. Your day is more productive and you will find yourself monitoring your emotions and thoughts towards a positive direction. Gratitude makes you recognize everything that is working out in your life and channel that positivity into other areas in your life. We recommend you meditate at the beginning of our day or at the end of your day, a session of minimum 15 minutes would turn give you that zen you need in your life.
