It is more likely that most of you will adopt a diet/body detox way ahead of considering ways to detox your mind.

Your life is so crazy and frenzied these days - stop!

Take a moment, consider ways to detox your mind, and to free up some space in your cluttered head.

Have a look over the areas of your life that you can improve upon: spiritual, career, financial, physical, mental, family and social.

Here are some suggestions.

1. Count to 10

Ways to detox your mind donโ€™t always involve a lengthy plan of action.

Learn to control your gut reactions.

When something is said, or something happens, chemicals in your brain cause you to lash out.

Try to control this;

count to 10.

This gives you pause, and enables you to give a considered response to the crisis.

Youโ€™ll find that the crisis is not as big as you originally thought, just because you can now act rationally, and figure other options.

2. Affirmations

Choose some positive mantras, and get in the habit of repeating them to yourself at times throughout the day.

Write them down, so you can memorize them.

Here are some that may work for you: โ€œI like to try new things,โ€ โ€œI will keep calm under pressure,โ€ โ€œI have been blessed with a new day,โ€ โ€œI trust myself to make the right choices,โ€ โ€œI am a good person.โ€ Repeating these or similar phrases will do wonders for your self-confidence, and as you begin to live them, you will find your mind detox taking effect.

3. Deny the Negativity

As you are building your positive feelings, so should you learn to keep that inner voice under control.

You know that evil voice, the one that says โ€œyouโ€™re useless,โ€ โ€œyouโ€™re an awful mom,โ€ โ€œyouโ€™ll never be able to get this right,โ€ and so it goes on.

We are so hard on ourselves.

We would NEVER say this to any of our friends or family, so why on earth would we feel itโ€™s O.K.

to speak to ourselves like that?

Treat yourself better, you deserve more than that;

detox your mind of this negging of yourself.
