How to Detox Your Life

How to Detox Your Life


Yogic texts have been saying it for centuries– the mind, spirit, and body is connected— if one is out of balance our entire unit is thrown off kilter. In India the gurus and practitioners would use kriya yoga to cleanse the mind of toxins, use asana practice to release the issues in the tissues, and eat a satvic diet to keep the body clear and functioning optimally.

In today’s society (like in the blackstone lodge canmore ab)– we are not equipped with such practices– although we probably need them more than ever. We are constantly fed with the unrealistic expectations of the media, environmental pollution, and intense stresses of the infamous double day (full time mother plus full time job, etc).

Below is a series of practices you can do to purge your mind, body, and spirit into a state of optimal rebalance:

Detox Your Environment:

Zen buddhists believe the state of your environment affects your mind. So if your office space is messy, with crumpled paper, and misplaced files; it’s no surprise if your mind will also be a mess too! Start off by purging any paperwork you don’t need, and organizing your tools into compartments, so it’s easier to sort through what you need. You’ll not only save time, you’ll save energy which you can invest into greater productivity. You can also do a qucik pickup of your house for some more headspace.

Meditation for Detox:

Meditation is the best way to slow down your mind, grant clarity, and soften/understand tumultuous emotions. It’s scientifically proven, meditation de-stresses our minds, and sets us on the right path for the day. Start by sitting in the morning for five minutes, and watching your breath. When your mind strays, notice your thoughts, but don’t attach to the story. Come back to your breath, and continue. Once you can sit through five minutes effortlessly, slowly increase your sequence. I sit for twenty minutes each morning, and find the ritual sets me up for success for the rest of the day.

Detox Diet Cleanse:

When are body is cleansed of toxins, we are brought back into balance. If our bodies are not balanced, our minds and/or spirits will also be thrown off, and we won’t live full of vitality. I don’t recommend not eating or only drinking fluids, if you have hormonal problems or weak adrenals, this act will only wreck havoc on your system. Start by eating whole foods, and cutting all chemicals, wheat, diary, processed foods out of your diet. If you are familiar with the Wild Rose Diet, I’d highly recommend. Eat lots of whole grain rice, lean organic fish/meats, organic fruits/vegetables, and almonds. The first couple days might be hard, but once you break through the tipping point, you’ll feel absolutely fantastic!
