Health Update | Detoxifying My Mind, Body & Soul


I think everyone at some point gets the feeling that they can do things in order to be healthier. I for one feel as though being healthy is a daily, weekly and monthly goal and I always find that I can improve in one way or another. 

One thing that I have been working on lately is being physically healthy as well as focusing on my wellness and happiness levels. I think that sometimes we focus too heavily on fitness side of things and what our bodies look like in the mirror, when we think of being healthy. I have been on a bit of a mission over the past few weeks however to feel healthy within my mind, as well as physically. 


I am going on holiday next week to Cyprus, and I have been making a bit more of an effort to look after my body, detox and get myself feeling a little more confident before baring all in a bikini on the beach. However, I am also really looking forward to having a week to enjoy time with my family, the sunshine and not having to work or focus on anything in particular. I feel like this holiday will contribute to my mental health, which is just as important as being physically healthy. 

It has been a little bit nonstop of late, and in the mist of all of this madness I have been trying especially hard to look after myself properly, and get rid of that feeling that I am just keeping my head above water. I have been doing a couple of little things that have helped me detoxify over the last few weeks, and I’m not talking about having kale and chia seed smoothies six times a day.


MIND

In terms of looking after my mental health, I have been taking a little more time for myself. I have had quite a lot on over the last few weeks; London Fashion Week, overtime at work and trips around the country to name just a few things. I am a bit of an introvert at heart, and so having too much on can feel a little draining. So I have tried to purposefully say no to certain things, and prioritise time for myself to appreciate some self-care. I’m talking, hot baths filled with Lush bath bombs, routine breaks, reading books and doing things that I enjoy. 


I have also been trying not to focus on the negatives. I have written a couple of different posts over the last few weeks including Ways To Remain Positive When Things Don’t Work Out and Struggling With Negativity, Taking Joy From The Little Things In Life.

BODY

I have also been focusing a little more on my body in terms of detoxing and being healthier. Ultimately I have been trying to listen to my body a lot more. I have upped my gym sessions, but I haven’t wanted to push myself too hard. I was beginning to feel exhausted like I was constantly rushing about, so I have tried to listen to my body in terms of getting more sleep, resting when I need to and not over-doing it. 


I have also been trying to eat better by having plenty of fresh food and drinking a lot more water to keep myself hydrated. I have just finished my thirty-day Skinny Coffee detox program, and although I haven’t lost tones of weight, I have shred about five pounds. I think I have also built muscle however from going to the gym, and I feel a bit more toned and my body feels healthier over all, which is the main goal.
