14. Detox those emotions
Earlier we chatted about detoxing your body through various liquids. We have also looked at cutting out smoking and drinking and upping the exercise. But there is more we need to do. We are very quick to look at the outsides of our bodies and judge our appearances. But we seldom look internally at our emotions and those of the people in our space.
Are you happy, sad, angry, resentful, agitated, irritated or stressed? All these emotions have a direct effect on how we look and feel. Believe me, an angry person is so not sexy or even healthy looking.
Who do we have in our lives sharing our space? Is it a happy and warm environment or do we walk around on eggshells not wanting to disturb the other person’s emotions? This is not a healthy way to live and soon the telltale signs start showing; our skin looks pale and blotchy; we start eating to comfort ourselves, our stomach aches, we start consuming more alcohol or if don’t drink alcohol you could be drinking way to many sugary drinks, which give you a temporary good feeling or even start taking drugs or anti-anxiety medication to help us feel better.
When we feel emotionally insecure or emotionally threated it takes its toll on our bodies and we look older than we actually are. Deal with those emotions and find your peaceful balance; whether it’s through exercise, therapy, laughter or play its time for them to give way to a happy and healthier you. As we detox our bodies so too do we need to detox our minds. Healthy mind, healthy body.
