Life after the pandemic needs a complete restart if we want to thrive in all areas of our life. We’ll have to learn how to live with this virus and reinvent our habits and daily routines and still thrive. All areas of our life can go through a detox to remove stale energy and improve our wellbeing. 

Say no often

Saying no to the things that don’t serve you will make you happier and content. You won’t miss out on anything if you don’t feel like doing it or participating in the first place. “Thank you and no” are four powerful words you should practice saying often. They will help you set up clear boundaries and find time for things you do enjoy. They will also clear out your life of negative people and negative energy as well.

Put down the phone

How can you find out if you’re addicted to your phone? Put your phone in the other room, away from your workstation. Start your work and observe your behavior. Are you feeling nervous and restless because you can’t see the notification light flashing? Try this exercise to find out whether you’re addicted to your phone. You most likely are, like the majority of people today.

Our phones are like an extension of our hand. The best way to detox your phone habits is to limit screen time on your phone first. Next, try limiting your daily usage to certain times of the day. In the morning, midday, and afternoon. You can also try living your house without your phone on the weekends to try being more present and mindful.

Read instead of scrolling mindlessly

Every time you wait in the line, you take out your phone and use it as entertainment. It’s also the way you spend your commute time, lunch breaks, while you wait for a friend to meet you and the list goes on. While youćre glued to the screen observing other people’s lives, you fail to be present in the moment and observe life happening around you.

You can easily spend between 4 and 6 hours on social media every day. So instead of scrolling mindlessly, try reading a book instead. There’s room in your bag for a book you can use to entertain yourself while you wait. Reading will keep your mind sharp and you’ll learn a lot along the way.

Expel toxins through exercise

Exercise is almost like a universal medicine to a number of ailments. You’re feeling stressed, try working out. If you’re depressed, a regular exercise regime will fill your body with happy hormones. Have trouble sleeping? Wear yourself out with a strength training exercise. Get yourself some CyberFit power rack and dumbbells and elevate your workouts by taking them up a notch. Make room in your schedule for at least 3-4 moderate-intensity workouts. Try to walk as much as you can as well because you’ll get your daily steps, spend more time outside and it also counts as a low-impact physical activity.

Invite the outside into your home

Remember that feeling of peace and tranquility you get when you spend time in nature, in a nearby park or while hiking? That is what you get when you surround yourself with greenery. That’s why you should apply the same principle in your home and detox it with greenery.

If you haven’t tested your green thumb yet, now’s the time. Indoor plants that are ideal for purifying your home will improve the air quality and the entire vibe of your place. Start your plant journey with easy to maintain plants you’ll easily take care of.

Infuse your diet with superfoods

Food is the last one on the list because we won’t focus on detoxing shakes or cleanses as the only way to detox your life. Our focus is on superfoods that aid your body and detox it along the way. Meals can have that detox effect if you infuse them with the right elements. Antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals are found in superfoods and they will keep you healthy, strong, energized, and keep you strong against illnesses. Some of the superfoods you can use are parsley, garlic, apples, berries, kale, and other green veggies, nuts, oats, cacao, and others. You can mix them into smoothies, salads, and other meals and embrace the detoxifying benefits.

These six tips will help you detox your life, health, and protect your wellbeing and health. Start by saying no, put down the phone and pick up a book, exercise, put plants into your home, and try superfoods to detox your life with ease.
