Life Hack: Detox Your Life in 3 Simple Steps

It's only March - or, should I say, it's already March - and we all have a lot on our plates. My husband and I are submerged in work, and trying to be present for our son and fit in some time to ourselves isn't an easy task. I'm not even going to mention reading, blogging, or any kind of tv bingeing and fun, spontaneous outing because those are too much of a rare luxury. Anyway, in an order to calm my busy mind, I've decided to declutter, or detox, my life. Here are a few pointers o how to get started, without getting too intense with the minimalistic trend. 


☾ Focus on one thing at a time. Granted, it's easier said than done, but you can't tackle everything at once. 

☾ Make lists, write in a planner, a whiteboard, anything to help you set out your priorities and tackles those first. 

Practice yoga. I seems counter intuitive to add more things to your to-do list, but a 20 min at-home yoga class could help you focus and relax. I still love Namaste TV yoga classes and so does my husband. 


☾ Drink water. Tons of it. It's good for you, helps flush toxins and that's that.

Practice yoga, No, I'm not confused. Yoga is good for your soul and your body. It will not only relax you, but it is also an awesome way so get stronger and to flush toxins. 

☾ Do a mini cleanse. Whether it's a juice cleanse like this one, or a "teatox", they will help you cleanse your system, flush toxins and feel stronger and refreshed. I completed the Skinnymint teatox in January and while I can't say the effects  on my body were obvious, it did feel good to set a healthy ritual for my body. 


☾ Don't hoard. Get rid of stuff. A detox isn't just about cleansing your body and mind. It also means decluttering your environment. 

☾ Donate the toys your child isn't playing with anymore. 

☾ Donate the clothes you haven't worn in over 6 months, or that don't fit you or make you feel pretty when you wear them. 

☾ Clean up your inbox. Apple makes it easy to unsubscribe from mailing lists, but even without it, take the 5 extra seconds to scroll down an unwanted email and click that unsubscribe button. If your inbox is overwhelmingly full, you're likely to feel overwhelmed too. 




Do you have any tips to help you stay focused and organized?

  1. Hey Orane!

    Those are all excellent options. My only comment pertains to the last point you made about unsubscribing. Instead of unsubscribing, which only seems to work half the time, I've started using Streamline. It declutters all my promotional emails AND sorts them by expiration date, so that I can still take advantage of the deals that I am emailed without having a cluttered inbox.

    Hope that helps!
