Mental Detox Tips

Are you feeling a little BLAH? Do you feel rundown, tired and lethargic? Summer is over, and fall has arrived. Which for some people means a little rest and relaxation is in order. If you overindulged this summer, with food and social time you may be feeling extra run down. The human body, has the ability to detox, but when we are tired and stressed out, it cannot function as optimally as possible.

Taking time out each day to pause can help you feel more aligned with yourself and feel healthier. Meditation is a good way to rebalance yourself. It serves as a form of mental detoxification.

If you are looking for a way to feel better, you can try meditate. Sit for 5-10 minutes a day in silence.

Here are the top benifits of meditation:

Improves Confidence

Meditation, whether you do it for 5 minutes or for hours, can help improve your connection with yourself. When we meditate we have an opportunity to quit the mind and the mental chatter. In the quietness we can listen to our inner voice and ourselves. This in turn can help improve our confidence.

Improves Circulation

When we sit in a moment of silence we can improve our internal bodily functions. Your circulation in general can improve if you meditate regularly.

Improves Balance

When we meditate daily we can find a sense of peace and serenity. It can actually help you connect to your breath and breathe deeper. You can feel your lungs expanding and it will help you improve your balance. You will have more mental clarity, and balance.

Improves Health

People, who meditate often, in general have a better outlook on life. They see things clearly and don’t tend to stress out about the small stuff. Most often they look at the bright side of life and understand that everything happens for a reason. If you want more balance, clarity and focus consider quieting the mind and meditating.

Mediation has been known to increase health by conditioning the mind to think more positively. When you practice meditation often you are more equipped to handle life’s difficulties. Visualization is a form of mediation that many health professionals use to help patients during health procedures.
