We are all aware of the need to detoxify the body especially after Christmas or periods of over indulgence. And the practice of detoxing the body through various ways such as fasting, yoga, massage or even colonic irrigation has become quite widespread over recent years.
What about the need to detoxify the mind?
Hippocrates the Greek physician born in 460 BC knew about the connection between the mind and disease:
Detoxing the mind is a way of removing the compulsive thoughts, fears, worries and hates from our minds and has deep and general benefits that underpin particular symptoms.
You can look at your mind as a storage system such as a hard drive on a computer or a filing cabinet storing all those outdated files, so following a mind detox programme you can clean out your inner storehouse of outdated memories and negative files. And as you start to clear them out you will find that your thoughts become more positive, clearer, more focused. You become more confident and an increased feeling of wellbeing takes over helping you to become the person you want to be.
