3 Detox Procedures That Have Nothing To Do With Your Meal Plan

November 23, 2015

What comes into your mind when someone mentions the word DETOX?

I instantly think about food. I see green smoothies, a variety of supplements and the word RESTRICTION all over – which is (for a hedonist like me) not a nice word.

As you already noticed I don’t talk a lot a about food. I don’t post many #food or #foodporn photos or advices about what you should eat and what you shouldn’t.

Don’t get me wrong, what you put into your belly is super important, but I just love to bite into whatever I desire, so I feel no right to be preaching from the top about what you should consume.

Instead of food, let’s talk about another CLEANSING.

I did a detox. One week detox. I lost 10 pounds of jealousy, 4 pounds of annoyance, 3 pounds of FOMO (fear of missing out) and gained 5 hours of spare time. I feel lighter and happier then ever before and I didn’t even smell a kale smoothie.

Here’s what I did.

1) SOCIAL MEDIA DETOX

I know what you think: “You are just using it!”  Don’t get me wrong. I love Instagram and Facebook and other social platforms. They connect me to you and I cannot live without 9gag posts cause well, they are just hilarious.

I’ve noticed that I’m spending too much time just scrolling down while life moves forward. So I  posted a sticky note close to my computer, wrote 1 week SM detox, wrote 7 days (Mon., Tue., Wed., …) and ticked every time another day passed without me logging to this platforms.

Oh my goodness, how much lighter is to wake up without knowing she’s been to Kenya and he ate proteins for breakfast. I’m not saying you should delete all your accounts, I’m just saying to pay more attention to NOT pay too much attention to be the observer (watcher, judger, commentator) of other peoples lives. It’s great that we have this online world, but don’t forget to be part of the real world too. Log out and spend some quality time with friends. I promise you’ll feel more rich than any online millionaire.

2) LIVING SPACE DETOX

Just two words: KONMARI METHOD. Please, for the sake of bringing the joy in every corner of your life, read this book and do what Miss Tidy is saying. You will become a new person and there is no better feeling that knowing you are surrounded only by things that make you happy.

I give you my pinky-swear promise; this book is life changing.

3) PHOTO DETOX

Prepare your computer and your phone, put on your favourite music, get yourself some dark chocolate (I told you I suck at giving healthy food advices) and delete all the photos that don’t make you excited and happy. I usually know the photo is a Keeper, when a big smile is all over my face and the area around my chest becomes warmer. In my case, I’m keeping photos of airplanes, speedboats, hotels, oceans, dogs,  friends and of room services (another proof that I’m really bad at food detox stuff) 😉

      Hi Lauren! Thanks for reading! It’s really a great book, changes the way you look at all – not only at “things”. 🙂

    Hi Sandra! I am going to start by reading the de-cluttering book. Will certainly give it a try! You also mention photos….you are lucky that you don’t come from the generation that had printed photos, boxes and boxes full!
    Thanks for your advice!
    I send you a big hug!

      Hello my beautiful Jurate! Yes, that’s a great way to start. I know what you mean with printed photos – my mom created so many beautiful albums but luckily she has a great instinct about what to keep 🙂 Ms. Konde also mentiones (in the book) how to deal with photos and boxes of photos, so just give it a try! Would love to hear your opinion once you read the book and do the “declutter ritual”.

    Two words: Awesome writing!
    You have really become a master of words, in the last years, I’m amazed! Congratulations! 🙂
    If I could borrow the book that you are mentioning, that would be great.
    Have a lovely Friday and even a better weekend.
    Kisses to Germany**
