Keys to a Healthy Lifestyle - Detox Your Lifestyle to Make Space For a Healthier You
By Jeni PurdieWhat do you need to let go of to make space for a healthier
lifestyle? Old habits die hard and can therefore be difficult to change. They slow you down and get in the way
of what and who you want to become.
What lifestyle habits are standing in the way of a healthier way of life for you?
In what ways can you learn to let go of activities that give you pleasure now but cost you dearly later on?
Allow yourself to think about the idea of letting go of something that's standing in the way of you achieving a
healthy lifestyle. You can choose to let go of something for now and pick it up again later if you want to, that's
your choice. However, take into account that letting go of just one thing will mean you have space to pick up
something else that might bring you even more pleasure. We invite you to do that now.
Sometimes when you feel overwhelmed by things in your life, the situation is not as real as you think it is.
Sometimes the problem is in what you think about the situation rather than the circumstances themselves. Often the
negative thought patterns associated with overwhelm come from a belief system that you learned as you journeyed
The burden of negative thought patterns can create toxicity in your mind and body, weighing you down and making
you feel heavy and demoralized. The lifestyle detox activity below will help you clear away the obstacles and let
go of thought patterns that have been keeping you from living a healthy lifestyle.
