Do you feel worn out all the time? Lethargy is one symptom of being sick and sickness comes from toxic elements in your body and your life. It’s time for a detox to get your life back on track. Let’s get you some happiness, shall we? Here’s four unwanted aspects of your life to start removing right now.
There’s so much that can bring you down on a daily basis. Bad relationships, over-hyping, excess shopping and too much clutter are some of the most common toxic life elements that drag people down. But you don’t have to live with them forever, either; we’ll show you how they’re draining your potential and how to remove them.
Ditch the Toxicity and Live Clean With This Guide.
Bad Friends and Romantic Relationships
Long-lasting friendships aren’t common because finding the right people in your life is difficult. Not everyone has the same chance to bond with others over a long period; some individuals move around too much while others just never meet the people to click with. It’s tempting to hold onto these friendships forever.
Are you always exhausted or in a bad mood when you’re around specific friends? Maybe they’re always asking you for a favor or manipulating your schedule to meet their own needs. Helping out your friends is essential but the toxic ones take that sentiment too far. They’re hamstringing what you can do in your life; let go of the “friends” that are dragging you down.
Toxic romantic relationships are even more detrimental than friendships. You’re spending most of your time outside of work with this person; don’t let them make it miserable and unbearable. Dumping this kind of toxic relationship is difficult, especially if you’re financially dependant on each other. You deserve better treatment and the ability to live your own life. Get out of that relationship while you still can.
The “Hype Mindset”
Getting excited about products, politics and other events in your life isn’t necessarily harmful. What is detrimental is becoming over-zealous about it and letting the hype blind your judgment. Kickstarter campaigns are new and exciting; don’t drop your entire savings on an idea that doesn’t exist. A movie based on your favorite fictional universe is coming out soon.
Do you REALLY need all of the limited edition goodies that promote it?
The hype mindset is extremely toxic when it comes to important life decisions and politics. Stay away from promises that will get you out of debt right now or political speeches that promise the world. Don’t settle for a great idea that might fix everything; look for tangible ways to improve your life.
Too Much Shopping
Shopping addicts aren’t the only ones who spend too much money. Do you need five screwdrivers? How much clothing is sitting in your closet and how often do you wear it? It’s entirely possible you’ve purchased much more than you regularly use. Imagine how much money you can save by only buying what you NEED!
Excess clutter is irritating and a major eyesore. Disorganized and chaotic houses are detrimental to your wellbeing. Is your home a mess but you’re unsure of what to get rid of? Try a few strategies that minimalists use to keep their clutter to a minimum.
The “packing party” method is particularly useful. Pack everything you own into boxes as if you were moving. Only take out what you need as you use it over the next couple of months. Anything remaining a box is something you most likely don’t need anymore; throw it away or have a garage sale to remove your clutter.
Your life is meaningful; don’t let it get swamped by negativity and toxicity. Sit down and analyze the aspects of your life that keep you down and make happiness seem unattainable. Detoxing your life won’t happen overnight but the end result is well worth the effort.
