Mental Detox

"Health is not jus about what you're eating or how much time you spend in the gym. It is also about what you're thinking, saying, and how you're feeding your mind." - The Orange Elephant

I think it is safe to say that we ALL need a detox from the media. We've done enough damage to our our brain by scrolling on our newsfeed reading back to back stories of death and hate, as well as watching the news for more tragic updates. Mentally this isn't healthy and our mind can only digest so much filth on a daily basis. So do yourself a favor and turn off your televisions. Spend less time on social media. Power down your technology devices a couple hours before heading to bed. Instead, focus on the things you love. If you don't know what you love to do... take time to figure it out. Play your favorite song. Spend time with your family and friends. Have brunch. Plan weekend getaways.

Don't miss out on the pure blessing and enjoyment of life with the bombardment of depressing news stories. Whatever you decide to do... Please give yourself a mental detox. Your brain deserves it.
