The word ‘cleanse’ has a refreshing and renewing essence. We often relate this word to dieting like the popular juice cleanse recipes and cleansing that's related to skin care routines where you remove all the toxins from your skin.

The whole purpose of a cleanse is to give yourself a new beginning through a detoxing process. That exact same concept can be applied to your entire life.

Everyone needs to get rid of the extra baggage in life in order to keep moving forward with an optimistic mindset.

There are so many things that can kill ones joy and one way of ensuring you stay on track is through regular life cleansing routines.

Here’s how you can achieve that.

  1. Review your friend list

Since the friends you surround yourself with are a reflection of you, choose those who guide you in the right direction in life.

When you notice you feel drained every time you hang out with certain people, it could be time for a review.

  4. 3. Ingredient of the week: Rice flour
  5. 4. Revealed: The hidden meaning of the funeral flowers you choose

As you work to improve your life every day, you will have to let go of meaningless friendships that don’t actually impact you positively.

The moment you get the courage to walk away from toxic friends, you will feel completely relieved.

  1. Leave the past behind

Being stuck in the past will hinder you from enjoy a fulfilling life. You will always be anxious about the things you wish you did or didn't do and the cycle never ends.

The best thing you can do for yourself is to find ways to move on.

This could be through making the conscious decision to forgive yourself, letting go of grudges with others or even through therapy for deeper healing.

  1. Give your body a cleanse

No life cleanse is complete without a body cleanse.

If you’ve been excessively eating the wrong things like sugary drinks, fast foods and other foods that aren't that good for you, you need to change things right away.

Remember that the effects of what you put in will eventually show especially on your skin. Kick start your body cleanse by embracing the right foods and by hitting the gym.

  1. Declutter your home

Our environments have a bigger impact on our lives than we think.

A clean, organized home will significantly improve your mood as compared to a home that's full of unnecessary stuff.

Therefore, find some time when you can throw stuff you don’t need or give the items you don’t use anymore away.

This decluttering process will clear up your house and your mind because it actually has therapeutic benefits as well.

  1. Stop the toxic patterns

Everyone has a couple of bad habits that don’t reflect their admirable attributes as a person.

However, there are some patterns that are more severe than others and those are the ones that can cause serious effects on you or others around you. Examples can be drug use and alcoholism.

These habits deceive you into falling back into them over and over again, which is what encourages addiction. And being stuck on bad habits exposes you to other problems like depression.

It’s time to seek help if you're struggling to break free. This one change will be the ultimate cleanse for your life.

  1. Protect your peace

Choosing your battles wisely is a sure way to appreciate life more. It’s easy to get triggered and annoyed by everything which is no way to live.

Be aware of the things that can cause you to sink into negativity by keeping calm and being slow to anger.

There are times when you won’t be so excited to take a back seat but it will go a long way in helping you maintain good emotional and mental health.

A great tip to help you whenever you feel drained is finding your go-to calming strategies.
