Hey, Belles! Remember in this post how I said I was going to do a “digital journal” about trying something? Well, today is the first “entry!”
During my first week, I tried cleaning for 5 days.
Did you know cleaning is excellent for you mentally and physically? So why not clean something? I thought. And guess what? I cleaned something different every day for five days in a row. Keep scrolling if you want to know what I cleaned and how it benefited me and my mind.
You may also fancy:
On the first day, I focused on cleaning my surroundings. I put stuff away, got rid of junk, dusted, vacuumed, washed sheets, and so on.
I cleaned my mind and body. I did a brain dump and took a nice, long bath. What is a brain dump? A brain dump is when you dump everything in your mind (tomorrow’s tasks, a significant upcoming test, cleaning the house before the in-laws arrive, etc.) onto paper and organize it all.
What you need:
- Pencil or pen
What to do:
Doing a brain dump or taking a bath are great ways to clean yourself and your mind. They both help keep you clean inside and out. I felt much cleaner after day two. I felt like I could do more because I had less on my mind. Plus, it felt terrific to smell good and be clean.
It’s recommended to clean makeup brushes once a week. This cleaning helps keep your skin healthy by getting rid of oils and particles that clog your pores. Your skin will thank you.
On the last day, I cleaned my body. It was like part two of my second day. A took a detox day. I ate and drank detox foods and drinks. Oil pooling was another way I detoxed. I made a detox mask and rested for 10 minutes wihile it worked. I also did detox stretches.
Detoxing your body helps clean your inside and has many other benefits. Read more about them here >>
Did you enjoy this “digital journal”? Did you/are you going to try any of the challenges I tried in my first chapter of “I Tried Something New”? Do you have any ideas or requests for me to try? Let me know in a comment!
