min­utes to... Detox your life

You’ve done dry Jan­uary (maybe); now hit ‘re­fresh’ for Fe­bru­ary

Look (UK) - - HEY BUSY GIRL! -

1 Re­con­nect with a lon­glost friend...

Whether you gave your old pal the cold shoul­der af­ter they did some­thing to an­noy you or con­tact is lim­ited to texts and so­cial me­dia, now is the time to re­con­nect over cof­fee or a phone call. Hit dial now.

2 ... and bid farewell to en­ergy vam­pires

hang­ing on to bad friend­ships will only bring you down. you want to be sur­rounded by pos­i­tive peo­ple who ben­e­fit your life rather than hin­der it. let go of neg­a­tiv­ity – any­one who makes you feel less than joy­ful – and hit delete.

3 or­gan­ise your hand­bag

We’re all used to hav­ing chaos liv­ing in­side our beloved tote but, ac­cord­ing to a re­cent study*, be­ing more or­gan­ised can re­duce stress and help you sleep bet­ter. Start by us­ing your com­mut­ing time to bin all those old re­ceipts.

4 de­clut­ter & detox your make-up bag

take a long, hard look at your daily beauty col­lec­tion – is that mas­cara out of date? do you re­ally need ev­ery­thing that’s in there? it’s time to sort through it all. as well as get­ting rid of prod­ucts past their use-by date and full of bac­te­ria, it’ll lighten your load.

5 grab a book

Read­ing for 20 min­utes a day is said to in­crease focus and im­prove pro­duc­tiv­ity. Put down your phone when you’re trav­el­ling and pick up a novel. By the time you get to work, you’ll be ready to go.
