minutes to... Detox your life
You’ve done dry January (maybe); now hit ‘refresh’ for February
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take a long, hard look at your daily beauty collection – is that mascara out of date?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.
