Clean mind - the path to beautiful skin and positivity
In our increasingly busy lives, it is easy to lose track of what's important. In this state, many people find it difficult to cleanse their mind and focus on what needs attention. Research have shown that there's a clear mind-skin connection. A clean mind in this case does not mean an empty and neutral one, but simply a mind in which we can focus positively, are confident of who we are and our purpose, and are at peace with ourselves.
Have you ever noticed when you are embarrassed how your blood rushes to your face? Or how when you are stressed, your face breaks out in acne? That's completely the power of the mind and you're in the driver's seat.
When we cleanse our mind, we cleanse our skin too. This means that having beautiful skin isn't just about looking after your skin mechanically but also cleansing and maintaining a clean mindset.
What is a clean mind?
A clean mind consist of three things:
(1) A focused mind
They are able to focus on the things that truly matter. Whether it is short-term such as listing the things-to-do, or long-term such as speaking with a life coach - having focus helps your mind to channel your energies to achieving a goal. A clearer sense of purpose helps us to lead a more fulfilling life - one where we are motivated and optimistic about.
(2) A positive mind
A clean mind isn't just about clarity, but also about positivity. It is important to cleanse the mind of negative thoughts so that we can focus on doing things right instead of trying too much, or worrying about things which may not matter in the long run. Many times we hang on to negative emotions, and that impacts our mental health and also our skin health.
(3) An open mind
A clean mind allows people to look at life with open-mindedness. It is about not getting stuck in a mental rut - and avoid brooding over issues. Having an open mind is having that flexibility to adopt a different perspective on things, and approaching problems more positively.
By cleansing their minds daily, individuals can learn how to be their best selves while maintaining positive relations with others. This leads to a happier person who radiates positivity that benefits everyone around them, including those who care about beauty too!
The mind-skin connection
How does having a clean mind translate to better skin? Well-rested individuals who cleanse their minds daily are less prone to stress, anxiety and depression. The lack of these elements in one's life may lead to poor skin condition or even acne breakouts. Positivity is also linked with regular exercise and good dietary habits, which are important for clear skin that radiates beauty from within.
(1) Reduction in stress hormones
If our minds are burdened with stress, a function of the mind, it will make it difficult for us to achieve beautiful skin. This is because this stress will affect the cortisol levels of our bodies, which in turn affects the production of sebum on our skin. Hence when you adopt a more positive mindset and with a clear vision of your goals, you are better able to manage your stress. This would reduce the risk of skin inflammations and overproduction of sebum, which means avoiding acne and eczema.
(2) Better self-care
A clean mind encourages clean body practices like exercise and good dietary habits which keep this vital organ healthy so it can properly prepare the rest of the organism for daily challenges.
(3) Feeling good
The clean thoughts and positive feelings emanating from within triggers the release of endorphins and oxytocin, which are hormones that make you feel happier. These feelings give people a sense of relief and calmness, allowing them to get the much needed peace of mind. Furthermore science has shown that these hormones help improve skin elasticity.
What can you do to achieve a clean mind?
So how do you clean your mind? And how can you maintain it to ensure clarity?
As there are plenty of techniques out there, the first step is to understand what each technique entails and how they may help cleanse your mind.
One of the most popular ways to cleanse your mind is through meditation. Meditation is a great practice for beginners, because it can be done anywhere at any time. It involves relaxing the muscles while focusing on breathing in order to relax the mind too. There are various types of meditation ranging from sitting cross legged in silence to walking in nature with eyes closed. The point behind meditation is to focus on present moments so you are able to cleanse yourself of negative thoughts that distract you from concentrating on your goals or worries about things that have happened in the past or might happen in the future.
Another important factor in cleansing one's mind is exercise. Exercise has been clinically proven to relieve stress, anxiety and depression. It also leads to lower blood pressure, which may help prevent acne breakouts that stem from these conditions.
When the mind is clean, the body tends to follow suit so clean eating habits are important too. Eating clean means consuming natural foods with no added sugar or chemicals in them. If possible, one should choose organic ingredients over conventionally grown ones to minimize exposure to toxins that can cause skin irritation or inflammation. This not only improves skin appearance but may also lead to a better self image since clean eating habits encourage people to love themselves more while looking at life positively!
Positivity coaching is another means by which one can expedite their journey towards beautiful skin. A positivity coach is a professional who can help one towards finding purpose, fulfilment and happiness in life. An assisted approach is also a faster and surer route to finding a more balanced state of mind.
(4) Good company
It is also important to surround yourself with positive people while cleansing your mind, lest you find yourself entangled in a web of negativity once more. Surrounding oneself with positive people ensures that negative thoughts are kept at bay and cleanse the mind faster than one could cleanse on their own!
In addition, any activities that promote positive thinking can lead to beautiful skin including journalling, reading books about positivity or watching movies that inspire happiness.
Once you cleanse your mind on a daily basis, maintaining beautiful skin naturally becomes easier to achieve. Although some things like acne can't be completely avoided, keeping up with clean mind habits will make them less likely. A clean mind also means that the body is clean, since it doesn't have to fight against negative thoughts and toxins coming from within!
All of the aforementioned activities can provide you with the environment to nurture a clean positive mind, so that it may also lead you down the path of beautiful skin and overall health.
Having a clean mind is one way of achieving beautiful skin. Conversely, maintaining beautiful skin also helps people reach a clean mind state. With enough motivation, everyone can achieve both goals!
Here's hoping this article has sparked some motivation within you all. The path to beautiful skin is a clean path indeed!
