1. Reboot Your Diet
If you’ve been eating unhealthy foods for a long period of time, you probably need to reboot your diet. You can achieve it by following a detox plan.
“Detox” is short for detoxification. It consists of a focused, short term diet that will allow your body to eliminate toxins and jump-start a weight loss program or help you to completely alter your eating habits. One of the main goals of a detox diet is to eliminate toxins from your body – which is why it’s also called a cleanse.
Wheat items such as pasta and bread are usually eliminated or avoided completely during a detox–, as well as sweeteners — such as refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup. In addition, most detox diets encourage you to eat lots of fruits and vegetables, sometimes as smoothies and shakes.
Following a detox diet can help you to reboot your diet and improvise your eating habits and your health.
2. Reboot Your Wardrobe
How many times have you opened your closet and thought the following:
- I have nothing to wear.
- Nothing in here fits.
- Everything in here is either stained, wrinkled, or is missing a button.
This probably sounds too familiar to a lot of people, and not just women. If this sounds like you, then you need to reboot your wardrobe.
A great strategy for arranging your wardrobe is to create a Project 333 for yourself. Courtney Carver invented Project 333 to challenge people to wear only 33 articles of clothing for 3 months — including clothes, shoes, jewelry, and accessories. Here’s what to do:
- Go through your wardrobe and choose the 33 items you’ll be wearing for the next three months. Everything that you choose has to fit and be in good condition.
- Put everything else inboxes. Seal the boxes with tape and put them out of sight.
- For the next three months, all you’ll be wearing are your 33 items.
Following a Project 333 will do all of the following for you:
- Help you identify your personal style — the clothes that you love to wear and that flatter your body type.
- Help you identify holes in your current wardrobe.
- Stop you from impulse buying.
- Motivate you to keep everything in your closet clean and in good shape (after all, you only have a few things to wear).
3. Reboot A Room.
If you feel like you’re going to drown in stuff every time that you enter your house, get a fresh start by rebooting a room. Choose a room in your house in which you spend a lot of time and do the following:
- Take everything out. You want to end up with an empty room, which will allow you to see how open and free space feels.
- Step back and visualize the ideal look of that room.
- Only put back the things that you need, love, and use (and which really belong in that room).
- Go slowly, starting with the most essential items.
Once you see how neat and organized everything looks in your newly rebooted room, and how much space you’ve created in that room, you’ll probably be inspired to reboot every room in your house.
4. Reboot Your Internal Clock
If your sleep cycle is out of whack–you stay up until 3:00 a.m. watching Netflix and checking Facebook–and you get up sometime after 10:00 a.m., you need to restart, or reboot, your internal clock. Your body’s clock is “set” by cues like light, when you eat, or when you exercise. Two ways to take advantage of these cues to reboot your internal clock are:
- Before you want to be awake just stop eating during the 12-16 hour period. So, if you want to create a habit start waking up at 7:00 a.m., you should stop eating at about 5:00 p.m. the day before. Don’t eat until you wake up at 7:00 a.m. the next morning. There’s scientific research to back this up.
- If you want to start getting up at 7:00 a.m., get thirty minutes of bright light ten minutes after waking up. Also, keep lights low at the end of the day, and stay away from television exposure or bright computer screens before bedtime.
5. Reboot Your Finances
Are you stressed because of your personal finances, you need to reboot your finances. Do the following:
- Get all of the food that you’re going to need for the 10 days if the month.
- Get necessities such as toothpaste and toilet paper.
- Write down the absolute essentials that you have to spend money on throughout the month, such as bus fare and the cost of utilities.
Then, for 10 days, spend absolutely no money except for the things on your “absolute essentials” list. Use the 10 days to evaluate what you’re currently spending your money on, create a budget, and create a plan on how to better deal with your finances.
6. One-Hour-A-Day Reboot
You can start each day Fresh by rebooting every morning by just following one hour a day reboot method. Regardless of what may have happened the day before or whatever the past, you can start each morning with a clean slate or a clear mind by devoting the first hour of the day to doing the following:
- Spend 15 minutes of eating a healthy breakfast.
- Spend 15 minutes writing tasks and goals for today.
- Spend 15 minutes on meditation or following a yoga routine.
- Spend 15 minutes exercising like frisk walking or stretching (Your heart rate should increase)
