Why & How of Detoxing your Mind

This post is part of The Detox Series.  A simple google search about the word detox will tell you that it is a process through which you can rid your body of from the toxins. Detoxing has gone mainstream as a vast number of people tend to seek wellness. But an important aspect of our body, our mind, its health and vigour is often ignored.
