    Tips to create a beautiful mind:
    • Simply sit for 10 minutes. Try and empty your mind of all conscious thought.
    • Deep breathing. Close your eyes, get comfortable, breath slowly and deeply into your abdomen. Concentrate only on your breathing, counting as you do. Think of a word that has positive meaning for you; that makes you feel good. It could be ‘beach’ or ‘sunshine’ or ‘relax’ or even your child’s name. Say it to yourself as you inhale, then count as you exhale, for instance “sunshine one,” “sunshine two.” Eventually, you can train your mind to relax, at least a little, just by thinking of your word.

    Meditate on something that makes you feel good – a beautiful flower perhaps, a gentle breeze in your face, a favorite piece of music. Exclude all other thoughts. Just enjoy the moment.
    • Get physical. Nothing strenuous. Try walking, yoga or tai chi.
    • Positive affirmations. Create some short phrases that you want to apply to yourself. Things like, “I love and approve of myself,” “I am too big a gift to the world to waste my time on self-pity and sadness,” I release my anger so I can see clearly.” Whatever you do, be careful not to include negatives in your phrases. For instance, instead of “I don’t have guilt,” say, “I am free of guilt.” Repeat your phrases to yourself as soon as you get up in the morning, before going to sleep and any time you feel you need them during the day.
    • Clear the clutter in your life. This can help clear the clutter in your mind. If the disorganization in the kitchen has been bugging you, then organize it. If you owe people phone calls, letters, lunch dates – deal with it.
    • Settle unresolved issues. Does it still bug you that your sister let you down 10 years ago? Then tell her. The outcome may not be the stuff of fairy tails, but then again it might. At least it will be off your mind and you can forgive and go forward.
    • Speak your mind. Don’t argue; there’s no need to be nasty. But if someone did wrong then say so. If that person then gets belligerent and defensive, that’s their problem, not yours.
    • Be honest with people you love. Holding in your feelings creates stress so share what you feel.
    • Make a list of all the things that are bothering you, then burn the list and let go.
    • Love yourself. Accept that while you’re not perfect (no-one is) you are still a beautiful person.

    Getting peace of mind is having inner trust. Inner trust is when, no matter what bad thing happens, you still know that you will be able to create something good out of it. Rather than having self-pity you have inner trust to rely on and in that way you think out of the box to create something positive and not the other way around. This also affects your inner sense of power. When you have an inner sense of power you exude confidence and that is something that people find very compelling.

    Achieving peace of mind is something we should all strive for. How we think of ourselves reflects on our outer appearance. How we act communicates to other people who we are. A restless, unhappy sense of being often leads to aberrant or unattractive behavior. Things like, irritability, rudeness, aggression, defensiveness, always blaming others when things go wrong, overall anti-social behavior. It can drive a person into bad habits, make bad decisions and be negative in all they do. That sort of demeanor is thoroughly unpleasant.

    Detox options:
    1. Fasting. Start small. Eat only within an 8-hour period each day for a few days. (For some people, they have made this their life-style). Work yourself up to a full 24-hour period with nothing except lots of water. Eventually, this is something you might even do once a week.
    2. Fruits and veggies. For three days eat only fresh and preferably organic fruits and vegetables. Eat at least half of them raw but with absolutely no additives. Don’t overdo the fruits because of the sugar content.
    3. Juices. Do this for up to three days. You really need a juicer to make your own fresh fruit and vegetable juices. The majority of the juices should be vegetable because of the high sugar content in fruit juices. If you find this too tough, you can supplement with a little vegetable soup or a few fresh fruits and veg.
    4. Smoothies. Usually this would usually last a week. Use a base of fresh fruit or veggie juice or non-dairy milk (unsweetened almond milk is great). You can add berries, vegetables, green powder, ground flaxseed, even protein powder.
    5. Teas. Green tea is a common brew for detoxing. It also improves immunity and has been shown to help prevent some degenerative diseases. Start your morning with lemon slices in boiled water then drink green tea throughout the day. At night, drink a colon cleanse tea. There are several blends readily available.

    In the morning:
    1. Cleanse. Try a little raw honey rubbed between your hands then massaged into your face. Remove with warm water. For dry skin, mix the honey with a little milk, for oily skin use honey and a few drops of lemon juice.
    2. Tone. Apple cider vinegar makes for a terrific and very inexpensive toner. It must be raw, organic apple cider vinegar. For normal skin types mix ¼ cup of vinegar with ½ cup filtered water. Adjust the amounts for oily or dry skin. Dab on with a cotton ball being careful around the eyes. Rinse with warm water.

    A Detox Diet requires eating healthy fresh, organic and naturally grown greens, veggies and fruits. This helps add fiber to your body that filters bad toxins and leaves the good bacteria in your body to restore your energy and immune system. There is also one type of detox which is skin detox. The largest organ in your body is the skin and it needs to be taken care of to be beautiful inside and out. You can even detox by doing exercise, which makes you sweat out toxins in your body, enhancing good flow of the blood and saving yourself from being prone to being sick all the time. Plus, you can try saunas, hot yoga, body scrubs to eliminate dead skin cells, helping regenerate a good and smooth surface to the skin.
    Some of these detoxification methods can be a little pricey: spa retreat detox services, body wraps, colonic irrigation and prescribed regimens. So instead, try some of the suggestions at the end of this chapter.

    Olive oil is another natural beauty treatment with excellent moisturizing capabilities. You can also use olive oil in controlling dandruff, to help restore color damaged hair, add hair shine, serve as a conditioner, and soften your hands, lips, cuticles and nails. Allergies are known to be rare when using these types of natural beauty treatments.

    beauty, naturally:
    1. Black head removal. For a lovely, clear complexion, take a wedge of lemon with a few drops of raw honey on it and rub over your face, avoiding the eyes. Leave on for a few minutes before rinsing in cool water. Best to do this at bedtime.
    2. Decrease wrinkles. Cut the morning coffee in favor of detox tea. Or at least drink the tea before you have the coffee (coffee is a diuretic and, therefore, dehydrating). You can make a quick tea by steeping a little fresh ginger root in hot water then stir in a touch of cayenne pepper, lemon juice and, to sweeten it, some natural stevia.
    3. Exfoliate. For an inexpensive but effective scrub, mix a little sea salt into olive oil. You’ll give yourself softer, glowing skin but be careful to avoid the eyes if you use this on your face.
    4. Get your hair professionally styled. This can make a huge difference to your looks. The right style can enhance your best features and detract from your worst. You don’t need to pay a fortune to change your hair color. Glossy, healthy hair is more attractive than brittle, over-treated locks. And getting the latest style can be a huge mistake. If it doesn’t suit you, you can just look silly.
    5. Have sex. There are studies that confirm romping in the bedroom with your significant other will increase blood flow and bring essential nutrients and oxygen to the skin. This, in turn, flushes away harmful toxins so you look younger, more beautiful and have rosy, glowing cheeks.
    6. Keep fat cells and acne at bay. Massage an ice cube or two over your face.
    7. Lighten your hair naturally. If you feel you really must lighten your hair color, put aside the harsh chemicals and rinse with a mix of lemon juice and chamomile. If you can, sit in the sun to let your hair dry.
    8. Look younger with an avocado face mask. Simply whip a ripe avocado with a little raw honey (which is naturally anti-bacterial) and apply it to your face. This is also a good time to lay back, relax and meditate for a while. As an alternative, apply it in the shower after the steam has opened up your pores so the ingredients will penetrate more easily. Wash off just before you get out.
    9. Luscious lips. Plump your pout quickly and easily by applying petroleum jelly to your lips then, with a soft bristle toothbrush, rub your lips gently in a circular motion. Do this morning and night.
    10. Moisturize your nails. Simply soak them in olive oil.
    11. Remove build-up of commercial shampoos. Mix ¼ cup raw apple cider vinegar with 1 cup of water and rinse your hair to remove the build-up from shampoo. Use conditioner after if you wish. This will help restore your hair’s natural gloss.
    12. Shape your eyebrows. Whether you pluck, tweeze, wax or go to a professional, the right brow shape can drastically and quickly improve appearance. Heavy, bushy brows distract from your other features. Just be careful not to go to the other extreme – a thin pencil line creates a harsh look above your eyes.
    13. Soothe your face. Spread Pepto-Bismol over your face. Leave it for up to 30 minutes then rinse with warm water.
    14. Soothe puffy eyes. Those dark bags under your eyes can make you look tired and ill. Here are three quick and cheap ways to help take care of that.
    • Cucumber. Put slices of chilled cucumber over your eyes for about 10 minutes. Cucumber’s astringent properties help reduce inflammation. Do this several times a day, if you can.
    • Tea bags. Steep the bags in warm water for a few minutes. Wring them out a little then place over your eyes ‘til they cool. This should help give relief from redness and irritation.
    • Frozen peas. Take a bag of frozen peas and hold it over your eyes for a few minutes. This can reduce puffiness and bring relief to tired eyes.
    15. Strengthen hair. Does your hair break easily? Comb about ½ cup mayonnaise through wet hair. Leave it on for about 15 minutes before rinsing and shampooing as usual.
    16. Tighten a slack jaw. If double chins and a chicken neck are getting you down, try this simple exercise. Tilt your head back slowly; pucker your lips and try to kiss the ceiling. You’ll feel the stretch in your neck. Do this several times.
    17. Tighten your skin by brushing. Get yourself a long-handled skin brush. Use it dry right before you shower or wet, with soap, while you shower. Brush lightly from the outer extremities of your body to the center. This eliminates dead cells, can reduce cellulite, helps to clean out the lymphatic system and tighten your skin leaving it soft, smooth and glowing.
    18. Zap pimples. Whatever you do, don’t squeeze them. Instead, apply a little toothpaste (not the gel kind) to each zit and leave on overnight. Rinse off with warm water.

    We’ll use some avocados for the next set of natural beauty treatments. Avocados contain natural essential oils that can be helpful to moisturize. You can also use the peel and rub the inside over the skin gently, both face and neck, as it can be the nature’s gift of a natural cleanser. A piece of avocado set over the eyes can be used for reducing puffiness of the eyes. It's natural and it is healthy so is not harmful for the skin.

    One great natural beauty treatment is Banana. It has high potassium levels and is packed with other minerals and vitamins. If you apply an amount of mashed banana to your skin, hair and face, it will help moisturize your precious skin. You can then also use oatmeal to add an exfoliant to the natural beauty treatment. Just imagine - a simple banana can help as a moisturizer. Many experts have been using this method for years.

    Beauty is not only measured by physical means, but also the inner you. Being mentally fit shows the wonderful and pleasant inner you. Feed your soul and mind with positivity and all good thoughts, pray or reflect, do meditation, learn new stuff, get a hobby to do. Love the people that are surrounding you. In this way you get to be mentally healthy. By being mentally healthy that means the true inner beauty of your personality comes out naturally.

It is good if you surround yourself with people who are happy, joyful, friendly and optimistic, this way we are influenced by their positive nature.
