What is a Dating Detox?
Let’s face it. We all get incredibly frustrated with dating. Nothing can cause more pain and frustration than the disappointment of another relationship not working out. Yet, if you stay aware, you may be noticing that there are repeated patterns of behavior occurring. Perhaps you’ve had a year of zero first dates turning into second dates. Or you continue to be attracted to narcissistic men. Perhaps you have a thing for emotionally unavailable women. Whatever the pattern is, you have to take some time to pay attention to the message it is trying to send to you. A dating detox can be a wonderful way to get back on track and cultivate a positive mindset!
A dating detox is a mindful decision to take time for yourself and to reflect on what is not working. It is also an opportunity for you to really think about what it is that you want and to take care of yourself enough to be fully present in the dating world.
We Generally have Negative Mindsets When We are Burnt Out
I know that this past holiday season was a rough one for my own mindset. Being burnt out and then needing to show up for family was a recipe for getting sick and being exhausted. However, most people fight the need to rest. I made a choice to give in and rest this holiday season. I am so glad I did! It provided me with uninterrupted time to really think through what it is that I want in all aspects of my life and helped me successfully transform my own dating strategy.
You cannot attract the type of person or enjoy the process of dating when you are burnt out or emotionally unbalanced. Watch the video below to learn more about what a dating detox actually is and how you can start the process of recovery now!!
