Most of us have a cluttered mind that is restless and unfocused. Mental clutter can include worrying, negative thinking, and many more. Here are 7 ways to declutter your mind so you can stop feeling so overwhelmed and get more done!
1. Declutter Your Physical Space
Physical clutter leads to mental clutter. I recommend reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. This book provides rather easy & simple methods that will guide you to declutter your space.
2. Write Things Down & Keep a Journal
Write down things that you need to remember. Think of it as a storage device for all those bits and pieces of info e.g. appointments, ideas. Keeping a journal is similar, but with more depth. A journal allows you to reflect and get your mind cleared. You can write about many things e.g. stuff that worrying you, or plans for achieving your goals.
3. Let Go of the Past
Discard memories that are not serving you well and are cluttering up your present.
4. Avoid Multi-Tasking
You can focus more when you do one thing at a time, and you will be a lot more productive!
5. Get Away from Technology
Take a break from all the info that you take in constantly from TV and social media.
You simply can’t finish everything on your endless to-do list. Make a short list of your top priorities.
Meditation is the best way to declutter your mind by helping you to focus, and get a clearer vision. I enjoy using Headspace App every night to relax my busy brain. It is very user-friendly and easy to use. If you don’t normally meditate and don’t know where or how to start, this app will be perfect to guide you through.
