7 Tips To Declutter Your Mind For A Healthier Life
Decluttering your mind is like decluttering your home. You throw out what you don't want and keep what you need. By taking control of your life you can make better decisions and focus on the things that matter the most.
Here are 7 tips to declutter your mind and to help improve your quality of life.
1. Many people are list makers because it helps them not only remember what to do, but it helps them to prioritize. A brain dump of what's stored in your head onto a notebook will help to declutter your mind and you will have a lot less thought juggling. Write down your thoughts and feelings as it can be therapeutic.
2. Deal with problems as they arise. If there are problems with people, take a few days to gather your thoughts. You don't want to act in haste. Don't put it off with excuses. The longer you leave the problem, the more stressed you feel as it will be a constant reminder and if it's a recurring problem with a person, it can escalate and become worse.
Holding grudges takes a lot of energy. Instead forgive and give yourself peace of mind.
3. Surround yourself with positive people as they have a lot of positive energy.
4. Organize your life by adding and omitting items on your list, delegating home responsibilities and planning ahead. Set a schedule for yourself. Unexpected situations will happen, but at least you can look at your list and decide what to do next.
Your home should be clutter free too. A cluttered home depletes your energy and clogs your mind. The more you look at the mess, the more stressed you become and the idea of cleaning the clutter is overwhelming, but once you start organizing and eliminating you'll feel better even when you've tackled a small area.
5. Learning to say no is important. Don't take on more than you can handle or clutter your mind with unnecessary thoughts.
6. Some people don't like to ask for help because they think it's a sign of weakness, but it's not true. Talking it out and sharing your thoughts with a friend about a situation can help you look at things in a different perspective instead of rehashing your own thoughts in your head.
7. Taking a break is another important task to do and many people don't take advantage of it because they feel like it's a time waster. Take frequent breaks of 15 - 20 minutes between your work schedule to refresh and re-energize your mind. A longer break like going on holidays is a great way to rejuvenate, re-evaluate and declutter your mind to focus on other things that are also important in life.
