Decluttering your mind in five easy steps

Do you know what is worse than having a cluttered home? A cluttered mind. That’s why decluttering your mind is important. It means your mind is restless, unfocused, and agitated. When your mind is cluttered, it wastes your mental energy. Your cluttered mind doesn’t let you feel present. You can also lose connection to yourself, your environment, your relationships, and even the moment that you are currently in.

A cluttered mind creates mental confusion, distraction, and disorganization, preventing one from even creating clear priorities, making decisions, having focus, and being productive. So, it’s time to let go of your mental habits and declutter your mind. That way, you can reach your full potential. You need to become intentional about where you place your attention and how you spend your time and energy.

So, here are five easy steps when it comes to decluttering your mind.

Getting some sleep.

Sleep has numerous benefits which include helping out with your mental state. If you’re not getting enough sleep, brain fog is one of the most common effects aside from sleepiness. This is characterized by confusion, forgetfulness, and a lack of focus and mental clarity. High levels of inflammation and changes to hormones determine your mood, energy, and even focus. This, then, makes your whole system thrown off. 

Romanticizing exercise.

Just like Elle Woods said, “Exercise gives you endorphins; endorphins make you happy.” So, it’s an understandable statement that exercise is good for your overall well-being. This, of course, includes your body and your mind. Aside from decreasing anxiety and depression, it can also help you concentrate and make you feel mentally sharp for your tasks. So, try to squeeze in a workout every day. 

Physically decluttering.

A cluttered space is a cluttered mind. It is less efficient and it makes anyone feel frustrated than those who have an organized space. So, physically decluttering your workspace as soon as possible will help out with clearing your mind. Keep things organized without feeling overwhelmed or exhausted and clean up your space every day before you go to sleep.

Leave the past behind or at least try.

A cluttered mind is often related to the past. Most people keep a large cabinet of mental drawers stored in the back of their minds. There are struggles and mistakes that you definitely regret. And, when we don’t deal with our negative emotions properly, it manifests as unhealthy projections. So, try and letting those things go, move on, and truly heal. We can choose to start over again and keep pursuing your own happiness, healthy mind, and a clear mind. 

Making time for me time.

Everyone needs space to unwind. So, you have to make time for some alone time. It doesn’t have to be a week-long vacation. But, spending at least fifteen minutes without doing something is all you need to hit the reset button. Your goal isn’t to empty your mind. But, just to remove every thought, every feeling, every idea, every dream, and so much more. 

Decluttering your mind does not happen overnight. So, don’t feel frustrated if it doesn’t happen that quickly. Take your time, go at your own pace, and get some well-deserved relaxation.
