One of the many things you notice when you begin decluttering is how so much of the clutter in your house reflects the clutter in your mind. If you’re hanging onto to a pile of clothes that don’t fit, or the unsightly vase your mother gave you for Christmas or the workout bike you might get around to using, you don’t simply have a problem with too much stuff. You have a problem letting go. Chances are you’re also hanging onto a whole bunch of awful feelings, ill-founded assumptions, old grievances and future worries.
If it feels right to declutter your house, it feels even better to declutter your mind. Here are some beneficial expert tips to make some space in your mind.
1. Use some meditation techniques You don’t have to do the full sitting on a cushion in a darkened room thing to benefit from meditation techniques. If you’re feeling overwound, some simple breathing techniques can help you calm down and focus. For a few minutes, focus only on your breathing and nothing else. If your mind wanders or gets back into the worrying groove, you must put that aside and come back to focus on your breath.
2. Write it down It can help to write down anything that’s on your mind. Once all those worries are down on paper, you can prioritize them and work out a plan to deal with them. You can also assess them to identify what’s essential and what isn’t. When you can see what’s important, you can focus your energy and free up some of that mental space!
3. Stay in the present Brooding over the past and worrying about the future take up a lot of space in your mind and achieve precisely nothing. Let go of regret over past mistakes or resentment of past slights and move on. Keep your focus on what you can influence right here, right now.
4. Do one thing at a time Multitasking is not only overrated (it’s very inefficient), it also leads to greater anxiety, and you never do any one thing properly. Focus on doing things methodically and thoroughly. As you finish one task, move onto the next task.
5. Control all the incoming data We talk about being available 24/7 and the 24-hour news cycle, but there is only one person who can control that. You. You can choose to switch off your computer, smartphone, and tv and control the amount of data your brain is trying to process.
Decluttering your mind will pay off in all sorts of ways you hadn’t imagined. You will be more productive, less stressed and more motivated.
