Got a mind full of clutter?
Now’s a good time to start the declutter says John Bullock.
Mental clutter? There’s nothing worse in my opinion.
It can include all of the following: worrying about the future; ruminating about the past; keeping a mental to-do list; complaints; etc.
Want some ways to declutter your mind so you can stop feeling so overwhelmed?
Here’s part one of a quick guide from Pain Point Coach:
- Declutter Your Physical Environment. Decluttering your physical space clears your mental space too. Ditch that unwanted camouflage jacket.
- Write It Down.
Why keep everything in your head? List appointments, phone numbers, ideas for future projects, and so on in an app or in a physical notebook.
- Keep a Journal.
Keeping a journal (an extension of the above point). List things that you’re worried about; Plans for achieving an important goal; Concerns about a relationship that’s draining your energy; etc.
- Let Go of the Past.
Empty those mental drawers filled with thoughts about mistakes you’ve made, opportunities missed, people you hurt, past grievances, and so on. Slowly discard memories of the past that are not serving you well and are just cluttering up your current life.
- Stop Multi-Tasking.
If your house is a mess and you need to organize and declutter it, how would you begin? You would probably start by choosing one important area—for example, the kitchen table—and clearing it of all clutter.
We’ll reveal part 2 very soon on here so keep in touch.
