A Cluttered Mind Can Mess Up Your Life

A Cluttered Mind Can Mess Up Your Life

Our minds need decluttering too. Whenever we are occupied by things that are not helpful, we are burying the good things underneath. Leave the things that don’t bring us joy, don’t let them steal our peace.

Like the physical decluttering, you need to do it often. Every day if you can: just as you should tidy your room every day, so the mess doesn’t accumulate.

Clear Your Procrastination List

Make a list. Are there any important things that you’ve wanted to do but never started? How important are they? What is making you delay them?

Understand whether and how these things are important. Then decide how to tackle the challenges preventing you from starting them. When everything is clearer, make a plan and follow it.

Stop Worrying

Daily practice of mindfulness will help you detach from your emotions and watch them from above. Many times we are worrying without recognizing it.

Worrying is the biggest unhelpful thing that can occupy our minds. It takes up so much space that we can’t enjoy the present. Mindfulness will help recognize it as soon as it emerges. When it does, acknowledge it and let it pass like a cloud in the sky, then move on with the present. Don’t let your worrying control you.

Follow Through on Promises and Commitments

When you ignore or delay something that you promised to do, it still stays on top of your mind. Whenever you do something else, your brain will remind you that you should have been doing that other thing instead.

This is not helpful. Declutter the negative emotions for yourself so you can free up space for productive action.

Let Go of Anger and Forgive

We can’t focus on ourselves when our brain is occupied with emotions related to someone else, or anger and hate of the world. We need inner peace before we can focus on the present. Let go of those emotions that you bear inside.

Your emotions will only affect you, not anyone else (unless you act on it). Find your closure if you need it, but let it go.
