It is anything that keeps you from focusing and thinking straight. Stray thoughts, tasks, fears, worries, details to remember: they all add up to mental clutter, preventing you from focusing on the present.
All that takes energy away from the work you’re meant to do and the moments you are supposed to be present. Getting rid of mental clutter brings more clarity, focus, efficiency, creativity and productivity. It also reduces stress and forgetfulness

Feel overwhelmed by your thoughts? Struggling with anxiety about your daily tasks? Or do you want to stop worrying about life?
The truth is...We all experience the occasional negative thought. But if you always feel overwhelmed, then you need to closely examine how these thoughts are negatively impacting your lifestyle.
When you feel overwhelmed, ask yourself if what you have to do is necessary. Depending on the answer reschedule, drop it or continue.
Keep in mind what’s the most important thing to get done, what could be postponed and what could be done by someone else. It’s not about ignoring tasks, it’s about refocusing.
Setting clear boundaries between personal and work lives is key to maintaining flow and good mental health. The alternative creates mental clutter, a difficulty to think straight and focus due to disorganization.
Mental clutter means you rarely rest or feel truly satisfied. Set boundaries, properly manage your time and reduce your emotional reactivity to develop your focus, thus reducing mental clutter.
