Health And Mental Clutter

Your mind and body are one. It’s much easier for a physically unhealthy person to experience a poor mental state.

Things like lack of sleep, improper eating habits and lack of exercise, among others, can throw your internal balance in disarray and with it, bring mental clutter.

Circumstances And Mental Clutter

Our circumstances can add to mental clutter, and inertia often leaves us stuck with it. But we can and should change our circumstances if they are not working in our favor.

Clearing physical clutter, stepping away from toxic people and environments, ensuring financial, mental and physical health are all things you can do to better your life and decreased mental clutter.

Past Troubles And Mental Clutter

We tend to ruminate on issues from the past and condemn ourselves over them. But that’s counterproductive; more often than not those issues are no longer relevant or were out of our control.

When you catch yourself ruminating, ask yourself if it’s necessary or useful and if you had a choice in the matter, to begin with. It will help you discern what matters, so you can go easier on yourself.

Using reminders
We use memory devices to offload our need to remember everything all the time. But these tools have slowly shifted from a source of calm to just another source of interruption.

For example, you're working and you suddenly hear a notification pop, reminding you of a meeting in 30 minutes. Your brain will go in the meeting mode and you won't be able to go back to the task you were doing.

Game On: Framework for gamification

Identify The Problems and address them like a game

Designing the Basic Framework

  1. Challenges - problems and challenges you face and habits you want to build.
  2. Activities - tasks you need to perform to overcome your challenges and build new habits.
  3. Rewards - points that will help you accomplish milestones and redeem rewards.
  4. Variable Rewards - it is okay to just receive smaller rewards every once in a while.

Assign points every time you accomplish a goal.

Maintain a progress system to help you see your progress to reaching your goals and unlocking rewards.

Paper clutter
Paperwork is one of the toughest forms of clutter to vanquish.

Often, it’s much more anxiety-provoking and draining than going through a clothes closet or a desk drawer.
