Life can be full of worries, stresses, and endless things to do. Every day we are bombarded with thoughts of circumstances, plans, commitments, hardships or even ideas. As a result, the mind becomes cluttered with thoughts. Unfortunately, very little gets done when your brain is moving in many different directions all at once. If you long for some semblance of calm and clarity, then teach yourself how to free up mental space. With that in mind, here are 5 tips for decluttering your mind that you can start to practice today.
1. Write It Down
Write down appointments, things you want to look up, ideas for future projects, phone numbers, reminders or anything that comes to mind but does not need your immediate attention. Doing so is a great way to release pent-up thoughts. This will also help you to stay focused on issues that are more important without having to fill your head with everything you need to do and remember. Use a notebook or digital app to take notes.
