How To Declutter Your Mind

mindful

Our mind tends to collect a lot of information from the littlest things such as reading a poster on the street to the more extreme information that affects us deeply. And trying to juggle all that information from personal to work information can be overwhelming. It gets so bad that we can often end up in a terrible self loathing mood and can affect us physically and mentally

Fun fact: Did you know that the amount of information we store in our head is limitless.

Which means that we can store a lot of information in our head. This is why it is required to declutter our minds once in a while, so we can have a clear open mind to receive new information that we want to recieve.

Fun Fact: Did you know your physical space, affects your mental space.

So if your space is filled with junk and items piling up every where you look, its more than likely your head is filled with the same overwhelmed sensation of feeling cluttered.

I’m here to share a few tips on how to declutter your mind.

Tips

1. Write it down- Express what’s on your mind, this can take form of writing in a journal, making a list of stuff you need to do or if your more of the creative type, why not try and draw what’s on your mind.

2. Breathe– The use of our breath is so magnificent we tend to not give a lot of credit to it. A method that helps me, is to breathe in and visualise all the thoughts that have been causing me stress rise up until it can not go any further and then on the out breath, releasing any information that doesn’t cause me positivity, growth or doesn’t support me in any way. Continue to inhale and exhale for about 3 sessions and I guarantee after that last breath, you’ll feel lighter and your head will be clearer.

3. Declutter your physical space– Like I said before your physical space reflects your mental space, if the physical space is too cluttered it means its time to clean up. Tidying up can be very boring and tedious so why not try putting on some music on or light a scented candle to make you feel good.

  1. I absolutely hate a messy space, it really makes me angry when I’ve left a mess around the house. I can’t think with it at all! So I definitely understand a good de-clutter!

    I love writing things down too. I think about so many things in one day that I’ll have forgotten my best idea if I don’t jot it down somewhere. My desk at work is coated in post it notes!

    1. I agree with that, I can’t leave stuff messy because that will be on my mind until I get back home lol.
      Yesss I thought it was just me who has to write my ideas down in my phone because I have so many ideas that swirl around my head. Sometimes I don’t even look at them for months and then something happens and then I see it and I’m like oooo this is great hehe xxx

  2. I love this post, Lia! And I fully agree with everything you’ve said. Everything around you effects your mindset so much.. Earlier this year I decluttered my wardrobe and got rid of 5 giant bags of clothes and it was the best feeling ever.. xxx

  3. You’re so right about decluttering your space to clear your mind. Every time I start to feel overwhelmed with what’s in my head, cleaning my room usually helps. And I love writing things down, it never hurts and you can just erase it/throw it away later if you don’t need it anymore. Great post Lia!
