Have you ever felt overwhelmed with all the work that you have been doing? Does your brain feel tired? Are you having a hard time concentrating and focusing on your work? Chances are that you are suffering from mental clutter which is actually clouding your mind. This happens from time to time especially when we are facing a lot of stress. With that being said, it is important that we learn how to de-clutter our mind in order for us to become more focused with our work. But how can you do this?

The good news is that there are ways in which you can declutter your mind so that it will be easier for you to function at work and at home. Sounds good? Here are a few easy steps for you to try.

Deep breathing

There are times when we feel quite overwhelmed with the work that we do or whatever situation that we find ourselves in. And it is in these situations where deep breathing works well. Deep breathing is actually a habit that we should practice all the time wherein you stop what you are doing, take a deep breath and release it for several minutes, then observe what’s going around you. By being aware of your surroundings and the way your mind thinks, you will find it easier to de-clutter your mind.

Exercise

Another way for you to clear up your mental clutter is to make exercise part of your day. Incorporating exercise to your daily routine can help you relieve the tension that is causing your mind to become cluttered, your muscles too tensed, and the like. Exercising actually helps in increasing the amount of blood flowing in your body which includes delivering more oxygen to your brain. As you work out, you are also able to manage your weight and tone your muscles even.

Analyzing lessons

There are times when we just can’t help but go over the experiences that we had, wishing that we had done things differently, and so on. But instead of feeling sorry for ourselves because of it, it is much better that you analyze what happened, the actions that you did at the time, and what could you have done to prevent it or get a better response or result.

Act with intention

Before you buy something, do something, or answer something, consider your intentions. Do you really need to buy that pricey watch? Is moving to another work the best thing for you at the moment? Or does saying yes to a relationship is what you really want? Think about what your intentions are before you do something which is one way of de-cluttering your mind. Instead of buying something then regretting it afterwards, weigh the reasons why you think this item is good for you.

Visualize

If you’ve been paying attention to athletes, contestants, and the like, you will notice that there will always be a moment that they will be quieting their minds before they act. It is possible that at this moment, they are already visualizing what they want to do, and going for it. You too can do the same when it comes to the challenges that you are facing. Visualize the outcome that you want to happen and everything that you will do will be working your way to get it. 

As you can see, there are a lot of ways in which you can actually help de-clutter your mind on a daily basis so you won’t experience mental fatigue, tiredness, and the like. There are times when you will feel that you are overwhelmed by everything but with these steps, you will find that you can manage everything easily and with confidence.
