De-Clutter the Mind

We strive to be mindful but end up being confused, don’t we?

A cluttered mind is restless and unfocused. It tries to move in many different directions at once and the result is that very little gets done. Mental clutter can include all of the following: worrying about the future; ruminating about the past; keeping a mental to-do list; complaints, focusing on the negative, Having external distractions and constant sensory input and so on.

It’s time to let go of the mental habits that are keeping you from reaching your full potential. To build mental muscles and declutter your mind, you need to become intentional about where you place your attention and how you spend your time and energy. Only then can you unravel unhealthy thinking patterns that are keeping you stuck and your mind cluttered.

There are a lot of tricks that can help settle mind chatter. These psychological tricks like attempting cognitive distancing, cognitive defusion, practising self-acceptance, labelling things, focusing on direct experience, being in the present and so forth.

The goal isn’t to “empty” your mind—removing every thought, feeling, idea, dream, etc., would be impossible. Instead, it is to help you simplify your life and build new mental habits that increase your productivity, clarity, awareness, organization, and well-being.

"Your mind is a garden, your thoughts are seeds, you can grow flowers or weeds. "
