Decluttering your mind starts with your intent – you need to WANT to make changes first before you can address the imbalance. Here is how you do this:
1. Stop putting things off- By putting things off you only make matters worse and add to the stress levels you probably already experience. I have found that by addressing the biggest task of my working day first I generally get a lot more done.
2. Stop spreading yourself too thin-Do you really have to be a member of all the social networks considered hip today? Try to reduce the number of platforms, memberships, networks you join and enjoy more mental freedom as a result. Do only those you have passion for.
3. Stop the multiple distractions-Most of us are exposed to a number of daily distractions that stop us from doing what we NEED to do. Close your email inbox, log out of Skype, switch off your mobile phone and just concentrate on the task you do right now. You will be surprised how much more you get done – without the stress – by limiting distractions.
4. Stop and breath-How often do you stop breathing when you are in a stressful situation? Learn to breathe deeply into your stomach, do yoga, mediate or square breathing. You will be rejuvenated and ready to tackle the most complex task afterwards.
5. Stop procrastinating-Ask yourself why you have been putting it off. What can you tackle and what can you let go of? When you’re clear on what you definitely has to be done, make a plan and get to it.
6. Stop worrying-There is nothing constructive about worrying – it won’t help you avoid the outcome you’re worrying about and it’ll destroy your ability to enjoy the present.
7. Stop the anger and forgive-When somebody hurts you badly, it’s a normal response to feel anger, and to not want to forgive. Maybe the other person doesn’t deserve forgiveness, but don’t you deserve to move on and leave the pain behind?
8. Stop saying yes-Say no to people and activities that drag you down. Instead, surround yourself with people who uplift you and do things that make you feel great!
Decluttering your mind is easy with the right conviction and intent. By doing so you will regain your inner peace, work better and experience more satisfying relationships
