What is decluttering?

The human brain is still undiscovered for the most of its part. While we don’t know much of its complexities, we do sometimes have some complex things going on in there. These things weave themselves into one another to create utter chaos. At such times our mind gets filled with a lot of things which it shouldn’t have. Its such times we need to declutter our mind.

Why?

When our mind gets cluttered, it has several bad effects. These start small, but if they are not properly taken care of they can potentially grow and trouble you. They cause various effects like lack of decisive capacity,low-temper, degradation of performance in every aspect of your self and much more things. which is why it is something probably should be taken care of.

The cause- Identifying the problem.

Research says that we think about 60k thoughts a day. Every person thinks differently. That’s why there are different causes for everyone to feel the need to declutter his/hers mind.

Stress due to negativity

We have our own low times. Its okay to feel sad or disappointed. but if these emotions are allowed to have space in our mind they create havoc and causes stress triggers. These emotions can be due to various states like depression, anxiety, fear and many more.

Work

Of course! We work in different circumstances and more importantly, we have different kinds of yelly bosses. It is completely natural to feel stressed while working which is also the reason why it is important to stay away from stress as much as possible.

Self- doubt

Often we come across various ideas and beliefs. These may be in contrast with what you already believe in. This causes you to question your own beliefs. That’s why you need to clear on the inside.

Following are some proven most effective to declutter your mind-

Journals

Since your mind is greatly unorganized, let’s start making your schedule(including your thought processes)by keeping track of them. Journals are a great way to keep track of your emotions, schedule and everything that comes in between. There are various techniques you can use right from now

Grattitude log

To overcome your anxiety you may create a gratitude log to keep track of the beautiful things and relations and emotions and everything that you have. Read those every single day and add new items to your list every day. They will tremendously help you in keeping yourself optimistic as you notice only whats god inside of you.

Fast-o-thoughts

This is a 20 minutes exercise to get yourself to know what exactly are you thinking by getting it on paper.

Set the timer of 20 minutes. Take a deep breath and start thinking for like 30 seconds. just after 30 seconds start writing thoughts you are thinking at that particular moment. Start at 00:30 to 20:00 without a break. Just do it. This is a great way to identify your trigger points and deal with them more clearly.

Share

Human relations are the most amazing things in the world. They can heal any type of wounds in the heart. No matter how deep they are. That’s why sharing with your loved ones what you are feeling will help you declutter a lot. It’s not silly or even cheesy to share things.  According to the research interviews conducted by me it proved to be 71% more effective when done right away. So find the people where you can share your emotions.

You can also use various online platforms for this. And don’t forget, my email Id has its doors always open for you.

Love is the strongest positive emotion.

Media Intake

There are 7 billion people out there! Everyone thinks differently. Everyone has their own principles, values and even sense of humor. when we continuously watch those different series, those different articles(including this one!) There will be much clutter inside your mind. you will have a tough time making decisions because there is a lack of root principles. So to avoid that, stop watching TV, Netflix and whatever you do which has the potential to make your mind chaos.

Zone out

Go out for a walk, not just because you want to take your dog for one but because you need to. Just go out there and observe the things around you, preferably try to not to listen to music. Just observe what’s going on. This will help you a lot to remove those unwanted and unimportant thoughts. It will free up some space in your mind.

You may want to do exercise while going out for a walk. It is proven to double the effectiveness of the method.

If for some reason you are not able to go out, then don’t worry we got you covered. You can stay home and declutter your mind with triple the effectiveness. You can meditate. Don’t try to skip this one! I repeat don’t scroll down! Meditating is nothing but breathing. You may breathe any way you please. Just take deep breaths for a little while. If you don’t want to do meditation fine! Just breathe!

Relax

Do nothing at all! Probably the best way! Just take a break. Do nothing. Just look at the sunset or just sleep or – go through- no, don’t do that. In fact, don’t do anything. Just relax! Because sometimes,
