For a blissful and happy life, it is required that we have an organized and spacious life. We can organize our spaces by decluttering our homes and offices. But, how do we declutter our lives? Is it possible at all? Yes! We can definitely declutter our lives by organizing out thoughts and decluttering our minds. With the kind of busy lives we are dealing with, we are always rushing from one thing to the other. As we are tackling different tasks, our mind or mental space is occupied with all these tasks and the related emotions. With all the thoughts piling, our mind gets cluttered that leads to stress and anxiety. As the days go on, and our busyness does not subside, we get even more stressed and get exhausted.
This gets even worse at times when we face personal problems. What happens is, our mind is occupied with thoughts of reality and some preconceived fictitious notions. We often struggle with these thoughts and it becomes challenging for us to come out of the stressful situations. To avoid such extreme stressful situations, we need to declutter our mental space from time to time. How do we do this? It’s pretty simple if we can follow these three ways.
Write – Writing our thoughts can be the best answer to all our worries. It’s the purest and the easiest forms of releasing stress. Writing down all our thoughts on a piece of paper works wonders and declutters our mental space easily. It is found out in a research that when negative thoughts are put down on a paper and burnt, the negativity of those thoughts is reduced and we tend to feel much relaxed.
Learn to say ‘no’: It is often seen through our experiences that when we don’t say “no” to people, we keep doing more things than that we can do which leads to stress piling up. Hence, we should learn to say a firm “no” for things that we can’t do to give ourselves time and energy to focus on more important things.
Do something creative: Indulging in some creative and fun activities will help in decluttering our mental space and giving us enough time for self-care and self-organizing. Creative activities prove to be extremely helpful in reducing stress and providing emotional relief.
Take information carefully: We get loads of information on a daily basis, but it is on us as to what kind of information we consume and what we reject. To keep our mind free of clutter, we should be cautious while taking information and should reject all that is unnecessary for us and adds to the clutter.
If you are one among those who have much to do but not enough time for everything and get overwhelmed on a daily basis, it’s time you declutter your mind and start living a fresh life.
