Declutter your mind, this can help you to think more clearly, make better decisions, and feel happier. 

Decluttering isn't just for Spring Cleaning. It's also essential to your well-being.

We live in the Digital Age where information, emails, and notifications are endless. At all hours of the day, we are reachable, which means we can feel like we're juggling all aspects of our lives at once. This juggling act, however, can lead us to feel stressed out, overwhelmed, or burnout. 

What's more, is that when our minds are cluttered, we lose our inner child. Our inner child is also our inner guide which lets us know which decisions are truly best for us. We feel less playful and less creative overall.

Declutter Your Mind In Just 10 Minutes

Sometimes it's difficult to know how to declutter your mind. But, with tools and practice, you can learn how to declutter your mind on a daily basis. And, the best part is is that you can do this in just ten minutes per day. 

With just 10 minutes a day, you can feel more clear-headed. You can also feel more connected to yourself, your inner child, and your loved ones. Use the following steps to declutter your mind in 10 minutes. 

1. Act Like a Kid

Kids mostly live in the present moment. They don't worry as much about the future or the past, and instead make the most of every experience. They are carefree and as a result more creative.

Act like a kid and be in the present moment. Allow yourself to be imaginative by drawing, painting, or writing stories. 

2. Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is an ancient herb that helps to reduce stress, improve brain function, and increase energy levels. Taking an ashwagandha supplement on a daily basis can help to declutter your mind by giving your brain the nutritional support it needs. 

3. Meditation

When we meditate, we don't seek to rid ourselves of thoughts. This is a common misconception, one which makes people feel frustrated when they can't "clear their minds."

The true goal of meditation is non-judgemental awareness and concentration. Mindfulness meditation is one meditation method that can help us to declutter our minds. Instead of focusing on the thoughts and the stories in our minds, we can instead focus on the breath. 

When a thought gets our attention, we can gently return to the breath with our non-judgemental awareness. 

4. Keep a Journal

Sometimes the best way to declutter is just to purge! Keeping a journal is a great way to get out thoughts that are crowding our minds. Write in a journal how you feel, what you're thinking, and what you need to do. 

Putting everything on paper will then free up your mind to think of other things. Including solutions to your current challenges!

Declutter Your Mind, Free Your Spirit

When you declutter your mind, you'll feel freer as a result. You'll also discover more confidence in your ability to make decisions that best support your goals.
