Yikes! Have you ever felt your mind so overloaded it spilled over into your mood? We have completely been there at some point in time. Life happens to all of us, that is why it is imperative to be selective in what takes up room in your head. The continuous goal is to operate in a manner that produces a certain space to improve your mood. Quite frankly, clutter is stressful and distracting.
Too much clutter is a sign that you are losing control. In this manner, your brain cannot function properly when it is processing junk. This makes it difficult to maintain relationships, work performance, and your overall health just to name a few. Unfortunately, the clutter represents a part of who you are, you may be unaware of this. You should start with structuring your life so that you can breathe knowing you are getting things under control.
Focus on the fear that is creating the clutter in your life. By confronting the reality, you can see it up close, so you are capable to carry out bold decisions. Reduce your stress by letting go of things that are consuming unnecessary energy to be used for something beneficial to you. Keep a journal of clutter needing to be removed from your life so that your mind can be liberated. Once you gain a visual representation of what needs to be done, you can create an action plan that works for you.
I constantly encourage my clients to not overwhelm themselves; one should start small. Maybe you may need to reconsider your routine to add more structure to your life. In doing so, you can rid of the chaos caused by spontaneous habits with no sense of direction. Whatever the reasons might be, identify them and take the necessary steps to improve your circumstances.
If you are having trouble getting started, allow a few minutes each day to work on a goal that will contribute to less clutter. As you progress, you can include more time, possibly another goal and before long…you are clutter-free. Decluttering should remain a priority for you. Stay committed to experiencing a clutter-free life. Imagine how your mood would improve knowing you are less sidetracked and presently living stress-free.
