Don’t Forget to Declutter Your Mind
One of the things you notice when you start decluttering is how so much of the clutter in your house reflects the clutter in your mind. If you’re hanging onto to clothes that don’t fit, or the ugly vase your mother gave you for Christmas or the exercise bike you might get around to using, you don’t just have a problem with too much stuff. You have a problem letting go. Chances are you’re also hanging onto a whole bunch of bad feelings, ill-founded assumptions, old grievances and future worries.
If it feels good to declutter your house, it feels even better to declutter your mind. Here are some useful expert tips to make some space in your mind.
- Use some meditation techniques
You don’t have to do the full sitting on a cushion in a darkened room thing to benefit from meditation techniques. If you’re feeling overwound, some simple breathing techniques can help you calm down and focus. For a few minutes, focus only on your breathing and nothing else. If your mind wanders or gets back into the worrying groove, you must put that aside and come back to focus on your breath.
- Write it down
It can help to write down anything that’s on your mind. Once all those worries are down on paper, you can prioritize them and work out a plan to deal with them. You can also assess them to identify what’s essential and what isn’t. When you can see what’s important, you can focus your energy and free up some of that mental space!
- Stay in the present
Brooding over the past and worrying about the future take up a lot of space in your mind and achieve precisely nothing. Let go of regret over past mistakes or resentment of past slights and move on. Keep your focus on what you can influence right here, right now.
- Do one thing at a time
Multitasking is not only overrated (it’s very inefficient), it also leads to greater anxiety, and you never do any one thing properly. Focus on doing things methodically and thoroughly. As you finish one task, move onto the next.
- Control all the incoming data
We talk about being available 24/7 and the 24-hour news cycle, but there is only one person who can control that. You. You can choose to switch off your computer, smartphone, and tv and control the amount of data your brain is trying to process.
Decluttering your mind will pay off in all sorts of ways you hadn’t imagined. You will be more productive, less stressed and more motivated.
Midlife Crisis Blues
You thought it would never happen to you. Maybe you watched your mom or dad struggle with a midlife crisis and thought, “Ridiculous. That will never happen to me.” Until, it did.
However, all is not lost. A midlife crisis is a part of the human experience. Most importantly, not only can you survive it, you can thrive. The period of life that corresponds to a midlife crisis also has opportunities.
You’re well into your career, and the kids are out of the house. You have time, money, and fewer obligations. This period of your life has a lot of potential.
You can make some drastic changes to your life if you choose.
You can make a few adjustments and discover the life you were meant to live but couldn’t up to this point.
See Ya Stuff
The Dalai Lama once stated, “If one’s life is simple, contentment has to come. Simplicity is extremely important for happiness. Having few desires, feeling satisfied with what you have, is very vital; satisfaction with just enough food, clothing, and shelter to protect yourself from the elements.”
That same spiritual leader is one of the most influential people in the world, and you rarely see him without a beaming smile on his face. You see, that quote relates heavily to something that very few people have even heard of and that’s minimalism. Those who have come across the term before usually only have a vague understanding of what it is.
Now, the fact that you’re considering this program suggests that either you’re interested in what minimalism has to offer or are looking to achieve a minimalistic approach to life. The reason the Dalai Lama radiates such happiness is that he knows that life is much more than the items we purchase or the possessions we own. He understands that happiness is first found within, not from external factors.
We’re not in any way saying you should try to replicate the way that the Dalai Lama lives, but you can draw on some of his principles. You can utilize minimalism to evolve your life. If you’re new to minimalism, then not to worry, because we’re going to categorize the information in a way that beginners can easily understand. Contrastingly, if you’re already familiar with the philosophy and need some instruction, the content will also cater to you as well.
In this one-of-a-kind “See Ya’ Stuff: The Art of Minimalism” package, you’ll discover the true meaning of minimalism. You’ll also learn about everything that minimalism isn’t, so you can ignore the fables and how to assess your own life through the lens of minimalism. Finally, we have some expert, actionable tips that you’ll be able to incorporate into your own life straight away.
So, are you ready to become a sponge for knowledge and potentially transform your life into an existence overflowing with happiness?
