Organizing Your Mindset
One popular definition of mindset is “a disposition, attitude or mood.” That being said, it makes sense that clearing your mind of clutter goes a long way in helping you get more organized.
When you’re not clear-headed, it’s very difficult to practice organizational skills.
Write Down Your Feelings
One of the best ways to clear your mind of clutter is to take the time to write down your feelings. You can either do this in a journal that you keep, or a piece of paper that you throw away once you’re finished. Recent studies indicate that jotting down negative thoughts really does help to clear your mind and make you feel better. Create a daily practice of journaling to regularly clear your mind.
More and more stressed-out individuals are using meditation to clear the clutter in their heads. When life is hectic, do you ever feel as though you’re having a non-stop conversation (with yourself) in your head? If so, it’s nothing to worry about.
Many people experience the same thing. Meditation allows you to focus on a single thing, which in turn helps to corral your thoughts when they start to wonder. It also gives you a time to practice letting go of thoughts to prevent rumination – one of the least productive things we can do.
Go For a Run or a Walk
Not only does running and walking help to eliminate a cluttered mind, it also benefits your body in several other ways.
Listening to music when you run or walk is even more beneficial. Why? A Ohio State University study recently discovered that when someone exercises with music, it activates the area in the brain that deals with a higher level of mental function.
Take a Nap
Taking a nap, even a short one, goes a long way in clearing up mental fatigue and clutter in the mind. Believe it or not, taking a ten-minute nap helps to increase both productivity and alertness.
Spend Time with a Pet
For most people, pets aren’t just animals – they’re beloved members of the family. Spending time with your favorite pet elevates your mood and makes it easier to get through the day.
In the event that you don’t have a pet, take a few minutes to watch one of the thousands of cute pet videos on the internet. You’ll get a dose of cuteness without any strings attached.
Do you have a better idea in regard to some of the ways to organize your mindset? Great! Finding what works for YOU is the key here.
Taking advantage of some of these tips should help you get more organized overall. You’ll soon see that this is beneficial to both your work and personal lives.
