Having too many things on your mind can lead to mental overwhelm, which can lead to procrastination, stress, anxiety, and even forgetfulness.
It can make you unproductive as the more things you have on your mind the less you actually get done.
Here are 3 tips to clear your mind and get you back on track mentally.
1. Be present. Take in every detail of the now.
What do you see, smell, hear, taste, touch, experience? Being totally absorbed in the present takes you away from a full mind.
The practice of this is truly mind-blowing. For those that meditate you know what I’m talking about! You can also achieve this through pure memory training (Which is also like meditation).
2. Step into flow state by doing something you love.
Enjoy playing guitar? Reading a book? Gardening? Find something that will make you lose track of time.
3. Be grateful.
Gratitude is another powerful practice that can not only take you away from mental overwhelm, but ground you, give perspective, and overall happiness. What are you grateful for?
