5 Tips That Can Help You In Freeing Up Your Mental Space

5 Tips That Can Help You In Freeing Up Your Mental Space

Negative thoughts can sometimes drain our mental energy to the T. It also serves as one of the biggest signs for freeing up your mental space. 

Have you ever found yourself lying in your bed in the middle of the night trying to get sleep, but for some odd reason you just can’t switch your mind off? Do hundreds of anxiety-inducing voices keep playing in your mind, making it difficult to breathe?

Trust me, all of us have been in situations where the noises of our mind get too overwhelming; and even though we feel mentally and physically drained, we can’t seem to get hold of our trail of thoughts. Our minds often get tangled with such messy thoughts that mental exhaustion starts creeping in.

Most of the time, we hold on to thoughts and experiences that cause us pain. Not very long ago, I used to often find myself replaying past events in my mind and overthinking about the same. I particularly held on to the experiences which caused me pain and used to overthink how things could have been different. Little did I realize that I was fostering negativity, hurt, anger, guilt, and whatnot.

I found myself getting immersed in a lot of negative energy, which didn’t let me sleep at night. I found it extremely difficult to move on from the haunting experiences of my past traumas. While I thought giving myself some time to heal the pain is the only way out, I couldn’t have been more wrong!

The more I ignored these feelings, the more entangled I got into the chains of negative thoughts which started getting overwhelming. Then, I decided to get a grip on my mind and unclutter some space for my mental peace.

If you have been experiencing something similar then, the first question you need to ask yourself is whether this continuous overthinking is causing you any good or not? Most of you would admit that these thoughts are not productive in any way.

It is important to realize that the more negative emotions occupy space in your mind, the more likely are these thoughts to seep into your lives causing you stress and anxiety. With endless worries regarding circumstances clouding our minds, unfortunately, we end up getting very little done. To get everything in order, calmness of mind and a balanced psyche is needed.

If You Long For Clarity And Calmness, Here Are 5 Tips For Freeing Up Your Mental Space

1. Keep your physical environment clean

Evidence suggests that physical clutter makes it difficult for individuals to deal with mental clutter. Disorganization tends to cause cumulative harm to your brain.

Studies have proven that physical clutter induces a higher level of cortisol (stress hormone). This can be extremely taxing on not only physical but also mental health. Moreover, the excessive stimuli exhaust the brain further by making it work overtime.

2. Practice letting go of the past

Mind clutter is generally related to incidents and experiences from the past. I believe most of us have these mental compartments which are filled with thoughts of every missed opportunity, every instance of hurt, every mistake we have made, regrets, trauma, and so on.

It is essential to recognize that if memories of the past are weighing us down, discarding those memories can be the best thing to do. Engaging in self-care is probably the best thing to do.

Allow your mind to accept whatever has happened in the past and make peace with it. Be mindful though, you don’t want to be too harsh on yourself. With the negative emotions gradually flushing away from your system, you can feel your mind getting more relaxed.

3. Get your priorities sorted

Engaging in rigorous multitasking is potentially one of the most harmful practices we do. Even though in this fast-paced world, we hardly have any other option; when we engage in too many activities at the same time we generally lose focus. Juggling between one task to another results in our brain racing and getting drained out soon.

Moreover, the final outcomes of the activities lack precision since we don’t pay attention to details. Trying to process too much information also clogs our minds and we feel more stressed. If you want to avoid all these complex outcomes, you need to prioritize the activities and information which are most essential for you.

4. Maintain a Journal

Even though it may appear cliché, but trust me, this tip is probably the most effective one. Whenever you feel burdened and drained out by too many emotions, it is important that you let it all flow.

Now, I understand that you may not be comfortable discussing what you are feeling with others. Sometimes, it gets difficult to share and make them understand what you have been going through. Writing your feelings down is almost equivalent to taking the trash out of your home.

5. Meditate

Whenever you feel too restless or mentally exhausted, it might be a red flag from your brain indicating an immediate need for mental quiet. It is important that you adopt a ritual to clear out the fog hovering around your brain. Manage time from your busy schedule just to breathe for a while.

Focus on your thoughts and try regaining mental energy. When start practicing meditation, our negative energies start having lesser control over us and we get the freedom to respond to positive aspects of our lives.

Endnote

Initially, you may find the tips difficult to follow. It is important that you remain determined and stick to it. Most important thing is to love yourself and believe that you can get better control of your life. You will see that you are being able to celebrate every little victory and achievement in your life when you are able to focus more.

I Breathe In The Sauntering Air That Collapses My Being

I breathe in the sauntering air that collapses my being,I breathe through the crevices of my existence unseen.Uncertainty in its yonder strikes in bolt on the scars that nobody sees,Redemption that loves, redemption that is free, find me in the depths of my poetry.

Tales of lust ridden in smeared touches that belie,Entreated with envy, the visions of victory lie.To be or not to be in a question that yet lies,For I yearn for a world where fond passion never dies.

Enclasped in the cage of the deemed duty,Bounded in her vows, she forgot she was a thing of beauty.In a realm we live, where amour in its truth fails to stand tall,She, tired of her existence, submerges herself into the beauty that her dreams enthrall.
