Top 5 Ways to Clear Your Mind
After you had a hard day or week at work or at school the first thing you want to do is to relax and get off the problems and the stress out of your head. Some people even though do everything to relax their bodies, they simply can’t relax their minds and that is much worse than a tired back and legs.
In order to clear up your mind you first really need to want to do that. No meditation, nature hiking session or simple listening to music can help you if you are still thinking about your horrible boss or the hard exam that you aren’t sure you will pass. Focusing on helping your own self is the first step to the final goal – clearing and easing your mind. You don’t have to do really a lot – just doing the things that you love, get rid of those you don’t and be constant in your own wish to be peaceful.
Here are five suggestions or ways to clear your mind.
#1. Make a list of tasks
If you have a lot of things to remember, then write them down in a list rather than keeping them all stored in your head. Doing this will help to declutter your mind by allowing it to ‘empty’ from the things that aren’t extremely important. Making a list on your computer is a good idea. This will make you be less likely to lose your list and will be able to add or delete items easily. This way you can set your computer up to give you a reminder message when you need to complete a particular item on your list. Also, you won’t have to have the feeling that you have had forgotten something – everything would be put down.

#2. Write a diary or keep a blog
If you have worries, bad days, if you are upset nothing can help you get easier than writing those things down in a diary. You can start a blog (as the Internet gets more a necessity than a luxury, these things are also really great). It can help you put everything into some kind of perspective, plus you wouldn’t have to bother with hiding the diary. Writing all your thoughts down clears up space in your head, so that you will be free to use your mind for more satisfying and meaningful reflections. Simply set aside a certain amount of time each day for your writing session in order to regularly declutter your mind. Your diary or blog will also act as a good source for when you need to look back and find out when you did specific things. If you are interested in starting an online journal or a blog, there are a lot of tools available to you that may be helpful. Blog platforms such as WordPress, Blogger, LiveJournal are ideal sites to start your blogging experience.

#4. Just do it !
One of the worst things for stuffing up your mind is procrastinating tasks that you have to do. They just sit there in your head and the thought of them tortures you so you can never focus on another task that you are doing at the time. You really need to just do whatever it is you need to do as soon as possible. This way you can get it out of your mind and focus on the next task. If you don’t do this, you’ll often put more energy into thinking about finishing your tasks instead to finish them really.
