Mental Clarity


Life is stress. 
Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

All jokes aside, life can get pretty stressful at times. It might seem like we don't know where we are going in life or that we are not progressing at the rate we want to, or it might just feel like we have an endless to-do list which is getting on top of us. 

Last year I did a post on Why It's Okay To Not Know What To Do With Your Life, which seemed to go down pretty well. So I thought I'd come back with another personal self-development post on mental clarity and how to see clearer when it seems like stress and our thoughts are getting too much.

Our mind is constantly fogged with thoughts. These can be positive, negative or just a bunch of mental notes. Writing everything that's on our mind down on a piece of paper allows you to see things much clearly and allows you to pinpoint just what might be causing your stress. Maybe it's the assignment deadline you've got coming up, maybe you're frustrated because you haven't stated something you said you were going to start, maybe you're anxious about something that might of happened or may happen. It can be hard to analyse what's going on in your head because there can be so much going on in there, so writing it all down in a way that best suits you (journaling, to-do list, etc) can help massively. Once you have it all written down in front of you, you can then create an approach to address everything. 

"Clear space, clear mind". This is coming from the queen of messiness. 
If your surroundings are unorganised and messy then it will subconsciously affect the way you are feeling and perform. Removing clutter from your space will make you feel more relaxed and help you focus on what it is you need to be doing. I know that when I try to do work in a messy space, I always have the thought in the back of my mind that I need to clean up - a subconscious distraction which could be avoided! 

I hold my hands up that I'm one of those people who wakes up and checks social media first thing in the morning and I know that this habit has an affect on the rest of my day. Whether you know it or not, social media makes us think that we need to do better to keep up with everyone else. Social media can also be full of bad or even fake news- something we don't want to be starting our day with. Not only first thing in the morning, but also late at night can be bad to check social media. For most of us, when we are lying in bed our thoughts can be on overdrive and we think deep into silly little things. Checking social media, for me, is the worst time to check it because I always find myself comparing my days to other peoples or even comparing myself to others which can start a chain of thoughts on the way I look, how I act and what I am doing in life. One main tip to help you not check social media as much is to turn off your notifications. If you aren't reminded to check your apps, then you are less likely to do it!

We all go through periods of being down and stressed, but it is important to remember...

  2. This is such an important topic and a great reminder to everyone! Writing our thoughts and feelings down definitely helps us to make better sense of them. I always used to do it to help me get better clarity of a situation or to really tune inwards to how I'm feeling. Now I can do it with such ease just by simply being with my thoughts but this has only come from practicing through writing x

  3. A lot of drug rehab facilities here is another "one size fits all" approach, applying their very own ideologies on the patients. These drug rehab facilities impose a construction rather than simply applying a broad spectral range of treatment in battle against addiction. In comparison to the, holistic drug rehab looks at the entire range of symptoms and then applies treatment where necessary. rehabnear.me
