Social media, work and life in general can get hectic sometimes and it’s easy for your mind to get cluttered with worries and negativity. I’ve come up with some ways to try and manage your thoughts and organise your mind.
1. Manage your online time
I’m sure we’ve all lost track of time when browsing the web in bed. To prevent you from losing track of time and to make sure you get enough sleep turn your Wi-Fi off when you get into bed. You’ll have a better nights sleep and you won’t be exhausted the next day.
2. Remove time-wasting apps
We’ve all got those apps that we go to when we’re putting off doing something. To boost your productivity and actually get things done remove all of those apps and then there’s no excuse for not doing your chores! You’ll be surprised at how much you can get done when you remove the distractions.
3. Unsubscribe from boring email lists
Literally billions of emails are sent everyday and it often feels like they all end up in my inbox, whether I asked for it or not! To save the countless hours you spend clearing your inbox just take the time to unsubscribe from those companies you’re not interested in hearing from anymore. You’ll thank yourself for it!
4. Make time for different activities
There’s at least three books on my shelf which I’d love to read but just never found the time to. It’s the same with music. There’s so many albums I’ve downloaded but not bothered listening to yet. Reading books and listening to music can give you the chance to relax and settle down after a long day.
5. Write a diary
Sitting down and thinking about your day could really help you to manage your thoughts and reflect on what you’ve done and how it’s made you feel. It doesn’t have to be pages and pages long, just some short notes will do. Plus it gives you an excuse to buy a cute diary.
6. Clear out old things
You could make so much more space in your room if you got rid of all of your old things that you don’t need anymore. It’s the same with your thoughts. Clearing out old negative thoughts can make space for new positive ones. Harbouring negative energy just brings you down and who’s got time for that?
7. Do something different
Most weekends me and Jord go into the city, usually Nottingham, but it’s always so busy! Going for a quiet walk in the countryside with someone you care about can give you the chance to actually spend time with them instead of rushing to catch the bus or fighting your way through the shops.
These changes won’t work for everyone but I hope they at least give you some ideas as to how you can start and de-clutter your mind. Let me know how it goes if you decide to make any of these changes and if you’ve got any other ideas please share them in the comments!
