4 Steps to Declutter your Mind for Happiness


  1. 3 Limit the information you consume

    Information overload is a real thing. There’s so much going on at any moment that if we want to stay up-to-date, we risk losing our sanity. Social media doesn’t make this any easier either. Every time you scroll down your feed on one network, you might feel overwhelmed by seeing all the stuff being posted, you might want to read more about it all, might feel bad about something, or might start comparing your life to how others are living theirs and feel depressed. That’s just five minutes of someone’s day. Then you open your inbox and see tons of news emails, each with different links that make you want to know more. Later in the day, you receive even more information from all types of sources, other people bother you with their problems, devices are everywhere, someone texts you, or you receive notifications every 15 minutes, and that just never stops. Unless, you decide to put an end to it. You can’t have peace of mind with all these facts in your head, 90% of which are absolutely unimportant. So, here’s the solution: • say a big “no” to most of these sources of information • set a limit for using social media and checking email • don’t read stuff that doesn’t concern you or the industry you work in • unsubscribe from all newsletters and only check out the sites that truly provide meaningful information • practice emptying your mind a few times during the day
  2. 4 Replace expectations with acceptance

    Think about this. We expect so much from ourselves and those around us, that this prevents us from being who we are and taking risks, from enjoying other people’s company, and being grateful for having them in our life. Expectations are bad. We are never satisfied and there’s always something else to expect. So let’s ditch them. And replace them with something better – acceptance. I’m talking about accepting yourself for who you are and smiling for this, but also knowing you can always improve if you work hard and believe in yourself. I’m talking about accepting every person in your life as an individual, and not waiting for them to react in a certain way, not judging or blaming them. Simply being there for them, accepting their lifestyle and qualities, and appreciating having people who love you. That small change will make a big difference in all of your relationships and will make you happier every day because you won’t be expecting so much, and won’t be stressing over not meeting these expectations. Now that you know why simplicity is good for us in general, and that it’s also beneficial to our peace of mind and happiness, you won’t live your days unconsciously anymore. Take one little step today, like saying “no” to a thought from the past, quieting the voices in your head before bed, or smiling for what you already have, and see the instant transformation in your mind.
