De-clutter your mind – Spring clean your life!

Do you often feel like you spend most of your time rushing around and getting nowhere?  Constantly feeling berated by your inner taskmaster can often take it’s toll on your physical and emotional well-being.

Too often, some of my clients ask, “but how can I start to initiate the changes I feel I need to make in order to feel  happier and more relaxed”.  The answer lies within, but the problem is, we don’t allow ourselves to hear it or we simply choose to ignore the signals our bodies give us….

Believe it or not, you can achieve far more or get more done, if you allow your mind to relax for at least 15 minutes a day.  That may seem like too much to ask, but what is the alternative?  Living in a fast paced and highly technological world means that people do not allow themselves to switch off – so would you rather lead a stress filled life or a stress-free life?

Have you ever considered how much time you spend on your mobile phone, calling friends, colleagues, or texting?  When you are not on your mobile, how much time do you spend on your tablet or at your computer?  Even if you are not technologically minded but still extremely busy and too busy to allow yourself enough time to relax, then consider, how much time and energy you give to others and tasks that really are not that important?

The time you give to yourself is VERY IMPORTANT.  Taking time to have breakfast in a relaxed state and then spend at least 5 minutes in mindfulness, can have a major impact on how you tackle the rest of your tasks throughout the day.   Choosing how to spend your time, rather allowing outside influences, to dominate your schedule, can also make a major difference to how you feel at the end of the day.

More importantly, your thought processes will also determine the state of your bliss – Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, ” a man is who he thinks about all day long” – so consider how much mind energy you give to negative thinking, like worrying about what you ultimately cannot change and instead taking control of your thoughts and deciding what you can change, in order to develop a balanced and  harmonious life.  The choice is yours – change doesn’t always happen instantly, and making changes, can often seem like too much of a chore.  However, choosing to de-clutter your mind and your life of things that are no longer important or that no longer serve or support you, can become liberating and will ultimately lead to a less stressed life.

So, don’t you owe it to yourself and to the people you care about to start making some positive changes and become aware of where your thoughts take you? 

Why not drop me a line and let me know how you get on, or if you need some support in making the changes you crave, then I will be happy to talk to you……..your life is a gift, so start living it in the present moment.  Forget what’s past, don’t worry about tomorrow,  enjoy your bliss and start to live your life fearlessly!
