The Deceiving Energy-Drainer, is it Haunting You?
Are there days that sometimes leave you so tired but then you did not really do anything exhausting that day? Are there moments that make you lethargic and weary even after a good night’s rest? This weariness is caused by life’s clutter; it may be emotional, physical or mental clutter.
The nature of clutter is very deceiving; it does not hit you like a truck but is slowly creeping into your life like the bees that slowly build their homes in your yard. One day, the clutter and the bees just hit you so suddenly it leaves you clueless and helpless. Clutter slowly eats on our energy, health and even creativity.
Physical clutter is not relaxing for the eyes; it gives you unnecessary work to think about. It can mean that your home or parts of it are not organized or you just have too much things at home that you could no longer control them. It takes up space that you need, if you want to work you need to clear them up, it makes you feel guilty for leaving such a mess, and most of all, you have to look at it the messy way it is.
If you want to have a clear and serene mind then you must also have the same characteristics for your environment. Whether you are consciously affected by the clutter or not, it still demands attention from you and eats energy that is to be spend on health and fitness.
Mental clutter is also destructive. It affects the way you react to the things around you or the things that you do. Sometimes it clouds judgement and makes you live in auto-pilot.
Living in auto-pilot is just living and not having a life. You react to certain things in a certain way without even thinking of other creative ways of dealing the situation. This causes stagnation and leaving you discontented with life.
So, what are ways in de-cluttering your life on aspects that you can and cannot see?
On Physical Clutter
- Take time to assess your home, go to each room and touch the things individually. Assess their usefulness in your life.
- Think hard of why you bought the thing in the first place and what can it do now for you. Also think of other people like your neighbours or friends, they might need it more than you do,
- Ask suggestions from friends or family.
- Try and remove some things that clutter your home and avoid buying new ones.
On Mental Clutter
- Take time to breathe and focus on it.
- Pay attention to your thoughts: are these really necessary to think of right now?
- If confronted with daily problems do not panic or get nervous. There is always a solution for everything. Always ask: Is there anything else I can do about this?
- Take time each day to evaluate yourself and your thoughts.
Do not immerse yourself in mindless Social Media interaction
Minimize gossip or meaningless conversations with others
Do you like to Procrastinate?
Well… Let me answer that later. So the problem is: rather than tackling your issues or chores that need to be done, you procrastinate. This is not healthy since procrastination just adds to the stress. List your chores for the day and do them. Do not be tied to the things that needed to be done but do it and move on with life.
That is all I have for today, hope everyone has an awesome day!
