10 Ways to Cleanse Your MIND for the New Year

fit friday Jan 10, 2020

This Fit Friday tip is about mental fitness. We are well into the new year and I’m feeling great. I have plans and goals on track, and when I compare how I felt last year at this time, it’s a complete 180. Last year, the chaos, excitement and distraction of the holidays had passed, and I was left still having to forge through my day to day life without Jason. Plus, I had some big home repairs including replacing my AC units, which was a daunting task/expense to take on alone. I spent the past year focused on mental health and getting my mind right, and I have a few easy steps for you to take to cleanse your mind, get it right, and then tackle your goals.

Did you know clutter is a leading cause of stress? According to Psychology Today, “Messy homes and work spaces leave us feeling anxious helpless, and overwhelmed. Yet, rarely is clutter recognized as a significant source of stress in our lives.” So what are we waiting for, let's get rid of the clutter!

Here are 10 easy steps you can take to start de-cluttering your space, so you can de-clutter your mind:

  1. Organize your junk drawer. Throw away every. single. pen. that doesn’t work.
  2. Organize your phone apps into categories or folders, and delete unused apps off your phone.
  3. Go through your closet and donate clothes you don’t wear or that don’t fit.
  4. Unsubscribe from store email lists that don’t provide you value.
  5. Clean your fridge and pantry. Toss all the expired food and organize what’s left into sections that make sense, i.e. put all of the kids’ snacks together, drinks together, etc.
  6. Clear off your kitchen counter. Bonus – put a bowl of fruit out for easy access to healthy snack choices.
  7. Clear off your computer desktop and do the update that’s been pending for 305 days.
  8. Clean your work area. Organize it and even rearrange it so it makes more ergonomic sense.
  9. Clean out your wallet. Sayonara, receipts from 2017.
  10. Go for a 30 minute walk. Notice everything around you – trees, buildings, houses, animals, etc. It’s beautiful out there.

Taking small steps to de-clutter and organize really goes a long way. These tasks won't take a huge amount of time, and you'll feel a sense of accomplishment when you finish. Every time you open the place, area, drawer, room, etc. you organized, you'll feel a renewed sense of relief in the simplicity of what you're looking at, rather than the chaos it was before.
