I hope you have had a good day! In my case it feels like last week was a little bit of a mess. But that's OK because it made me realize it's time to do a little spring cleaning in my life. It might sound a little strange to spring clean one's life but do you know what, I think I would be better of doing it more often to be honest.
The reason I do this is actually because I’ve been juggling insanely too many things at once. Don’t get me wrong I love all the things I do, and that is the problem but after a while it starts wearing you down little by little. It is when I start feeling this that I do an inventory of my life and start cleaning so that I can avoid bad patterns and maintain my health. Do you have any tricks for handling such situations? 💚
Here are my tips on how to cleanse your thoughts and prioritize better.
1) Do an inventory of your life: Who, What, Why? Who do I spend all my time with, what do I do with all my time? Why do I do what I do? Once you've made that inventory, you'll get a clearer picture of where all your time goes and it should make it easier to prioritize.
2) Write, Write and Write Even More! Writing down your thoughts, concerns and even everything you are grateful for can help cleanse your thoughts and structure the little mess.
3) Find a form of exercise that helps you clear your mind: For me, it's HIIT training or running (preferably outside). There are also so many other benefits of exercising!
4) Talk to a friend and ask them to keep asking you "why" to all your answers. It can help you think a little deeper and give you a deeper understanding of things and then it becomes easier to see when doing things that are unnecessary, which adversely affect you or maybe just do not need to be prioritized right then.
Try one of these tips and let me know what you think and if it works for you as it has done to me!
