1. Meditate

Find a quiet place for approximately 10 minutes a day. There are so many meditation apps around you could either download something to guide you, find something on Youtube or just lose yourself in your own silence. Whatever it is make sure you stick to it every day.

2. Keep a journal

Writing things down and getting them ‘out of my head’ always helps me to de-clutter my mind. This is especially true at night when you have your mind full of things ‘to-do’. Keeping a notepad and pen by your bed to jot things down is something you just have to try to see how effective it is at clearing your mind for sleep.

3. Exercise

Exercise not only reduces the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and stroke but it also helps clear your mind and improves your thinking skills. Once you have released those ‘feel good’ endorphins you will be much more able to tackle difficult projects or even just start a project you’ve been meaning to get to.

4. Write a list

Go around the house and write a list for each room of things you need to get done in that room. Tackle one thing at a time, maybe even one or two things each week but when they are all written down you won’t have all the jobs taking up unnecessary ‘mind space’.

5. Relax

Do something for yourself every day. Take a walk along the beach, go shopping for something for YOU, read a book, do a Yoga class, take a bike ride. Think about what you love and do it, often. It doesn’t have to be the same thing every day. As long as it’s something for you!
