Do you struggle with keeping a clear mind? Has constant worrying about trivial things affected your performance? Then read on below to know how you can instantly clear your mind of anxious thoughts! So, is there any technique to clear your mind instantly?

Is There Any Technique To Clear Your Mind Instantly?

Life is hugely unpredictable. It is a roller coaster of emotions with positive and negative events coming up unannounced. As much as we wish we could take a sneak peek into the future, the truth is that nobody knows what is going to happen next. (Yes, not even the person who wrote your horoscope in today’s paper!) And this uncertainty and unpredictability can lead to quite a bit of anxiety and frustration.

When this instability of life is coupled with the modern man’s fast-paced lifestyle, you can imagine what happens. We are all constantly worrying about something or the other. Our minds work around the clock, with no break in between to catch a breath. And these endless and needless distressing thoughts certainly do not spell anything good. 

Having Too Much On Your Mind Directly Affects Your Performance And Productivity

When it comes to being productive, there is no greater enemy than a fogged-up mind. If you are always in a panic about what you have to do next and what you have already done, you lose your ability to focus. 

When you never stop to smell the roses, you fail to notice the tiny weeds growing in your garden that need your attention. A mind that is always occupied leads to tasks that are either done poorly or never even attempted in the first place!

Could You Learn To Clear Your Mind Whenever You Need To?

With that, it is quite clear that one needs a fresh mind to ensure a greater level of performance and productivity. But how can you get to that clarity of mind in the first place? Are there any tricks that can help you get rid of the upsetting thoughts that refuse to leave your head?

Truth be told, I am no stranger to relentless and pointless worrying of my own. And hence, I am always on the lookout for new tips and tricks that can help me free my mind of these. Here are a few ways that have helped me clear my mind and returned my ability to focus when I need to get things done.

#IChoose to talk my worries out to a trusted friend

What are friends for if not listening to what bothers you? Whenever I feel too overwhelmed about a particular situation and cannot bring myself to pay attention to the things that matter, #IChoose to confide in a trusted friend. 

Trust me; nothing makes your head feel lighter than talking to a dear friend who cares. Not only do you get to unburden yourself, but your friend can also offer some valuable advice on how to tackle the stressful situation.

And if you think your problems are too personal to talk about, confide in a diary instead!

#IChoose to sweat out my stress in the gym

Hitting the gym has also served me well when I need to stop thinking about something and move on. When you exercise your body, it has terrific impacts on your mind as well. One of these is clearing it off any worries that have been haunting you.

This one trick is not only from my personal experience but also has its basis in science! Physical exercise stimulates your brain to release good endorphins and lowers the level of cortisol. (For those who did not know, cortisol is the real culprit behind your stress.)

#IChoose to get the most out of my library membership

When period cramps do not let me hit the gym and exercise my body, #IChoose to do the next best thing, yep, you guessed it. I go to the public library and exercise my mind.

Reading a good book also works great at ridding your brain of intrusive thoughts that you would instead do without. Reading forces your mind to focus on other things, hence actively distracting you from that one thing you can’t seem to stop thinking about. By filling up your mind with the plot of the engaging thriller in your hand, it leaves little room for needless stress and worry.

#IChoose to get on the house chores that I have been putting off

Did you know that Bill Gates loves to wash his own dishes? Surprising, isn’t it? Why would someone with billions of dollars not employ a cleaner to do the dishes for him? You know that you would if you could afford one!

Well, when you do become a billionaire and can afford house help for your mansion, maybe you should reconsider this decision. Believe it or not, washing dishes – and other house chores we all hate to do – have numerous benefits for your mental health!

Repetitive, mundane chores such as washing the dishes or ironing clothes are great therapeutic activities. They help clear the haze and direct your focus to the important stuff. And this is the reason Bill Gates swears by washing dishes!

#IChoose to unplug myself and take a breather

A lot of individuals turn to their social media accounts and scroll mindlessly down their news feed when they feel too overworked. However, this rarely ever helps to get you out of mind fog. In fact, doing the exact opposite of this has some serious merit at clearing your head of unwanted thoughts.

For this reason, #IChoose to go on social media cleanse every few months. I switch off my phone (except an emergency number for my loved ones to reach me), unplug myself from technology, and decide to get closer to nature. Every time that I have done this practice, I have found myself with a head that is as clear as the sky on a sunny day.

#IChoose to get my yoga mat out of the cupboard

Many people recommend meditation to get over problems that never leave your mind. This technique has worked well for me too. Engaging in mindfulness exercises and deep breathing has excellent effects on your mental health.

If you, too, have a yoga mat stashed in one of your cupboards, I suggest that you take them out. In fact, doing yoga on the regular is even more beneficial for keeping a clear head.

#IChoose to refuse to give in to the negativity

Oftentimes, there is much more negativity around you than positive events happening. Especially in moments like this when the whole world is going through a deadly pandemic, it is easy to get overwhelmed. But if you consciously deny power to the negativity, it can genuinely help keep the bad thoughts out.

Negative thoughts are natural, and even okay in a certain amount. But when these are the only thoughts swarming in my head, I know that I need to fight them off. #IChoose to focus on every positive thing I can find, no matter how small. Though this is certainly not an easy thing to do, you learn to do it better with time. 

#IChoose to consciously let go of what I cannot control

Sometimes our mind just constantly thinks and worries about things that we cannot control. It may be the death of a pet, a road accident down the street, or even losing in a lucky draw at the carnival. We keep on thinking about how we can prevent the inevitable or how we could have done things differently. Though it is good to self reflect, excessive worrying about things that are out of your control is never good.

This is why #IChoose to let go of these things consciously. I tell myself that my input would not have changed a particular situation. I make sure I am not blaming myself for something that is not my fault. By doing this, I manage to not dwell on the unimportant stuff.

#IChoose to find refuge in my childhood pleasures

When my adult life with its adult problems gets too much for me, #IChoose to seek refuge in my childhood problems, this method has never failed me – at least as a temporary means to escape complex life problems.

Whether it is reading my Harry Potter books or enjoying an ice cream on a sunny afternoon, these little things I used to enjoy as a child clear my mind instantly.

Wrapping It Up

If you run a quick Google search, you will find plenty of advice on how to stop overthinking and focus on what needs your attention. However, it is essential to understand that each mind is, in fact, different. 

There is no one size fits all exercise you can do to get rid of your disturbing thoughts. You need to practice these activities on your own, and see which of these you like best!
