HOW CAN I CREATE MENTAL SPACE WHEN MY MIND FEELS SO FULL?



Do you ever feel like your brain is going into overload?


And it’s just SO FULL you don't actually know what to do with any new information coming in?



It feels like your brain is suffocating.


About ten years ago I used to feel like this - A LOT.


I used to say to my friend, I need to take my brain out of my head and just put it in a jar and walk away :(


It was exhausting, and honestly looking back, I don’t know how I managed without the tools I use now, I really really don’t. I’m actually impressed that I kept my sanity with all that cr*p in my head.


Fast forward and I’m now so conscious of my mental space


I actively work to keep my mental load to a minimum, not because I’m not doing anything or I just sit in a cupboard all day (I can assure you I have as much to do as everyone else) I just make sure that I keep my mental space clear, organised and tidy and the difference it makes is unreal so I want to share with you some of the things I do that allow me to keep this mental clarity


Clearing mental space is really important if you’ve any sort of desires or goals you want to manifest, without that space and stillness you can’t receive the guidance for your positive inspired actions from your intuition, higher self or the divine, angels etc, whatever it is that you believe, when your conscious mind is full and in overdrive, your ideas are suffocated and you just can’t get into the flow



These are some of the tools that you can use that will help you tidy and clear your mental space


I’m assuming right now that you’re starting from a place of absolute overload, completely past capacity - basically - HELP !


Brain dump


The first thing you wanna do, whatever’s in your head, get it all down on paper.


Write it all down, everything, just write everything that you need to do, everything that’s bothering you, write lists, write more lists, just get it out of your head on to the paper.

It doesn’t need to be in any logical order, or make sense, it’s just coming out of you onto the page


This step is really important because it means that as we move on to the next part, your brain can actually relax knowing that you’re not going to forget anything, it’s all safely written down.


The next few things are things you’re going to want to implement over time, the more you do them and become aware, the better you’ll feel, although even from the very start you’ll start to notice huge changes almost immediately.


Meditate/quiet your mind


Create time to slow down.


When you’re super busy and overwhelmed, more things to do and slow things at that, seem like the last thing you want to do but MAKE THE TIME.


Make the time not find the time because, you just won’t find time, you have to make it


Swap some time on social media, skip a TV show, get up a few minutes earlier - however feels best for you and make sure that you commit to it and actually do it


Use the time you’ve created to meditate and quieten your mind.

Use a guided meditation if you find that your mind just jumps to your to do list or try breathwork instead but take a few minutes, ten or 15 to start with and just let your mind relax.
