Want to look like Jonah Hill over here? Then keep reading 🙃
So, do you ever feel like you have a web browser open up inside your mind? Like you have 19 browser tabs open and you aren't able to close any of them?
Or maybe you feel like your mind's on a treadmill and won't stop running with thoughts?
Either way, if you're trying to get more focus and more mental clarity, to get sh*t done for the day, or just have a smile that's brighter than Jonah Hill's - then this post is for you.
These are three things you can implement RIGHT NOW. If you're after three bigger lifestyle changes, then I've got you covered over here - 4 Lifestyle Changes to Achieve Mental Clarity.
Unsubscribe From Email Lists
Unsubscribe from emails, which you have subscribed to a long time ago, which don't align with the person you are anymore today or just simply, waste your time reading.
I used to subscribe to a lot of clothing brand email's as I always wanted to know when they released new clothing or had any upcoming sales (I mean, who doesn't want dope clothes at a bargain price right??)
But, having the latest clothes at bargain prices doesn't really bother me anymore - it also doesn't align with the person I am becoming today and quite frankly, takes up space in my inbox. So, see ya later Nike.
Just to add this to the mix - I don't really enjoy reading unless I feel like I'm reading something which is going to add value to my life, so all those wasteful seconds reading subject lines of emails to try and figure out what the whole email before opening it and IF opening it is going to be worth my time at all, is gone. Now, when I wake up, I only have emails in my inbox from people I have consciously subscribed to that I know will add value to my life in some way shape or form with their email. Think of it as a detox, but for your mailbox 😊 #MentalClarity.
Set Your Intentions For The Day
Be intentional in everything that you do, that includes setting your intention for any given day. Write them down, this will help with your mental clarity game. When you have a lot of things going on in your mind it can be easy to forget. Writing it down serves as a reminder but also as a checklist.
Think of it like organising your thoughts for the day in the form of a to-do list.
I usually separate mine between work and personal.
Example of my personal list:
- Drink water first thing in the morning.
- Do a hand-stand just because.
- Have gratitude for at least three things.
- Visualise people gaining value from this post.
- Get some sun, Reeve.
Example of my work list:
- Crunch those numbers - import, export, excel sheets, you know 🤷♂️
- Complete one personal development module video.
- Read ten pages of - The Power of Now (such a spiritually eye-opening book, wow 😍)
- Join mastermind webinar @ 13:00
- Try really hard at something new I just learned and fail
- Go "ohhhh" as I find out the right way to do it which could have been avoided by watching the 2-minute long tutorial first (haha, silly me)
Tick your intentions off your list as you go about your day.
As you tick them off, you will find it makes you feel great that you’re getting them done, and you'll end up looking like Jonah Hill on top.
That's: "super happy because I'm high on quaalude's" - if you didn't get it.
If you didn't get that, then watch Wolf of Wall Street loser 🙃
Keep a Journal
Keeping a journal is great for mental clarity.
It's just great in general, to be honest.
I read a few times from some of my mentors that I need to do it, but I never did because I thought I'm not a 13-year-old going through the most - but then I realised I act like a 13-year-old 🙃 which was close enough.
Journalling helps you to figure out things as you write them down.
When something is bugging you, write it down in your journal, and once you write it down you'll find that you actually get way more clarity on how to proceed with regards to it #Mental Clarity.
Writing it down also takes it out of your mind as well as opposed to you fixating upon it whole day.
I've found that I usually get an answer to what's bothering me once I write it in my journal because it gives my mind the power of working through the issue and figuring out the root cause #MentalClarityGameNextLevel.
Another benefit is that when you're recording your daily progress and how you feel every day, you get to see just how far you've come after a few weeks when you step back and take a look at what you wrote.
I know you will see progress in those notes and continue progressing on an individual level because you're choosing to take the time and implement tips which will make you a better person each and every day.
And don't be hard on yourself if you feel that you're progressing slow - sometimes we beat ourselves up, or push ourselves too hard, forgetting how far we've actually come in our journey.
So, a journal is great to keep track of this progress and look back to appreciate your journey up until this current point.
I personally use Day One as my journal - It’s free! :)
So there you have it.
Those are the three small things you could use right now to provide mental clarity so that you can take on your given tasks for the day.
I hope this helps and adds value to your life.
