Intro to: Declutter Your Mind from A Book in Time

Published on 31 August 2022 at 12:42

According to Tiffany:

Brains are the master of everything we do and think about from childbirth on. The things we experience, how we learn, and our perceptions and beliefs are all stored by our brains. Like a computer system, new thoughts are being downloaded daily, memories of our lives. Over time our minds can become cluttered as our brains may not file all this information in the correct files. This can promote stress and sometimes even panic. This is what author Tiffany refers to as "Mental Clutter." We work our brains hard and rely on them to bring the correct information forward when we need it, such as dates and names. As a matter of fact, even while we sleep, our brain is processing what occurred during the day. One thing we can do to give it a break and help this process is to declutter the mind. Some things that clutter the mind are toxic people, our surroundings, believing we are busy, and toxic habits. The only thing that stands in your way is YOU. And you have the power to fix that. You must put forth effort and work to make changes. It starts with a choice.


Tiffany promises:  "You will have a more productive perspective, know what you want and how to get it, and have a more organized digital and mental inbox." Rewiring your brain requires effort, work, and motivation.


A Book in Time's Commentary:


Professionally:  Every day, you process thousands of pieces of information. If left unattended, this has the potential to clutter your mind and leave you feeling overwhelmed. It is important to be aware of all this data, properly sort through it, and remind yourself this is just "information." It is up to you to perceive and assign value to it. Suppose you allow too much information to accumulate without processing it. In that case, it may lead to feelings of stress and disorganization, frustration, and hinder or even shut down your ability to process or make good decisions. From a business perspective, capture these thoughts and analyze them. I find it helpful to write lists each day, which involves encapsulating the source of most thoughts. Writing down everything that comes to mind gives a different perspective and begins the organization process. Seeing the thoughts on paper often minimizes the impact of the content and allows the mind to begin to compartmentalize the information and start processing it accordingly. Start with the item on the list that has the greatest impact. Work to resolve or at least minimize the power this item has over you and take control of that power over content.


Personally:  From a personal perspective, I find if I allow too many thoughts to go unprocessed, my mind becomes cluttered. Daily, your mind is filled with thoughts of how to care for your family, help friends, resolve health issues, deal with relationship issues, financial issues, work-related issues, bills, deadlines, paperwork, etc. If not organized properly in your mind, the clutter may affect how you respond to the events of the day and those around you. The only one who can sort through this is you, and you have the ability to minimize the impact of the information. It does not take away from the importance of each item, but rather, it allows you to, perhaps, "deflate the intensity." Hence, you are more effective in finding a better, more appropriate solution or way of dealing with this information.


Spiritually:  A cluttered mind often results in a lack of peace and contentment. This limits your ability to cope and affects all aspects of your being. You can choose to be content in every situation. "I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well-fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all things through Him who gives me strength" Philippians 4:12-13. If we recognize the source of our strength and not try to do everything through our own limited "self-reliant" means, we find peace and security beyond measure. "That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong" 2 Corinthians 12:10. We are instructed to have a lowly spirit and be humble. Lowly and humble do not mean weakness. On the contrary, they exemplify being STRONG. "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you.  Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid" John 14:27. "Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for He has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you"" Hebrews 13:5. It is your choice to have faith and be content.
