1. Restful sleep
Your brain appreciates a good sleep.
Good sleep is what it takes to clear the mind and bring mental clarity.
2. Don’t think about your day as soon as you wake up
Stay calm. Sit quietly after waking up for a few minutes and then begin your work. This helps you clear your mind every day.
3. Clean Slate Every Morning:
The next morning is a new start. You can make things right, do good things, and be productive.
To clear your mind every morning, just think to yourself ‘Today’s a new day’. This thought will help you approach your day with more positivity and productivity.
4. Encouraging Words:
Have one quote or positive words that you can really connect to. Place it where you see as soon as you wake up.
Words kindle emotions.
Personally connecting inspiring words will kindle high spirits. It helps your mind to shut off unnecessary/negativities and focus on the positive. It’s an effective practice to clear your mind every morning.
5. Cheer Up:
If you wake up and filled with messy thoughts, and feel disturbed, here’s a simple trick to clear your mind.
Forget everything and start doing your routines. When you start concentrating on routine things to do, your mind will shift its focus from unwanted thoughts and focus on things to do next.
We fill our thoughts with ‘what we didn’t do’, ‘what we didn’t get’, and ‘what we don’t have’ most of the time. It will fog your mind in sleep, in the morning, in the day and at night.
Bring gratitude. It will teach you to feel more instead of less.
Some people use to write gratitude-journal every morning when they wake-up. This helps them clear their mind and get productive things done.
