Get ready to feel lighter, happier, and more at ease with these powerful declutter your mind quotes. These heartfelt words will help you let go of all the mental clutter and find your inner tranquility.
After writing about how to declutter your mind recently, I wanted to look at some quotes about the same subject.
This won’t come as a surprise if you read my stuff a lot, as I am a BIG fan of quotes of all kinds. Whether it be about organising, having a simple life, or leading a busy life – there are some brilliant sayings that can give inspiration exactly where you need it!.
My advice here?
Choose something from below that has the sentiment of what you want to focus on when it comes to decluttering your thoughts and anything else in your head that you’d rather not have there.
Write it down where you can see it each day (maybe on a post it note on the bathroom mirror?) – so it will be front on mind- until you’ve achieved what you want to.
Hope these all help you have a clearer and uncluttered mind from now on.
Quotes To Help You Clear Your Mental Clutter
“The more we detach from things that don’t add value to our lives, the calmer, the freer, and the lighter we feel” – Joshua Fields Millburn
When we free our minds from unnecessary worries, stress and negativity, we can start to find a newfound sense of and purpose.
So, take some time to think about what matters to you, let go of anything that isn adding value, and find your inner peace.
You’ll be surprised at how freeing it can be!
“Don’t feel guilty doing what’s best for you” – Unknown
We all have moments of feeling guilty when we’re trying to do something that’s best for us.
It could be everything from taking time out for yourself, spending money on a hobby or just saying no to someone.
But here’s the thing: it’s ok.
You shouldn’t feel guilty doing what’s works for you – and you need to remember that!
“The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities” – Steven Covey
“If it isn’t a clear yes, it’s a clear no” – Greg McKeown
“To be simple means to make a choice about what’s important, and let go of all the rest. When we are able to do this, our vision expands, our heads clear, and we can better see the details of our lives in all their incredible wonder and beauty” – John Daido Loori
If we always think about everything at the same level, then our heads can become way too full way too quickly.
And if they are full, there’s no space for working out how to solve problems, do tasks, etc… – and so we get busier and busier – and less and less effective.
Think how amazing having more space in our heads would be!
“Simplicity boils down to two things – identify the essential and eliminate the rest” – Leo Babauta
“There is nothing more calming than an organised home” – Unknown
I always think that homes have a lot of excess noise going on – if you listen!
Your subconscious mind will be all too aware of the tasks needing your attention. The piles or laundry to put away, the squeaky stair, the cupboard door falling off its hinges etc… – they are all needing attention – and unless they’re sorted out, they will continue to do so.
With this thinking, it means that having an organised home will naturally have less stuff that’s trying to get seen and done.
And in the same train of though is the next quote:
“Mess equals Unclean to the subconscious mind” – Chrissy Halton
“It’s not about ‘having’ time, it’s about ‘making’ time” – Unknown
Truth bomb: You’re never going to find time unless you make time appear.
It’s not a passive thing that will just happen, because we’re built to make our tasks fill the time we have.
So, be active in making time slots for things you want or need to do – and you’ll feel a lot calmer and more in control every day.
“Clutter is not just physical stuff, it’s old ideas, toxic relationships and bad habits” – Eleanor Brown
So important to remember!
It’s all too easy to just think about physical clutter, but often times it’s the mental clutter that’s more trouble…
“Happiness is a place between too little and too much” – Chrissy Halton
“Make space to have daydreams about possibility” – Erica C Cote
If your mind is always full of busy thoughts – like the TO DO list you haven’t written down, your schedule that’s full to bursting, or worries about family members – then you’ll never be able to give any time or space to the bigger picture thinking…
“Stop being busy, and you’ll get to know yourself. Stop caring what they think, and you’ll feel calmer. Stop going fast, and you’ll find the right direction” – Maxime Lagace
“Keeping baggage from the past will leave no room for happiness in the future” – Wayne L Misner
Fill your head with thinking about the past (regrets, worries, ‘should have’s’ etc…) – and you’ll be living in the present and future without actually taking advantage of it.
Don’t let the future be wasted because of the past…
“The things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least” – Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
“The first step to crafting a life you want, is to get rid of everything you don’t” – Joshua Becker
“Don’t listen to negative influences. Believe in yourself, and show others what you can do. Only you” can find your potential” – Marla Runyan
“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy” – Leo F Buscaglia
“When we try to juggle everything, we can’t enjoy anything” – Courtney Carver
“When things change inside you, things change around you” – Unknown
It all starts with you and how you feel.
Make your insides happy and healthy in their thinking and you’re well on your way to a mentally clearer future.
“Everything is a choice” – Unknown
You get to choose. Happy? Sad? Hard? Easy? – yes, there are things that are sent to test us – but we can choose how we deal with everything.
That’s quite empowering, isn’t it!
“Clean your space, clear your mind” – Unknown
“I’ve noticed when I fear something, if I just end up doing it, I’m grateful in the end” – Colleen Hoover
However hard I think something is – it’s always easier when it’s actually being done or has been finished.
I think that’s because you are more in control when actioning things…
