How To Detox Your Mindset


Is your mind feeling cluttered? One of my favorite ways to free up space in my mind is to do a brain dump. I know that’s not a pretty term, but it’s when you get a piece of paper and write ANYTHING that comes to mind. Let go of the information you don’t need in your brain by spring cleaning your to-do list.

Another way to free up space is to bring awareness to any negative thought patterns you may be having. What do you keep dwelling on that’s taking up headspace?


If you’re anything like me, you easily absorb other people’s energy. That’s why it’s so important to be around positive and good-humored people. The same is true for the types of information you consume online. If we don’t spend any time alone without interference from others, we lose sense of what our own thoughts and opinions are.

Follow and interact with people who add value or positivity to your life. Then, ask yourself how you can remove what is not valuable to you. Unsubscribe, unfollow, and perhaps try a media detox to give your brain a break.


Identify what calms your mind instead of overwhelming it. This could include activities like meditation, reading, yoga, or watching your favorite TV show. It could also be a physical space like your bedroom, a yoga studio, or the middle of a forest. Whenever your thoughts start to turn negative, go to your happy place to calm your mind.


One of the reasons we get overwhelmed and distracted is because we multi-task. By now, you’ve probably heard that multi-tasking is not good for our brains or our productivity levels. This constant need to gain more information by scrolling through the internet is only causing us more stress.

Instead, practice that art of not reacting to every impulsive thought or idea you have. One way to do this is the one-tab challenge. Sound too extreme? These mindfulness practices are great for clearing your mind and preventing impulsive actions.


Grab your planner and pencil in time to brain dump, stay away from social media, and do activities that keep your mind calm. Purposely carve out and schedule time to let your mind reset. After all, having a blissful mind is something that genuinely takes commitment and dedication.

P.S. I highly recommended reading Essentialism by Greg McKeown if you want to get more focused on the things that truly matter to you.
