Today I want you to declutter the space around you. You may not realise it but clutter is distracting. If you are working at a desk and it is full of stuff, both important and meaningless, this will cause your brain angst. It will be much harder to focus, as your brain will become distracted by the items around you.
The same goes for if you workout at home. If your home gym is cluttered with items everywhere you will be less inclined to workout. Why? Because your mind will tell you it’s far too much of a hassle to clear everything up before you start to workout.
There is a fantastic book called ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying: A simple, effective way to banish clutter forever‘ by Marie Kondo. It gives you countless strategies to organise your daily life and how to organise the items that surround you in your home and work.
Even if that all sounds too much, I want you to spend 5 minutes deleting and sorting old emails. If you took 5 minutes everyday for a couple of weeks you could finally achieve ‘Inbox Zero‘. Which would help you keep in control of your work schedule every day.
If your mind is surrounded by clutter – it will eventually become cluttered and it will be next to impossible to focus on your goal.
