Mental Clutter and Your Life's Health

Life would be too easy if we could just simply hand over our entire problems to someone else and all we had to do was enjoy the easy things to have fun. No one can take care of your things all the way. They probably can, to a certain extent. The real power however comes, when you take responsibility for your life.  

Mental clutter is made up of worries and bad feelings. Regrets of the past and worries about the future can easily overshadow the present moment. Self-doubt can also take up a lot of space in the mind. When an excess of these types of thoughts take over in the brain, it can be stressful, upsetting, and sometimes, even paralyzing. Lingering thoughts that are hanging around creating a depressive atmosphere creates mental anguish.

When things get difficult, the easiest solution seems to wrap ourselves in denial. This is the last thing you should do, as this adds to the mental clutter. Denial is probably one of the reasons why your mental clutter has accumulated. Come face to face with things. They don’t bite, but you have got to start dealing with the things that were shoved under the rug.
