If you are at home, put on some music that you can do a few dance moves. This will get those endorphins pumping through your body.

Don’t Forget the Good Things

 

Remember Good Times in Your Life – This doesn’t mean that you should live in the past. Living in the past could cause you to focus on regrets in your life. Instead, do this the mindful way. This means you should stop and occasionally remember the good times you’ve had in your life. Take time to close your eyes for a few moments. Then recall the first sporting event you ever went to, remember all the things that happened. Or perhaps it’s when you received your first bouquet of roses, your first date, your first child and so on. Whatever it is that brought joy and laughter to your life. Go back to a time and a place that makes you smile just thinking about it.

Include a Thank You

 

Always Practice Gratitude – One of the best ways to help get rid of your mental clutter is to always remember to be grateful.  Always remember to say thank you. If you believe in a higher being, then thank them for all the blessings in your life. If not, then thank those you feel who have brought positive things to your life. Or just say thank you, in general, it all will be positive.  To show your gratitude for everything in your life. Show gratitude for everything you are. This will have a positive impact on you. When you express gratitude it has an extremely positive psychological effect on your overall mental health. Believe it or not, showing gratitude can even reduce the stress in your life.
