Decluttering Your Mind

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness. Today we're going to be exploring a way to declutter your mind and deepen your focus. And we can do this through a very simple and yet powerful practice, the practice of narrowing our attention down to focus on just one thing at a time, the thing that's happening in the present moment. Now, this sounds pretty simple, right? Just focus on one thing at a time. But we live in a world today where that kind of simplicity and attentiveness is becoming more and more rare and difficult.

You know, in our high speed, high demand world, many of us have never ending to-do lists. We also have electronic devices that are constantly beeping at us, demanding our attention. And extremely full calendars that give us very little, or maybe even no space or time so that we can stop and catch our breath. Now, when we're pulled around by all of these demands, when we're rushing around getting it all done, we're often left feeling pretty depleted and scattered and stressed. So if we want to bring more calm, more centeredness, more clarity and happiness into our lives, the best place to start truly is within.

Because when the mind is racing, when it's cluttered, when it's frantic, we inevitably become scattered and stressed. But when the mind is calm, clear, and at ease, we feel much happier within ourselves and we feel much more at home within ourselves. So through mindfulness, we practice cultivating these qualities by focusing on just one thing at a time, taking it just one moment at a time, and then we let that practice flow out into our lives. Now, of course, this focus on one thing at a time does not mean you cannot get things done. On the contrary.

Research shows that we're actually more productive, we make less mistakes and we're more efficient when we stop multitasking and rushing and do one thing at a time. The research also shows that we enjoy our doing much more when we slow down and focus. And that matters because, hey, life, isn't a to-do list. It is meant to be enjoyed. So in today's meditation, we'll explore how to declutter your mind and cultivate deeper focus, not only in meditation, but in daily life, too.
