3 Ways to Keep a Clear Mind

December 22, 2020 | Education | La-Dana Manhertz-Smith

You don’t have to do everything on your to-do list. How about just doing the ones that matter today?

It's easy to be tempted to think taking a break slows you down, making you less productive. However, taking a break helps clear the mind, improve focus and helps you make better and more productive decisions.

Here are three simple ways to keep your mind clear when you are completely exhausted:

Go out in nature.

Take a walk outside, bask in the sun or follow a gentle stretching sequence if the weather isn’t great. This helps refresh bodies and minds.

Do a technology detox throughout the day.

Leave your phone in another room or in your backpack and only check your texts and emails on the hour, i.e at 1 p.m. or 2 p.m., instead of mindlessly scrolling.

Get creative.

Draw, bake, knit, crochet, color mindfully, decorate a "corner" in your room, or design something online or on paper.
