How to clear your mind

What is your room like?

Personally mines full of things left undone and lying around.

I come home, put my bag down, take some stuff out, and leave everything else on the floor.

I’m going to take it all with me again tomorrow, why bother putting it away?

It’s not that it’s generally messy, but I tend to leave stuff out and undone.

What does that mean? What does it say about me?

I thought about it, and I think it means I lack definitiveness or conviction, or something like that.

My tendency to leave things out I think is an indication I like to float around in grey and leave things unresolved.

I’d rather hold onto stuff because it requires mental labour to part with it. Why? Because I’m not sure if I’ll need it.

So I guess the root problem is something like lacking clarity.

What do I need in my room? What should I leave out for tomorrow? What’s my life even about?

Not sure.

Cool, probably not good. So what do I do about it?

I thought about it, and I decided that I needed to get clear what my life was about.

So I went and did it. (Long story, will share later.)

After that I closed thirty tabs on my browser, deleted a bunch of old writing, threw out some junk and cleaned my room.

I feel lighter, and my head feels clearer. Funny that.

Your personal landscape (particularly your room) shapes your mind, and your mind shapes your personal landscape i.e. your room is a mirror of your mind.

What is your room like? Messy? Disorganised? Untended to?

Could be a hint, and it might be good to do something about it.


Any questions? What should I write about next?
