Hello, my dear ones!
I am going to be talking about how to maintain mental clarity when dealing with stress, anxiety, or anything else that may be cluttering your mind. We all have moments in our lives when it is just too much, and I came up with three different techniques I use to regain a clear mind.
- Meditate. I know we have all been told to meditate in the past but it is such a positive action we can take when our mind is busy. I suggest using a crystal that calls out to you and then setting an intention for your meditation. You could simply say you want to dedicate five minutes to your breathing or perhaps self-love. Meditation doesn’t need to be deep and profound all the time, it can simply be choosing to give yourself time and space to breathe.
- Smudge. You may have heard of smudging and it is a very effective technique to reset your space and yourself. I recommend tidying before you smudge. So, if there is an area of the house you need to tend to it may help decrease your anxiety too. Simply, light your smudge stick and blow out the flame and allow the smoke to rise. You can then focus the smoke on areas where you want to clear the energy of. I honestly think this mentally resets the mind to focus on what is before you instead of behind you.
- Essential oils. I tend to always buy clarity essential oil blends at the store but you can make your own or use peppermint, lemon, rosemary, etc. I honestly think when you smell a fresh smell it can clear out any thoughts you may be letting build up during the day. Use an intentional smelling method and deep breathe in the aroma and tell yourself as you do this that you will be clearing out any negative or busy energy or simply that you need to focus. Aromatherapy is a powerful tool that you should always utilize!
I think these are all effective methods of bringing peace of mind back to you. However, whatever works for you is wonderful! I think it is the setting the intention you need to focus and taking a few deep breaths that works like magic.
I’d love if you would share any thing you do to clear your head in the comments~
Have a lovely day,
