The mind is potent, controlling your body and feelings. However, everyone has bad days, and sometimes your mind doesn’t feel as alert as usual. As a result, it can cause mental confusion, clouding your thoughts. A clouded mind can cause numerous problems because it prevents you from searching within yourself to find what you need or must do to accomplish your goals. Extreme cloudiness can also affect people because it prevents them from being in tune with their thoughts, making it difficult to identify their goals and objectives.
Such instances can occur because your mind is cluttered. Consciousness is frequently considered one of the most complex topics in both psychology and philosophy and rightly so. However, we can still define it as being able to perceive, know, or recognize what happens within us and in our environment. This situation is not trivial because our brain cannot digest all the information that enters our senses and simultaneously stores it in our memories.
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Jane Morales is a coach of human development, potential, leadership, and assertiveness. In addition, she’s also a meditation master, writer, and public speaker. She graduated with a BS in Marketing from Bentley University in Boston and a Master of Science in Communications from Boston University. She also obtained a higher degree in Psychosynthesis-Psychology and coaching certifications and trained in the power of intention, positive affirmations, and potential fulfillment.
As a result, Jane is highly qualified to speak about the merits of decluttering your mind. As previously mentioned, a mental blockage is a significant cause for concern for most people, and Jane expands on it by saying, “Mental block and clutter make people highly anxious. The easiest way to understand mental blockage is by referring to it as a state of daze. You can’t access your thoughts, preventing you from taking the best action in a particular situation.”
A mental blockage is more common than people think. An excellent example is students failing to perform in their exams, despite studying religiously, because the anxiety makes them blank out when they see the exam questions. However, it’s important to remember that mental blockages don’t only occur in students and the education sector. They happen to people from all walks of life, including business executives and CEOs, in highly stressful situations.
It’s worth noting that mental blockages and mind fog shouldn’t be as common as they are, especially since our culture sponsors well-being. For example, people know what to eat and how often to exercise to function optimally.
Yet, for some reason, they still live with constant anxiety, limited mental control, and excessive mental clutter that prevents them from properly managing their ideas and actions. Elaborating on it further, she states, “Mental fog is a symptom, not a disease in itself. Our body and mind reflect ourselves, which means that physical or physical health is a consequence of balanced mental and emotional health.”
Therefore, Jane Morales details the importance of caring for your mental and physical health and reveals, “Our robotic, monotone routines make us lose perspectives. We lose our spirits and enthusiasm as we get into everyday problems. Eventually, clutter takes over, and we feel lost.”
People often compensate for their mood changes by engaging in harmful and destructive habits, like smoking, drinking, oversleeping, etc. However, the assertiveness coach stresses the importance of developing good emotional habits. "Good emotional habits bring calmness to your well-being. They make you more alert and willing to try new things. They help you discover and enjoy the things that always make you feel good,” she asserts.
According to Jane Morales, paying attention to unfavorable ideas is important because it’ll help you recognize what’s consuming your energy and time. Only then will you be able to find creative solutions to enjoy the present? Moreover, she recommends making a list of concerns because doing so relativizes them. Likewise, she also recommends paying attention to your environment and practicing relaxation techniques.
Applying these tips can help people overcome mind fog and declutter their thoughts, but it’s only the start. Jane helps her clients with her unique Assertiveness, Empowerment, and Mental Strength Coaching method. These tips form a small part of it. She helps her clients build these essential attributes by helping them understand the energy of thought, organizing goals, and creating action plans.
This is not all! She also assists clients in connecting with their true intelligence and getting to know themselves, allowing them to control their lives. Besides, her coaching method helps clients develop self-esteem and find meaning and success in life. Of course, none of this would be possible without making positive decisions and living healthily, something Jane Morales also focuses on with clients.
