Regarding cleaning up the space; start with small steps. Clean out the space step-by -step by. Separate out the days for cleaning out one section per session.

2.    Prioritize your goals 
     Prioritize your goals on the basis of importance and urgency. In addition, make scope for the emergency to-do list. In this way, you won’t feel guilty in not meeting the daily goals while getting the emergency list done. Before prioritizing your goals; try to section it out into yearly, monthly, weekly and daily goals. Make the everyday goals-attainable and realistic. So, that you won’t feel overwhelmed to complete your daily goals. 

3.    Do the writing
Writing is the best therapy which helps to express all your feelings and emotions in a paper. Some situations and emotions might not be comfortable in sharing with others. Thus, writing your heart out could help you feel good. Furthermore, writing your goals is one of the best preferences which will make you focused and less-stressed.

So, try out which works best for you, for me it’s obviously notebook. 

4.    Big No to Multi-tasking
In this fast-moving world; it’s really difficult to adjust with the speed. Therefore, knowingly or unknowingly we get caught up with multi-tasking. Some jobs, such as-research  like mine  requires multi-tasking. So sometimes it’s overwhelming to have work-life balance and  to lose the  track. Multi-tasking is huge No-No as its ultimate result is reduced efficiency. So, if you have multiple functions to complete, then divide tasks into several steps. And do one thing at a time. Perform other function only after completion of previous task.

5.      Don’t be hard on yourself
We all work hard to be better version of ourselves. Sometimes we become over ambitious and forget to love ourselves. The main purpose of everyone’s life is to be happy. But we sub-consciously be hard on ourselves. We don’t care about our health and end up having cluttered mind. In your busy schedule, you can have at least ‘Me’ hour for yourself. Meditate, go for walk, make healthy meal, work-out or pamper yourself. It will help you to recharge and free your mind from clutter. Additionally, help you to create mental space to create, grow and motivate in everything you do.
