You are what you think.
If you are constantly worrying about the future, thinking about all the mistakes you’ve made in life, and thinking of all the things you want to change but aren’t willing to do so, then guess what? That’s exactly where you’ll stay: stuck in a place that is full of negativity and regret.
If you have a lot of different things going on in your life, it can be hard to focus on the task at hand. In fact, the chances of you being distracted by something else go up as the number of tasks you have to complete goes up.

So, how do you clean your mind so that you can maximize your productivity?
Unfollow Toxic People
Toxic people are everywhere in the world, despite being a popular topic of discussion. Toxic people are not limited to a specific place or a profession, and they can affect anyone in any setting.
However, research has shown that they have a bigger negative impact on people with low self-esteem and who feel they lack control over their lives.
A recent study found that spending time with toxic people can bring up our own negative emotions and behaviors, sometimes to the point of making us feel like we want to abandon our values or quit our jobs.
Be Selectively Social
Social media can keep you hooked for hours, and this constant exposure to social media is making us feel overwhelmed. You may find yourself feeling anxious or depressed without knowing why. Social media can be addictive and is taking a toll on your mental health.
Social media is a great way to stay connected with people of similar interests, but it can also be stressful. In today’s day and age, we are always on, and these platforms make us feel like we have to be “on” more than ever. We’re constantly bombarded with notifications from social media, our smartphones and other devices. It’s easy to get caught up in the constant flow of information and end up feeling overwhelmed or distracted.
But social media doesn’t have to be a toxic place. It can be a forum for positive thinking and a place where you share your ideas and thoughts about a certain topic. If you want to make social media a better platform, then you should also join the league of people who are trying to keep it clean, spreading positivity and trying to achieve their goals through this medium.
Live In The Moment
Most of us spend a lot of time thinking about the past, and worrying about the future. This constant thinking is actually a distraction from being in the present moment. When we are constantly thinking about what happened in the past or what might happen in the future, we’re not experiencing the present moment in its fullness.
This constant thinking is a major source of stress in our lives. Being constantly distracted by our thoughts makes it hard to focus on the task at hand, whether it’s work or life itself. It can also make us depressed, anxious, and even physically ill.
Everything we’ve been taught about the past and future is wrong. The past no longer exists, and the future hasn’t happened yet. All that exists is this moment. And it is within this moment you must look to find true happiness and contentment.
The concept of “Live in the Present Moment” sounds like an easy thing to do, but most people struggle with it on a daily basis. Why? Because we live in a world of distractions and constant stimuli that constantly pulls us away from focusing on where we are now.
Obesity and unhealthy eating habits are unhealthy and bad for the mind. Eating unhealthy foods gives your body a load of toxins which make your brain sluggish and foggy.
You should eat healthy foods to keep yourself alert and sharp. The first step towards eating healthy is to remove all junk food from your house. If you don’t have junk food at home, you won’t be able to eat it. Always carry healthy snacks like raw veggies or fruits to munch on when you feel hungry.
