Steve Jobs was a practitioner of mindfulness. He said “If you try to calm (the mind), but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things - that’s when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before. It’s a discipline, you have to practice it. "
Sometime, the less you think, the clearer things tend to become. Simplicity comes from the clarity of the mind, from focusing your attention on the present, and not letting your thoughts wonder.
And it’s not only about the mind. Think about this, do you need so much stuff? Clutter can also cause anxiety and distract you. Be mindful of what you keep and store away. Try clearing out one of your cupboards or wardrobes to help you clear your mind and reduce unnecessary clutter.
