It’s Time for Some Spring Cleaning … of the Mind

It’s Time for Some Spring Cleaning … of the Mind

Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)

As an individual who spent eight years in the military (Nuclear Submarine Fleet), and then about two additional decades working for the Military Industrial Complex (Raytheon), traveling the globe to facilitate government contracts … I think that I have a depth of understanding about certain topics that would escape, or shock most. Sometimes amazing things happen when you disassociate and really LOOK back … I think we call that waking up, something that happened to me about a decade ago.

But there is also the inevitable associated emotional and informational overload! Today we live in a world that is a total nightmare for those who are (actually) awake, constantly researching, and publishing the facts … me in a nutshell … otherwise called, retirement.

You see pre-21st Century (especially pre-internet), we were so unaware of so much, and those behind the curtain (Toto hadn’t pulled back yet)  could move with relative impunity. Fast forward to today and we who have done the research (TLB = awake) are aware of the Deep State, the Shadow Government, the Global Elite, the Corporate Emperors, Agenda 2030, Global Warming Lie, Big Pharma Tyranny, etc…, etc…, etc… !!!

With all of this and so much more not mentioned, It is easy … especially if you do what I (and so many others) do every day … for your mind to become overloaded, cluttered and in some cases, depressed.


Well … isn’t it that time of year for the annual spring cleaning of the domicile, work space and any other space that is cluttered. But what about the mind? After all, it takes in tons of information (not all good) and has to remember, collate and make available on a moments notice, important details every single day. If you don’t clean/clear the mind, you won’t be able to function at optimal performance … then who will you be able to help?

How can you best ‘spring clean’ the mind?

Some tips sent to TLB. I hope this helps …

Eight tips for spring cleaning the mind by: Dr. Alok Trivedi 

  1. Get quiet with your thoughts: Our minds are continuously cluttered with tons of information. From everyday events happening around us to important details at work and at home that we have to remember, most people usually feel overwhelmed. To free your mind and give it a break, you have to get quiet with your thoughts. Find somewhere with no distractions to sit and relax and do absolutely nothing that makes you think. Just sit still and focus on the quiet. Do this at least once a day.

  2. Say no to electronics and other distractions: Playing on your phone or tablet might sound fun and like a great way to forget about things, but it’s not going to free up your mind or give your brain a rest. Neither is reading, doing a word search, or anything at all that involves focus. The idea is to not do anything that involves thinking, strategizing, comprehending, comparing or the like. Take time to tune out and shutoff your brain each day.

  3. Practice making better decisions: One of the ways we get mentally bogged down is by sitting on decisions for too long. Make an effort to become faster when making decisions. Certain things do require thought, so give yourself a deadline so you don’t overthink it. Once the deadline comes, make your decision and move on. Hint: your gut instinct is usually correct. Another hint: if you do make the wrong choice, most things can be corrected.

  4. Seek more enjoyment: Most people are constantly stressed out and take their careers and other responsibilities very serious. That’s not a bad thing but you need to find time to have fun and enjoy life. If you don’t find any enjoyment in your career, perhaps it’s time to find a new line of work. If you don’t have any fun with the activities you engage in, it might be time to find some new interests. Finding enjoyment is so important to spring cleaning the mind.

  5. Avoid multitasking: We are a society that loves to multitask. The result: mental overwhelm, stress and anxiety. Instead, focus on doing one task at a time. You’ll see better quality results and you’ll feel more relaxed and in control.

  6. Forgive and forget: Are you holding any grudges against anyone who did you wrong? It might be time to make amends and put it in the past. Holding onto resentment and anger is one of the best ways to bring on mental anguish and overwhelm. Make a decision to let go of the past, even if you believe you did nothing wrong. This is such a freeing experience and your mental and physical health will thank you.

  7. Get more excited: Do you wake up in the morning dreading the day ahead? Or, are you getting out of bed pumped up about the day and weeks ahead? Studies have proved that those who look forward to the future are more mentally healthy. As part of your mental spring-cleaning ritual, start to have things you are genuinely excited about.

  8. Focus on better time management: People love to say they wish there was more time in the day. The reality is we all have the same 24-hours each day. The secret is becoming a master of time management. Plan out your day ahead of time and leave a cushion for any appointments that run later than expected. Prioritize things from most important to least important. Learn to delegate. The best mental Spring-cleaning time management strategy: learn to say ‘no’ and stop over-committing

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
