    I have been a victim of "monkey mind" for as long as I can remember. Years ago, when I tried to get a better handle on the events that were controlling my life, I focused on the external forces that I was sure had everything to do with my success [and failure] in life. If I was happy, something made me happy. If I was sad or depressed, something else made that happen, too. In my quest to gain greater control of my own life I realized that the thoughts I was creating every moment had everything t I have been a victim of "monkey mind" for as long as I can remember. Years ago, when I tried to get a better handle on the events that were controlling my life, I focused on the external forces that I was sure had everything to do with my success [and failure] in life. If I was happy, something made me happy. If I was sad or depressed, something else made that happen, too. In my quest to gain greater control of my own life I realized that the thoughts I was creating every moment had everything to do with the quality of life I would experience at any given moment. Getting to the point, "Declutter Your Mind" is a powerful book on gaining total control of your mind, environment and shaping the future as you want it to be and not just relying on life to happen as it should.In their third book in this series, Steve [Scott] and Barrie [Davenport] have written a book that targets one of the most critical areas we all struggle with: a life full of clutter. As they point out from the intro, your thoughts create reality, from stress and productivity to feeding into emotions, we can control and direct our thoughts to work for us instead of against us.The book kicks off with the 4 causes of mental clutter:• Stress• The Paradox of Choice• Too Much Stuff• The Negativity BiasThe next section gives us four mental declutter habits that add serious weight to both physical and mental health. The first is "Focused Deep Breathing" where we learn the full value of focusing on deep breathing on a regular basis. The second is "Meditation" and the authors say "we suggest meditation as a tool to help you train your mind and control your thoughts." Steve and Barrie introduce the simple 11-step process to use for building the mediation habit. Next is the "Reframe All Negative Thoughts" habit. Here you will learn the "six strategies you can use throughout your day to break the pattern and begin taming your mind." Finally we have the "Teach Your Old Mind New Tricks" habit. Here we have four great strategies for gaining greater control of your thoughts instead of being a slave to them.Honestly, I was sold on this book after the first chapter. The 4 Mental Habits are enough to add incredible value to your life. But there are three more sections that add more weight:Part 2 is about "Decluttering Your Obligations" and determining the Core Values as, according to the authors, “one of the simplest ways to eliminate mental clutter and live a more fulfilling life is to define your values and guiding principles for your life." In this section we learn four awesome strategies for nailing your life values, clarifying priorities, Mindful Goal Setting with Quarterly Smart Goals, and Connecting Goals to Passions.Part 3, Decluttering Your Relationships, is the section of this book I needed the most. Because relationships are largely responsible for driving many people into stressful fits of rage, from kids to parents to friends, you don't want to miss this part. Declutter Your Relationships introduces 4 Relationship Strategies guaranteed to improve, empower and strengthen your communication with people. On every level you can have relationships that function in a healthier way. Steve and Barrie show us that by being mindful of others, we develop deeper levels of empathy and emotional control.Part 4 is about simplifying your surroundings. Where you spend the most time has a huge impact on your happiness and state of mind. This section has enough juice in it to make your living space a business powerhouse if you clean it up. As the authors state: "When your environment is cluttered, the visual chaos restricts your ability to focus."This section will show you step-by-step how to• clean up your home• minimalize your digital life• spend more quality time with friends and family• learn to relax more and avoid a life a busy-ness all the time• simplify your distractions to avoid procrastination• simplify your daily actionsDeclutter Your Mind has a strong focus on Mindfulness, and how we can tap into our greater selves to create a life of relaxation, peace, serenity and freedom. In a world of increasing complexities, schedules stacked up, and distractions controlling our lives, there has never been a better time than now to start "decluttering" your mind [and your life].-- An added bonus to the book at the end are is a 400-word list of values so you can choose the values for evaluating your current quality of life.--**So what's the final word on Declutter Your Mind?**The book is, as expected, written in a way that readers can start implementing the strategies and habits right away. The language is concise and clear and, both authors, drawing from their extensive experience discussing self-improvement and habit strategies have provided us with a timeless book chock full of actionable content. This is a definite recommend for people looking to have a simplified and calmer lifestyle.

    I grabbed this book for free through Kindle Unlimited, as I was interested in finding some literature on reducing stress, worrying, and anxiety. While this book delivers on all of those counts, I was not overly impressed.The book feels more like an infomercial for the authors' careers, websites, blogs, and other books than a self-help guide or management book.

The authors do a good job of describing the things they didn't invent, which I guess is a good thing. The writing is clear and concise, which is another positive.There are some good chapters, but unfortunately almost every single on is a list of tasks for listing tasks that will help you complete lists of tasks. And really, who needs more lists of tasks?So, two stars for the writing and the possibility that a brand new reader to the genre will find it very useful.

    The authors suggest that the best way to stop worrying and relieve anxiety is to write yourself long to do lists. Oh yeah, and meditation. If you have the time to spare from completing all the lists, obviously. Serves me right for buying click-bait on-sale books...

    Decluttering the JunkThis short and concise book on mindfulness was very good. I felt it was more approachable than many other books of similar subject. It's almost like a distillation of many of the best thoughts and exercises concerning living a more mindful and less stressful life. As a society we could all stand to live more in the moment and cut the busyness.

    Ah, clutter...we all have it. And in today's world it has gotten into our minds. There are some very good points in this book on how to handle the everyday worries and anxiety that seem to affect all of us. But reading about eliminating it and doing it is quite different. We can always try and I do follow some of the points given in this book but somehow I really am not sure you can turn off what swirls in your mind every minute, hour or day.But at least this is a road map to follow.

    Declutter Your Mind (2016) by SJ Scott and Barrie Davenport is a self-help book that has a lot about mindfulness about how to feel less overwhelmed. Meditation and mindfulness are recommended. As is decluttering your house. Ending bad relationships and finding out what's important to you. Getting things done, Pomodoro and other things are mentioned. Lists are also recommended.The book is a very quick read, the advice isn't terrible. But it's also all pretty forgettable.

And even if one tries to deliberately escape these things in search for mental peace, the indispensability of digital gadgets li In 21st century problems like poverty, corruption, crony capitalism, cyber security, terrorism etc. might be posing serious challenges to the society and the State. But in the era of digital revolution, hustle bustle of city life, this mad race for material possession, guided by the values of living in the moment; people hardly want to miss any action they came across. And even if one tries to deliberately escape these things in search for mental peace, the indispensability of digital gadgets like mobile, iPad, laptops drags us to stay connected with the virtual World. This is enormously affecting our mental health, moods, habits, behavior and overall thought process. This book I came across while scanning the recommended books on Kindle and surprisingly got at extremely low price. Having known my personality type after taking MBTI test I've became aware of the reasons behind my random thoughts (author use of the term "monkey mind"), feeling of mental stress, problem of not following through, getting overwhelmed by too many interests, high magnitude of curiosity level etc. all this have resulted in mood swings, fickle behavior and inappropriate response. This book has come up with some central problems of today's day to day life covering multiple aspects of social life which runs through across the society. The books introdces us to the four causes of mental clutter i.e. Daily Stress, Paradox of Choices, Too much Stuff, Negativity bias. The credit goes to the author for highlighting simple and obvious solution to its readers in a step by step procedure methods. This I should refer to as "procedural based approach" to the problems. Many of us while reading the book would not find the solution to be unique as these solutions have been discussed before by the community of spiritual gurus, psychologists, health experts, doctors and many others. For e.g. deep breathing exercise for 10 minutes a day is a simple tool to attain mindfulness and calm mind have been spoken by many. But it has also incorporated important methods to streamline one's life through defining one's core values (and the way one should define its core values), goals, priorities, passion. The book has made references to many other sources where the readers can find the step by step procedure for the specific problems. My personal favorite part of the book is the short write up on "flow" technique. This "flow" technique is similar to the concept of "deep work". The concept basically is that one should do important task which he loves with full concentration, high focus and deep intensity for 2-3 hours continuously where he loses the awareness of time and find himself completely immersed in the task. In this process the practitioner unknowingly disallows the distraction and loses the sense of time projecting himself to the feeling of ecstasy. But there some basic rules to be followed before one enters into the state of "flow". Overall the book is a must read for those who are in search for stress free, efficient and productive life style. It's difficult to find a light and simple book like this suggesting potential technique to how to Declutter the mind and live life in peace.

I don't spend hours on social media, I don't take selfies (don't like them) and I don't fill my house up with "more and more stuff." I also do some of the things suggested in this book, like doing 3 big tasks in one day, planning my tasks for the week on weekends, and also how I will accomplish them, as well as breaking things down into 30-minute increments. I don't break my tasks down into minutiae subtasks -- I don't want things to get too complicated -- but I outline general steps to take to completing my tasks. Bottom line: I am not like a lot of the people clumped together to use as examples of what can create a cluttered mind (like constantly being distracted by things), but I did find a lot of information in this book to be useful.

    Meh.This book claims that it will help you “declutter your mind”. Only problem is that it begins to heap one thing after another on to you that it honestly left me more anxious than I was when I started reading. They go through each suggestion or technique at such a brisk pace also. Some you’ll see the value of, others you’ll just kind of go, “Uh, how does this help”.In all honesty, this is a book designed to make you more productive, not so much less anxious.

    Declutter Your Mind, is a quick read and provides some basic advice on how to 'clean up' the way you think. It was a good reminder of how to get your goals and life aligned with what you're really trying to do. It was more a lifestyle/ personal development book than any scientific psychology book, but helpful nonetheless. Would recommend if you're looking for some good ways to organize yourself at work or in your personal life. I feel a bit more organized and calm after having read it.

I have so much mental clutter that I often have trouble falling asleep and can't keep my mind focused on current tasks. The book recommends reading it one time through and then go back and determine what actions you want to take to improve your mental clutter. I have already started with the breathing exercises and I believe that has helped already. Everyone should read this book!

    Useful and UniversalDeclutter Your Mind offers useful tools not only to identify what is causing those feelings of hopelessness, dread, and anxiety in your life, but also to solve them mindfully. Each chapter breaks down one aspect of the cluttered mind and provides a numbered list on how to counteract it. An excellent approach that has already made a positive difference in my life. Highly recommend!

    I skimmed the second half of the book. These are already ideals and mindsets I currently utilize in my life. I have learn these things from "The Power of Now" "Mastery of Self" "Untether Soul" "Wheels of Life". The solution to everything in this book is making lists and planning which in certain circumstances can be positive but actually found some of the messages to be unmindful or present which does not promote a clutter free mind. I do not recommend this book.

The breathing technique has already proven effective when I get worked up or my anxiety kicks in. Daily practice is going to be the key for me. I look forward to more mindful and present thoughts ripe with peace and less worry.

    Realised it's a short book (got it in audio version) and this reads like any other decluttering articles you read on the internet with tips and exercises you can use. He also mentioned other popular practices by Marie Kondo and Gretchen Rubin, so if you are looking for a collection of tips, you might want to explore this book. Was expecting more on the psychologies into it but that's fine. I'd call this my cheat book for the numbers this year.

    This book only took 20-30 mins to read at a quick run through and brought together a strong selection of material on mindfulness, defining values, doing the things you're meant to. I have a quibble (unsurprising) with the default assumption that tech is a problem/taking away from other activities, but I'll continue to do work on that & suggest ways that tech is embedded and can enhance, rather than take away. Even covered mindful eating in about 4 screens!

    This cluttered book had very little to offer me. The abundance of commonplace knowledge left me annoyed, forcing me to skim-read the latter half of the book. Instead I'll recommend the book, 'The Stress-Proof Brain,' by Melanie Greenberg, which I found to be a much more informative and powerful guide to overcome negative thinking and live a more uncluttered, stress-free life.
