10 tweetable quotes to clear your mind, and 5 for Pinterest too

My favourite quotes to let your subconscious do the thinking

Clear your mind and you give it the space to find the answer you’re looking for. It’s a strange paradox but the time you spend not thinking about a problem is as important as the time you do. The key is to leave your thoughts in the back of your mind and let your subconscious do the work. Give it a try, even if you have to set a stopwatch for your timeout – you stand a better chance than with the alternative…



How to clear your mind

Consider doing things completely unrelated to the task at hand. Some people find it helps to go for a walk or a jog, enjoy a nap, chat with a friend – do what you do that switches off your conscious thinking.

Quick tips to clear your mind

  • Draw or write without thinking about the result
  • Chat with a friend, offline or online
  • Imagine yourself to be relaxed
  • Take a nap
  • Read a book or watch a mindless video on Youtube
  • Go for a walk or a jog
  • Get up and dance!

When you start working again you may find that your mind has already found the answer, but if not it’s certainly in a better state to tackle the problem from a fresh perspective.

In the words of Anaïs Nin, ideas usually come not at your desk but in the midst of living. So prepare to clear your mind. Stop what you’re doing at a point where it will be easy to pick up again, then think about each of these quotes and do what you do…

  1. Quote Schulz procrastinate

  2. Quote Robbins play

  3. Quote Edgar Allan Poe dream



  4. Quote Heinlein progress

When you’re stuck give yourself permission to walk away. At first it may be difficult to realise at what point continued effort no longer gives you the same returns. But with practice you’ll learn to spot when slogging away isn’t the answer. I always appreciate the new lease of life that a break gives – letting go is often the best way to get things done.
