What steps can you take to produce results and eliminate an anxious mind. The most calm and productive people are those that have taken time to develop a clear and focused mind.

Some of those techniques like journaling, deep breathing or setting clearer goals can help to calm a racing mind.

They all play a big role in our Emotional and physical fitness which affects our energy and creating a clear and focused mind.

10 techniques for better focus: How to get a clear focused mind?

1) Meditation

A simple and effective way to clear your mind and focus on the present moment. We live in a time of plenty distractions from various trends and socials and it’s easy to get distracted and overwhelmed.

Mediation can be used as part of a healthy morning routine which creates a possibility to set yourself up in the best way for the day and gives you time for yourself before everyone wakes up.

Plus, starting the day with some healthy habits can set the tone for the rest of the day.

Meditation is the antidote to an anxious mind.

2) Journaling

Writing down your thoughts and feelings can help you to organize them and feel more in control. Journaling as a routine helps to establish a sense of structure and discipline, and it can also help to increase productivity.

Having a habit to write down your thoughts is one of the most powerful things you can do to clear your mind and be focused on your goals.

Rituals define our standards and daily habits of journaling your goals and intentions will all improve your energy.” We become what we THINK about and the 1% of people take advantage of this which separates them from 99%.

3) Focus on the widely important goals

Spend more time on things that move the needle and little time on trivial details. For example in nutrition and dieting it is so important to shop only for foods that support your vision!

In building new habits find people that keep you accountable! It will make a huge difference in where you end up!

You are always deciding what to focus on, what to invest in, how to do things, and where your time should go…⁣remember 20% of actions would produce 80% of the results.

There’s also the principle of Inversion which you can apply to know is important. Thinking about what you DON’T want, in order to better identify what you DO want.

4) Time Management

Planning out your day or week in advance can help you to focus on what is most important and let go of unimportant tasks.

Steve Covey talked about in his book “7 Habits of Highly Effective people” why weekly planning is more effective than a to –do list. Since then my life has changed every time I commit to planning my week in advance.

Managing your time better would help clear your mind and focus.

5) Creating your Environment

If you don’t surround yourself with people aligned with your goals you make it difficult for you to have a clear and focused mind.

For example, going out with friends that boast on how many crates of alcohol they can binge on every weekend is a sure way to remain addicted to alcohol.

Words and images play a powerful role in autosuggestion – the kind of music and movies you listen/watch influence how clear and focused your mind is towards your goals.

6) Exercise, Diet and Sleep habits

It’s easy to get burned out in going all means to achieve our goals and let go of the standards you had for yourself. These are the secrets to managing your energy.

Getting your body moving can help to release built-up tension and stress, clearing your mind in the process.

Sleep deprivation has a big impact on the clarity of your mind. Prioritize sleeping 7-8 hours each night. Naps can be helpful also.

7) Set clear and big goals

Set goals that are meaningful and tractable. Measure yourself on the repeatable actions taken. Improve daily. But how can you make sure that your goals DON’T end up in the “goal graveyard” before their time.

Having a PLAN to make them happen. Creating a well thought out plan with clear action steps. Commit yourself to staying focused on the outcome you want. If you firmly believe in your goals, you can be unstoppable. Write them out somewhere you can see them every day.

9) Take consistent action

Ensure the actions you take fall into a simple system, so you can ensure that you are implementing them consistently.

“I set goals and then work out how to achieve them. Anything I want to do in life I want to do well and not half-heartedly. It’s never a bad thing to have a dream, but I’m practical about it” – Richard Branson (Screw it, lets do It)

Coach Xian, stated it perfectly on her “5 Tips to have a clear and focused mind” post on how she rebuilt her business as a single:

“No more theory only action: No I made sure that I was not getting back into the ‘stacking theory’ loop, and that each solution had to be 100% practical and show me fast, substantial results for how to better handle myself, life and work.

It had to be easy, clear and painless, because I did not want another thing I needed to do or worry about or find time for.

Apply to life immediately / Experiment actively: I immediately practiced everything that seemed useful in everyday life.

I wanted a solution that was truly sustainable, so I radically deleted any practice that I did not excitedly or consistently use, or that did not show me a large impact quickly.

I figured out exactly what worked great for me, and that I did more of!”

9) Practice Mindfulness 

Be mindful of the story you tell yourself each day. If you cling to limiting beliefs or those that promote blame and self-defeat – you become a victim of your own thoughts. This would lead you to take lower level decisions.

Stop believing the myth that you need someone else to complete you or have a clearer mind. No one else except yourself can make you focused. Not a boss, spouse, not a significant other, not your girlfriend.

If you feel incomplete it’s because you’re not living to your full potential. Eat better, workout, learn something daily and stop looking elsewhere for someone to complete you, instead, look inside.

10) Use Affirmations

Repeating positive affirmations can help to clear and focus the mind. Uplift yourself with daily affirmations that will help you feel happier, stronger, and more worthy.

Use positive “I am” statements like “I am strong” and “I am confident.” Each time you face difficult and become anxious – say words like:

“This too shall pass”

“I can do everything i put my mind to”

Repeating powerful affirmations for success can help you eliminate negativity and limiting beliefs that are keeping you trapped in mediocrity and dramatically understand what’s possible, and what you’re truly capable of achieving – Jack Canfield.


These techniques would help you develop a clear focus and undistracted mind. Then you can take the right actions, hit your goals and make good decisions daily.

This confidence and calmness helps you keep emotional outbursts at bay at work, home and in your business allows you to keep having greater impact.
