Unfortunately, clearing your mental clutter isn’t as simple as eliminating a possession. You can’t “throw away” a thought and expect it to stay gone. In fact, like a never-ending game of Whack-a-Mole, your negative thoughts have a way of popping back up as soon as you slap them down.

Close your eyes, or keep them open with a downward-focused gaze, then take a few deep cleansing breaths through your nose—we recommend three or four breaths at a time. Gradually become aware of your breathing. Notice the air moving in and out through your nostrils and the rise and fall of your chest and abdomen. Allow your breaths to come naturally, without forcing them. Focus your attention on the sensation of breathing, perhaps even mentally thinking the word “in” as you inhale and “out” as you exhale.

Acceptance of a situation doesn’t mean you avoid action. It means you don’t blindly fight and claw to escape.
