Mindfulness is the simple process of being intensely aware of how you experience your existence every moment.
Your thoughts, your experiences and everything you do will be observed like a witness, by yourself. Meditation techniques such as the Vipassana are advanced form of mindfulness meditation.
When you start not reacting to your thoughts by being intensely aware, they lose the power to emote you into a specific behavioral pattern. Gradually, your mind will become clearer and clearer.
You will also start understanding yourself and your surrounding in a deeper manner when you are aware of your thought patterns.
The best part is that a window to change your thought patterns will start to appear where you can insert positive thought streams altering your life experience. New ideas and ways to get out of the confusion will emerge in your mind.
3.Clear out your surroundings and stuff
Our surroundings or the way we experience space will influence the way we live and react to situations. While a cozy clean environment improves the feeling of wellness and clarity, cluttered filthy dusty places whack us out of balance.

A great sense of clarity and well-being can be achieved by decluttering your entire possessions.
Marie Condo, in her phenomenal book The Magic of Tidying Up, strongly suggests to let go of all that doesn’t spark joy.
Keep your surroundings and places you spend time organized and clean. This space experience will enter your inner mind and open up peacefulness in you.
Have a complete decluttering process of all your possessions and then routinely keep up with it by dedicating time to declutter.
You can surely conjure clarity out of confusion, if you do the above.
