Most people have a tendency to let things build up and procrastinate until they get overwhelmed. When your brain is restless and stressed, you will begin to fall out of healthy routines and habits. But you can fix that.
Organize all things in your brain with a brain dump….
Writing things down helps you prioritize, clarify thinking, and accomplish your most important tasks, over urgent busy work. The practice of writing can enhance the brain’s intake, processing, retaining, and retrieving of information… it promotes the brain’s attentive focus … boosts long-term memory, illuminates patterns, gives the brain time for reflection, and when well-guided, is a source of conceptual development and stimulus of the brain’s highest cognition.
A brain dump is an act of getting all of your thoughts out of your head so you are able to focus on one idea at a time. It’s basically a time to organize everything on your mind: your worries, questions, needs, wants, important and urgent tasks, and everything on your mind. The point of a brain dump is to capture the full picture of everything you need and want to do. If you can manage it, a daily brain dump at the end of the day can prepare you for the next morning.
You can get this done in 10 minutes or less. At the end of each day, look back at what you accomplished, what you learned, what you want to follow-up on tomorrow, and what you want to pursue tomorrow. Aim for 5 to 10 minutes of uninterrupted time to brain dump, ideally the same time every day.
If a brain dump is not achievable, you can commit to a weekly schedule. Shortly after your brain dump session, get back to your list and start organizing the items. Regular brain dumps will help you advance goals and get things done! Today is 30th May 2020. I’m looking back at what I’ve posted and I’ve just realised that a brain dump is just what I need.
