If you struggle with anxiety, sleeping or often feel overwhelmed, you may want to try a brain-dump. A brain-dump is simply taking the information you have collected over a period of a day and writing it down with bullet points. I like to use a planner or a note book and just jot down my experiences for the day. I like to break up my day in morning, noon and night. Here is one example of what a brain-dump may look like:
* Great morning with girls, woke up on time, spent time reading, felt relaxing
*Didn't eat all my lunch, spoke with boss about new project, feeling nervous, scared it will not go well
*Ran, ate dinner with girls, over all good day, struggled staying positive but still made progress overall
Taking just 5 minutes each night to collect your thoughts and write them down, allows your brain to empty excess feelings and thoughts and frees you to connect with yourself and to relax.
Take care everyone and I hope you try a brain dump. Thanks for reading and have a great week!
