What is a drain Dump? Declutter the mind with the brain dump method.
I have found there are so many good benefits from doing the brain dump. But for me it helped me release things inside my head that I didn’t need to worry about. And realize what was impoetant nd wat wasn’t. Especially when there are so many things building up in our head. And everything seems to have to be done like yesterday! Can you relate?
A brain dump also allows you to look at what is really important, and what makes you feel good. Maybe there are things you have written down, and are holding onto that you don’t need to until further down the track.
How to do a brain dump. Declutter the mind with the brain dump method.
1. Write down a list of what’s on your mind.
This can be done in a digital way, or just letting yourself loose on paper. Because there are no limits or restrictions. The point is to dump and get everything out of your head.
2. Dig a little deeper.
This is a great list to make sure your not forgetting anything.
1- What do you have due next week or next month?
2- What appointment do you have coming up, or you have to make?
3- What are the important work tasks that you need to do.
4- Do you you have any home tasks you need to do? ( Grocery Shopping, laundry, cleaning) all the good stuff !
5- Are there any other outside tasks you need to do?
3. Do you need to change that to do list?
Maybe your to do list is rally long! To help with the feeling of overwhelm, see if there are things that can be erased, outsourced or postponed.
1- Erase anything that you don’t really need to worry about.
2 Outsource the things that can be removes form your already full list.
3 And postpone anything that isn’t necessary to be done at this time.
4- Create groups to simplify.
Now it’s time to organize that to do list. Why not put things on your to do list into groups. And of course this will depend on your own personal lifestyle. Here are some of my ideas I used.
Prioritize your tasks. Declutter the mind with the brain dump method.
So now that you have a more organized list, and hopefully without the overwhelm. It’s time to decide when your going to do them. When do they need to get done?
1- Today. More of a priority.
2- Coming up. To be done soon but maybe doesn’t need attention today.
3- Later. It doesn’t need attention till a later date.
This will give you a sense of more freedom to only worry about today.
Make a plan for your daily tasks.
But after all that careful planning, it’s now time to take some action. Are you ready? Then take a look at that today list and see what needs to be done first. Knowing your priorities will makes things so much easier, and make your day run more structured without any time wasting. This will also give you the tools to be more productive in your day.
