A simple way to experience more peace of mind? Brain dump all the things you are holding in your mind onto a sheet of paper or note.
How it Works
Write down as many thoughts and ideas as you can with no judgement. Just keep writing until you begin to feel like the same ideas keep surfacing.
Chunk Similar Ideas Together
At this point you can now begin to organize your ideas also known as ‘chunking’ into groups or themes that make sense.
And from there you can prioritize any ideas that may need attention now from those that can wait.
Break Down Into Small Possible Action
Then just ask clarifying questions for any ideas that need to be further broken down in order to take action on them, until they are broken down into the smallest possible action step.
Organize Actions in a ToDo App or Productivity System
Once you have all your smallest actions clear , you can organize them in your todo app or productivity system of choice. The reason for this is so that you don’t forget them and it can also be fun to check items off and have a log of all your previous accomplishments.
Take Some Small Action On This Today
Whatever system you use, you will find that by listening to your mind and taking action on your most important concerns, you will start to feel greater peace and a sense of empowerment and accomplishment in your life.
