Experience shows, that when you start to feel anxious and overwhelmed, it’s partly due to trying to use your brain for storage! The brain is meant for processing, NOT for storage. When it’s busy trying to track and recall and organize all the things you need to do, it’s significantly disabled and can’t process for you as you need it to.
It’s time for a Brain Dump!!!
To get the mind refreshed and de-stressed, do a Brain Dump like this. On a fresh page in your journal, number from 1 to 50 (minimum). Block out an hour in your schedule. Sit somewhere enchanting, quiet, soothing, distraction-free and begin to dump everything you have to do, and want to do, from your brain.
It might look like this;
- Make bed
- Revise and recommit to Blog schedule
- Help Sonja find a personal chef
- Prepare exhibit for Friday’s event
- Check in on Mom
- Get info. to time share people
- Review Dana’s video
- Re-seed back lawn
- Discuss online marketing idea with Richard and Ellen
- Outline Radio Show with guests for 2 months
Just keep with it. You will begin to feel the water line lowering in your mind…breath returning to normal…shoulders dropping. I wouldn’t worry about taking immediate action on anything yet. Enjoy the relief!
Then, as you feel inspired, begin to address the list, one thing at a time, day by day.
Repeat as necessary!
