What should you do when you don’t know what to do? When you feel overwhelmed?
Overwhelm is a common feeling. You may think that you don’t know what to do. Yet most likely it’s just that you don’t know what to do next.
This is why I recommend a Brain Clear.
Get a pen and paper, or pull up a new document on your screen – and write. I recommend you set a timer for 3 minutes, this shows your brain that you are taking action and it will not take forever.
The goal is not to create an organized to-do list, but rather an unfiltered expression of the many racing thoughts taking up real estate in your mind.
Two wonderful things will follow:
1) you’ll likely feel better – just getting things out and down can be cathartic and centering.
2) with All The Things written plainly before you, you can begin to assess what’s really a priority and what can wait – you can find a place to begin. And then, begin!
A Brain Clear can be an excellent method to include in your daily morning routine, regular weekly preparations, or any time you feel a sense of unease or overwhelm clouding your mind. You get to move beyond the stress and into a sense of knowing, doing and relief.
