Maybe one of the biggest problems we have to face these days is the amount of information we have at our hands – most of it is totally useless, btw – creating a total chaos inside our heads. Feeling overwhelmed is an issue almost everyone is facing right now. We already know the problem. The thing is this: how are we going to deal with it? How should we know what kind of information will be useful, and what kind of information will not? How can we avoid the burn out?Well, have you ever heard of a Brain Dump? The name kind of speaks for itself: a brain dump puts all that information into a more manageable format, in a way you can understand. It’s basically prioritizing information into levels of more importance to less. Now – how the heck should I do that? You might ask. Stick to these tips and you’ll manage to avoid the overwhelm:Categorize your thoughts into work, family, friends, study, health, hobbies; you don’t have to think which ones are good or bad for you. Just make sure to write everything down!Read it and re-read it as many times as you needTransfer all this info into a list and prioritize them into either ‘urgent’, ‘important but not urgent’, ‘maybe later’, etc. Give yourself a break and then put everything into your planner. Bam!Your brain dump is now complete. You can do this in your own time – don’t pressure yourself, as this is the opposite of your main goal in the first place. And as many times as you want. Maybe even turn it into a habit…Who knows?
