Pull out a notepad and write, write, write. Write down everything swirling around in your brain. Like, things you need to get done, tasks to be completed, details you don’t want to miss, appointments you can’t forget and projects that are on your mind. This massive brain dump is cathartic. All those thoughts and ideas are mayhem in your brain. When you release them and see them visually, you’ll immediately release the tension of forgetting something. Writing your goals also brings clarity and focus. It gives you a direction. It’s a powerful reminder that you can use to keep yourself on the right track when you feel stressed (like at times like this).
