Brain Dumping

Brain dumping is an exercise where we comprehensively express and record our thoughts, ideas, or commitments from our heads onto a paper or a calendar.

Self Improvement

  1. You will stop having random thoughts. Having these constantly feels like you have 20 tabs open in your mind.
  2. You will be able to think and work faster. Just like any other computer, when you have too many junk files, you start to slow down. Brain dumping is like deleting these junk files you don't need.
  3. Working will feel like a breeze without any worries or stressors. It's easier to be present and enjoy your work without having to think about everything all at once.
  1. Free Flow - this is best used when trying to calm down your chaotic mind. you just write anything and everything down without altering or deleting.
  2. Goal Focused - this is best for planning your day the night before for a less anxious night. Basically prioritizing tasks and preparing ahead.
  3. Gratefulness - this is best used to lessen worry and to focus on everything we have and did right.
  4. Weekly - best for reviewing the things you did this week is to re-clarify your goals in life.
  1. Starting too late. Do not delay brain dumps. It doesn't have to be a daily habit unless you deem it fit.
  2. Not trusting your notes.
  3. Write, don't type. You will remember what you've written down better instead of it being typed on a screen.
  4. Not taking a break. After a brain dump, it's recommended to take a 15-minute break to relax and enjoy yourself.
  5. Ignoring the cause. Brain dumping helps relieve stress and anxiety but take the time to stop and reevaluate what you currently are in.
