Performing a daily brain dump is a great way to empty the mind of thoughts, worries and to-do’s. When we’re busy our minds become cluttered which leads to stress and overwhelm. We are unable to think clearly or work productively. Introducing a simple ‘brain dump’ exercise into your morning or evening ritual can really help. All that is required is a notebook, or sheet of paper, and a pen. It’s an exercise that works really well with Bullet Journaling. To help you get started I have included printable versions of the layouts that I use each day in my Bullet Journal.
