Brain Dump Giveaway | Inner Savvy Wellness

Recently I was reading Beauty In the Mess’ post, 8 Things to Do Before 8 AM to Make Your Life Less Hectic. There were great tips to help you feel less stressed. You know that stress is one of the key causes that contributes to chronic illness.  Anything you can do to feel less stress is important in your healthy living.

My favorite tip was number seven, Brain Dump.  I have had some clients tell me that they can’t stop their monkey brain.  They struggle with so much in their heads. They can’t stop thinking, or they always feel like they are forgetting something.

Solution…do a brain dump every morning or even in the evening.  Spend just a few minutes and write it down.  Get whatever is in your head on paper.  Phew, now you don’t have to remember everything, and you can relax that you have it recorded.  But where do you record it?

I was shopping right after reading Whitney’s post and came across this little index card notebook, Thoughts From a Crowded Brain by Eccolo.  So cute, small, and an easy place to keep all your to-dos, thoughts, to-remembers, or random thoughts.

I bought two, so one of my lucky readers can have one too.

    I would be lost without a notebook at hand as I seem to brain dump all the time. Whenever I have a thought about writing or even household chores or shopping, it gets written down immediately so I can concentrate on what I’m doing without trying to remember other things. I love the shape of the little notebook in your giveaway.

      Good for you. Too many people don’t take the time to write it down and they think they will remember it. I do have a notebook next to my computer but I want to try a brain dump in the morning.

  2. I’m also someone who takes notes, jots down ideas and quotes. I have many notebooks filled with ideas that come to me during the day and night. And yet, I still have so much information and so many ideas that seem to occupy space in my thoughts. This is a great way to get some of them out and to commit them to paper! A wonderful reminder to do our own version of a ‘brain dump’ daily! Thanks Karen!

    There is something so powerful about writing things down! I love that it not only frees up my brain but it also gives me a great starting point the next morning. Great suggestion and nice giveaway!

    • Karen says:

      Thanks, Crystal. Love that you have discovered the power of clearing you mind by writing things down. Thanks for stopping by and letting me know you liked the post and giveaway.

  4. I always jot things down and do a daily brain dump. Learned this years ago in a seminar on time management. I was also a full-time working mom juggling many tasks & without a written way of keeping track, life would have been stressful.
    Very nice idea to create this useful giveaway. Good luck to someone who doesn’t yet have a good system.

    • Karen says:

      I can see how a brain dump in the evening would help. Actually anytime someone is feeling like their brain is full, it is time to brain dump.

    Karen – I, too, make lists and compile Brain Dumps on cards. The nice think about stock cards (vs. paper) is that the material is stouter, so it stands up to being rifled about in my purse, pocket, counter-top, etc. The only other thing I could add is that I feel perfectly fine bringing a Brain Dump item from one day over to the next. For instance, I may write down “Terry’s birthday is coming up.” If Terry’s birthday is in 2 weeks, and I just happened to remember it first thing this morning, it gets mentioned on today’s card, but I won’t act on it as fast as I will if, say, taxes need to be paid today. Anyway, nice post – and it’s nice to see that I’m not the only one who uses this approach to efficiency!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Joan, I love that you use it to really work for you. I truly believe brain dumping is just as you described, when you think of something, you write it down. Thanks for sharing that example. Makes it so much more clear for all.

  6. Joyce Hansen says:

    I have note cards that I use to write down topics, names or keywords. As I go through the pack it reminds me of things to do, follow-up on or as a point to write my next blog post. Sometimes I look at it before I go to bed, and the next morning I quickly write down thoughts my brain has been working on during the night. Great idea and thanks for sharing.
