Friends, sometimes life just feels crazy! As I type this, we are in the midst of a summer full of back to back to back to back trips! Somehow we didn’t realize when we made our summer plans that we scheduled so much time away for various conferences, family events, and vacations, but it has been a little nuts to say the least.
I am definitely not complaining at all. It has been so fun to spend time with my boys, visit with blog friends, and get good quality time with family– this summer has been a fun adventure, truly. But quite honestly, with trying to juggle work and life, there have been a few nights where I’ve had trouble sleeping because all of the little details and “to dos” have been swirling around in my head, and I’m afraid I’m going to forget something important.
I was tired of losing sleep, so I came up with a super simple solution: the brain dump. Before I went to bed at night, I took out one of my blank notes printables, divided it into categories, and wrote down everything I could think of that I needed to do in each category.
I loved having one place where I could see everything I needed to do, and it gave me peace of mind that I wasn’t going to forget anything. (And I was able to sleep better too!) It would usually take me a few days to work through everything on my list, and when I had completed all of the tasks, I would do another brain dump and start the process over again.
It’s so simple, but it was truly has been one of the most helpful tools to get me through this period of craziness!
If you want to give the brain dump method a try, I’m giving you the pretty printable that I used to make my lists– for free, of course! You can snag it below:
