Reducing Mental Clutter with Mental Dumping
Every day is filled with tasks, projects, assignments, and endless chores. Unfortunately we tend to allow this never ending list of ‘to do’ items to swirl around aimlessly in our minds throughout the day. I wanted to find a strategy to manage my mental clutter that was quick and also very simple. This week’s post focuses on reducing mental clutter by completing a daily ‘mental dump’. I first read about mentally dumping in a book called Behind the Clutter written by June Saruwatari, a professional life coach and professional organizer. This was a fabulous book with so many great mechanisms for getting to the root of the mental and physical clutter in your life. Mentally dumping stood out as one of the simplest way to clear my mind of daily action items and activities that I wish to do.
