Mental clutter causes just as much stress as physical clutter, if not more. We tend to walk around with a mental dialogue going on about all the things we need to do, what we forgot to do, or what we would rather be doing! You can get pretty exhausted just thinking about your to do’s before doing a thing!
I suggest dumping those thoughts right away! Keep a notebook within reach at all times. If you find yourself with all of that clutter swirling around in your mind, stop what you are doing and write it down. Allow yourself a break from the to do’s and worry about the task at hand. Every evening do a brain dump before bed to help you get a restful night!
Do you find yourself lost in thought on your mental to do list?
