How to Do a Brain Dump to Declutter Your Mind

Decluttering has become quite the discussed topic here on my blog but something that I don’t talk about as much is decluttering your mind. In my opinion, decluttering your mind and your mental space is just as important as decluttering the physical items in your life.

One of the best ways to declutter your mind is by doing a brain dump.

What is a brain dump?

In its simplest form, a brain dump is simply taking all the thoughts from your mind and writing them down. It’s a quick way to declutter your thoughts and help you focus on what’s important.

Borrow It Before You Buy It

I want to start this post by saying there’s nothing wrong with buying things. If you want something and you feel it will improve your life, then go and buy it.

However, these days, we seem to have forgotten that the thing we want might be easier and cheaper to obtain by borrowing.

The Habit Tracking App That Keeps Me Motivated ♡ Streaks App Review

I came across this app by accident. I wasn’t looking for a new way to track my habits or even create new and better habits, but finding this app was such a happy accident.

I’ve tracked my habits on and off for many years now. Habit tracking has motivated me and kept me going through many hard parts of my life. But my issue with habit tracking is that it always felt like an extra task that I had to go out of my way to complete. This is why I’m grateful for my happy accident with the Streaks app.
