Shut up brain
I could not sleep last night. Despite turning in before 11 (very respectable I thought) I was still wide awake at 12.30. Too many thoughts going through my head, including everything from current knitting and crochet projects to a planning a high tea.
I thought getting that info out of my brain might help. I remembered a tool a colleague likes to use at work, and thought it might help me in my hour of need.
Mind mapping. Have you ever done this?
I turned my phone on (I have it off during the night because I know how tempting it can be to play with it, but this was an emergency) and downloaded SimpleMind.
Did it work? Kind of. While I was happy to get a lot of this stuff down, then I was stuck thinking what other things I could add! A bit of a vicious cycle.
Do you mind map? I think I might do so more often, it's actually very satisfying to see all my thoughts in one place and coloured prettily. I can definitely recommend the app I used, very intuititve and fun to do!
