You took the Busy Brain test and know your score, but what can you do about it? Today, I’ll explain how you can reverse those Busy Brain symptoms to improve your overall well-being.
If you’re struggling to remember some of the microhabits I shared during our time together, you’re not alone. That’s a symptom of a Busy Brain!
I put together this short video to give you three actions you can take TODAY to help alleviate feelings of anxiety, lack of focus, and sleep problems.
No time to watch a video?
I hear you. Read on for a summary of the brainSHIFT microhabits I discussed in this video.
What is a brainSHIFT?
A brainSHIFT is a simple microhabit that anyone can implement in order to calm a Busy Brain and start feeling better.
I encourage you to try one or all of these 3 for the next 7 days and observe how they make you feel.
Commit to getting all those racing thoughts out of your mind and onto paper. This is particularly powerful when done at some point before going to bed because it stops those insomnia-inducing thoughts so you can sleep.
Grab an old-fashioned pen and paper (no computers or phones please!) and write down everything that’s on your mind. Your to-do lists, your worries, future plans, and even things you’re excited about!
#2. Sleep Schedule
Sometimes we need to help our bodies move into more healthy routines, especially when it comes to sleep.
For the next 7 days, commit to going to bed and waking up at the same time each day. You’ll start to notice a big difference in energy levels by the end of the week.
#3. Digital Detox
The day is over, you finally have a few minutes to yourself. Ahhh, it’s the perfect time to troll and scroll on Instagram, right? NO!! Please, put down your phone (and your tablet, computer, and TV) for at least 30 minutes before bedtime each time.
Our minds become far too stimulated when we interact with devices before bed, making it hard for the brain to shift into the sleep zone. Want to learn more? Check out this video.
For one week, commit to turning off those devices for 30 minutes before bedtime (2 hours is even better!).
You are not alone.
Over the past 5 years, I have seen a clear pattern in these test results. Over 80% of our test takers are scoring above a 30. If you’re like the majority of our test-takers, then you should be aware that the symptoms of stress are affecting many areas of your life.
I don’t want you to panic. Instead, commit to making one change in your life to improve your overall well-being. This blog offered you several ways to brainSHIFT. Which one will you choose?
