Doing a brain dump is simply writing down everything and anything that is in your head about why you are feeling anxiety. It could be anything that is on your mind that you are afraid of, angry about, sad about and so on. The brain dump journaling technique can help you to re-pattern your thoughts when you are stuck in negative thinking or self-sabotage. The brain dump not only gets the venom and upset out of your mind, it also lessens the power your internal dialog has over you and allows you to see the situation from a more constructive position. It's a positive and natural way for you to get rid of anxiety and manage those anxious feelings at home fast by keeping track and looking over your progress.

What You'll Need

  • Pen and paper or your computer

What You'll Do

  • Put your fingers to the keyboard or pen to paper and dump away!
  • Be honest with yourself and notice triggers.

Tips & Warnings

  • Don't feel bad or guilty about what comes up. The brain dump is your safe and personal space to say anything and everything that's on your mind. It may be harsh, mean, negative, contradictory and uncomfortable but that's OK! We all have these thoughts from time to time and if you push them down and hide them they live as if they are true. Once you get them out you have a shot at solving the issue and changing the thoughts!
