This morning, my head was spinning with worries and tasks. Instead of letting this consume my day, I grabbed the back of an envelope from my junk mail and started writing everything in my head down. It took me under two minutes.
Getting things down digitally also can help, but personally, I find the physical act of writing therapeutic. I immediately felt in control, could quickly scan and prioritize, and now have a script to work from to put me on autopilot.
