Mind-Mapping

One of my favorite tools for clearing my mind, letting go of negativity, finding inspiration and direction, and getting creative, is Mind-Mapping. This can look so many different ways, but basically what you want to do is start with One Word, or One Question, or One Idea, and write that on the center of your page (or top left and follow the arrows to cover the entire page). From there, surround that word with feelings, actions, ideas, and goals. From there, it may lead you to another Question, or the desire to dig in deeper with one of the words you have written down. Allow yourself to follow the trail, writing down as many words and actions as you go along, until it feels complete. 

Once your mind-map is complete, choose three tangible actions to complete that same day, that embodies the Intention you set for yourself. Once you are clear on what you want for that day, you will see one opportunity after another to further your growth, improve your skills, and progress towards your goals in life. 

Not only is this a fun and interactive way to work through indecisiveness or to gain clarity or intention, it looks neat written down and you may surprise yourself with what you come up with.  

This Mind-Map is the intention I set for myself today....

Here is a basic skeleton of how you could make a similar Mind-Map...

And here is an example of one based on asking yourself Questions, and allowing those questions to evolve and get to the root of desires, values, fears, and Actions (starting at the top left corner)....

Try it out and see where it takes you. Practice makes Perfect Practice, you have to start somewhere. Go get 'em! xoxox
