Off-Load Worry for Improved Performance

Write down your worries and concerns on paper, and you may have more mental capacity to engage in other tasks requiring your attention—and do so with increased efficiency. That’s the discovery of researchers at the University of Michigan, where it was observed that those who wrote down their worries and concerns (engaging in a “mind dump”) actually freed up brain capacity that was weighed down by the stress and anxiety associated with personal and workplace troubles. Will it work for you? Try it. Source: MSU Today
