How To Do A Brain Dump | 2 Step Process to Planning

Hey Passionista

As we say good bye to 2020, and enter 2021… I want you all to do a “Brain Dump” to help you start planning your year. Doing a Brain Dump every few months will help you better organize, prioritize and set goals for yourself. I have developed a 2 step process that is super easy to follow and has been really effective for me. Take a look!

There are only 2 steps to the process, and you can’t mess it up. Trust me!

You’ll need a dry ease board or poster board, and a notebook.

First things first, set your phone timer for 20 minutes. Using your dry ease board or poster board, write down everything going on in your head for 20 minutes. Don’t worry about being neat, or forming complete sentences. Just jot everything down in 20 minutes.

When the times goes off, YOU STOP WRITING!!!!

Next, you want to review everything you wrote down and group like things together and began to organize each thing with greater details, action items, or ideas. Use your notebook to gather all your thoughts and create checklist, set deadlines and further plan out the things from your brain dump.

Continue to plan and work on these things daily. Once you have completed everything that’s when it time to perform another “Brain Dump”.

Be sure to come back and tell me all about your brain dump experience.

Natural Hair Styling with Me | Blogmas

Hey Passionista!

Y’all know me and Queen P have a love- hate relationship right. But today, we are actually getting along. I decided to style her using the Octocurl styling tool for some luscious curls.

I think Queen P likes when I give her big, fluffy, and free curly styles. What y’all think?

*Disclaimer: Queenie P is what I call my hair. She has her own personality and attitude- so I named her?

Aloe Vera for Beautiful Skin | Blogmas

Hey Passionista!

Continuing our conversation from yesterday, today I want to talk about using aloe vera on your skin. If you missed yesterday’s blog…. STOP, click here and go view it and come back.

Aloe Vera is a key ingredient for skin toners, anti-aging serums, and acne treatment. One simple thing that you can do to improve your skin and maintain health glowing skin is rub aloe vera on your skin before you get in the shower. Yep! Its that simple.

Now, don’t expect to see immediate results. But if you keep this practice in your skincare routine, you’ll see improvement over time.

Practice this biweekly:

Cut a Aloe Vera leave in half.

Rub the Aloe Vera gel directly on your skin before you get in the shower.

Shower as normal.

Air dry and moisturizer.

You’re Welcome!

xoxo
