6 Ways to Organize Your Mind
Some people thrive under pressure. They feel that multitasking has become a sort of art form... a constant challenge to see just how many things or tasks they can handle at once?

If you're that sort of person, you would rather be overwhelmed than under, right? But the truth is, you may be spreading yourself too thin. 

The rest of us find ourselves in a perpetual state of distraction, stress and overwhelm, which happen to all be symptoms of a disorganized mind.


The key to a less hectic, less stressful life is not in simply organizing your desk, but organizing your mind.


How can you really organize and prioritize your mind when you have SO much on the agenda for the day? 

Health and wellness coach, Margaret Moore, MBA, shares what you can do to immediately better organize your mind. 

The 6 principles of an organized mind:
  1. Intentional: your brain is focused on where it should be
  2. Deep: really focus on ONE thing at a time
  3. Agile: the opposite of multitasking
  4. Diverse
  5. Energized: physical
  6. Energized: emotional
