4 ways to conquer information overload with Mind Mapping

 

According to a recent survey, a shocking 94% of knowledge workers have at some point felt overwhelmed by information to the point of powerlessness. A 2012 study by the University of California suggests that current data levels are the equivalent of everyone consuming 12 hours of information each day. In practice, that means that three quarters of our time is spent receiving information – no wonder we are all getting overwhelmed! Too much information can significantly diminish our attention span and focus, not to mention hinder our ability to be creative. The impact on individuals varies from simple time-wasting to serious stress. For organisations, this can result in a damaging loss of productivity. But fear not. You can transform crushing quantities of information into something meaningful and give your brain the freedom to think using our Mind Mapping technique.

7 everyday challenges Mind Mapping can help you to overcome

Mind Mapping can be applied to any task to help you think with clarity and boost your understanding and performance. When you use Mind Maps on a daily basis, you will find that your life becomes more productive, creative and stress-free on every level. The number of uses Mind Mapping has are endless. Here are seven everyday challenges that Mind Mapping can help you to overcome.

1. Remember every detail

If you’re struggling to remember key information, useful ideas and important facts, try using a Mind Map to give your memory a boost. Through the use of short, memorable keywords, Mind Maps chunk information into core themes, which trigger connections in the brain to help you remember more. To recall specific pieces of information in your Mind Map, make them stand out using colour. Changing the colour of the branches links the visual with the logical and creates mental shortcuts to boost your memory. Adding images will also improve your ability to recall information. They’re processed instantly by the brain, so you’re more likely to remember them than long sentences. Personalising your Mind Maps with images and colours strengthens your connection with its content to help you remember every detail. Read more.
