Psychology of a check list – why writing lists helps your brain

Our calendars and diaries are as popular today as they have ever been as there are many benefits of making lists! Not only do, ‘to do lists’, declutter your mind so you can focus, ticking them off also helps you feel like you have accomplished something!
