How to Create a Mind Map

Mind Mapping is a method of jotting down a series of connected ideas to make it easier for you to collect and organize all types of information or to aid your memory to recall later

1) Start

The central idea or main topic is your starting point and is the topic you are going to explore. Introduce a name to the main topic

2) Branches

Next add branches, with the branches flowing from the main topic as the main themes, then you can explore each theme by adding child branches, you can continually add new branches without any restrictions

The ideas giving structure to your mind mapping will come easily as your brain continues to draw more associations from different concepts

3) Words

You should try to use only one word to name a sub-topic, this will help you make better associations, the use of keywords triggers connections in your brain, allowing you to remember more information

4) Color

Color coding your map links the visual with the logical, helping your brain not only to create more associations but also to categorize, highlight, analyze information and to identify more connections

5) Images

Images are process instantly by the brain and convey more information than words; they act as a visual stimulus to recall information

6) Brainstorming

Capture ideas, organize and prioritize them in a way that boosts understanding, add notes, attachments, links, icons, images, symbols and flags to enhance your concepts and ideas, check progress, prioritize, and much more by selecting from the following list:
