With my life being as hectic as it has been in the past months I thought that now would be the perfect opportunity to talk about the greatest art of them all. Organisation.
Are you like me with a thousand things going on in your mind right this second, then you have about a hundred different things that you really need to do? No matter how hard you try sometimes it feels like you are never going to catch up! like all that life stuff just seems to get in the way of just everything that you need to do! or maybe you have too many plans to do all the things you need and there is just not enough hours in the day to fit it all in! It can literally
Let us be honest. Life really can be a bitch at times, with it being so busy at times that it is hard to get a break from it and catching up seems like mission impossible. keeping organised can be a hard enough at times
Stop and breathe!
Honestly, this is probably one of the most important steps to getting yourself in a calm and organised, destressed state of mind. I know
So now that you are calm and you have taken a break, let’s think it all out! It may sound pretty cliche honestly, but I do believe in to-do lists. Even if they never seem to end. By sitting down and recapping everything you need to do can help you work out the most productive way to do things anything to be able to save a bit of time) as well as making it possible to remember everything you need to do! so a brilliant idea would be to keep an active
Also by making a list, you can priorities what actually needs to be down first and what can wait. Which means you will not need to stress because youwill
Use your phone
If we are honest with ourselves, how many times in life can you say that you do not carry your devices around with us 24/7? We literally have this amazing device that we do so much with. So why not use your smartphone as your personal PA? It is the ideal way of constant reminders and keeping yourself on ball.
If you can sort yourself so that all of your important dates and appointments in your calendar on your phone, and then set your phone to remind you a day before so you are always on top of the stuff that is coming up in your life. I find it really useful as well that you can even share an open calendar with loved ones that they can also add too. So not only are you reminding yourself, you are making sure everyone else is on point too..
I literally have 100 reminders set to go off to remind me at times to do things, because
But don’t get me wrong. You don’t need a fancy planner. A cheap and plain one will do just fine as long as you stick to writing everything you basically need too.
Find your Zone
And by Zone I mean your own space! like a little corner of your room or house, that is completely yours for getting stuff done! it is such a good idea, since I have gotten my own desk the way that I work has changed so much! I almost never have my laptop on the bed anymore! I am happy to sit in my ‘zone’ which I have personalised to be a bit of me, and I am able to craft and create for hours at a time without any distractions or excuses. Even if you can’t have an office like set up or anything like that. I would still suggest you have an appropriate space where you can get shit done. Its such an amazing tool!
So speaking of sticky things…. I have always had a massive love for sticky notes. I can quite easily have them everywhere. Full of reminders, info or just a few doodles and inspirational phrases. Plus leaving messages for yourself on pretty and coloured paper, can really brighten up a room.
Another really important factor for the skills of organisation. Time management. Ensuring that you are able to give yourself enough time to complete tasks and that you are able to take your time on whatever it is you are doing, is so so important. Don’t set yourself a task that is going to take you 3 hours, when you only have 1 hour free. you will be less likely to complete what it is you are doing, and that would just suck wouldn’t it? no one likes too many open projects at one time hey?
So that is all of the most important factors that I can think of, and methods that I actually use to keep myself organised and on the right path! I would always encourage all of my friends to try these ways to getting back on track! and never giving up, you can do whatever you put your mind to.
So guys. What are methods that you guys would suggest? I would love to hear your comments and suggestions below! so I look forward to hearing from you all.
