Are you trying to become more organised? We have all been there! Keep reading for our best organisational tips.
Create a checklist!
Create a to-do list either every night or every morning. This gives you a clearer idea of everything that you will need to get done either that day or the following day. This will help you to feel more organised. Base your list of the previous days list, add the things that you did not get done the day before. Being able to check things off your list throughout the day will help you to feel more organised and you will feel a sense of achievement.
Create a meal plan.
This will save you so much time, more than you would expect. Create a meal plan every few days, even do some meal prepping on top of this. Spend an evening cooking your meals 2-3 days in advance, then all you have to do is reheat them. This comes in especially handy if you are working full time. Trust us when we say, you will once again feel so much more productive and organised by simply planning and prepping your meals every few days.
Follow a routine (especially on the days that you are working).
Having a daily routine ensures that you get the tasks that you need to get completed, you will get them done every day. Having a routine keeps your brain happy and this helps you to create good habits, which is something we all need in life. Try this out and see how having a routine works for you.
You will feel so much more organised and productive once you declutter. When decluttering you do not have to get rid of your belongings permanently instead why not consider renting a storage unit?

This goes without saying…but get enough sleep!
How do you expect to get any more organised if you are sleep deprived? The recommendation is to get at least eight hours sleep a night. It will surprise you how much more motivated and refresh you feel once you start getting the sleep that you need. If you are sleep deprived, this will lead you to become very exhausted and can lead you to getting next to no work done. You will lack any motivation. Get the sleep you need!
Do not be afraid to say no!
Do not be afraid to turn down tasks when it gets too much. Otherwise, you will end up burning yourself out. We know how hard it is sometimes to say no but trust us you will feel so much better when you do not take on the tasks that you do not have the time for. If work gives you an extra task and you are already overwhelmed ask a workmate and see if they can take on a little extra work. This will make your head feel clearer and it means that you can organise yourself that bit better.
Have a place for everything!
This will make it harder to lose things if you give them a proper place. Get into the habit of putting things back in the place where they belong. This will save you a lot of time, you will not spend ages looking for things that are right in front of you. This will keep you a lot more organised. A more organised start to your day will help the rest of your day to run smoothly as you will no be beginning your morning stressed.
We hope these tips help you to feel more organised. We know how overwhelming it can be sometimes to keep yourself organised but follow these tips and your mind will feel a lot more at ease!
