How to Get Organized
By Sara Butler
If your life feels a little out of control and you feel stressed out all the time, then your organizational skills may be to blame. It’s difficult to feel centered when chaos is surrounding you. There are some very simple ways you can organize your life to help relieve stress and improve performance at work and at home. Here are some simple tips to help you learn to get organized!
Get a Calendar
If you want to organize your life for success, then you must get a calendar. Well, buy a calendar and use it.
Many people struggle to accomplish their goals and get things done. When you work full time and have a family at home waiting for you, it can feel even more overwhelming. Buying and using a calendar is a step in the right direction to help you gain control.
Break your week down by how much time you have available. Then, sit down with your calendar at the beginning of each week and write down everything that must get done during the week. Once those things get put down, add stuff into the leftover time slots such as going to the gym or the store. This will help you familiarize yourself with what you need to do during the week and then attack it!
Find a Routine
Once you’ve got your calendar going, establish a routine to get the things you must get done during the week done, such as your chores. What this means is to go to the store to do your shopping for the week on the same day each week. Do your laundry on the same day and try to pencil in some time for your favorite television show too. Once you make a routine for chores, it’ll make it all feel more manageable.
Keep a List
Things don’t have to be written in stone for the week, which is why you should keep a running list. Jot things down that need to be done as they pop into your mind and keep a notebook handy to write it down so you don’t forget -- or keep a list on your phone. Whatever works best for you!
Once you have a running list, you can see where to fit stuff in on your calendar for the week.
