Between work, studies and everything else it can be difficult to find time to do anything at all. Rather than getting stressed about it, you should look at ways in which you can organise your life better. So here are a couple of tips on how you can organise your life and stay organised.
Write it down
Trying to remember that one task that you have to do from a meeting last week will just add to your stress. Instead of trying to remember to do things from memory it’s much easier to have it written down. Whether it’s in a diary or notepad, be sure to write down all the important things that you have to do in the coming weeks. Your phone is also a handy tool as you can write everything in your calendar to remind you to do tasks on the day.
Set goals and deadlines
When you are writing down all your important tasks, it can also help write down your weekly goals and deadlines. So if you want to get a certain amount of studying done, write down when you would be able to do it and how much you want to get done. This means that you won’t get overwhelmed with the amount of work that you have to do later on as you’ve already made a proper schedule for it.
Make sure everything has its proper place
Having a messy apartment can make it difficult to find anything. So one of the first things that you need to do is to make sure that your living space is organised. An easy way to do this is to get extra storage boxes and to label them. Maximising the use of negative space in your home, such as putting shelves above your desk, can also help.
Declutter your space
One of the best ways to keep yourself organised is to regularly clean your home and work space. The more of a mess there is, the more time you’ll spend trying to find things. So allocate some time every week where you do half an hour of cleaning. If there are things that you don’t use anymore, such as clothes or appliances, then you should look at giving them away to charity. This will make it easier to find things and you won’t have to worry about cleaning up a huge mess later in the month.
Keeping everything organised can take up some time and effort, but it will be worth it in the long run.
