If we do not organize, our lives we may face issues like:

  • Less sleep.

  • Undecidedness.

  • Anxiety, depression, stress.

  • Bad relationships and commitments.

  • Lack of choices in life.

Let’s explore some ways on how to do it.

1.      Develop An Organized Lifestyle

 2.      Plan Ahead

Do you think planning makes things more structured?

If yes, then why not use an app to make plans. These plans will make your routine structured, therefore helping to organize your life.

Apps like Todo list or calendar on your phone can help you to manage your routine.

They can assist you in charting your plans over the day, week, or months!

For example, if you go into the template mall section in PDFelement. You can select a daily planner of your liking and click it. Now you can note down all of the tasks that you need to do and keep track of yourself.

These apps offer many advantages; they help you:

  • Plan and schedule your day (e.g., cleaning, grocery shopping, etc.)

  • Check how long each task will take.

Another advantage of these apps is that if you skip any work, you can always go back to see its details to do it or reschedule it. For example, if you missed an assignment. You can go back, find the details and perform that task.

Laura Vanderkam’s book title is: “You have more time than you think . 168 hours.”

Do you understand the title?

It explains…

How much time you have if you manage things!

So, why are you wasting your time?

Make a To-do-list and manage your week’s assignment.

3.    Don’t go against Nature

 “Constructing your thoughts and giving them a routine is an aspirational living.”

 If we develop habits that are against nature, we may fall sick and lose energy in every task we do.

You need to:

  • Wake up early in the morning.

  • Go for healthy food.

  • Exercise daily

Good habits are like your best friend, always there to cheer you up.

Quit bad habits! Because they rob your time, happiness, and health.

Note down the habits which inspire you and set your routine according to it.

Well, it’s a challenging task!

But do not forget my friend, ‘‘Nothing is impossible”.  

4.    Stability over perfection

 ‘All’ or ‘Nothing’ approach to life is not good; it sabotages our daily routine.

This happens by making unrealistic plans, which can never succeed in the first place. And when they fail, rather than making a new plan. We stop working on the task altogether.

Let me tell you how to make workable plans to avoid this problem.

Examples of Unrealistic plan
Realistic versions of the plans
I’ll exercise daily. I’ll exercise 4 times a week.
I’ll save 70% of my salary. I’ll save 20% of my salary.
Never eat out. Proper diet! I’ll dine out once a week.
Never watch Netflix! I’ll watch 2 hours on Netflix.
I’ll go out with my family every day. I’ll go out with my family on weekends/once a week.

Work on those ideas which make you comfortable with your hectic routine.

Never underestimate yourself!

A little effort can make you a winner.

5.      Find a balance in your life!

To be called a work perfectionist by other people, we usually ignore our happiness and health. It happens because we need to work 24/7 in which we don't give ourselves any time.

By not giving proper time, we may fall sick. This may lead to many health problems like blood pressure, heart diseases, obesity, high cholesterol, and mental disorders.

Unbalancing is not the right approach; there should be balance related to every aspect of living.

find a balance in your life

To achieve that balance, you need to follow a good routine. This includes managing yourself, not time. Like:

  • Take out time for physical activity.

  • Get yourself enough sleep and avoid night parties.

  • Plan out with family and friends on weekends.

  • Watch movies with your favorite popcorn to refresh yourself.

  • Give yourself a break once in a year and go for trips.

Another essential method to find balance is looking at things that make us happy and incorporating those things as part of our lives.

This recharges our ‘life’s battery,’ helps us achieve happiness, and can work out well.

6.      Prioritize appropriately

Do you free your time for everything?

To make yourself available for everyone is not your priority!!

 “Learn to say no.”

Make yourself a list of what to prioritize and what to deprioritize.

  • Welcome things that make you happy. Leave those which make you unhappy.

  • Choose those activities which leave a high impact on your life. Leave those who have low impact.

Go after your essential tasks and prioritize your schedule accordingly.

Make efficient decisions where to spend your energy and time and live a tension-free life.

4 Ways to Declutter your Life

One of the most crucial self-care is “Decluttering.”  It helps you to take care of yourself and your home.

Decluttering helps you to reduce stress. It helps you in your relationships, improves your lifestyle, better focus, and high self-esteem.

If we do not declutter, we become messy, uncomfortable, exhausted, sick. We find ways to escape because we do not get to our comfort zone, becoming mentally ill.

Methods on how to declutter individual aspects of our life:

Home

Home is where you feel complete.

Keeping your house neat, doing dishes, cleaning, and maintaining is an unpaid job!

But do you know what you get in the end?

Satisfaction!

A word that gives you relief; makes you super fresh and active.

Work

You spend most of your active hours in the office, and you are left with zero energy by the end of the day.

Do you like to be organized and spacious?

We know it is hard to feel organized when your mind is in chaos, so is your house and office.
