How To || Organise Your Life






I've never been organised. I've never been organised when it comes to birthdays, school work, application forms, deadlines. I've always got a constant to do list that could make twelve chapters in a book and if you had asked me two weeks ago what my bedroom was like I'd say it was like hoarder heaven. However, I have dealt with that and over a period of two days I started to make a change, a change that I'm still currently working on: I organised my life, my college work and my bedroom.
Now I'm going to try and convince you to do the same.

Have you ever tidied your house or your room and instantly felt at least 50 times better? I have, and here's how I got started..

BEDROOM

I've always loved a clean and tidy room but hated the process of doing it but now it's spotless I want to keep it that way.

1. Pick up things you want to keep from the floor. DVDs, make up, clothes....and put them away.

2. Pick up the rubbish from the floor and sweep.

3. Clear everything off your bed and put your sheets in the wash (Fresh sheets are the best)

Ok so your floor is clean,  your bed is clean....

4. Start putting things that aren't in their places....in their places. Clothes, books etc. If it hasn't got a place then make a place or throw it out.

If you want too have a sneaky look at my room then there's a room tour up on Elysian's youtube channel which you can watch here.

WORK/COLLEGE

1. Create a clear space for you to begin, either a desk or a table.

2. What's the one thing that's due to be handed in in the next 3 days? Do it.

3. Create a to do list of everything else you need to get done.

4. Write down the deadlines next to them.

Before I got organised I never knew what homework I had, or when it was due but now I keep all my homework in one little notebook.

You now know what needs to be done now and what can wait a little. I instantly feel more productive when I've completed something on my to do list, no matter how big or small. Once you've ticked one thing off you'll want to tick another thing off.
Something that really brings my productivity to a hault is television, I can't just watch one episode I have to watch 2 or 3 and by the time I've watched two or three that's a few hours wasted and I don't feel like doing anything then, so instead of coming home or getting up and thinking 'I'll watch an hour of television and then get started, complete the tasks you wanted to do first and then watch television.



LIFE

Something I struggled with before getting organised was the social side of life. I spend so much time in work and in college I was missing out on time spent with my family and friends.

1. Organise to meet up with friends at least once a month, be it for lunch or a walk.

2. Visit family often, make it a priority to visit your parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles, cousins.

If you're like me your very focused on work and sometimes I make the mistake of putting it before my education, my health, family and friends.



I hope this little 'How To' has helped you a little bit to get started on organising your life.

  3. Your handwriting is lovely. What I have found helpful recently is doing things as and when. So instead of leaving that used cotton wool on the side, go and put it in the bin. Instead of getting change and leaving your clothes on the floor put them away or on the chair. Have a look at this post, when I saw it it clicked together with what I had been starting to do: http://thenectarcollective.com/declutter-your-life/

  5. I love all these organisation tips. I can't do anything with a messy room, I always have to do that first before I can do anything, my worst habit is not putting clothes away. I fold them up and put them on my bed or move them to my desk and they sit there for days!
