So here we are, the first MONDAY in February. It’s so hard to believe we are already down 1 month this year. As I was trying to figure out how to best break up my passions into more manageable blogs, I decided this will probably be the one topic I do on both. For those of you who are working from home, an organized home can help a ton. I’m still working on this, by no means do I have it “all together”, But, I’d love to give you ideas any way I can.
There are lots of ways and areas that would help you if they were organized. Having a morning routine, a kitchen that runs efficiently, all your needs for getting ready for the day… all organized, can help.
Take a minute to think through your day, what are your chaotic moments??? What could you do to help those moments run more smoothly??? Is it the morning rush??? Maybe it’s witching hour??? Is bedtime crazy??? I want to help you tackle these areas in your life.
Here are 3 quick tips to help you right now:
- Spend 5 minutes before bed writing your TO DO list for the next day. I promise this will help you sleep better knowing that everything is written down,. It will also help your focus in the morning and throughout the day.
- Focus on one area to make changes at a time. If mornings are ridiculous, spend some time figuring out why, then make a plan to help calm the chaos and implement it. Once you feel confident it is working, you can move on to another area if you need to.
- Set a close time for your day. This is one I’m bad about. I like to work until I just can’t keep my eyes open. In a perfect world, I’d get to sleep in later and things would be okay. However, I still have to be up by no later than 8:00 AM, so if I go to bed at 3:00 AM I’m only getting 5 hours of sleep, which is not enough. Shutting the computer down at a specific time, gives you a break and a chance to relax and get to bed early so you are more rested and get more accomplished the next day.
I’m looking forward to helping us all get organized in all areas of our lives. What are your 3 biggest areas you need help organizing???
