Everyones the same when it comes to getting organised! Most people are rubbish at it. Ive spent most of my adult life trying to get organised and I’ve failed a lot of the time. This year I have made it my main goal to get organised so I feel less stressed.
In 2017 I started this blog thinking that I would get really organised and plan out loads of blogs, that never happened and for most of the year I failed to upload. This made me really sad because as I mentioned in meditation Monday last week I love blogging and I find it very relaxing. So the fact that I couldn’t get organised enough that I found time to do it every week annoyed me. So at the end of December I sat down and I spent a whole day planning my blog, planning what I wanted to do every week/month. It was a lot of work but I’m so happy that its all planned out so I don’t have to worry about that every week. I also know what I’m doing with my time when it comes to blogging.
Another thing I’m doing to get more organised this year is making a plan for cleaning/tidying. I know this sounds so basic and something that someone my age should have organised by now, or shouldn’t even need to organise but the truth it I don’t have it organised. Im 22 and I still can’t remember that things need hoovering, or dusting. I really want to get into more of a routine before moving out into our own home just because if I can’t remember to do it with just having two rooms to do how am I going to cope when I have a whole house?! So this year I’ve made a plan for a day each week that the hoovering, dusting and tidying will get done.
For Christmas my mum and dad bought me a really nice diary from paper chase! This year I wanted to use a diary to plan out everyday so I knew what I was doing and I could be more productive rather than a day just slipping by. I’ve also put all the birthdays in it, I’ve even wrote in there when the cards need to be sent so I can remember and not forget like I did last year and ended up sending them 5 days after there birthday because stupid Facebook reminded me. I think diaries are underrated now, I don’t think people use them as much as they should, there also good to write how you feel so you can keep a track and also so you can look back to what you were doing on that day.
Ive made plans for food the week before loads of times but this year I’ve already started to really plan meal plans, Like what I’m even eating for breakfast and lunch. Purely because on the day of food I always rush to put something together because I had no idea what I was having. Also I eat more crap because I didn’t plan out what was ok for me to eat or not. Its so much better to have it all planned so I have a little bag of snacks ready to know what is for that day. Its also really going to help with my weight loss so thats always a plus!
So thats how I’m getting organised In 2018! Let me know how your getting organised in 2018! Have you already got it planned how your getting organised?
