Organizing your life to be easier; the title sounds good, right? How do you do that with work, family, commitments coming at you from every direction?
We all have hectic lives, I run my Home Staging business in Orange County NY and have a family, participate in clubs and activities on a daily basis. Probably much like you, so how can you gain your sanity? The first thing to do is realize what you need to do, and how much time it takes to do each item. Realizing how much time additional tasks require will help you organize and prioritize.
Having a checklist can help some people keep track of what they have done and what needs to be done. When you have a lot on your plate it is easy to forget things, and then you feel like you get nothing done. Set up a routine by segmenting your day by morning/afternoon/evening and extra tasks. Divide those segments of the day with what you need to do.
An example for the morning would be everything from getting ready in the morning, making the bed tiding up the bedroom, making and eating breakfast and pulling out something for dinner picking up and then collecting items before heading out the door. Do the same for each segment of the day.
Realize what the extra tasks are that need to be accomplished, these are the odd jobs that you need to decide when and where to fit them in each day to tackle the extra craze.
Set yourself a schedule if you have to if it makes it easier. I have a friend that goes so far as designating each day of the week for something extra she likes to do for herself. Monday’s she concentrates on her beauty routine because Monday starts with M like makeup, OK little too much for me too, but do whatever works so that the craze of life becomes easier daily.
And don’t forget, although everyone has pressures and you feel they may be putting demands on you, it’s OK to say no if you cannot do something. Be honest with yourself.
Set your goal for 2018 to have an easier life!
