A CALENDAR

Every year the majority will purchase a new Calendar, it’s one of those essential items to have in your household. Being able to see the days, weeks and months ahead where you canĀ plan for your friends birthday or note down that dentist appointment. Maybe you’ve justĀ started a new job, you’ll need to make a note of that for sure don’t wanna be late on your first day!

YEARLY DIARY // PLANNER

A Personal DiaryĀ is like a calendarĀ you can keep on you at all times and put in important dates, on the go. I like to note down the days and times a new blog post is going published as well as documenting what videos I plan to create and upload for my YouTube channel, if I didn’t scribble all this information down somewhere my work would be all over the place.

NOTE BOOK // MEMO-PAD

With a Note Book or Memo Pad you can quickly jot downĀ short lists; whether it’s grocery shopping or making a note of your school work that’s due, it really helps to bullet point the main factors. Writing down lots ofĀ Ā lists can be extremely useful!

NOTICE BOARD

Combining the Memo Pad idea with a NoticeĀ Board, simply meansĀ that you can pin all those lists and bullet point factors onto a board ideally somewhere you’ll see fairly frequently. Mine is placed at the side of my computer so while I’m editing YouTube videos, writing essays or planning my next film I can look up at my notice board and see when all my University work is due.

DAILY REMINDERS

With the Note Book and Memo Pad you can also convert the lists into “chores” although Daily Reminders sound more encouraging, telling yourself you need to complete a chore probably won’t help you achieve that goal at the end of the day, so tell yourself it’s just a small reminder. Another trick is to put a small box next to the task so you can tick it off as you go along, thenĀ without realising it you’ll have ticked off all those boxes andĀ have had a productive day – It’llĀ feelĀ really rewarding in the end. If you’d prefer noting everything down via your mobile then check out this great app my friend Ana recommended me, to share with all of you!

LETS BE TIDY

no-reflection

Easier said than done but I promise if youĀ keep your room tidy it’s like keeping your mind tidy! You’ll be able to see where everything is and keep track of all the important things, it doesn’t always have to be your entire room you can simply organise your books, phone, computer, pencils, paints, makeup, wardrobeĀ just start somewhere small and slowly build your way up. Day by day (continuously) keeping your work area clean and organised, no one wants toĀ clean up the mount Everest of laundry after 2 weeks?! If you keep on track you’ll be more willing to sort it out.

STICKING TO A ROUTINE

An obvious one to mention but actually have a decent Sleeping Routine could go a long way, going to bed earlier so you feel fully recharged and ready for the next day! You can also include an Eating Schedule if you’re super keen; making sure you have breakfast, lunch and dinner at roughly the same time each day which is good for your digestive system as it’ll begin to get used to the time that it’s being fed (essentially) your body and mind will thank you for it.

STORAGE

Keeping all of your important files and letters in a decent Storage container is essential for when you need to keep an eye on bills and taxes, although this can also be useful for school and homework as well as organising things that are important to you. For months I used to lay my notebooks flat on the side and they took up so much space until I discoveredĀ this (John Lewis Ā£9) Letter Holder one day and it really made a difference to the space on my desk and overall just looks a lot neater which highly pleases my OCD.

LABELLING

As well as keeping your important documents in storage, inside them you could attachĀ Sticky Notes and Labels to name what everything is otherwise you’ll have to dig through all those files to find out what they are, even though they might be in organised slip cases you can’t see what each document is until you flick through. If you’re more on the creative side you can evenĀ Colour Code important informationĀ or certain things that you need to remember, I find labelling the most helpful so that I know what’s inside a box and don’t have to look insideĀ if I’m looking for something and can’t remember where I’ve placed it, by labelling whats inside you can also find things quicker .

That’s of course if you’ve kept it tidy šŸ˜‰

DE-CLUTTERING

This is probably the most importantĀ tip I can share with you,Ā throwing things away! All those notes, envelopes, scrap pieces of paperĀ and lists only last so long. If you have completed your daily reminders and ticked everything off, throw the note away as it’ll no longer be of use – Unless of course you know it’ll be helpfulĀ in the future.

Being minimal canĀ help a great deal in stickingĀ to a organised and productive lifestyle.
