Easy Everyday Tips for Staying Organized

Welcome back to our blog! Today’s post will be straight to the point.

Staying organized is essential for a stress-free and productive life. Study shows that a tidy room reduces stress hence the quote “tidy room, tidy mind”. Decluttering can be difficult, but it’s definitely worth it. Getting rid of the things you no longer need or want, creates space for you to be creative. How do you ensure you stay organized without it becoming a big project? Here are some easy everyday tips to help you stay organized:

  • Create a to-do list

Start your day by creating a to-do list. Write down all the tasks you need to accomplish and prioritize them. This will help you stay focused and ensure that nothing important is overlooked.

  • Declutter your space

A cluttered space can lead to a cluttered mind, for example, tidying up before bed. A lot of us probably go from the road to our beds and it’s understandable considering the stress of living, but it shouldn’t become a lifestyle. I wake up on some mornings and I’m looking forward to seeing my living room because I’ve done the hard work of clearing out toys, neatly arranging the throw and cushions and a little general cleaning. What you may not know is that these little things you allow to slide are actually stressors that stimulate fatigue. So before bed tonight, be sure to tidy up your living room.

Clean up your kitchen before and after cooking.

The kitchen is the heart of the home, maybe it’s the reason why it’s that one space in the house that always requires cleaning. However, if you’re like me, I like to clean up after every cooking because I like to enjoy my meal with a clean kitchen in mind. It doesn’t matter how many times this happens, your kitchen should be clutter-free. Get drawer organizers, remove items you don’t use regularly from the work surface and put them in the cabinets, leave out the few that you really need and keep them tidy, clean your stove after cooking, get kitchen organizers, oh! and don’t forget to wash your sink regularly 😉

Take some time each day to declutter, put things back in their designated places and get rid of any unnecessary items. A clean and organized environment will help you think more clearly and be more productive.

  • Develop a routine

Having a daily routine can help you stay on track and avoid wasting time. What's the first thing you do in the morning when you wake up? Whether it's a word of prayer or a few pages from the bible or a book you're reading, stick to the routine and prepare your mind for the day ahead.

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “As you lay your bed, so you’ll lie in it”, well making your bed right after you get out of it is a good routine to pick up if you don't do this. The day has enough to wear you out already, you should be looking forward to coming home to a well-made bed to REST. Dare I say there’s no way you’ll stay organized without proper rest; so make that bed – once you get up from it, sis.

  • Take regular breaks

This is so important, staying organized can be a daunting task if you miss out on taking breaks in-between. Some days, let things be, use this time to relax, recharge, and clear your mind then come back to the chores. Taking short breaks can actually improve your productivity and help you stay focused when you return to your tasks.
