Why is it so hard to organize my life?

Feeling organized in life can be such a struggle, right? It’s like trying to wrangle a bunch of wild cats! But fear not, my friend, because I’ve got some tips on how to be more organized in life.

First of all, know that I am right there with you feeling like a hot mess a big majority of the time (and then I get super offended when my friends are surprised when my phone is charged, I remember my purse, or I’m actually on time). 

But even if you FEEL like being organized is a struggle, know that becoming organized and feeling like you have your life together is POSSIBLE.

How do I teach myself to be organized?

I’m a huge proponent of using routines, lists, and lots of structure to stay organized and focused. 

Note: I know it sounds horrible, but it’s actually so freeing because you always know what needs to be done, you always feel like you have a plan, and it completely frees your mind to focus on things that really matter instead of a nagging task that you think you should be doing.

First things first, start by decluttering your physical and digital spaces. Get rid of all those unnecessary items that are just taking up space and causing chaos. Trust me, you’ll feel so much lighter once you do this.

A great starting point is to declutter your mind with this ultimate guide to doing a brain dump. However, decluttering your physical space will have a huge impact on how you feel. I find that the state of my home is always a direct reflection of the state of my mind (messy house = messy mind).

Next, create a daily or weekly schedule to help you stay on track. Write down your tasks and responsibilities and allocate specific time slots for each one. This will help you prioritize and make sure nothing falls through the cracks.

Another trick is to break down big tasks into smaller, more manageable ones. It’s easier to tackle something when it doesn’t feel overwhelming. Plus, checking off those little tasks gives you a great sense of accomplishment!

Oh, and don’t forget about the power of lists! Whether it’s a to-do list or a grocery list, writing things down helps keep your thoughts organized and ensures you don’t forget anything important.

Finally, give yourself some grace. Life can be messy sometimes, so don’t beat yourself up if things don’t always go according to plan. Just take a deep breath and keep moving forward.

What are 3 ways to stay organized?

Getting organized and actually keeping yourself organized can be a game-changer when it comes to productivity and reducing stress. Here are three simple yet effective ways to stay organized:

1. Create a system

Establishing a system that works for you is crucial. Whether it’s using a physical planner, digital tools, or a combination of both, find a method that helps you keep track of your tasks, appointments, and deadlines. Consistency is key here – make it a habit to update and review your system regularly.

2. Prioritize and declutter

Take some time to prioritize your tasks and responsibilities. Identify what needs immediate attention versus what can be tackled later. This will help you allocate your time and energy more efficiently. Additionally, decluttering – both your mental and your physical space – can have a significant impact on your mental clarity. Get rid of unnecessary items and create an organized environment that helps you focus.

3. Break tasks into manageable chunks

Large projects or overwhelming to-do lists can often leave us feeling scattered and unproductive. Combat this by breaking down tasks into smaller, more manageable chunks. Set specific goals for each chunk and tackle them one at a time. This approach not only makes the workload feel more attainable but also allows for better focus on each individual task.

Remember, staying organized is an ongoing process that requires consistency and adaptability as life throws curveballs at us. Experiment with different strategies until you find what works best for you!
