Sometimes life can get very stressful and there does not seem to be any structure left. To avoid getting lost in the mess we call life, here are some tips and tricks on how to stay organised and keep an overview over deadlines, appointments and chores.
Disclaimer: This tips work for me personally and I am not in the position to guarantee that all of them might work for you too.
1.) Keeping a portable calendar/ journal
This helped me having a general overview of deadlines. I mark them with highlighters: different colours for different occasions.
2.) Creating routines
Sounds annoying but it’s actually pretty helpful. Start easy by just creating an outfit for the next day or packing your bag with all the essentials you need for work, uni, school or whatever your plans are. This saves time for getting ready, eating or for self care in the morning.
3.) Clean your social media
We all spent a lot of time online so we are easily getting lost in the online spheres of social media. By cleaning out is meant that you kind of check your feed and unfollow, unfriend etc. people/pages which you do not actually care about. A youtuber (@neonfiona) which i adore made a wonderful video about it (find it here).
4.) Goal Setting
Again it makes life a bit less messy if you start making to-do lists. Only write down achievable goals like putting on new bedsheets or messaging a friend instead of goals which need a lot of time and energy to be achieved. Keep an eye on the minimal aims and do not get overwhelmed by writing pages on your list instead of actually getting things done. As an extra you will feel accomplished and happy if you are able to tick the box 😄
5.) Take time for yourself
Taking time off for self care is mandatory in this stressful world. So remind yourself to relax and do things you enjoy.

6.) Plan your week ahead
This is an idea for lazy Sundays. Get your planner, check your appointments and write them down to stay on track.
If there is more time you can think about what to cook, which groceries you have to buy etc.
I hope those tricks created a basic understanding on how I keep myself organised. If you have more tips please write them in the comment section ✨
