Tips to Get and Stay Organized

Making a certain behavior into a habit takes about two months on average, so don’t get discouraged if you can’t make new habits stick right away. Committing to new organizational habits is a great way to reduce stress and the time that you spend on chores. Here are some tips on how to get and stay organized:

  • Set small achievable steps to getting organized rather than one large goal
  • Keep to do lists and mark items off as you complete them, this makes each task into a small accomplishment
  • Get on a reliable sleep schedule, waking up at a set time will lead to more productivity in the rest of your day
  • Get on a workout schedule that fits your needs, whether you’re a yogi or an avid runner, exercise gives you the energy that you need to be productive  
  • Make your bed every morning, start your day by completing an easy task that sets your day in motion
  • Declutter your living spaces, break up your organization by room so you don’t get overwhelmed by taking on your whole house
  • Purge items you don’t need, including extraneous papers and unworn clothing
  • Organize your home in a way that makes most sense to you, just because one thing works for someone doesn’t mean it will be the best for you
  • Tackle messes when they are small, don’t let piles of clothes, dishes or items accumulate into a large chore
  • Plan meals before you grocery shop and take stock of what you already have, this will prevent double purchasing items
  • Make a list of where you need to go before running errands, this will save time from going back and forth
