Organise your life in these 5 simple tips, a pin for pinterest.


There are many benefits to organise your life including increasing your productivity levels. In addition, being organised means that you can focus on tasks or things on your to do list that are more important, so ultimately saving you a lot more time in the long run.

I have also read that there are many health benefits to being organised too! A study was conducted comparing those with a tidy desk area to those with a messy desk area, and findings suggested that those with a tidy desk area were more likely to make healthier food choices. For example, reaching for an apple instead of snacking on chocolate.

Staying organised can also help reduce stress and encourage a better sleeping habit! I know how much better I feel when my room is tidy and it just makes me WANT to sleep there and just have a better overall experience.

Anyway, today I am bringing you 5 simple ways to help you organise your life. Let’s jump straight into them…

Make note of things

One way to organise your life is to make a note of things. By this I mean keep a note of anything important including; dates, commitments, your blog schedule etc. Writing things down will help you keep on top of your daily/weekly/monthly duties and also act as a reminder of what needs to be done.

I personally have my own diary and I like to write down by hand, however you can also use your laptop/computer or even the notes app on your phone (or something similar). For blogging I use my blogging planner by ofaglasgowgirl which you can check out here (AF), and this just helps me to keep on track with all things blogging related. I personally just like to keep this separated from my normal planner/diary because then I don’t feel over powered by everything going on in my life.

I also like to write down a list with my goals for the month as this encourages me to aim for my goals, and I am more likely to stick to them.

Give everything a home

This might sound obvious but sometimes it can be easy to just not put things back where they belong. Therefore, making sure everything in your home is in it’s place will help to keep your home tidy. Also it will make your space feel much better, and more positive because “a tidy home is a tidy mind”. This is essential to organise your life.

I also love to change things up sometimes and move things around to make it feel like a “new space”, or bring colour into my home. Sometimes this also inspires you to organise a space much better!

Declutter regularly

Another way to organise your life is to make sure everything has a home, and this also requires a nice declutter. I also recommend doing this as regularly as you can. Doing this regularly ensures you do not keep things that you do not need. Therefore, it is important to schedule time each week/month to organise your home and make sure you stick to this consistently. You will honestly feel so much better about it if you do!

Also decluttering regularly will benefit your health and ensure that you are living in a happy, tidy space and you won’t be working in a space that makes you feel stressed or annoyed. This is so important.

Keep only what you need

This links into the point above but, more stuff equals more clutter. Therefore, be strict with yourself and only keep what you actually need. Also having fewer things means you can enjoy them more and appreciate what you have. Therefore, only keep what you need and this will help organise your life.

One way to do this is to take a minimalist approach to life! I love the freedom you get from allowing yourself to be free from this need to possess items. I am trying my best to be as minimal as possible and instead turn my time to appreciating life rather than possessions.

I personally find that not having much stuff around me actually makes me feel a whole lot better. Plus all that time that would be spent looking to “buy things” can be used in a different way. For example, enjoying other aspects of my life; exploring or running or spending time with others. These are the most important things for me and my life.

Work hard

In order to organise your life this does require time and work, but it also does save time in the long run. I personally love putting in the work to make sure the space I am living in works for me. But I have always been brought up with a hard work ethic, it is definitely something that runs in my family.

Putting in the time always equals results, and if that is what you are looking for then you need to work hard for it. Get your life organised now so you can enjoy your life in the long term.
