THEY TACKLE ONE THING AT A TIME. Take organizing your house for instance. When you are standing in the middle of your house you can look in four different directions and see something that needs rearranging or tidying. Instead of getting overwhelmed at this thought, decide on one area and tackle it. If your whole house needs organizing, then focus on one room at a time. As you organize each room and experience the tranquil feeling it brings, you’ll be more motivated to start on the next room on your to do list. Try this concept of handling one thing at a time in all areas of your life to get it organized.
THEY GET RID OF WHAT THEY DON’T NEED. How do you know what can be tossed? Experts say if you haven’t used this in the last six months, then it goes in the trash. Obviously, there are things, like mementos, that you may not be using all of the time, but it’s something you want to keep. So besides the keepsakes, you want to be looking at other objects and things you haven’t used in the last six to twelve months, and just go ahead and toss them or give them away. It’s safe to say if you haven’t used it in the last year, you can do without it.
THEY UTILIZE ONLINE. Do online, everything you can. Pay your bills, buy groceries, buy clothes ONLINE. It’s going to save you time and allow more freed up time to spend doing other things that you enjoy so that you don’t feel like you’re constantly rushed, running out of time, unable to get to the things that you really want to do. It’s also going to help reduce your overwhelmed feeling and that everything is piling up and never feeling that you’re getting anything done.
THEY GET UP 30 MINUTES EARLIER EACH DAY. This extra time gives you time to relax. To just be, before everyone starts demanding your time. Use this special 30 minutes to think of all that you’re thankful for, and all you have to look forward to. Meditate, pray, do something that is just for you. Get yourself in-tune with where you are at the time. Allow yourself some time to plan out what you need to do and what you would like to accomplish for the day. If you start your day out organized, then the rest of your day is more likely to follow in that manner.
THEY ENLIST HELP WHEN NEEDED. Experts say how incredibly helpful utilizing others can help keep you organized, because it then frees up your time for you. For example: If you are able to hire someone to help clean your house, then do it. If you can ask family or friends to babysit or to run out and do errands for you, then go ahead and do that. Utilizing others’ help can definitely allow you more time to get everything done that you need to do. Later on, you can always return the favor when life slows down and you have more time on your hands to help others.
