Life getting too overwhelming? No worries, it happens to most of us. One recommendation I can make is to get yourself organized. With these easy tips for organization, you’re going to get ahead and enjoy your days more.
I know what you’re thinking, easier said than done, right? Well if you really want to make improvements, the best thing you can do is make changes in your current lifestyle. Here are four easy to try tips for improving your organization both at home and at work.
On the top of my tips for organization is having a smart approach. What you should first do is come up with a step by step listing of the things or the place you want to organize. Office desk? Bathroom vanity? Closet drawers? Preparing this list will give you a clear idea of what needs to be done.
Not only that, it will also help convert a seemingly enormous task into something simple and approachable. With this approach, you are not doing any organizing, but just planning to organize – two very different things!
Buy Some Organizational Features
What motivates you to tidy up? Flipping through the pages of home improvement magazines that have the most organized homes or watching the coolest cribs on TV, of course. But, it is also important that you look at some of the organizational features in your home and office.
For example, if you deal with a lot of files and paperwork at work, you should consider purchasing an attractive file holder for your desk or a filing cabinet to hold all those files.
At home, if you are a shoe maniac, then buying a beautiful shoe rack will get rid of the shoe mess around your door area and also make your home look beautiful and sleek.
However, something important to consider is that buying a plethora of organizational pieces will not work for you unless you need them. For example, a bookshelf with no books serves no other purpose than crowding your home. Look around and see what you need then plan for some shopping.
Organize From Small to Big
Tidying up at times requires some motivation. It is, therefore, best to start with the tiniest spaces and move on to the larger spaces.
For example, if you are at home, starting with the bathroom will motivate you to move onto the living room or bedroom.
In the office, start by returning the scattered pens to the pot, stacking your files. This way, even when you stop, you will have made a lot of good progress.
The Art of Letting Go
We are all hoarders to an individual level. We accumulate so much stuff starting from sentimental gifts to the things we buy across our lifetimes that before we know it, we are knee-dip into stuff we don’t need.
But, with holding on to all of those “things,” you also are holding on to some anxiety.
The best organization tip is only to keep the things that you use. Let go of what you don’t need, and you’ll instantly notice how spacious your home or office becomes.
