Top tips for organisation!

Hello my lovelies!

I always have been and always will be an organised person. Many people over the years have asked me to share tips with them about getting organised. There are 5 top tips I tend to stick to and I think they are really effective. You have to want to be organised with these tips though! You can have all of the equipment but you need to use it properly. So here are my top tips for organisation

 1. Use a calendar
Most people get a new calendar every year and it just lies dormant in their room. If you want to be organised then a calendar is your new best friend. Write everything on it. Work deadlines, shifts at work, meet ups with friends, when your car insurance is due etc. Having everything in one place is a life saver and it leads to you not double booking either!

 2. Have important dates in an accessible place
My important dates at the moment are my exams. I have these written on a mock up calendar on my wall by my bed. I have printed them out in red to make them stand out. It's nice to have important dates somewhere other than your main calendar because it makes them stand out more and they aren't surrounded by lots of other information.

 3. Make time for relaxation
This is probably one of the most important tips. It is all well and good being organised but your body needs to rest too. Write your days off on your calendar and stick to them. If you are working 24/7 then your body is going to give up and it isn't healthy. I find if I make time for relaxation I sleep better and I am in a better mood when I tackle work.

 4. Write out to do lists
My mind feels so much better once I have written out all the information I need onto a page. I feel like it empties my brain. I like to do this for when I plan to bake. I write down all of the ingredients I need to get and the ones I have in the cupboard. This is also a great idea if you have lots of birthday's coming up. Write it down into a list so you can get birthday cards and presents all in one go!

5. Have a tidy space to work in
Tidy space, tidy mind. I physically cannot work when there is a mess around me. It stresses me out and makes me lose concentration. If you have a clean and tidy surrounding then you have less distractions. You can concentrate more on what you need to get done and not have to worry about anything else!

What are your organisational tips? Have I missed any out? :)
