Feeling overwhelmed? Need to organise your life? If you answered yes to both questions, then your in the right place. It’s so easy to become lost within the never-ending to-do list. I’m not afraid to admit that I often wonder if I’ll ever get the chance to have a lazy day. Me time and self-care often falls to the bottom of the list, by bedtime I’m exhausted.
The list below is perfect for those who feel like their lives are a never-ending series of chaos.
It’s taken a long time but I think I’ve finally cracked it with these 10 easy steps. I finally have time for me and time for the children. I’m not anxious or stressed about when the next bill is going out because if I don’t know, I just have to look at my notes.

- Assess your aims in life and how you’re working towards them.
- Remove unnecessary distractions.
- Try to go paperless.
- Make notes to avoid forgetting things.
- Get ready for the morning the night before.
- Don’t try and do it all – schedule, plan and delegate.
- Declutter your living space. Get rid of anything you don’t want or need in your home.
- Maximise the most of your storage space and label everything.
- Make a meal plan each week.

It’s impossible to organise everything at once, so make sure you pace yourself.
Trying to do it all is just as overwhelming as not being organised at all. It’s also hugely important that you keep track of the notes you make and the schedules you design. Meal planning can make a huge difference to your day and save you money, especially if you make easy nutritious meals. Finally, don’t ever be afraid to delegate and ease the load on your shoulders.
