There’s no time like the present to get organized! And at any given moment, there is always something you can do help declutter and arrange your home. The small things make a big difference and can help you feel less stressed and anxious about a looming to-do list. In the effort to start the season off strong, here are 5 ways to get organized right now.
1. Clean out the Clutter
Clutter is the easiest way to become disorganized, and the fastest way to get order back on track. Don’t be afraid to get rid of things you don’t need, want or use anymore. Make a throw away and donation pile and go through things like clothing, books and toys at least once a season.
2. Plan it Out
You don’t have to be a planner to be prepared to tackle your day. Just start the night before to help yourself start the day off right. Set out anything you need for the next day, like files, assignments or a bag. Think about what you’ll wear. Create a short, prioritized to-do list so that you don’t forget anything. Even program your coffee machine to kick on at the right time.
3. Say No
Taking on too many tasks will undoubtedly lead to a mess. Knowing your limits and sticking to them will be a great benefit for you in the long run. You’ll be more dedicated to the tasks you have time for, and everything and everyone will get your full attention.
4. Don’t Forget About Yourself
When things get messy and busy, we often stop doing the little things for ourselves. But those little things can make big headway towards productivity and happiness. Don’t forget to give yourself a little “me time.” That could be a cup of coffee in the morning, a yoga class or an evening walk.
5. Keep the High Traffic Areas Clean
You may not always have time to vacuum, mop, dust and disinfect, but if you concentrate on just the high traffic, heavy use areas, you can likely get the important things done. You’ll keep your home safe and you’ll feel like you accomplished something. Of course HouseMaids can help if you need a reliable Sarasota cleaning service! Just call us at (941) 953-4300!
