How To Be Organised

This post is something a little bit different to what I would normally post. My 'How To' posts will include my personal tips and tricks. Since September has arrived and that 'back to school' feeling is in the air, I thought it would be the perfect time to talk about keeping organised.

1. Get up the first time your alarm goes off.

It's hard I know, it's the weekend and you want to hit that snooze button. Don't! Be ahead of the game and accomplish everything first thing in the morning, meaning you can enjoy the rest of your day having been productive already. If you struggle getting up in the morning, place your phone across the room, which means you have to get up to turn it off, meaning you're more likely to get up the first time round.

2. Plan your outfit the night before.

I consider myself a morning person, as I am able to get up and go. But I do like to make mornings  easier for myself. I do this by planning my outfit the night before. Nothing wastes more time *or precious extra minutes in bed* than standing in front of your wardrobe insisting you have nothing to wear. Planning your outfit the night before takes no time what so ever and you have your uniform ready to start your day. This stops you throwing on multiple pieces in a hurry and discovering they don't go making you late (we've all been there)!

3. Meal prep.

I am a massive foodie! My mind is constantly thinking about what I'm going to be having for my next meal. I like to prep meals, such as breakfast and packed lunches, for work. It saves time in the morning and helps me to eat healthier. Prepping your breakfast the night before ensures you are going to have a fulsome meal to kick start the day. You can enjoy a healthy recipe you have prepared rather than grabbing unhealthy snacks on the go, or facing unhealthy options in the school/work canteen. Some of my personal favourites to make are Simple Overnight Bircher by Madeline Shaw and Travellelling Noodles (these will make all your co-workers jealous) by one of my favourite bloggers The Londoner.

4. Use your calendar.

We all have calendars, but do you actually follow and use your calendar other than to jot down birthday dates? (Thank goodness for Facebook reminders.) I like to write everything down on my calendar, from work meetings to coffee dates or even reminders to check the oil in my car. Without physically writing something down, I'm bound to forget! I have a traditional calendar for annual reminders, as I like to turn to a new month and see what lies ahead. While I use the electronic one on my phone religiously for day to day life, such as appointments and errands. Wether you prefer to write it down physically or  prefer to do it electronically, check it daily to make sure you don't miss a beat!

What are you tips for keeping organised?

Thank you for reading,
Much love, THLL x
