Are you currently busy, stressed, and overwhelmed but not sure how to fix it? Do you find yourself not being as productive as you could because of all thats going on around you? Trust me, I completely understand. Juggling the different aspects of life can be overwhelming to say the least. Sometimes I would find myself sitting in the middle of all of my mess; irritated and frustrated because my productivity was at an all time low. Whether you’re a business owner or a new parent, utilizing your time effectively is important both mentally and physically. Here are 3 ways I organize and declutter for better productivity:
1. I Write Everything Down
To write or not to write, that is the question! When balancing so many different things on a daily basis it can become a bit difficult to remember everything that you have to do. Instead of relying on your memory, take out a few moments during your day to write everything down. Whether its jotting your to do list in your notebook or using a note taking app, putting all that you’ll have to tackle in writing will help keep your brain organized. Be sure to also organize your to do lists starting off with what is the most important to complete.
Challenge: Before heading to the grocery store, write down every item you need to purchase. Once you arrive, stick to only purchasing items on your list and nothing else (not even those chocolate chip cookies that are BOGO 50% off!). You’ll find that you aren’t spending nearly as much time in the store and can accomplish other things on your list!
