Organizing our Lives

We all are juggling life's important areas: work, office, home, health and fitness, our finances and relationships.

It is not easy to juggle so many things all at once, and some areas may get neglected.

Developing Habits

We all have habits ingrained in our lives. Most of our good habits (if any) take us to eventual long-term success, and our bad habits take our time, health, happiness and money. Make a list of what all you do as a habit daily and see which ones are good and which ones are not.

Habits like spending hours on social media, binge shopping, and lying on the couch are a few examples of bad habits.

Planning Ahead

Life is unpredictable, but planning is still important. Use your phone's calendar and to-do list, or install an app to create daily and weekly plans:

  • Plan even for small errands.
  • Keep in mind that things take longer than you expect.
  • Block chunks of time, or an entire day for a task.
Brand name products

You don’t have to spend money on the big brand names.

Your local grocery or drug store might have a store brand or sell a generic version. In most cases, the ingredients are pretty much identical.

Basic car maintenance

You do not need a professional mechanic to sort out many of the simpler car problems.

There are all sorts of easy and helpful instruction videos available to repair or maintain your car for cheap.

Shopping when you’re hungry

We are more susceptible to buying stuff we don’t need when we are hungry. The same goes for a leisurely grocery trip. 

Make your shopping trip when you have other errands to do and a limited time to do them. You will be less likely to spend time exploring and picking up items that you did not originally plan to purchase.

  • Place two document trays on your desk, one for new documents, the other for opened documents that you need to deal with.

  • Create two separate zones, one for computer work, one for non-computer work.

  • Get a bigger trashcan. Make sure to recycle.
