Get organised (Self-care month Day 25)

I have always been a pretty organised person. Sometimes completely too rigid, nowadays I believe that running round like crazy trying to do all and be all is way overrated. But then, some organisation is great for clarity of the mind and focus on individual tasks. I think if I just lived spontaneously all of the time then I would never get anything done and I probably wouldn’t be sat here now writing this.

So what do you think is the minimum organisation that you should implement? Cont…

Monthly Review

Happy first of the month/April Fools Day!

I love the start of a new month, its like a mini new year, a bit of a fresh start if you need one.

At the beginning of every month I review my goals, as advised in the Leonie Dawson workbook. And I set goals for the next month from my workbook. I sit down with my calendar and work out a budget for my money for the month. I make any appointments I need to for that month and I make time to be ready for any birthdays and parties that I have coming up with regards to presents and cards. I check that everything in my calendar is in line with what I have in my diary and work out my study planner for the month.

Sitting down at the beginning of every month to organise myself makes my time less stressful and more productive. It normally take a couple of hours maximum and is worth every second of that time. Give it a try and see how much smoother and more rewarding this month is for you.

New Routines

Since we moved house everything has changed. Actually everything changes continually anywau really. Our priorities change, our needs, the kids needs, the weather…everything and it all affects our routines.

At the moment, my youngest, who is nearly 2, needs more entertaining and occupying than ever and also sleeps less! We have had to start fitting in more activities into our daily lives, more day trips, more parks, more playgroups and less of the other things I need to do, I.e. Studying, exercise, writing, cleaning and organsining. Vi does not go to childcare yet (because of the expense mostly) and other than the 3 hours she has with her grandma on a Friday morning in which I study, she is with me all day, everyday.

So today I need to sit down for a period of time and work out our new routines. It does take a while because it’s a bit like fitting too many pieces into a big puzzle, but it will fit eventually and it needs doing or things won’t be done. 

I will share my workings out when I have it all figured out!
