hey frens! today is the third post in the series glow up weekly where I share different ways to glow up and live your best life! today we’re going to be talking about getting organized 🙂
our lives can get super crazy so it’s good to sit down and plan/get organized. for me as a very type a person this is really fun but even if you don’t enjoy it I’m sure you agree it’s essential!
first, I’d recommend really taking a look at everything you have to get done. grab a journal or a piece of paper (better yet, use the free printables featured later in the post!) and write down all your commitments (like to a sports team or a job) and priorities (what’s important to you?). next, write down your goals for the future. these don’t have to be fancy, but where do you see yourself in one year (or five, or ten!)? how can you work towards that lifestyle right now? finally, write down all the boring but important things that make up your day (like school, working out, math homework, and your morning routine). once you’re done, congrats! this is the bones of your schedule!
the next thing I would recommend doing is writing out your ideal day. separate your day into sections (like morning, afternoon, and evening) and fill in what you’d ideally get done in each section. for example, maybe you have sports practice in the afternoon but you’d also ideally finish your homework before dinner. in the morning, maybe you’d like to go on a run or read a book. before you go to bed, you’d love to work on your blog and take pictures for social media, or maybe wind down with some self care. include all the things you wrote down before (your priorities, commitments, and the boring stuff). you don’t actually have to use this as a template for every day, but it helps to know what your ideal day would look like!
finally, you’ll need to look at the calendar and plan your week! while the other things are something you’ll only need to do once, planning your week is something really helpful that I would personally recommend doing every single week! this is super simple, but just write down everything you have planned/you need to get done every day!
of course there’s also a pdf download (one pdf for all three pages you can download if you’d prefer!)
this is such a broad topic so it was hard to narrow it down to something! I hope this helps you! let me know how you stay organized in the comments 🙂
