Seven Ways To Be More Organised

5 Ways to be More Organised

Staying organised is key to maintaining not only your schedule but also your well-being. If you often find yourself running late, misplacing items, or feeling overwhelmed, these tips are for you. Embrace a more organised lifestyle to reduce stress and create space for what truly matters – including your Pilates practice.

1. Start Your Day Mindfully

How you begin your morning sets the tone for the entire day. Instead of rushing into your daily routine, take a moment to engage in activities that nourish your mind and body:

  • Hydrate with a glass of lemon water to refresh your system.
  • Include a morning Pilates routine, meditation, or stretching to awaken your body.
  • Practise deep breathing for mental clarity.
  • Opt for journaling over immediately checking your phone.
  • Exercise with a friend for motivation and social connection.
  • Reflect on three things you’re grateful for to cultivate positivity.

2. Master Time Blocking

Structure your day with the art of time blocking. Assign specific time slots to tasks, whether it’s work, a Pilates class, or relaxation. Utilise scheduling apps to help you prioritise and adhere to your plan. This method not only improves productivity but also ensures you’re allocating time for self-care and exercise.

3. Embrace a Daily To-Do List

A to-do list is a powerful tool for time management and stress reduction. It complements time blocking by providing a clear outline of your daily tasks. Enjoy the satisfaction of ticking off completed tasks, and remember, delegation is also a form of accomplishment.

4. Plan Your Meals

Meal planning is a stress-buster, especially after a busy day. Plan your meals weekly, considering healthy and nourishing options that align with your fitness goals. Before shopping, check what you already have to avoid waste and overbuying. This habit not only saves time but also supports a balanced diet, essential for Pilates enthusiasts.

5. Nightly Tidy-Up Ritual

End your day by tidying up your space for 10 minutes. Involve your family – it can be a fun and collaborative effort. Waking up to a clean environment sets a positive tone for the next day and saves you from morning scrambles (like searching for keys!).

6. Declutter Regularly

Whether it’s your home, workspace, or even your digital spaces like email and social media, decluttering helps reduce stress and improve focus. Set aside time each week to sort through and organise your belongings, removing items that no longer serve a purpose or bring joy. This practice extends to your Pilates gear and space too. Keeping your workout area neat and your equipment organised can enhance your focus and motivation during each session. Remember, a clutter-free space is like a blank canvas – it invites creativity, calmness, and efficiency into your daily routine.

7. Prioritise Tasks

Start by distinguishing between tasks that are urgent and those that are important – not everything that demands your attention is truly critical. Use tools to categorise tasks and decide what needs immediate action, what can be scheduled for later, what can be delegated, and what should be eliminated. This approach helps in dedicating time to your most significant activities, ensuring that you’re not just busy, but productive. By focusing on what truly matters, you create more room for personal growth and wellness.

Integrating these organisation tips into your daily routine can significantly enhance your sense of wellbeing and calmness. Remember, a well-organised life extends beyond your physical space; it includes managing your time and commitments, allowing you to prioritise your Pilates practice and overall wellness. Embrace these habits and watch how they transform not just your day, but your life.
