Amelia’s Weekly Study Tip 3: Daily Planning (Part 2 + Bonus Tip)

DSC_0142Hey guys, today I’m going to share with you two important tips for staying organised and feeling on top of things. I know that when I’m not organised or feeling in control, I lose motivation, but these things really help prevent that snowball effect.

  1. First of all, I want to talk about to-do lists. They come in all sorts of forms to suit your preferences. A Typo store just opened up where I live (heaven for you stationery lovers out there) and I have to say it is worth a visit. From my lovely Instagram photo below you will see A5 sized lists which I use on a daily basis, and A4 ones which I use as a general list to put all those extra things I can think of (e.g. pick up the dry cleaning, submit that form you’ve been meaning to, emails you need to send, etc.). You can also get large weekly planners in notepad form or as whiteboards. It’s amazing the kind of things you can get these days to help with daily planning. I’m obsessed with pretty stationery. I find that an aesthetically pleasing to-do list with tick boxes on it makes me so much more enthusiastic about life (don’t judge me). I also like to write out my to-do list the night before. It makes me feel so much more organised for the day.

  1. My bonus tip, and it might seem like a really strange tip, is to tidy your bedroom. I find it goes hand in hand with my to-do lists. The result is me feeling so much lighter and in control of my life. I often find that the state of my bedroom reflects the state of my mind. When it’s messy, I’m usually really busy, stressed, tired, and unorganised. But if I take the time out to tidy my room, it makes a huge difference to my mood, which in turn helps me tackle the day’s challenges.

Do you like to-do lists? What other things do you do to help feel organised?
