Tips to organize you and your life

Schoolwork, we all struggle with it. Do you ever feel like you are just swamped and aren’t organized? Well here’s some tips to help you be organized with both schoolwork and yourself.

First, do not avoid work. Although it may be stressful you need to get it done. Grab a piece of paper and write out your schedule for after school. Think about your assignments and see where they would fit in. Some projects can be time sensitive so be sure to take that into account. Avoiding work will just cause more stress and the school work will just add up over time.

Secondly, not only does your school work need to be organized but you need to be organized. Take a moment and visualize your room, or even your work space. Is it clean, can you easily find everything. Having a good clean and organized work space is very helpful for you to do your work. Before you go to bed just try picking up 10 items or throwing away a few pieces of trash. This will help you feel accomplished and not have so many worries on your mind. After a while you should have less and less items to pick up.

Thirdly, not only do physical things need to be organized but your work spaces need to be organized. When was the last time you took a moment just for yourself? You and your health are very important to be successful. Before you go to bed, after you pick up some items take a moment and just breathe. Sleep is very important, when you sleep you are taking memories and storing them into long term. In order to be successful you need to have a good night’s sleep. In order to sleep well you need to have a clear mind. I do this by closing my eyes and thinking of  color. Make sure to take deep breaths and clear your mind. After I do this I feel much better and have found that I get a better night’s sleep. My brother has been doing this and has been doing better in school.

Mrs Lamb was asked for some good tips on staying organized. She said, “Having a system in place like a binder or accordion folder or whatever works for you. You should go back and visit it periodically, take out papers that you don’t need and make sure that you did your assignments well.¨

These are just a few tips on staying organized. Organization is very important for you and it’s important to be successful.
