If you’ve ever looked around your house thought: my life is a complete and utter mess – you’re not alone. Especially if you have children. Even more so if those children are tiny, creature-like humans called toddlers.

Keeping your life organized is a non-stop game of cat and mouse. Between work, home, health, fitness, bills, school, and simply finding some time for yourself – it’s easy to get overwhelmed.

But did you know that there are some legit health benefits to getting organized? It’s true! The lucky few who somehow manage to keep their lives together tend to sleep better, are more productive and feel less stressed.

So here’s to living more, juggling less, and feeling clutter-free.

1. Make a list.
spacer10
Each day, your brain takes in and processes a ton of information. There’s just no conceivable way you’ll remember everything you need to do.
spacer10
Quick solution: make a list, write things down, check them off. It’s so incredibly simple yet unbelievably effective at keeping your tasks and events in perspective.

2. Give everything a home and minimalize.
spacer10
The best organizers ensure that every item has a proper place. Start small by picking a space in your home that could use some good organization, perhaps your pantry or bathroom?
spacer10
Moreso, take inventory of the things you own. Try to eliminate items from your life that are unnecessary. For example, single-use appliances or random souvenirs you picked up on vacation.

3. Do a digital cleanse.

If you’re anything like us, you’re subscribed to every streaming subscription service under the sun. But question: are you really using all of them?
spacer10
We suggest doing a bit of a digital scrub. Those streaming services add up, and by dropping a few, you could clear up some space on that monthly budget.

4. Make routine cleaning schedules.
spacer10
It can be super overwhelming to try and clean everything in your house, all at once. That’s why you should consider setting daily, weekly, even monthly cleaning schedules. By spreading out your tasks, they’re a lot more achievable.

5. Take control of your health.
spacer10
With so much going on, your health tends to fall to the bottom of your to-do list. But when you feel good, both mentally and physically, you’re more productive with more energy to crush your day-to-day.
spacer10
So we suggest carving out time to work out, go for a walk, or even do something as simple as meditating. Plus, don’t put off those annual doctor’s appointments. Staying on top of those routine visits can help you become your healthiest, best self.
