10 Ways to simplify your life

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with school, work, and life, however, by simplifying and staying organized you can change that.

01 | Clean as you go
If you do things like cleaning your dishes right after you’ve used them or making your bed right after you get up, you won’t have to spend a lot of time constantly cleaning.

02 | Unsubscribe
I have a habit of subscribing to blogs and websites at first glance, but in reality barely read any of them. I have recently unsubscribed from a whole bunch and now my inbox is much neater and nicer to browse through.

03 | De-clutter
Get rid of things you don’t love, use, or have excess of. I love doing this with clothes, makeup, and books.

04 | Write down your daily goals
By writing down goals like finishing that book, or going to the gym, or organizing your bathroom, you know what you want to accomplish that day and will be in the right mindset and won’t have any space for distractions.

05 | Establish routines
The key to keeping your life simple is to create simple routines at the start and end of your day. A stressful morning can led to a stressful rest of the day so by creating a morning routine, for example, you give more time to do things like put together your to-do list, prepare lunch, and get ready for the day.

06 | Clean up your computer
Decluttering is also important when it comes to your digital life. Delete any tabs you don’t use and documents you don’t need.

07 | Plan your day ahead
Know what to expect, plan ahead, and you will find time to do everything. Write to-do lists and set small goals.

08 | Spend time alone
Alone time is good, extremely calming, and necessary for finding out what’s important to you.

09 | Be flexible
Leave a little space between things you need to do so you have room for mishaps, and you’ll go through your day much more relaxed.

10 | Single-task
Multi-tasking is more complicated, stressful, and generally less productive.
