How to declutter your life

On simplicity


Being organized is everything, period. It can help you notice what is really important at the end of the day. Upon waking up, what comes first to your mind? Are you trapped in a certain thought bubble? The easiest way to get off of it is to specifically write your thoughts down or I must say your worries.

This exercise helped me to prioritize things and stuffs according to its ranks, so by the end of the day, not only I get to finish everything on my to-do list, but I have all the time to be there for my loved-ones. It is just as simple as note-taking or jornaling..

So what are the benefits? Note-taking is like having an assistant, it is like a real-time/virtual secretary that is fixing your errands for a specific tasks to the biggest ones. Just be kind to your self. Things that needs to be jotted down will be from the most mundane task like buying your medicine to taking care of your children.

So the next time you want to be organized, write it down anf keep it simple—it will do wonders.
