I recently read a post by Jenny all about 33 small ways to help you feel like you have your life together and it got me thinking about what I would add to my own list- and how we can all try to do those little things that help us feel on track.
Sometimes you just don’t feel on track in your life. This might be because you’re not where you want to be in your career, you’re still working on your self-esteem and image, or you’re not feeling productive.
Whatever the reason, there are a few simple but effective tricks you can use to help you feel on track with your day. If you take care of the little things, the bigger things will fall into place.
In this post, I’ve put together 15 easy tricks to help you feel organised and on track with your life.
1. Get up on your first alarm
Okay, so this one isn’t exactly easy- but getting up on your first alarm (and not snoozing it one million times) is a great way to feel focused and on track with your day. Even if it’s just waking up and chilling in bed for a bit, this trick will help you feel on track.
2. Eat healthy snacks
Throughout your day, choose to eat healthy snacks. This will help you feel more together, and it will be better for you in the long run.
3. Buy your shopping
I don’t know about you, but I always feel more on track when I can make the meals I want without having to pop to the shops for ingredients.
I like having enough food at my fingertips to make nice meals, and I always end up picking up unhealthy food if I shop day-by-day!
4. Wake up at the same time everyday
Try to wake up at roughly the same time everyday. It’s a great way to improve sleep and will give you more energy- and help you feel a little more on track with your life.
5. Put on smart clothes
An easy trick to help you feel on track is to simply get dressed. Put on some smart clothes, even if you’re working from home, or wear one of your favourite outfits when you go out with friends.
It will help you feel more organised, focused, and on track with your day.
6. Put on the washing machine
I hate having a big pile of dirty clothes! Finishing the laundry is such a satisfying job, and it will help you feel on track if you have a drawer full of underwear instead of hunting for a new pair every morning, or having to re-wear clothes.
7. Complete your skincare routine
I have to complete my morning and evening skincare routine everyday otherwise I know I will break out, and I can’t relax without following my strict regime.
Whatever skin type you have, putting on your make-up in the morning or dabbing on some moisturiser at night is a great way to feel on track with your routine, and have a bit of control over your day.
8. Make your bed in the morning
This is a very easy trick to help you feel on track! Make your bed as soon as you get out of it so that you don’t forget. It’s also so nice to come back to a tidy house when you get back from work.
9. Charge your phone to 100%
I am the worst for letting my phone lose charge, but an easy trick to feel on track is to leave your phone on charge until it reaches 100%. It means you can listen to music while you walk, and it will help you feel a little safer when you’re out and about.
10. Change your bedding
Changing your bedding is an easy trick to help you feel more organised, and it will help your bed stay clean and fresh.
If you share your bed with someone else, it’s also hygienic to change your bedding when you can, and nothing beats slipping into freshly changed bedding.
11. Keep a full water bottle with you
If you don’t drink enough water, it can have an impact on your energy levels and general health- and this problem is easily solved.
To help you feel on track with your day, carry a full water bottle around with you and re-fill it when it gets empty.
12. Always have a cereal bar in your bag
Trust me on this. I have been in too many situations where I’ve ended up eating lunch later than expected, or I’ve forgotten to eat breakfast- and having a cereal bar in your bag is a great solution!
It means you have something to stop you from feeling too hungry for a short amount of time, and you never know when you might get stuck in a traffic jam, be running late to work, or feel a dip in energy.
13. Take out your bins
A great way to feel on track is to tidy your living area- but when you’re not feeling like you want to do a full clean, it’s the little things that can help.
Take out your bins and get rid of any smelly rubbish. I guarantee it makes a bigger difference than you think.
14. Choose your outfit the day before
An easy trick to help you feel on track is to choose what you’re going to wear the day before.
This means you’re not wasting any time in the morning when you’re getting ready, and you have more time to focus on the more important parts of your day.
15. Write a to do list
Writing a to do list is a great way to organise your time and it can help you feel like you have a focus. It’s always helpful to have a loose plan, to help you feel on track with your day.
