In this post I am talking about Organizing Post Christmas. I didn't do any decorating this year as I am staying with my mum until I can get a place of my own again. I am due to move but its taking a bit of time.
However it doesn't mean I have nothing to Organize because I do. There are projects that I have been working on to finish this year, and some I want to create for the new year.
So what I tend to do is fill in my two planners and go through what I want to accomplish in the day and stop me getting down because Christmas is coming to the end again. I go through everything I have done and needs doing. I also use One Note which is a brilliant computer programme that helps me stay organized and on track.
When blogging and writing a book can be so scattered that you can lose your way a bit and so I make sure I write lists and schedule in posts and work on my books, as I go, making sure I also have some time outdoors on some days and watch a bit of TV or Youtube.
Breaking my days up is a great way to still be productive but not get too bogged down with work.
I like to plan the new year before and after Christmas, and set goals without fail. I like to have things I want to do rather than all items being what I have got to do, as this list can often be one I want to avoid, so I balance it out in a way that I make sure the must do's get done aswell as the wish to do's.
The other thing I like to schedule in time to read a book and write in my journals as it is good to reflect on life and how it is going, and yesterday in ages I did a home workout.
I had been putting it off but once I got into it I really enjoyed it. I would say schedule time for self care as looking after yourself as well as other people, and make that favourite meal that will make you feel you have a had a good structured day and make time to speak to friends still by phone and have a glass of wine or two.
Organizing Post Christmas is about making the most of the days you have free if you are off from working, and if you have a film you love, put that on too, I am dying to watch one of my favourite Christmas films and I have scheduled it in.
Life doesn't have to be set in stone, but having things that serve a purpose is what I really focus on, and so I am going to get on with the otther posts I plan to write today, whilst singing to some wonderful tunes to my hearts content and when someone moans and tells you to shut take it as a sign to carry on. It's your voice, your time and your life.
Many thanks for reading,
