How to Get Organised in 2019.

How to get organised in 2019

Is anyone else feeling seriously motivated now we're into the new year? Because 2019, I am so ready for ya.

In light of this, I wanted to share a post discussing getting your sh*t together ready for the next 12 months ahead, as I am really feelin' it.

The past week I've made a list of goals that I hope to achieve, planned in what I want from my blog going forward and ticked off those little, boring jobs that I've been putting off for way too long (I'm talkin' the likes of dull yet v satisfying wardrobe clear-outs etc etc). As a result, I'm now feeling uber organised and ready to go.

So, what better time to share my go-to's for getting me feeling organised?

Reflection & goal making

Whenever we enter a new year, I always enjoy a bit of reflection on the things I've achieved, as well as a thought to elements I'm keen to improve/change/get rid of. Whether it's writing it down or simply making a mental note, I find it makes such a difference to my motivation. It can also be massively therapeutic, something I found when sharing my post on getting diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

List, list, list

Speaking of writing it down, I bloody love me a good to-do list. Every week I have one sat looking at me on my desk (usually scribbled together towards the end of the previous week - a good way to clear your head of work tasks pre-weekend shenanigans in my experience) and tbh, I think I'd be lost without it. Oh, and you just can't beat the satisfaction of checking off each task once complete, am I right or am I right? Or y'know, crossing out, whatever floats your boat. Sometimes I even like to do both, because I am clearly just oh-so w.i.l.d.

Make a playlist

If there's anyone that knows how to do this, and do it well, it's Chloe Plumstead. Bougie Queen Chill is one mega creation and one you should listen to at once. If not, get your musical thinking cap on and make your own. Something that'll get you bopping and in the zone when you're doing your thing, but not distracted from the task at hand. 

Stationary

As if I don't have enough of the stuff already. Is it really a new year if you haven't got a brand spanking new notebook/diary/set of pens/ruler/highlighter/calculator/protractor (I jest)? Frankly, no it is not. Starting a fresh new notebook is one of the little things in life that bring me mass amounts of joy.

Meditation & yoga

I harp on about Headspace and yoga so much, I should really be on commission. But it really does work. Calming and focusing your mind, collectively they're just known to be really good for you, so it's kind of a no-brainer for me.

Are you a fan of doing any of the above? What things do you like to do to get you prepped for the year ahead?

Bloggers to Add to Your Reading List.

Bloggers to follow

If you're anything like me, then finding a new blog to read whilst cosying up on the sofa is your idea of one mega dreamy evening.

One of my blogging aims for 2019 is to share the love a little more in the community, as, not only is it a nice way to discover new reads, but we all know how lovely if feels when someone compliments something you put a lot of time and effort into!

So without further ado, here's a wee round-up of some of my current favourites...

Gemma Louise

I mean, have you seen Gemma's photography? Literally stunning. Her creativity with each post, from her lifestyle tips to the most beautiful flatlays you've ever laid your eyes on are what keep me going back for more.

Megan Ellaby

I'm pretty sure you'll already be familiar with Megan's blog (and amazing YouTube channel, for that matter!), as she is one hell of a girl boss. She is the ultimate cool girl, and her posts are so bloody inspiring that you just want to be her friend. I've been long-time reader now, but I just had to give Megan a mention. Oh, and if you're in the market for a bangin' new jumper, she's got you sorted with her epic brand, Saturday.

Nettle & Blackberry

Even more content goodness, this time from Nettle & Blackberry's, Imii. Her posts on everything from her travels, to her favourite things are so interesting to read. Oh, and her photos are just a dream.

Sophie Rosie

Sophie's blog is just gorgeous. Her consistent eye for photography is top-notch and she is the absolute queen when it comes to motivational lifestyle posts. Sophie is a fairly new discovery for me but a blogger I look forward to reading more from.

Beth Sandland

Beth's blog is a real goodie. She may be off travelling the world (how exciting?!), but her updates continue to appear on the regular (think insightful posts on destinations you just need to visit, as well as some very honest *and helpful* posts about life). Also, can we take a moment talk about her blog layout? LUSH.

Are you a reader of any of the bloggers above? I'd love to know your favourites!
