Need to be More Organised This Year? Here is How

The new year is around the corner and often that means making and setting goals. One of those might be to be more organised. There may some specific things that you’d like to be organised in. You might love your workplace or office to be more organised. You may need to get your life and social plans organised. I’ll be sharing a few tips that will help you to be more organised in your everyday and work life. It doesn’t have to take up a lot of your time, but it will save a lot of your time.

 

Write Things Down

 

This one is a no-brainer! You know those people that are always organised and remember to send birthday cards or gifts? Majority of the time that is not down to memory. They will have it written down and it helps them to remember. Whether it is in an address or contacts book, or a calendar or diary, write it down.

 

Making lists or things that you need to do are also great things to write down. Buy a diary and save yourself a lot of time and effort. It can be confusing trying to remember where everyone lives or when their birthdays are.

Declutter

 

I like to be fairly organised and one thing that I can do that is by not having much clutter around. A cluttered workspace, for example, is a disorganised workplace. Set aside some time, perhaps once a week, or a specific time of day, to declutter. It might just be a mess that has accumulated and needs to be thrown away. It might be things have moved from elsewhere and it needs to be moved back. Taking this time will help you be more organised and know where everything is.

 

Set Deadlines

 

When you are writing things down and making notes for yourself, make deadlines. Being organised means prioritising time and meeting deadlines. If you are always rushing around trying to get things done in time, it is a sign that you need to be more organised and plan a little better. There will always be things that you can tick off the list after a short time; some will take longer. It is important to mark them off though and focus on what needs to be done, and when.

 

Set a Budget

 

If you don’t already have a budget that you set for yourself, this is a must. This can save a lot of time and hassle. If you know what you have to spend on everyday things like food, you will be so much better off. It is also of great importance when budgeting for bigger things like Christmas or birthdays. You don’t want to be getting into debt for things like that. If you are disorganised and don’t know what you have to spend, though, it could happen quicker than you think.

 

Good luck with getting organised this year. It can take a little bit of effort but it is certainly worth the effort. Stick with it and you’ll be feeling organised in no time.

How The Stars Affect Your Love Life

It’s no secret that we all want to meet the one, but sometimes meeting Mr. Right seems almost impossible. If you want to find a partner who you will have that mind boggling, stomach fizzing connection with, you need to take astrology into account. (It might sound a little strange, but trust me, it’s worth it.)

According to many relationship experts, if you want to find your soulmate, taking your star sign into account is a must. Of course, a person’s star sign alone isn’t enough to guarantee that they will be perfect for you. But it will have a big impact on how right for each other you are.

If you take note of your star sign and compatibility when picking a partner, the chances are that your relationship will be a happier one. And that’s a fact. For everything that you need to know about how your star sign affects your love life, keep reading.

 

Know your zodiac and star sign

First things first, before you can set about finding love via the stars, you need to work out what your zodiac and star signs are. It’s not just a case of using your star sign to work out who you are most compatible with; you also need to take your Chinese zodiac sign into account.

Let’s start with star signs. There are 12 star signs, and each star sign relates to a time of year. They don’t match up with the 12 months of a year, instead most star signs overlap over two months. For example, Libras are born between September 23rd and October 22nd. Each star sign comes with different traits and characteristics, that are common for people who fall under it.

And now onto zodiac signs. Your zodiac sign relates to the year you were born, and again, comes with various traits. There are 12 zodiac signs that link to years in a 12-year cycle. So, if, for example, 1992 was the year of the monkey, 2004 would also be the year of the monkey. You can find out your zodiac sign by putting your year of birth into an online zodiac calculator.

Your star and zodiac sign affect who you like and dislike

What it’s important to realize is that your star and zodiac signs don’t just tell you when you were born, they also link to your love life. You see, the people who you will enjoy spending time will be the people whose star and zodiac sign match well with yours.

For example, if you were born in September 1992, you would be a Libra and have the zodiac sign of the Monkey. Libras are all about their partner, and will do anything for them. They are kind, considerate and all loving, but tend to put their needs behind everyone else’s. Because of this, they need a partner who also puts other people’s needs before their own, such as a Capricorn, who has the zodiac sign of the Ox or Snake.

It might be a strange way to deal with your love life, but if you want to meet the one, the stars could be the answer. Using your star and zodiac sign to find the perfect partner is all about looking for someone who can give you what you need, in terms of love.

There’s nothing that puts the smile back on the face of a beauty addict more quickly than new products. If you have some spare money and are in need of a pick-me-up, head to your fave cosmetics store for a browse.

 

Perhaps there’s a beauty product you’ve wanted for a while, like a new eyeshadow palette? Or maybe, you’ve wanted to try out a new brand? Have a look around and treat yourself to an item or two – whatever takes your fancy, treat yourself too.

 

Get the girls together for coffee

If you haven’t seen your friends in a while, this could be what’s getting you down. Studies have shown that to be happy; we need regular interaction with our friends. So if you’re feeling blue, get on the phone to the girls and organize a meet up pronto.

 

Two of the best things for beating the blues; chatting with friends and sipping your favorite latte. I don’t know about you, but whenever I’m feeling down, a coffee and a natter with the girls is the perfect remedy. Whether you’re a Starbucks gal or prefer to visit independent coffee houses, a latte is an easy way to put a smile back on your face.

 

Spoil yourself with a shopping spree

 

Sometimes, all it takes to boost your mood is a shopping spree at your favorite store. If you’re lacking a smile and love fashion, head to your nearest mall to do some shopping. Hit all your favorite stores, try on whatever you want, and treat yourself to the odd thing or two.

 

If you don’t fancy hitting the shops, how about doing some online shopping? If you are in need of a new purse, make sure to check out all the Western Purses designs. When you’re feeling down, sometimes a little bit of retail therapy can be all it takes to put a smile back on your face.  

 

Pamper yourself with a spa treatment

 

If your winter blues are caused by stress, a great way to make yourself feel better is with some pampering. Book yourself into your favorite spa for a relaxing treatment – for stress, head and shoulder massages are fantastic.

 

You’ll find that after a few hours of relaxing, you’ll feel a hundred times happier. (You might even have a smile back on your face.) For a more enjoyable spa day, consider inviting a couple of friends along to keep you company.

So there you have it, all the best ways to boost your mood and put a smile back on your face.
