Many people struggle with being organized and fully functional. Having too many everyday responsibilities and tasks makes us more prone to developing habits that can harm our health. However, there are also people that have no trouble finishing everything on time without stressing too much about it. These people are actually excellent at organizing things the perfect way.
Successful people have a routine that helps them lead a positive lifestyle in order to benefit from their mindset which then results with success.
This is not as challenging as it may appear. To learn how you can change your way of thinking and acting, read the following list that can help you find out how to start and how to organize your day.
1.Wake up early
Having a regular sleeping pattern is essential in order to be able to achieve your maximum during the day. Start by going to bed earlier, and if you find this harder you may also try waking up earlier in order to feel sleepy earlier in the evening.
Waking up early in the morning provides you with more time to achieve everything you are supposed to during the day as well as more time for relaxing during your busy day.
Instead of reaching to your phone immediately after waking up you should get out of bed so that the sleepy feeling will go away faster. Also, scrolling on your phone is just wasting time which you could use doing something much more beneficial or productive.
Happiness is not running to the things you don’t have. You should be thankful for those you have and be happy for being blessed with the gift of life. Write a journal with all the things you are thankful for and try to do this every day no matter how bad it is. Training yourself to be thankful will help you become more optimistic.
4.Do something that makes you happy
Doing something that makes you happy will make you feel more optimistic and positive which will result in being more productive. If the things that makes you happy takes too much of your time, try to limit it for about 5-10 minutes. This way you will look forward to your happy moments and actually feel pleasure doing them.
5.Ask the right questions
When you wake up in the morning think about the things you would like to do that day if it was your last day. Instead of diving into very deep thoughts, ask yourself constructive questions that could be helpful for the solving of a certain problem.
You should prepare your daily routine every morning which will help you finish your tasks on time. Try to plan it thoroughly and once you achieve it you will feel very fulfilled and happy about yourself.
7.Strategy, strategy, strategy

Your expectations about yourself should never be unrealistic. Try to go step by step without jumping from one thing to another before you even finish the previous. Always know your limit and your capability however you can always slightly push yourself within your limits.
Find the right meditation method for you. Or you can always get out of your comfort zone and experience new things you never would have done before. Try yoga which can help you clear your mind as well as relax so that you will be prepared for the following challenges and obstacles.
Your home should never be chaotic and dirty. You can’t expect your mind to be organized if your home isn’t. Get rid of all the objects that distract your mind and clean your living space. This way your mind will be able to declutter much faster.
If you don’t have extra body weight, you can always do yoga. Engaging in any physical activity will help you clear your mind and make you feel refreshed and prepared for the upcoming challenges. Try to spend at least 40-60 minutes doing physical exercise every day.
12.Finish your unwanted tasks
Finishing the things you least enjoy doing first will help you feel relieved and have more time doing the things that are less challenging and more enjoyable. You will also feel less stressed and more focused on the things that are not as hard.
13.Cuddling is key
Never forget you should give your friends and family hugs. This will help you charge with positive emotions that will guide you through the day and also make other people feel good.
Give yourself a one hour break every day. Spend this time reading quotes or listening music that will lift your spirit and make you feel good.
