Figuring out how to organize how to organize your life can help eliminate stress and make you feel overall happier. Here are some ways to get started.

Write Things Down

Whether you write down what you have going on for the whole month or just have a daily "To-Do" list, writing down what you have going on and what you need to get done can really help you stay on schedule and feel less stressed about everything you have going on.

Keep Your House/Room Clean

Having things laying around all over your house or room makes it hard to find things and is especially inconvenient when you're in a rush. Keeping the areas around you clean really isn't a hard task and if the week gets busy, choose a day every weekend to tidy things up. Its a simple thing that can be done to get your life in order.

Learn to Let Go of Things

Many people, including myself, have trouble letting go of things. It can be hard throwing away or donating things that you don't use or wear anymore. Allowing yourself to be honest about what you do or don't need in your life anymore will help you in the process of getting rid of things, while also decluttering the space around you.

Time Management 

This is a very key component of organizing your life. We spend so much time doing unproductive things, which isn't always bad, but if we learned to manage our time and get important things done first you own't wonder what you spent the entire day doing. By learning to mage your time better you'll also feel more successful at the end of each day.

Start Building Better Routines 

While you probably don't always realize it, your days likely follow a particular routine. Once you get into the habit of following a more productive routine it will be easier to stay organized. After continuously doing the same routine you won't even remember what it is that you had to change.

Set Goals

Setting goals for yourself is a great way to promote getting things done. It is also a good way to hold yourself accountable, if you don't reach your goal by a certain deadline don't be too hard on yourself, but push yourself to get it done soon after.

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists
King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
