Organization Tips

Try These 10 Tips To Become A Successful, Put-Together Person With Just 10 Minutes A Day

Because everyone needs a little organization help.


Life is messy. A messy mess full of errands, school, work, clubs, meetings, parties, and everything in between. Here are a few tried-and-true habits to becoming a successfully put-together(ish) person.

 Keep a planner... AND keep it up to date.

Keeping a planner is such a basic bit of advice, but making sure you keep it up to date is where people tend to fall off track. Write down every single responsibly you have that day, not just the big stuff. Write down to walk the dog at 3, or go to the store, or apply for that club. If you only write down when stuff is due, chances are you will forget to do them up to that point.

Make lists 

Wake up and make a list. Write down what you have to get done that day. Write down your grocery list, your homework for the week, your meals for the week, etc. Keeping lists will help you to stay on track and not worry about things last minute.

Clean your room

If you do a little bit of cleaning everyday, we're talking like putting away some folded clothes, wiping down the bathroom sink, making your bed, etc., just doing one of those things at any point during the day will make you feel more organized and on top of the day. Just trust me on this one.

Study for the test thats a week, two weeks, or a month away

It is psychologically proven that spaced out studying is linked with higher grades as opposed to mass studying (AKA: studying the night before). If you study for just 10 minutes a day, it will be more efficient than studying all night the night before the test.

Take a power nap

Even a little 10-30 minute power nap will make you feel much better and rested, which will help you effectively complete your tasks for the day.

Do a face mask

Just taking 10 minutes to put on a face mask and be still will make you feel calmer and more put together. Also, it will clear up your skin and help with the wrinkles down the road.

Light a candle 

Lighting a candle is a simple task that can change your whole mood and make you feel more productive.

Take a shower

A shower or bath can help you feel focused and clean. A shower is a nice study break or cleaning break, it gives you an opportunity to just do nothing for a minute.

Go for a walk

Walking or any form of exercise is proven to help boost your mood and focus. Even if it's for just 10 minutes a day, it's better than nothing.

 Reorganize your closet, bathroom counter, desk or anything for that matter

Reorganizing anything gives you a sense of satisfaction and makes you feel more accomplished throughout your day.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.
