Back to school: Stay organized

One thing that affects our time and grades would be organization. Let's get it straight. We all have been through this situation from looking through cluttered backpacks to messy desks. Then, we end up losing our precious papers. But don't worry, there are some easy tips to be prepared. 

1) Use a schedule/calendar

I heard this is a holy grail to all your problems. I remember neglecting this step, but seriously it's the most important rule you should never put off. I find it easier to plan out my day and stick with it. By the end of the day, my life became so much easier and I saved so much time. 

You can buy a calendar at any store for as little as $3 or find any way to schedule out the day. I used my notes app on my phone and just record any necessarily work to be done the next day. You should record any important events, work, or activities. This reminds you what needs to be done before goofing off. What's better is that once you check off each item, you'll feel at ease knowing how much crap you completed contributing to less stress.

2) Labeling 

All journals, books, and folders are either plain or colorful. The good thing is that having colorful essentials makes it easier to pinpoint which is which. Try specifying different colors for different courses like Algebra is red, Chemistry is green, and History is purple. If you have a problem finding the right color for a specific school supply on a course then you can always color a piece of paper and tape it to your school supply. Different ways to label your stuff. And it doesn't have to be colors, you can use shapes or just write down the course. Be creative and have fun with it.

3) Keep everything in place 

First, spot out your workplace (Desk, Dinner table, bedroom, living room, etc.) Organize the area by keeping it tidy and clean. Discard any unnecessary papers and place your work essentials in a nice spot. Try dividing them up by writing tools, books, and electronics. A clean area makes it simple for you to not get distracted nor affect your time. 

4) Seek for help 

Lots of times we can easily forget the most important assignment once school is over. But it doesn't mean there's no way to know what was due, so make sure you keep in contact with your classmates or friends. Use your phone to keep in touch like texting, social media, or calling. People are your number #1 source for information so ask than to worry.

5) Stop procrastination 

Last tip to avoiding any cost of cluttered life is to stop procrastinating. Simply, it's the job that you have to overcome in order to stop any buildup of stress and disorganization. We all don't have the motive to finish work because we can be so lazy or it's just too boring. But remember that checking off each thing on your to-do list can make you feel so satisfied. Just think about all the free time you could be having if you manage your stress, time, and organization. 

Hopefully, these tips will help you on your journey to a new school year. If you're not in school, then I hope some of these tips apply to your life. 

   See ya next time! Ciao ^__^
