Getting Organised and Life Planner Giveaway


Skin fix


I normally blog every day but lately I have felt somewhat disorganised and short of time. I know a large part of this is due to having a very active 16month old baby who has been teething a lot lately paired up with the fact the last time he slept through the night was when he was 4 months old (and that only lasted for two weeks). Being somewhat sleep deprived has also meant that I don't always think as clearly as normal so making notes when inspiration or ideas come to me is really important as I usually forget them 5 minutes later, the only problem is I then have a pile of random pieces of paper dotted around the house which usually get accidentally thrown out - something had to change!


Potential business leads



I know besides more sleep that the key to less stress is being more organised and that is where my new Life Planner from Unique Planners comes in. I am allocating at least 10 mins a day to jot down my to do list for each day, any contacts I want to keep as well as making notes of events and lunch dates so I can clearly see what each month holds and I don't miss anything.

I already feel like I have a plan for each week and it's making my workload more manageable being able to break things down into doable chunks rather than feeling overwhelmed. This Life Planner is perfect for bloggers, busy moms or anyone trying to juggling more than one thing at a time as you have the diary with mini week planner, monthly planner, weekly checklists more than enough space for notes, lists, contacts, business expenses and much more and it can be customised to your liking.

 I also giving one of my readers the chance to win a customised Life Planner worth £24. It's super easy to enter and the giveaway ends on the 25th July 2016

  8. Blimey that's a tricky question. I find it really hard due to my mental health issues. But I guess I would say keep a diary/planner, or save things in your phone. And don't put too much pressure on yourself to be 'perfect'. Just because other people are getting out ten blog posts a week or have all their socks folded in colour order doesn't make them more on top of stuff. Try and do one extra thing a week and you'll eventually be doing more than you ever thought you could. I hope I answered right?
