Hey Earthlings……Hope ya’ll are doing great….
So I turned 27, last weekend and come Monday I was diagnosed with vertigo (which means my inner ear isn’t receiving enough blood), then this past Friday I got food poisoning , So last week was not my best week… and Yes I am on medication, decided to go back to yoga and start incorporating the gym.
On the bright side I got to hangout with my best girlfriends, who are practically family this weekend that just past and they almost made me cry with surprising me with a cake, for my belated birthday.
My skincare routine was meant to come out last week, as I was under the weather, I couldn’t shoot the photos and came up with the following post. I hope to release the skin care routine before the week ends.
So since, I decided I want to earn an income with my blog and social media, ( am inserting a shameless plug here follow my Instagram and Facebook and finally join the mailing list),I am treating this has a business, thought I would share a few organisational tips that seem to be working for me.
But before that, I want to vent/rant a little….. A couple of weeks ago, I was discussing with a former high school mate of how easy life was when we were growing up, we didn’t have any worries but all we wanted to do is grow up and to be adults.
So Adulting Ladies and Gentlemen is hard and it is a LIE, begin the fact now that am 27, with no current income, or job but I am searching so I can at least earn some experience in being in the workforce and am also single, plus the icing on the cake is am still living with my parents, but I am thankful for that, because I don’t have bills that most 27 year olds have.
So I came to the conclusion that Adulting is a MYTH. Us millennial’s are suffering through depression ( me included although I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel), some of us aren’t ready for responsibilities that come with being adults, which many of us know are, paying bills, save money, sometimes sacrificing some of the luxuries and many more.
In my personal opinion the High School subjects begin taught aren’t relevant and they don’t help us in the long run, question who uses Pythagoras theorem in their daily life, or any Geography topic. How about you teach students how to balance a check book, or saving their money, or how to survive University. I think the Topic is called ‘LIFE SKILLS’.
But I digress, us millennial’s need to find new ways, to make money and I am including me in the us, because the traditional routes are not working for us, like they did our parents and also we need to stop thinking people and work will come to us, we have to go out into the world and find them and not be discouraged when we get rejected.…. Another shameless plug, I am planning on starting a online shop and a T-shirt so be on the lookout for them.
How To Get Organised.
Get a planner: Man I was not a fan of them, but when I started taking this blog thing seriously, I had to get myself one. So it can either be a hardcover or digital. I personal had to create my own, (wait for it another plug am thinking of selling some digital ones eventually, once I get the design to how I like it and what it looks like), since the ones that I could afford I didn’t like, and the ones I liked, I could not afford.
Keep a journal or a notebook handy: Has much as notes app is handy,I use it all the time, using your phone in meeting with clients, doesn’t look that professional, than having a notebook. An iPad can work too.
Get a creative outlet: It helps to distress you, I am a creative, writing down ideas on paper before they disappear. Plus it will inspire you to new ideas.
Get a Routine or Schedule : I know for a fact routines help you keep on track, especially when it comes to someone’s mental health, because, you know where and what your supposed to do. I am getting back to my routine and currently planning a new one.
Pick up good habits: I am currently trying to collect good, success building habits. It takes 21 days to pick up a habit and 21 days to break a habit, I will try and document, those habits I finally pick up.
Join a Gym, Do Yoga: Working out helps with discipline, plus it becomes part of your routine, and you might start looking, forward to it. Yoga always made me Zen, and semi controlled my anger issues.
Make Lists & Goals to Accomplish: Have lists of things you have to do, every day and goals to accomplish every month, these will keep you motivated through the day, week, month, or year, you will get a sense of pride, when you complete and met your goal.
Try waking up Early: Get in the habit of getting up early, apparently days are longer, and you get more things done if you wake up at 5 am or 6am then when you wake up at 9am or 10am
Finally take a break because if you don’t you will burn out quick.

I totally agree with your list to stay organized! For one- I could not live without my planner. That is my main way of staying organized.
