Mental Health Tips—Organization

“First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality.” -Napoleon Hill 

As you move into the second week of the semester, things can feel overwhelming and stressful.  Finding the balance between classes, friends, and obligations can be a lot to manage for anyone.   The core benefits of being organized in your life is increased productivity and improved performance.  And with those comes a greater sense of control, which is a vital part of stress management, resilience, and overall wellbeing – especially mental wellbeing. Here on some tips on staying organized:  

  1. Make a list—this helps you remember the things that you want to get done. Lists help keep you on track, plus there’s that little bonus feel-good moment when you can cross something off your list.  

  1. Start small—don’t force yourself into getting everything done all at once. Choose smaller tasks to start with. This helps increase motivation to tackle the more daunting tasks.  

  1. Reduce clutter—throw away old sticky notes, put your pens back in their holder, wipe off your desk. Sometimes organization can be as simple as reestablishing a clean work environment.  

  1. Make time—whether it’s setting aside 10 minutes a day to organize, or one afternoon a week, choose what works for you, but be sure to follow through with this small goal. Side note: if you have a roommate, this is an important conversation to have to reduce conflict on cleanliness and organization.  

  1. Find what works for you—everyone has a different style and level of comfort that works for them. Think about what makes you feel the most comfortable and accomplished and set that as your goal.
