Staying Organised with Chronic Illnesses

Hey my Lovelies,

I haven’t posted a blog in around a month now and I thought I’d come back with this one to drop in with an update on how I’m keeping & to also say ‘Hi’ 👋

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been determined to become more organised and develop some sort of routine to keep me grounded whilst battling on with physical and mental illnesses.

Whilst I was at Hyper Japan Winter 2018  I picked myself up a Molang Notebook as I thought it was cute, I wasn’t sure of what I’d do with it but finally decided to use it for staying organised.

 

 

I write out my tasks to do for every week and split them into three categories; Personal, Medical & Spiritual (just so happens to be the acronym PMS, haha)

As you can see from my photos I draw little boxes so that I can tick off my tasks during the week to keep track of how many things I was able to get through. On the blank page at the back, I write a review of how things are going and if I remember I’ll write a little note day-by-day to say what happened, how I coped with any tasks or if I was unable to attend a medical appointment due to being housebound etc.

So far I have three fully completed weeks in my To-Do List Notebook and currently on my fourth for my weekly tasks set for the 4th-10th of this month.

Some days I forget to write down what has happened and if I’ve completed a task but I’ll usually be able to document my completed activities by the end of the week and so I’ll try my hardest to carry on doing this.

Benefits of writing a To-Do List :

  • Helps to remember important medical appointments you need to attend during the week
  • A way of tracking where your energy is going
  • Great exercise for the brain, helps to keep the brain working, especially when you suffer from cognitive issues

 

Tips to keep your To-Do List Organised

When writing out to-do list it’s easy to become overwhelmed with the tasks that you’ve set yourself to do, so there are small things you can do to stay motivated.

 

  1. Don’t make your To-Do List too crowded with tasks
  2. Set smaller goals/tasks so that they can add up and contribute to accomplishing a bigger goal
  3. Create a system that works for YOU

 

Staying organised has been a dream of mine since forever, haha. I’m nowhere near the level of oragnisation that I want my discombobulated life to be. I know that with small steps this method that I have created for myself + My Mental Health: Mood Tracker will help me to achieve the small things I want and essentially bigger things in the long run.

How do you cope with staying organised whilst chronically ill?!

I hope you too can find a method that helps you to take a step closer towards being Chronically Fabulous & Organised!
