Things you can do today to make tomorrow much easier

I'm a big believer in that if your mind is prepared for the next day, it can make the world of difference to your mental health. Say if its a Sunday evening, and you know Monday's are usually manic, you can do small things in the day to make it that bit easier. There's nothing worse than waking up and feeling like you've forgotten something once you've left the house, or feeling all discombobulated. 

Here's a few tips of mine of things you can do today to make tomorrow better!

  • Write a to-do list. 
  • Invest in a daily planner. I've found that these are an actual lifesaver, especially one's where you can write down a full page for the day.
  • If something pops into your head in the day and you think, 'I need to remember to do that tomorrow!' - WRITE IT DOWN in tomorrow's date.
  • Check your emails once a day. This will stop the dreaded build-up of emails. If you're like me and let them build up into their thousands, and that thought is in your head, spend some time deleting the rubbish and filing the ones you need to keep.
  • Set aside some time for yourself to prepare for the morning after. Plan your outfit, if possible have it all ready.
  • Think of an achievable goal for tomorrow and try to smash it. It could be something simple, like putting all the washing away, or cleaning out the kitchen draw - it doesn't matter! As long as its achievable and you complete it, it will work wonders for your mindset.
  • Call a loved one. That relative you've been meaning to talk to for the longest of time, or that friend you really need to check up on - grab five minutes out of your day to give them some of your undivided attention. You'll feel so much better for doing so.
  • Meal plan for tomorrow, so its not so much of a chore to prepare everything there and then.
  • Make a note of things that have zapped your energy throughout the day, so you know to possibly avoid them as much as you can tomorrow.
