Sometimes it’s the littlest things that make the biggest difference!
A tiny change to your behaviour or organisational system can make your day go so much smoother – and cutting out those little irritations can have a huge impact on your mood!
So here are our four favourite ‘life hacks’ – quick and easy changes to improve your life.
Put Your Keys, Phone and Wallet in the Same Place, Every Day
How much time do you think you’ve wasted over the years looking for your phone or your keys? And why can you never find them when you’re in a hurry?
Set aside a place in your house (and handbag too!) where you know you keep these items. It will make getting out the door so much simpler in the morning – and we all know how early morning stress can set us up for a bad day!
Create and ‘Emergency Card’ for Your Wallet
Simply take a business card-sized piece of white card and write the following information on it:
- Emergency Contact
- Blood Type (if you know it)
If you’re ever in an accident, this information could save your life!
Colour Code Your Keys With Nail Polish
Do you have a load of different keys on the same key chain? It can be difficult to tell one from the other, and it’s very frustrating when you can’t find the one you want.
With this simple hack, you can identify them easily – just paint the round end of each key with different coloured nail polish for an easy colour coding system. Never get the wrong key stuck in the lock again!
Not worn an item of clothing in 3 months? Send it to a charity shop.
Got a pile of magazines you’re never going to read? Recycle them.
Got a load of papers on your desk? Shred them.
De-cluttering your home and work environment not only makes things easier to find, it will improve your mood. Coming home to a messy house gives you an instant reminder that you have chores to do, coming home to a clean one will give you more time to relax!
