List of 10 ways
This article will list 10 ways that can help you stay organized in the university. Before reading my article, consider that:
– I have been a university student for four years now and I have seen it all over those years. This means that from my years of experience as a university student, I know what works and what doesn’t.
– I have listed 10 ways to stay organized in the university, but the more of these steps you take, the more benefit you will get from it. You can always start with just one or two of them and then slowly add more over time. When you feel that you have had enough of it, stop adding more new ones.
– I have kept it simple and to the point, so if you feel overwhelmed reading this article, don’t be. This is not supposed to overwhelm you. It’s just a small step that can lead you to great results in your university life.
10 ways to stay organized in the university
The term “organized” is key here.
You know that you are organized if all the necessary information related to your classes, resume, e-mails, shoes, groceries, etc. are stored in a place where you have access to them at any time without having to look for them.
The following list will explain how not to stay disorganized. You don’t have to use all of them, but you could pick the ones that are best for you and your lifestyle.
WRITE YOUR SCHEDULE DOWN
This is not very common among students, but it can be very useful if you have a busy schedule during the week or every day. Some people have a hard time memorizing their schedule, so writing it down can be helpful.
You can use a day planner or a sticker on the back of your iPhone.
The most important part is that you have everything planned and marked in a specific place, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting something important during the week.
USE A PLANNERS
This one is very common among students, but it’s still better to use a planner to write down your schedule instead of using a phone app. It takes less space and you have everything in one place. You can get a simple planner from any store or an online shop where they have a ton of designs and choices.
Don’t forget to carry it with you everywhere so you can fill it in during your free time or on the bus/train when you are on your way to university.
USE A CALENDAR ON YOUR PHONE
For some people using a planner is not practical, so using an app for your phone can be a more convenient option.
Calendars and schedules on your phone can help you to organize and remember the things that you have to do.
It’s nice because it is right there, but it only works if you use it every day. Just like with planners, you need to take it with you everywhere so that you can update it whenever necessary.
WRITE DOWN YOUR TASKS AND SHOES ON THE DOOR
This way you can see it every day and don’t have to worry about forgetting what you need to buy or do when going out in the morning/afternoon/evening.
It’s a very practical method because your tasks are placed right in front of you, making it easier to remember them. If you don’t have a door where you can write your tasks on, then you could try writing it/them on the wall next to your desk or bed.
DO NOT LAYOUT YOUR CLOTHES BEFORE BED
You will never be able to sleep if you know that there are a bunch of clothes on your bed and it will be even harder to wake up in the morning.
Don’t lay out anything next to your bed, but put everything away.
USE YOUR SHOES EVERY DAY
Usually, people focus on what shirt, pants, or accessories they need for a specific day and forget about their shoes.
They might not be the most important item when it comes to clothes, but you can’t go out with ripped jeans and sneakers.
Try to use your shoes every day because that way you will know how good they are and also when it’s time for a new pair (if there is such a need).
TRY TO KEEP THE CLUTTER AWAY
Try to keep the things that you don’t use every day away in a closet where you can easily access them when you need them.
You will be surprised by how much space is wasted when your clothes are just lying there or when they are too tight in your drawer because they are also lying there.
TRY NOT TO TACKLE ALL OF YOUR WORK AT ONCE
Studying is a good thing, but not if it starts to affect your mental and physical health. Sometimes trying to do everything at once can be stressful.
