As a kid of divorce, you are always looking for ways to make your situation easier.

Here is one:

Get. Organised.

Trust me, it helps.

Why Get Organised?

It is commonly known that organising yourself in the real world can help organise your thoughts.

As a kid of divorce, you often have a million thoughts going around in your head.

Organising your day-to-day can seriously help with this.

Leading an organised life can help you have the mental capacity to focus on your life goals and ambitions.

Organisation can also help with common things kids of divorce face, such as:

  • Forgetting things at one home

  • Feeling as though you don’t have a ‘set space’ of your own

  • Overcoming the overwhelming feeling of having to pack a bag each time you go between homes

Give Me An Example

Example Each time you pack your clothes away, you do so in an organised way. All of your t-shirts are together, all of your pants etc. It is transition day and you have to pack a bag. Packing is made easier due to your organisation – you don’t have to go looking for specific items, because you already know where they are.

You might be thinking, that is a super simple and silly example.

But, the reality is, living in two homes makes it hard to even keep all of your clothes organised.

Organising your clothes is a great start and something that can really help you with transition days and feeling as though you have you ‘own space’.

How Can I Get Organised?

1. Get a weekly planner

It doesn’t have to be super fancy or complex, but writing down what you have on each day of the week can help clear stress and organise your plan of action each day

2. Have a to-do list

Sometimes, it is easy to forget the simple yet necessary tasks that you have to do each week. Having a to-do list can help you achieve all of those tasks

(and it’s super satisfying ticking off each task once complete)

3. Stay on top of the small tasks

If you can keep up with the small tasks, the big things will feel organised. For example, packing away your clothes in the correct spot each time you take them off will avoid you having to do a ‘big clean up’ at some later point.

Whilst the small tasks may seem annoying at the time, you will be saving yourself a heap of time and effort in the long run.

You’re Not Alone

Get! Organised!

Do it for you, do it for your mind, your goals and ambitions.

Being organised can instantly make you feel accomplished.

If you find it challenging to stay organised, you’re not alone. Just focus on the benefits it will bring you, both short and long term.

And never be afraid to ask for help.

You’ve got this.
