Organizing doesn't just mean your schedule or your things - your sensitive headspace needs to be tended to as well.
Try these tips:
1. Disconnect! - Put your phone away, turn off the tv, unplug anything that has to do with technology.
2. Make fun! - Build a snowman if you have snow, make a playlist of your favorite songs and have a dance party, go on a road trip for a couple hours somewhere you've never been, or bake a cake...do something that makes you smile and your heart giddy.
3. Rest bursts - During your workday, don't forget to take some small moments to refresh and let go of some steam. Stand up from your desk and do 10 jumping jacks or sit ups OR go in to the stall of your office bathroom and shake your hands, massaging your face and jaw. If your workday is strenuous, sit and read one page of a book, or meditate for 5 mins.
4. Connect - with a project you've had on the table for months, or start one you've been thinking about. Share it with a friend and update them on how it's going. Connecting with your personal pleasures and reaching out to your relationships eases tension and strain.
