15 More Important Self Improvement List

1.    Time to Get Organized – Set up a filing system, get a calendar and keep it updated, throw out your unnecessary junk.

Once the initial work is done, all you have to do is maintain the organized systems.

2.    Time Chunk – Chunk your time into sections and give yourself an allotted time frame for whatever you are doing and stick to it.

Have you ever started cleaning out a closet in the bedroom and somehow found yourself cleaning the kitchen only to return to the bedroom and it’s still a mess? You’re not alone.

Give yourself 30 minutes to clean out a closet and then when the time is up. Move on to the next chore. Do this at work and at home and you’ll find you get a lot more accomplished each day.

3.    Use Your Cell Phone – Use your timer on your cell phone to time your tasks whether it is running errands or cleaning or making phone calls.

Knowing how long you generally spend on these tasks can help you see where you can make improvements which will reduce the stress in your life.

4.    Use Technology – Use your cell phone for reminders on your calendar; be it birthdays, appointments or remembering to take the clothes out of the dryer. Set up your bills to be automatically paid each month.

Research online ahead of time where you’ll get the best deals before going shopping.

Don’t be embarrassed or think you are failing at remembering. Instead consider it not having to worry about remembering because it’s done for you.

5.    Get an App – There is an app for everything today from traveling to banking.

When you are on the train or waiting in line at the store, you can things done that would normally have to wait for lunch hour or days off.

Being able to accomplish more during these wait times will give you more free time for yourself.

6.    Shut Down and Unplug – Take time off from technology and unplug from your social devices.

If you want to be a better you, you need connections – real life connections.

You need to see faces and hear voices and so do other people.

Take the initiative and plan a real-life coffee date. You’ll make a difference for yourself and for someone else.

7.    Pick and Choose Your Time – Only you can schedule your time productively.

If you choose to scroll on Facebook or to stay up late and oversleep in the morning, the results will be an unfocused and unproductive life.

Choose and schedule your time carefully and reap the positive benefits.

8.    Set Attainable Goals – If you set your sights too high, you are more likely to fail. It’s ok to have one big goal but break it into smaller attainable goals to work towards.


Completing these smaller goals will keep you motivated no matter how long it takes you to reach the final big goal.

9.    Grab an Accountability Partner – When you set a new goal, it’s important to let people know about it. It’s also important to obtain an accountability partner.






When you know you have to answer to your accountability partner and that others are watching your progress, you will work that much harder so you don’t disappoint anyone, including yourself.

You also have that partner cheering you on from the sidelines.

10.    Learn the Power of No – Learn how to say no; while difficult at first, it gets easier with time. Saying no frees you up to do what is necessary for a healthy, productive life.

11.    Incorporate Health Routines – Never forget the importance of health routines.

Keeping fit is your responsibility and it doesn’t have to be sixty hours of cardio or 100 pounds of weightlifting. A simple power walk will suffice, but do it daily and stick to it.

12.    Pay Attention to What You Eat – You only have one body. How you feed it is up to you. A happy body needs the proper nutrients for brain power and health. Avoid foods that only drag the body down. When you eat right, you feel great.

13.    Pay Attention to How You Eat – It’s just as important to pay attention to how you eat as it is to what you eat.

Take your time, slow down and eat sitting down. Try not to talk while eating. Take a few minutes to digest after eating. While it is the practice of today’s society to “do lunch,” it’s important to breathe right and eat right for proper digestion.

14.    Take a Time Out – Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths a few times a day, even if you have to go out to your car or take a bathroom break.

A few minutes of deep breathing and relaxation can reset your mindset for the rest of the day.

15.    Get the Proper Rest – Lack of sleep can make you feel bad and have negative thoughts. If you’re not getting enough sleep at night consider taking a power nap during the day.

Even 15 minutes can reset you mood, creativity and your focus. Set your alarm for 15 minutes and watch how much more energized you will feel afterward.

Drink a glass of water before bedtime to hydrate your body and help it flush toxins.

Drink another glass first thing in the morning before eating or drinking anything else to help kick start your organs.

Everyone wants to be the best they can be.

By following these tips you are well on your way to a more balanced, focused, energized life.

When you feel balanced, you’ll feel better about yourself and everything else around you.
