Follow these top 10 tips to help you get organised:

1: Set Clear Goals: Start by defining clear, achievable goals for what you want to accomplish in terms of organisation. Having specific objectives in mind can provide motivation and direction.

2: Create a Routine: Establish daily routines and stick to them as closely as possible. Consistency in your daily schedule can help reduce distractions and increase productivity.

3: Use Visual Aids: Visual cues, like calendars, to-do lists, and color-coding, can be highly effective for individuals with ADHD to track tasks and deadlines.

4: Declutter Regularly: Set aside time for regular decluttering sessions. This prevents overwhelming accumulation and helps maintain an organised environment.

5: Break Tasks into Smaller Steps: When facing a complex task, break it down into smaller, manageable steps. This can make the process feel less daunting and more achievable.

6: Prioritize Tasks: Determine which tasks are most important and need immediate attention. Focus on completing high-priority tasks first to prevent procrastination.

7: Use Technology: Utilise digital tools and apps for reminders, scheduling, and note-taking. There are many apps designed to support organization and time management.

8: Set Time Limits: Assign specific time limits to tasks to prevent hyper focus on one task at the expense of others. Use timers or alarms to help you stay on track.

9: Get Organized Physically: Invest in organising tools like shelves, bins, and filing systems. Keep frequently used items in easily accessible places.

10: Seek Support: Don't hesitate to seek support from a professional organiser, therapist, or support group. They can provide guidance, motivation, and tailored strategies for managing ADHD-related challenges.
