Share this post

So you want to feel like you’ve got your sh*t together? You’ve spotted women on social media who seem like they’re crushing it. They’re promoting their business goals, rocking killer abs, and showcasing their #HealthGoals salads.

And you sit back wondering if you can have just a slice of their “perfect” life. Well, we’re here to let you in on a little secret: no one has a perfect life. While it may seem that the people you follow are living a carefree life, we’re all figuring it out somehow.

We’re not here to perpetuate unrealistic standards of what your life should look like. Instead, we want to give you the tools to optimise your routine, kick admin to the curb and create more space in your day for what matters to you.

Ready to get started? Let’s dive into 13 easy life hacks you can try today.

  1. Make your bed every morning: this might seem simple, but it’s incredibly powerful. Making your bed every morning sets you up for a day of clear-headedness and productivity. And seeing your bed made at the end of the day is a heavenly feeling.
  2. Go through your bank statements and create a budget: this tip is all about leaning into the discomfort and tackling your finances head-on. The truth is that filtering through your bank statements helps to keep you accountable for the little things that add up quickly and give you an accurate snapshot of your financial position. You won’t become a financial guru overnight, but it enables you to track how your money moves and make more informed decisions.
  3. Track your daily tasks easily with software like Notion: visually laying out your day-to-day priorities can help to reduce stress and overwhelm when completing your to-do list. Notion helps you set reminders, save files, keep agendas, and organise your workload.
  4. Create the perfect 5-minute makeup routine: makeup doesn’t need to be part of your daily routine. But if it is, a clean, confidence-boosting makeup look doesn’t need to take hours to create. Go through your current routine, pick your favourite products (we love a great mascara, blush and concealer), and then create a look that makes you feel confident quickly, no matter the occasion.
  5. Find your go-to outfit formula: streamline your morning routine and beat decision fatigue by creating a capsule wardrobe. Rather than picking and creating new outfits each morning, a capsule wardrobe gives you a proven formula that takes the guesswork out of getting ready.  Buy a series of clothes that sit in your capsule wardrobe and spice them up with a blazer or a colourful coat, or add some red lippy. Step out of the house feeling a million bucks!
  6. Clear out your inbox: whether it’s your personal or work email, sometimes our inboxes get so flooded that we practically lose the most important emails. But there is a way to feel like you’re on top of your emails. You can create specific labels where your emails get directed automatically (check the Gmail step-by-step here), ensure spam emails are sent straight to junk and clear them out every month to save storage space.
  7. Master your meal prep recipes: dinner doesn’t have to be a mad rush each night. By planning your meals at the start of the week and having a few go-to recipes on-hand, you’ll feel like a pro in the kitchen, whether you’re hosting a dinner party, impressing the in-laws or simply need a delicious home-cooked meal.
  8. Ask for help when you need it: Do you find it hard to ask for help? You may feel like asking for help is a weakness, or you’ve “got this”. Well, you’re not alone. Many women struggle to reach out for help when they need it most. Whether you hire a nanny to help out with the kids, book a cleaner to tidy up your home or simply call up a friend when you need to blow off some steam. Remember to create a support network for yourself to thrive now and into the future.
  9. Keep a spare change of clothes at the office: have you got a fun dinner after work, but your work attire doesn’t exactly scream party? Well, leaving a spare change of clothes at the office means you can slip into something more comfortable without needing to rush home. Simply powder your nose, grab a bottle of champagne, and you’re ready to celebrate.
  10. Buy a portable charger: there’s nothing worse than seeing “Low Battery”, especially if you’re nowhere near a charging point. Carrying around a portable charger screams, “I have my sh*t together,” because you’re the one scheduling Ubers, finding the restaurant, texting friends and keeping it together.
  11. Drink lots of water (or herbal teas when water becomes too much): hydration is the key to feeling in control. Buying a practical water bottle to carry between meetings, or if you’re finding water challenging to drink, grab a box of Pukka tea to add some flavour to your day.
  12. Plan your workouts on a Sunday, ready for a fresh week: your Sunday can be spent however you wish, but there’s no better feeling than getting organised for the week ahead. Set yourself up for success at the gym, studio or track by planning your favourite workouts. Download a handy fitness app or buy yourself a calendar that you can mark at the end of each day.
  13. Reduce your time on social media (or see it for what it is): social media can be a place for positivity and productivity. Still, occasionally, we can get sucked into a vortex of self-comparison. To help yourself avoid these feelings, track your daily screen time, reduce time spent on social media, and only follow accounts that feel good. Also, ensure you create more than you consume.

And that’s a wrap! Prioritising self-care and finding ways to make yourself feel like a Queen will help you feel confident no matter what challenge life throws at you. You can try out a few of these tips to feel like you’ve got your sh*t together.
