Hi! – I’m so glad you’ve stopped by today, and I really hope you’re looking forward to getting an amazing list of great habits that can truly change your day to day life. Let’s get started straight away, shall we!

Habits can literally change your life - create good habits and you will create an easier and less stressful life. Get organised now with these 52 new habits along with a benefit for each for added motivation.



Life can be hard – rushing around all the time and never feeling like you actually get anything you really want done…

Habits can help. They’ve helped me to get more organised and find more time in my day – and I’m sure they can do the same for you.

Habits - quote - life quote - Organise My House

After I read the amazing book “The Power of Habit” by Charles Duhigg** (which I would really recommend if you want to understand about why and how we create habits – it’s fascinating…), I was struck by how powerful habits really are.

Habits are things that become part of your life without you even thinking about them, and because they don’t take up any brain space they tend to give you more time without you even realising it.

Let me ask you a quick question… – when you brush your teeth each day, do you think about not doing it at all, or do you just get on with it?

You will more than likely have thought that a strange question – after all, we all brush our teeth every morning and evening – it takes a few minutes and then is done. We don’t talk ourselves out of doing it as we know it needs to be done, and we know what time and when in our day we should do it. It has become so simple to do that we just do it.

It’s become a habit.

If we can make lots of positive things in our life a habit like this, things that after a while become second nature, then we can help ourselves and our lives will run more smoothly each and every day.


In this post I have written down some of the best habits to try out in your own day – 52 in total!

Having a new habit each week for a year means that over the next year you can set up a day to day life that really works for you – giving you a less stressful and easier life.

Of course, you may already be doing some of these – and some may not suit the way you live (or who you live with etc…), so feel free to make a list of your own – let this be your inspiration and a guide to get you started.


I have made things even easier for you as well, by listing not only all the habits, but also a benefit for each one.

This is because knowing the “WHY” will motivate you to do it.

If you clean your teeth, you won’t need as much dental work, you will have fresh breath, and your teeth will stay in good condition. We began to clean our teeth knowing all these facts, and when we were little that is what we were told each day to make sure they were cleaned. Once it became habit we still new the benefits, but they mattered less as they were now instilled in us.

The benefit will be the motivation you can use to keep doing something until it becomes that habit.

Habits can literally change your life - create good habits and you will create an easier and less stressful life. Get organised now with these 52 new habits along with a benefit for each for added motivation.

    HI!! I love your site! (I found it on Pinterest and went from there!) I sent in my email to get the 52 habits list, but it never arrived. πŸ™ I don’t know what I did wrong. Can you help me out?

    Thanks, Holly

    πŸ˜‰ Had I only been reading through the list, I probably wouldn’t have noticed, but I was copying them down into my planner / journal when I realized one was missing. Thanks for your update!

    Happy to say that 5 items on the list are already my habits so this week I’ll star setting the breakfast table the night before which should encourage me to also eat breakfast EVERY day. Thanks for a great list. Jo @ Let’s Face the Music

    Re: Evening routines. You should NEVER put a dishwasher, tumble drier or washing machine on before you go to bed. These items are the frequent causes of house fires. My dishwasher caught fire just as I was about to go out shopping and fortunately I was around to put it out. I was in the habit of putting these items on as I went to work so it would all be ready when I came home. Now I only put these items on when I am home and can keep an eye on them

      Hi Meriel

      Thanks so much for your comment. You are totally right, as I’ve recently heard that insurance can be null and void if you have left the house when one of these items is on and it causes a fire. I have now updated that in the post to be to set the dishwasher straight after tea so it’s finished by bedtime. You still have the result of clean dishes when you wake up – but everything’s off overnight.

      Have a great weekend!
      Chrissy x
