  • Habits to get your paperwork under control
  • Habits for your money
  • Habits to help with housekeeping

You can take a look at any of the categories that you are particularly struggling with at the moment, or try them all – totally up to you! So, let’s get started, and what better way than with your morning routine: –


Habits for your morning routine


  • #1 – Make the bed each morning – ideally let it air while you are in the bathroom and getting ready.
    • BENEFIT : automatically makes your bedroom feel clean and tidy and gives you a sense of order
  • #2 – Take any medication you need at the same time each day (I do this before I get out of bed so I don’t forget)
    • BENEFIT: This will stop stress when you realise halfway through the day that you haven’t taken it – use a medicine storage box** to make it easy to make sure you’ve taken them (it splits it up into days).
  • #3 – Always have breakfast
    • BENEFIT: Sets you up for the day – and people say you tend to snack less on unhealthy foods if you eat at the start of the day
  • #4 – Unload the dishwasher each morning
    • BENEFIT: You always start the day with all the items of your kitchen clean and ready to use
  • #5 – Leave the house as you would like to find it when you come home – tidy and clean
    • BENEFIT: saving hassle in the evening and giving you a calmer welcome home!
  • #6 – Try and get up at the same time each day
    • BENEFIT: Lie ins at the weekend can do more harm than good, making you feel sluggish for the rest of the day. Balancing your body clock will have a huge effect on your day! (If you struggle to get up, an alarm clock that wakes you with a sunrise type light** may well help make the habit easier)

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.

I struggle with my mornings, so am definitely trying to get all these habits into the start of the day as I know it will help me get more done and be calmer.

But what about the rest of the day – evenings are the next place to tackle…

    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. 🙁 I don’t know what I did wrong. Can you help me out?

    Thanks, Holly

    😉 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!

    • Chrissy @ Organise My House Sep 21, 2015 at 10:15 am #

    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

      Hi Jo – glad the list has inspired you! – Happy new year x

    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
