In the fast-paced and chaotic world we live in, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and disorganized. Whether it’s managing daily tasks, dealing with clutter, or feeling mentally scattered, getting organized can significantly improve our overall well-being. Embarking on a life reset journey can be transformative, helping you regain control, reduce stress, and create a more balanced and fulfilling life. In this blog post, we’ll provide a comprehensive life reset checklist to help you get organized and set the stage for a fresh start.
If you are new to the blog, welcome! I blog about cleaning, decluttering, and organizing. You can find my free printables to help you get organized in the drop down menu under the Printables category.
Life Reset Checklist to Get Organized
- Assess Your Current Situation:
The first step in my life reset checklist is to do a little personal evaluation. Take a step back and evaluate various aspects of your life, including physical space, daily routines, and mental well-being. Identify areas that need improvement or decluttering, and recognize both strengths and weaknesses.
- Set Clear Goals:
Define your goals and what you want to achieve through this life reset. Whether it’s to declutter your home, improve time management, or cultivate healthier habits, having clear objectives will keep you focused and motivated. You can get my Free Printable Goal Planning Page here.
- Create a Master To-Do List:
Compile a comprehensive to-do list that encompasses all the tasks required to achieve your goals. Prioritize the items on the list and break them down into smaller, manageable steps. You can find my Free Printable Daily To Do List here.
- Declutter Your Living Space:
Start by decluttering your physical environment. Go through each room and get rid of items you no longer need, use, or love. Donate or recycle things that are in good condition but no longer serve you. Join my Year Long Declutter Series here for daily declutter tasks. In the Year Long Thorough Declutter Series, we will declutter 30 minutes a day, five days a week on weekdays. Sign up to receive daily encouragement and motivation.
- Organize Your Home:
Implement effective organizing systems to keep your living space tidy and functional. Invest in storage solutions, such as shelves, bins, and drawer organizers, to maintain order in your home. You can find lots of tips to get organized under the Organizing category at the top of this page in the drop down menu.
- Streamline Your Digital Space:
Extend your decluttering efforts to your digital life. Organize files on your computer, delete unnecessary emails, and declutter your smartphone by removing unused apps.
- Create Daily and Weekly Routines:
Establish daily and weekly routines that help you stay on track and accomplish tasks efficiently. Schedule time for work, relaxation, exercise, and other essential activities to strike a healthy balance.

- Practice Time Management:
Use time management techniques such as the Pomodoro Technique or time-blocking to make the most of your day. Prioritize tasks based on urgency and importance. Read my post here on Time Management (Be On Time): Life Skills Everyone Should Master.
- Cultivate Mindfulness and Self-Care:
Take care of your mental and emotional well-being. Practice mindfulness, praying, or journaling to care for your spirit and reduce stress. Regularly attend church. Dedicate time for self-care activities that rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit. You can even begin a gratitude journal. You can find my free Gratitude Page Printable here.
- Set Boundaries:
Learn to say no to commitments that overwhelm you and set healthy boundaries with others. Establishing boundaries will give you more control over your time and energy. Read my post here on Setting Boundaries and Standing Your Ground: How to Say No Effectively.
- Evaluate Your Relationships:
Reflect on your relationships and consider which ones bring positivity and fulfillment into your life. Surround yourself with supportive and uplifting individuals.
- Set Financial Goals:
Assess your financial situation and set clear financial goals. Create a budget, save for the future, and minimize unnecessary expenses. Get my Free Printable Financial Planner Pages here.
- Pursue Lifelong Learning:
Embrace the idea of continuous learning. Enroll in courses, attend workshops, or explore new hobbies that challenge and stimulate your mind. Make a list of things you would like to learn, and then create a daily habit of either reading about that topic or learning from free online sources.
