Simple Tasks You Can Do to Make Life Easier

Note: This post originally published in March 2020 – a crazy time, right?! It has lots of great updated information, so I’m resharing again today in hopes that it will be helpful as you start the year.

I consider myself to be a fairly organized and tidy person and I do my best to stay on top of life’s daily to-dos. While I certainly don’t have it all together, I have taken a lot of steps in my life to organize our house, my life, and my schedule. Change doesn’t happen overnight and it’s the little habits you create that can set you up for success in the long-term. I recently read the book Atomic Habits and the author emphasizes how it’s those tiny changes that you make to your routine that set you up for success. (I highly recommend the book…a great read!)

I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite simple tasks to make life easier.

13 Simple Tasks to Make Life Easier

Unsubscribe from Unwanted Emails

Yes, I am a person who always has my inbox at zero. Watching that number of unread emails creep up really stresses me out! A big part of my success in maintaining my inbox is the fact that I unsubscribe from unwanted emails immediately. In Gmail, there is often an unsubscribe button right at the top of emails and whenever I receive an unwanted email, I use that button and unsubscribe immediately. I also use unroll.me for all of my email addresses to help me unsubscribe from emails and keep others organized. I highly recommend it!

Now, this might be controversial, but I rarely reply to emails on my phone. I’m a computer girl all the way. I told this to Finn recently, and he was shocked! Ha! I didn’t realize it was weird. I will read emails on my phone and mark them as unread, which means that I have to follow-up. I like to be able to sit down at my computer, gather my thoughts, and really respond to someone. This keeps me on track and cuts down on any typos.
