Being organized can be extremely hard to do especially if you are always on the go. On the contrary, there are many benefits to being organized. Here are 10 reasons why being organized helps every part of your life!
1. Less time looking, to achieve twice as much
Can’t even remember where you put that new notebook you just bought? Then you maybe should rethink organizing your home. Being organized means that achieving your dreams will be faster and easier than if you weren’t. Take the time to clean up to be able to sit down with yourself and write out what goals you want to accomplish. By having a clean area, you give yourself the ability to think without the stress of what needs to be cleaned while giving yourself the energy to take action of what you want to accomplish.
2. Gain more control
Whenever you feel your life is a bit out of control, a good place to look at is where you live. Feeling like clutter is piled up around you can actually make the mind feel cluttered too. You can feel lost without you really even realizing that the source of the problem is where you spend your relaxation time. By spending 10-20 minutes every day cleaning up the things around you, you will start to feel that your life is in more control since you are taking the action to do so for your home.
3. Proud home
Having a home that you are proud of will make you feel happier. Being organized on a daily basis will inspire you to do more with your life because cleaning won’t be an overwhelming feeling you are trying to tackle all the time.
You will want to have people over more often! Spending time with people makes us happy in general, and doing it in our own homes gives people a reason to let those we care about into our lives even more. It’s very healthy to enjoy life with the people you care about the most, and with a clean and organized home, you will be able to do it more!
4. Better sleep
Clutter gives us stress and when we have excess stress it becomes a lot harder to have a good night’s sleep. Meaning that everything in our life will slowly but surely start to feel out of control. It could start with your diet!
Not having enough sleep means you don’t have enough energy to get you through the day. This will lead you to find the perfect snack to fill that void. Eventually, that unhealthy meal will turn into meals and this will increase laziness also! Take the time to be organized because in the future you will be able to accomplish a lot more even if it’s just some great sleep!
5. Healthier you
As said previously, a healthy lifestyle can be determined based on your ability to have a clean and organized life. Without it, areas of life will feel stressful. It will feel as if nothing is going right in our life when in reality all it takes is a little clean up here and there around your place to make you feel good. When you are organized you brighten up! You will create a glow around you because you are completely relaxed and stress-free from any clutter that surrounds your life!
6. Being on time
When you feel the stress of an unorganized area, you feel the stress of time burning away at the scene. You can’t get anywhere on time because you are always looking for last-minute items that happen to be who knows where!
It’s annoying, frustrating, and pretty painful if you ask me. Taking the time to organize your belongings the night before will make you feel ready for anything ahead of you. It could be as little as making sure your purse has your keys, pen, wallet, and planner the night before because it becomes one less thing to think about when running out the door to that very IMPORTANT meeting you have! Make the time, so you don’t waste the time!
What happened to that part of you that was creative? Do you even remember her? She was awesome, wasn’t she? Being creative is usually somewhat a “messy” hobby, but it doesn’t have to be. If you are organized, you can make the time to be messy, to let your hair down, and let the creative juice flow between you and your favorite thing to do!
It’s harder to have fun when on the top of your to-do list is “clean entire life”. By taking the time to be clean, you will benefit in more ways you could only imagine, and one, in particular, will be the creativity part of you!
8. More money
Okay, so did you buy 3 spatulas on purpose, or did you forget you had them in the first place?! I’m guessing, life got a little cluttered and you couldn’t find the original spatula. That’s okay if you like to waste your money on the same product that you already have… Start getting organized to save you money.
You don’t want to keep spending money on things you already have. Think about all the money you could save if you just organized the chaos. There would be no more searching for “things” and more time for saving for that vacation trip in the Bahamas! Come on now, that sounds like a perfect trade-off!
9. Hello new me
Self-confidence is about to skyrocket into a new world with your new and organized home! By having everything in order, there’s a sense of confidence that emerges. You believe in yourself more since you are prepared for everything. You will have more time to focus on the most important things that need to get done. Or you could even find new things you didn’t even know you needed to focus on to come forth to you! Say see you later to the old you, and hello to the new, organized, and confident you!
10. Peace and energy
Feeling at peace is something we all want. We want to come home from a long and busy day and sit in our homes where it is meant to be our “safe place”. How do you expect to do that if everything around you is chaotic? Organizing is a therapeutic task if you let it be. Enjoy the process so that positivity can flow into your home. Let that good feeling energy fill you with happiness so that life can be more enjoyable in everything that you do!
