Do you need to organize? How does an organized home affect your well-being and health? How do you feel when you have an organized space? Did you realize that being organized can also help you stay healthy as well as improve your quality of life?

Organizing Eliminates Clutter from Your Mind

Yes, it’s the truth, an organized house can improve your health and well-being! A clean house is also easier to keep organized. You will develop the habit of cleaning more often and on a regular basis which helps eliminate not only  the excess dust and dirt in your home, but anxiety and tension as well. According to Shape magazine, women who feel their house is cluttered are more prone to fatigue, depression and stress.

This time of year is especially important to do whatever you can to get organized and get out with the old to come into a new season of spring and life. Everything is renewed so why not join in and get rid of that old stagnant clutter that is keeping you in the past and weighing you down? It feels good to get a new start!

When your house is organized there is an ease to life. You will have less lost items to look for, less time spent looking for them and peace of mind with less confusion. By having a plan to organize and stay organized, you have less stress and overwhelm that comes with having to remember where you buried an important paper in the most recent stack or find that overdue library book.

With a plan to organize and stay organized, your self-esteem increases, and you are able to think more clearly. This helps to let go of emotional baggage attached to your clutter and also to be able to move into action more quickly!

You Save Money when You Organize

Are you having trouble finding that bill that was due two days ago? Are you buying things you already have because you couldn’t find the ones that went missing in your house? Organizing can save you money by keeping you on top of things. And saving money helps foster well-being.

Lost items, forgotten and missed appointments or forgotten errands can all wind up costing you money! These can all be avoided by getting organized and freeing up your mind to remember those things that are most important.

Organize and Save Time

The other benefit of being organized is time saving, which is definitely good for your health! Why spend time running around your house, stressed and upset? Time is a precious commodity, and the more time you have, the less pressure you feel.

Another plus to saving time is that it provides you an opportunity to have more balance in your life. And, everyone knows that a life in balance is a life lived in harmony. Spending less time cleaning and searching through the clutter in your house opens the door to more activities that can eliminate stress.

With free time on your hands, you have more opportunities to participate in enjoyable activities, such as leisure time or time spent with family and friends. It also leaves more time to spend on hobbies or exercising, both of which are attributed to a more positive attitude and well-being.

Being Organized and Sleep

When organization is a way of life, you have less to do and worry about when your head hits the pillow. You are prepared for the next day, the laundry is clean, and even if it’s not, at least you know where your favorite pair of shoes are for tomorrow’s big meeting, and your presentation is finished! There is less commotion in your life and your mind, which contributes to a good night’s rest.
