Being organized at home or in the workplace is something that can enhance the quality of your life. Wondering how? Let me break it down for you.
1) Less stress
Your brain is always scanning the environment for cues of things that require effort or energy. When your surroundings are disorganized, the brain perceives that the tasks at hand require more energy than your current capacity. So this triggers a stress response. Some people experience racing thoughts and become overwhelmed. By getting organized, you can eliminate things that trigger a stress response.
2) More time to relax
Being organized at home or in the workplace also helps you create time for relaxation. You will be able to finish your work on time and avoid a last minute rush. You can rest easy knowing you will find whatever you want whenever you want it because everything will be in place.
3) More time with the family
With clutter out of the way, you will have more time to spend with your loved ones. You can sit down and watch your favorite sitcom, help your kids with homework, or engage in outdoor activities over the weekend.
4) Improved health
Clutter isn’t just stressful to the brain but impacts on your health negatively. You may find yourself sleeping less, eating less, or missing your daily workouts just because you can’t stay on top of things at work or at home. By being organized, you will experience less stress and anxiety and have peace of mind.
5) Fewer little jobs
Who wants to start a new day while still trying to complete the previous day’s work? The more organized you become, the less tasks you will have on your list. You can reduce your workload and have less work to do as the day goes by. This way, you will complete vital tasks much faster and finish up with less urgent ones.
6) Greater productivity and efficiency
Let’s not debate about this. Looking at clutter or things that distract you not only overloads the visual cortex, but interferes with how your brain processes information. When you’re organized, you will be able to accomplish more with little effort. That’s what it means to be efficient. And most importantly, you will be able to tackle all the important work or tasks.
7) Saves money
By being organized, you become more efficient and so you are able do more work more in the workplace. The other thing is that you will avoid buying duplicates of things that you already have but can’t find at home.
The bottom line is organizing yourself will improve the quality of your life, health, relationships, and reputation at the workplace. Get organized and watch how your life will change for the better, will you?
