Are you one of those people who cannot find your car keys among your bills, receipts and newspapers from the past two weeks?
Or maybe you are one of those people that hold onto absolutely everything and can never get rid of anything?
Or possibly every morning you wake up with the best intentions of getting everything on your to-do list done but the problem is you canâ€™t find your to-do list.
Many people are like this and for people who are extremely organized it is really difficult to understand how anyone could live any other way.
For people who are unorganized it is actually a constant struggle and frustration in their lives. This constant struggle for organization and frustration can actually lead to health issues such as stress and anxiety.
When you canâ€™t find your car keys it makes you late to your appointment and when you canâ€™t find that cable bill it can result in your internet and cable being shut off by the company.
So if the benefits of being organized werenâ€™t motivated enough for you before, maybe the knowledge that organization in your life is actually a health benefit will get you going on your road to organization?
First of all being organized actually boosts your motivation[MotivationTips] and levels of energy. One person in my life had so many things to do and the energy to do them, however he was so overwhelmed by the â€˜pilesâ€™ and didnâ€™t even know where to start that he literally had no motivation.
Clutter and disorganization make you feel heavy and sluggish. Clutter makes you feel messy and dirty, overwhelmed and if anything, clutter makes you feel extremely unmotivated. So get organized and watch your motivation go out the roof!
Once you get organized you will have so much more free time that wonâ€™t be spent staring at your piles of â€˜to-doâ€™ things and thinking about the overwhelming tasks that lie ahead for you. Being organized actually gives you energy and boosts your focus.
Of course the most obvious and main health benefit to being, becoming and maintaining and organized lifestyle is that being organized will greatly reduce your stress and anxiety levels. Clearing the clutter and disorganization from your life will make things feel brighter and you will feel like a weight has been lifted off your chest.
You will also feel a whole new sense of control over your life and over things you before did not think possible.
