There is one thing that I am a stickler for and that is keeping my home organized. It helps keep my stress levels down when things are in their place. If you have a lot of stress, one thing that will help is to get organized!
When my son was young and we had all his toys around, it would drive me crazy to see them all over the place. I had those large plastic boxes to keep thing organized. Now that all the toys are gone, I use them for organizing other things.
I’ve taken over much of the closet space for small kitchen appliances and the many many mason jars of all sizes that I use. I have these organized in low plastic bins in the closet.
Having a cluttered environment can distract you from the things you want to accomplish. Clutter occupies your senses with a barrage of external stimuli that are not necessarily important.
I find that sitting in a cluttered environment makes it difficult to physically and mentally relax and focus. I find that I cannot work in a cluttered environment.
Then I feel guilty because I know I should be more organized. Thankfully, once I get organized I can predict how long certain tasks will take (not so if I am confronted with clutter that has to be dealt with first), and I feel that there is an end in sight.
Clutter can make you anxious and frustrated because you can never seem to find what you need quickly and that will take up even more time.
Clutter can also interfere with creative thinking and brainstorming because these activities need space for expansive thinking.
Now there are many great organization tools that can help you to keep organized!
Here are some of my favorite organizers!
