Why is good to be organised? From completing important tasks earlier to knowing where important items are, being organised has numerous advantages not just for your professional life, but for your personal life as well.
Yet despite this, becoming organised is something that many people – from young to old – put off throughout their lives. After all, when you’re not very organised, it often seems impossible to become more organised, attentive and prepared.
In this blog post, we’ll share five reasons why living a more organised life makes any person feel better. Whether you’re a student, professional, artist or adventurer, read on to discover why it’s worth becoming a more organised version of yourself.
A more organised life means less stress
Did you know that tidying up your life – whether it’s your bedroom or your personal schedule – will help you become less stressed? While the task of organising your life probably won’t reduce your stress levels, the end results will.
Why? Because when you’re neat and organised, there are far fewer surprises to give you a stressful shock. From your finances to your bookshelf, being organised means fewer shocks and surprises, which in turn means significantly less stress.
A more organised life means more free time
Do your days constantly seem to go by without much time to spare? When your life is unorganised, leisure time flies by because so much of your time is spent living by the moment on tasks and errands.
An important part of being organised is learning how to account for your time and set strict deadlines for yourself. From your work to your afternoon run, create your own schedule and stick to it to reclaim your free time and enjoy more of life.
An organised home means fewer lost possessions
Whatever happened to your favourite shirt? Where did those socks you bought last month end up? When your home is messy and full of clutter, it’s easy for important items to go missing and not turn up for months at a time.
Decluttering your home is quick and simple, and keeping it decluttered and highly organised has hundreds of benefits. The biggest, of course, is that you’ll remember where everything is and rarely lose any important items.
A more organised life means better health
When you organise your life, you free up massive amounts of time that’s otherwise spent on unimportant tasks. In addition to reducing your stress levels, this means that you have more time to focus on exercise and healthy living.
From making a salad at home instead of picking up that burger on the way home from work to spending an extra half-hour at the gym, having more free time is an excellent way to regain a focus on your health, fitness and wellbeing.
A more organised life means better relationships
When was the last time you called your aunt or uncle? How about the last time you enjoyed a leisurely day with your partner. When you’re more organised, you have far more free time to spend maintaining and developing relationships.
In addition to having extra free time, the reduced stress of being more organised is an incredible benefit for minimizing disputes and arguments. Since you’ll feel more relaxed and comfortable, everyday conflicts are far less likely to occur.
