Here are top 10 reasons for being organised

1. Being organised can reduce your stress

Clutter can be a constant visual reminder of how much you have going on in your life and how much you need to do.  Misplaced belongings within your home, particularly important documents and the stress created by the loss of these items can be reduced by a little organisation.

2. Being organised can save you money

With a little organisation, specifically implementing the organising concept of creating a dedicated home for your all belongings, you can increase the life of your belongings as are less likely to get accidentally damaged, dirty or misplaced when not in use, which in turn saves you money in having to replace these items.  Being aware of all the items in your fridge and pantry, can reduce your grocery bill and by keeping across your paperwork you can avoid late payments and associated late fees.

3. Being organised can reduce the amount of housework you do

Okay, this is the big one for me as I really dislike the way house affects my mood negatively. Everything you own is demands your time and attention. I like my clients to look at each item in their home not only with the monetary value, but in time.  Time to use the item, time to care for the item, time to put it away, time to get it out, time to maintain it.  That can be a lot of time you a dedicating to something that you may not even be using. The less you have, the less your home demands of you,  The less items you have, the less mess you can make.  The less mess you can make, the less house work you need to do.  I’ve written more about how to have an organised home when you hate cleaning, you can read about it here.

4. Being organised can create more time for the things you love

If organised, you can be more productive with your time and do tasks more efficiently.  You can spend less time searching for misplaced items or reworking unfinished tasks and have more time to do the things you want to do.

5. Being organised can create calm and a peace of mind

An organised space and an organised mind can manifest feelings of calm as you surround yourself only with the things you love and that make you happy. Your own sanctuary.

6. Being organised can improve your physical health

As the saying goes, by having a place for everything and everything in its place, you can prevent injuries from tripping on items left on the floor or from items falling from over-packed shelves or cupboards.  Even allergies and respiratory issues can reduce in environments with less clutter.

7. Being organised can improve your mental health

Good organisation can help you relax and unwind at the end of each day and can assist in alleviating anxiousness, frustration, being overwhelmed or feeling out of control.

8. Being organised can create the feeling of more space

When our tables, bench tops and floors are clear, it feels like our space is larger and if you take it a step further and remove all the items from the home that you no longer use or need you may find you have extra storage space.

9. Being organised can create a home which is more inviting

By only having your cherished furniture and belongings within your home, you can create a more relaxing and welcoming space. More you. Depending on your personality, the prospect of having guests enter your home may not be quite as daunting.

10. Being organised can help you to develop a sense of pride and confidence in your home and self

Completing tasks, meeting your deadlines, being on time for your appointments and no longer needing to search for misplaced items as you know where to find everything in your home can have a huge impact on your self-confidence and overall wellbeing.

Okay, do you agree that the benefits of organising all wonderful? Something that you would love for yourself, but, here’s the big BUT… you don’t see how? It sounds too good to be true?

I can understand that, I’m just throwing out benefits with no evidence.  That evidence will come, stick with me here on my blog, we will explore each of these claims in detail – but for now believe that a little organisation can make a positive impact on your life and if you need support in your home, please feel free to reach out.
