When you imagine yourself walking into a cluttered space full of stacks and piles of your belongings, how do you feel? I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that you would not feel relaxed, refreshed, or restored. I wouldn’t either.
Now imagine yourself stepping into a clutter-free space you are proud of, where there is room to relax and unwind. Doesn’t that feel better?
Clutter makes us feel overwhelmed, stressed, and anxious. Living in disorganization day in and day out is a detriment to our emotional well-being. We are not our best selves when we live in constant stress. We all deserve better! Let’s look at some of the emotional benefits of organizing our spaces.
Looking at clutter overloads our brains which can cause stress. Having tidy spaces isn't just about looking nice, it's about giving our brains a break from being overloaded. You know those piles of laundry that upset you every time you look at them? Once you sort and put them away, you will feel so good!
Increased Focus and Productivity:
Clutter, both seen and unseen, takes up a lot of mental space. Our brains have so much to focus on throughout the day, and clutter does not need to be one of them. Organizing your space can maximize your brain's ability to focus on your To-Do list and increase your productivity. This is especially important as more of us are working from home and finding it more and more difficult to focus on the task at hand.
Do you want to be a more positive person? Positivity is infectious! Being in a space that you love and are proud to show off will drastically improve your mindset. You'll feel lighter, brighter, and happier!
We know that organizing has a positive impact on our emotional well-being, so let’s not wait to start! Get a piece of paper or open the notes in your phone. Write down how your space currently makes you feel. Next, write down how you hope to feel in your space, but make these words big, bold, and colorful. Let these words be your motivation throughout your organizing journey.
Once you have your words written down, sign up for my FREE Organizing Workshop that will teach you how to organize with confidence. You will learn to simplify your space, sort your clutter, and organize your entire home!
Most importantly, remind yourself that you deserve to live in a space that makes you feel calm, relaxed, and happy. You’ve got this!
