While some of us are naturally organized, others prefer taking time before sorting their areas. Maybe due to overflowing schedules, other commitments, or it is just how they are. No judgment.
But if you have ever run late or been unable to turn in a project for class because you cannot seem to remember, I guess it is reasonable to assume that you need to start organizing. Besides preventing such things, here are other benefits of being organized.
Instead of wasting time looking for stuff you need to bring to school, an organized working area will help you spot it right away. With that, you get to save time and less stress for you. The same holds true at work. If you ever feel burnt out and stressed just by sitting in front of your computer, then better start decluttering. You may not notice, but a clean space boosts productivity.
Who would not get annoyed by the sight of a mess? Of course, no one. A space well-arranged is a stress relief for all of us. How nice would it be to see your books stacked up well? Or are your clothes finely folded? A short answer – it was very nice.
Better Quality of Sleep
Do you remember that moment when you feel like you forgot to do or buy something, that even when you’re already in bed, it still bothers you? Listing your daily schedules will help you at ease by giving a clear picture of what you have accomplished and what you haven’t.
A messy bedroom or bed will also make you stay up late to complete tasks you have not yet completed. By being organized, you have nothing to worry about but sleep and rest at night. A good night indeed.
Since you have a clear plan of your days ahead, you will have more time to allow yourself for things you actually want to do, like watching a series, visiting a friend, or time for the family. Given that you have allotted enough time for yourself, it will fuel you to work when weekdays come again.
Gives a Sense of Accomplishment
It gives me a sense of accomplishment to see my room after a seemingly general kind of cleaning. I feel like I have done well for the day. It is satisfying to look around without seeing any dust or any piece of rolled tissue. This may sound too much, but a neat room is a happy me.
Our days may have run different, but it doesn’t give us an excuse to not look for the closest things we should get done. I hope this list will let you realize that organizing is a healthy habit.
