5 benefits to being organised
There’s a lot of importance put on being organised, but why does it matter? What’s the benefit in being organised?
Here I’ve listed five points below which I hope show the good points in being organised.
1) You can find things!
This point seems pretty obvious, but it’s the biggest “win”, as they say. You’re not having to spend 10 minutes every morning finding the car keys, the kids’ shoes, another child’s hat etc. Wouldn’t it be great if you had a place to hand where these things lived? To achieve that you’ve got to have the space clear in the first place.
2) Less stress
Being able to find things means that 10 minutes you’ve saved can mean a calmer morning- You’re less stressed as you walk out the door. Or maybe you’re not going to get stuck in that bit of traffic you hit every morning on the school run.
3) A healthier environment
Keeping the place tidy means it’s easier to clean. If you’re like me, and have dust allergies this is a great boost to your health. It’s easier to vacuum and wipe down surfaces if you’re not having to face moving everything out the way first.
4) Saving money
If you have a place for everything, it’s easier to know what you actually have.You don’t end up with five bottles of bleach and no shampoo for example (not that I’d recommend keeping those things in the same place!). You might even have time to make a packed lunch for you or the kids, which is a healthier and cheaper option all round.
5) A calmer you
If you’re not having to rush around in the morning finding things, knowing you’ve got more time to do your commute and knowing that your house is healthier, plus you’re saving money by doing so– why wouldn’t you do it? All these things add up to a calmer place for you to live in, and coming home at the end of the day is something to look forward to rather than dread.
I hope that this has helped show the benefits of being organised, and my next article will give helpful tips on how to get there.
