Helpful Tips to Get Organized
Declutter your home
It is energy-draining when your house is a mess, as where you start and end your day has a big effect on your outlook. Don’t get distracted by micros – there is no need for in-depth organizing. The important part is to put everything in its proper place. Determining the correct place for each item, and returning it there every time is the biggest problem solver in de-cluttering.
Learn to say no
Setting boundaries for yourself and others is one key to becoming more organized. Knowing you have preset limits can help decrease your stress level. Don’t automatically say “yes” to requests for help from others. Evaluate each request before responding. Protect your time.
Planning your day ahead of time greatly helps in reducing your stress level. This will alleviate feelings of being rushed all the time. Take time at the end of the day to plan for tomorrow. If you do this, you will feel far more relaxed and in control.
Proactivity is the key
Being proactive with your problems is part of being organized. Unaddressed problems accumulate, and your emotional clutter is probably affecting you more than anything else. Solve the issues that you can, then pay attention to different stressors in your life, and work to manage and eliminate them.
- Break down larger tasks into smaller, more manageable chunks. This will help you stay focused and motivated.

Advantages of Being More Organized
If you’re more organized, you will feel in control, instead of feeling you are being swept along by the events of the day. And any choices made while not under pressure will result in better decision-making.
