Episode Summary:

While some people love to organize, others think it is a chore. Many patients are surprised to hear the number of health benefits associated with an organized life.

According to WebMD, taking a few minutes to organize your space during a slump in your day can give you a much-needed energy boost. Allowing yourself to finish your day by getting your desk or workspace organized can help you work more efficiently the next day, and help you have peace of mind to relax at the end of the day.

Interestingly, a study from Psychological Science found people who are organized also have better-eating habits. Avoid snacking on junk food at their desk by keeping it free from clutter. It is more likely you might opt-in for an apple than that candy bar. As we know, one good choice often leads to another!

Brushing up on your organizational skills can positively impact your sleep. This benefit is twofold.

A clutter-free space is more relaxing and invites rest. Additionally, being organized will prevent you from lying awake thinking about all the things to be done tomorrow.

This leads to the no brainer, being organized reduces stress. How many times are you in a rush but can’t find something you’re looking for? This sets a negative tone for the rest of the day. According to a study published in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletinpeople with cluttered homes were more depressed, fatigued, and had higher cortisol levels.

My goal on this episode of YOUNGER is to share the benefits of being organized, including a great technique to help you make this task less daunting. Let’s get started!

“Who would have thought tidying up could improve your life, right?!”

“When your belongings are in their rightful place, you can reduce the overwhelming feeling of having to put everything away, which can then help you find things when you need them.”

“Save time! Get organized to allow you do the things you’d rather be doing.”

“Knowing what you already have can also save you money! When you are disorganized, it is easy to over-purchase at the grocery store because you’ve forgotten what you already have.”

“When your home is tidy, you’ll feel more at ease with having people stop by for a visit.”
