Life Matters,  Out and About

Getting organised is good for you

Getting organised is good for you. It can even be life-changing. But before this happens it requires a decision to change. I made the decision many years ago and my life is better for it.

My last post was titled “Under the kitchen sink”. This post was about being organised and I mentioned that there are benefits to living an organised life. At the same time, it is best not to be too rigid and over-organised whereby you find you cannot enjoy living! As with everything in life, it is best if we have balance.

What I like about being organised is the visual part but also I know where things live in my house. It is always better to have a home for everything in your home than the pile system. However, do not mention a word to anyone that untidy people are often the most creative. That’s why in a little corner of my home, such as my office, I allow untidy spaces!  I think back to some of my lecturer’s at University whom had piles and piles of papers and books in their office. As you can tell I am not against a little mess here and there or hiding in a draw. But I have found that being organised is good for my mental health. It keeps me feeling positive about life and my surroundings. I like the space I live in and I am able to enjoy it without looking at too many unfinished tasks or a messy room.

On investigating the subject I discovered that there are definitely great benefits in having an organised life. Have a read of what I found, it could be life changing! Even better, read about the benefits of getting organised whilst enjoying photos of Queens Park Botanic Gardens, Toowoomba. It is September and it is Carnival of Flowers in Toowoomba – the Garden City. The parks and gardens are looking at their very best.

Being organised is a de-stressor. It is like taking a walk in the park.

People who plan and prepare have less stress in their life and can enjoy the world around them. It also gives you more time for the things you love to do.

People who are organised are punctual. They have respect for others and show this respect by turning up on time. These people have time to smell the flowers.

People who are organised are more confident and focussed. They know that they can set task for themselves and get it done. You can’t plant a garden in a day but if you do a little work every day eventually you will have a beautiful garden.

People who are organised are good decision-makers. They have a “do it now attitude”. They get things done and then can and enjoy walking in the outdoors.

 If you are organised in your home and work life it creates a sense of calm and satisfaction. It takes effort to be organised but then you gain a sense of achievement and satisfaction.

I continue to work on being organised in my life but allow a little messy space now and then – just to let the creative side have its way!

Enjoying green space in our neighbourhood's is good for our health - it is certainly good for mine!
Enjoying the green space of parks and gardens is relaxing and a healthy past-time.

As you can see being organised is a real life changer – better organised, better person, better life!
