Have an easier life by getting organized

You might not think that it’s a big deal to occasionally have a little bit of clutter here and there. But it is. Clutter is a sign that you are unorganized and most importantly, it robs you of having an easier life. Living with clutter is a habit you’ve created just like justifying or making excuses that you are too busy.

Doesn’t Everyone Have Clutter?

And here is one of life’s great mysteries. Have you ever noticed that the same family and friends that seem to be the most productive and they always have time to spare for you, are the ones who are the tidiest?

If that’s not you, it may feel like you never have the time to tidy up. Especially if you are also picking up after family members, too. By the time you realize that guests are coming over and your house is a hot mess, it’s so overwhelming that everything gets dumped in a closet. Or is that just me?

Clutter has a way of sneaking up on you. Slowly it accumulates in corners of rooms and on top of flat surfaces. Those piles of clutter can be really stressful. It can really affect your quality of life in a negative way.

 Can you relate?

But there is hope. The simple solution to being disorganized? Get organized! I can hear you saying it now, “If it were that easy, I would have done it already!”

I didn’t say the solution was easy. But if you make an effort to take control of the clutter you can cut down on the stress and feel more together. This happens by creating better habits for you and your family.

Being organized isn’t about getting rid of everything you own or trying to become a different person, it’s about living the way you want to live, but better


Tips to an Easier Life

  • Home decluttering

A messy house can create a big energy drain on everyone. Finding a home for everything and getting rid of items you no longer use is important. There is an amazing book that has helped thousands of people declutter their homes and regain order. It is the original book about decluttering and clearly, it is still the best. If you are interested in checking it out, it’s called Declutter Fast – How To Get Your Home in Order Almost Immediately!

  • You can say “NO”

One of the keys to getting organized is to set boundaries. These can be for yourself and others. Knowing that you have limits on your time, commitments, and even the stuff around you can help give you an easier life. You don’t have to have “yes” as an auto-response to every request that comes your way. Just letting someone know that you will think about it and get back to them is an okay answer, too. That way, if you are the type of person who has a hard time saying “no”. This helps by letting them down more gently. And it also gives you time to make sure that the request fits in with your priorities and your schedule.

  • Plan ahead

Start thinking about your day before it even arrives. Plan out scheduled activities and make a list of what you need to get done. Taking a few minutes at the end of each day to look forward to tomorrow will help you feel more in control and a lot more relaxed. You can really see an easier life forming when you have a plan in place.

  • Be proactive

Knowing the things that cause you to stress out (your stressors) can really help you be more organized and create that easier life you are looking for. Because if you can identify those stressors you can come up with a plan to deal with them as they arise. That way you are not caught off guard and end up stressed out. And this is a great way to keep “Mama Bear” from making an appearance
