Find out the key signs you need to start organising the different aspects if your life, with tips on what to do if you do need to get more organised.
Are there some major signs that you need to organise your home, your personal schedule, your work, or just your life in general? It may well be that there are signs that you haven’t noticed, but signs that will seem really clear once you focus in on this side of your life. Perhaps you have brushed clear signs you need to get organised aside, because you assume it is just part of life.
These 6 signs that you need to get organised, will help you begin to identify if you need to make a change asap:
1.You Miss A Work Meeting
Everyone misses a work meeting for a genuine reason every now and again. However, if you have slept in, have simply forgotten, or you have not allowed yourself enough time for the meeting, then that is a clear sign that your current scheduling doesn’t work.
2. You Have Areas Of Items You Own That You Couldn’t List
Obviously nobody could list everything they own off the top of their head. However, if there are areas of your home, garage or self storage unit you know contain items that have not seen the light of day for years, it is a clear sign you have areas of your home that need decluttering, and organising.
3. You Forget Where You Have Put Things
If you go to get your keys or wallet in the morning and forget where they are, most days, this can suggest you are disorganised. Most people will place their belongings when they get in as part of a routine, because everything ‘has a place’. If your method of setting things down when you get in is more haphazard, it can suggest you have a need for reorganising.
4. You Don’t Make Plans With Friends And Family
It isn’t that you don’t want to see them, it is just that so many different things seem to be happening, you never have the time to make plans. This can be a sign you need to sort out your scheduling in order to rejuvenate your personal life again.
5. You Feel Overwhelmed
When your home, your work and personal life and everything else going on just seems to be a big old mess, it is natural to feel overwhelmed. Needing order and calm, is completely normal and often we need to declutter our home and get our schedule in order, so that our mind can feel clearer and calmer too.
6. You’ve No Escape
Seeing friends is an escape, going to the gym is an escape, or special spaces in the house can be an escape. Often a cluttered home and disorganised life can mean you feel you have no escape, which can become suffocating, and is a real sign that you need to get things in order.
You Can Get Organised
If you identify with the signs above, then it could be time to get organised. All you have to do, is force yourself to put time aside to make an organisational plan. Give yourself a weekend to set your schedule right, to make plans for decluttering bit by bit, and to give yourself permission to work on this side of yourself. If tackling it all in one go is too much, consider changing things bit by bit in manageable chunks. One day you could declutter your self storage unit. Another day, you could look at organising seeing family and friends. The very fact you’re addressing the problem and actively seeking change is the first step to an organised life, that you’ll be enjoying before you know it.
