January is National Get Organized month, along with trying not to ruin your resolutions. Here’s why getting organized first will help you make your New Years resolutions a success!
Getting organized first will help you…
Improve quality of sleep:
According to the Huffington Post, unnecessary items in your bedroom can add stress even if you don’t realize it, therefore affecting your sleep. Consider moving these items out of your room. While decluttering is highly recommended on a regular basis, making your bed each morning will also help create an organized atmosphere training your body to find rest after a long days work!
Have more energy:
If you’re feeling a little slump in your day and having trouble getting past it, try organizing your work area. Sort the papers that have been piling up, file your mail, throw away the trash around your work area and tidy up the clutter weighing you down. Taking this time to get organized can help you work more energetically for the rest of the day, according to WebMD.
Choose healthier foods to eat:
People who work in a neat space are two times as likely to pick an apple to eat versus a chocolate bar when compared to those who were working in an organized, messy work space, according to a study by Psychological Science. Feeling more in control of your surroundings trickles over to the food you eat!
Increase happiness and relaxation:
People with a cluttered home and multiple unfinished projects, have been found to be more depressed, fatigued and have higher cortisol levels than those who feel their home is a place of order and rest according to a study conducted from Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin. Maintaining an organized home increases happiness and relaxation.
Encourage physical fitness:
A Swedish study found people who physically did housework, organizing and DIY projects have approximately a 30% lower risk of a heart attack or stroke versus those who do less labor.
