The Positive Effects of Organized Living on the Body

The Positive Effects of Organized Living on the Body

It is easy to get caught up in what I would call the “tidings” of organizing. For example, things like, the most on-trend organizational solutions, the best life-hacks, and must-have productivity tools. These are all things that help deliver the result of an organized space or productivity practice. But what I’m wondering about in today’s post is: what is going on in the brain and body as it relates to living an organized life.

There are many commonly understood and accepted positive health benefits of living a more organized life. If there weren’t, the organizing industry wouldn’t have its own National Accreditation Industry (The National Association of Professional Organizers) and The Container Store wouldn’t have net sales of $890 million for 2018.

Just Google “health benefits of getting organized” and you get pages of results listing numerous sources giving information about how having your sh*t more together can:

  • save you time

  • save you money

  • get better sleep

  • help you prioritize
