The Benefits of Organising

When you surround yourself with possessions that spark joy you’ll create a home and a life that you love – Marie Kondo


When you surround yourself in clutter you are actually creating stress.  It drains your energy and makes you feel overwhelmed and helpless, leading to embarrassment, anxiety and depression.  It makes it difficult to relax and unwind with mountains of things ‘to do’.

It can affect all aspects of your life, not just the immediately impacted environment.  It can affect your job, relationship, behaviour as well as your body and mind.  The world is becoming more automated and convenient, but yet we are all suffering with just too much stuff.

Organising your environment is SO much more than tidying.  It gives you an opportunity to ‘reset’ yourself.  It allows you to take back control and do all of those things you keep meaning to do but never have the time.  It is an opportunity to have a relaxing cup of tea in the morning without having to frantically search your whole house for your keys before you can leave for work.

It is about surrounding yourself with only things that spark joy, those items that you completely love and every time you look at you feel happiness.  Imagine having the time and energy to pursue new hobbies, or spend some valuable time with your family without thinking about the growing ‘to do’ list.

Here are some of the benefits you will achieve through gaining control of your life

  • More time to do the things that spark joy – spend time with family, exercise, cooking or doing the hobbies you always dreamed of – you won’t be spending time organising and searching for things!
  • Surround yourself in things that you love – which will spread to all aspects of your life.  It will change the way you think about and approach life – you will clearly see what you need and what you love
  • Feel happier and more in control – you will no longer be surrounded by all that clutter and the growing ‘to do’ list
