Doing all the things
Most of us know that a more organized life is a healthier life, yes? Just the feelings of satisfaction alone, reduced anxiety… Gabriel Bernstein says, “Getting organized is a sign of self-respect…”
Here’s hoping that in addition to organizing your own life, you are also striving to organize your committee work, the community group, the refugee support group, the hockey team executive, the parent advisory group!
My. How we make our lives full eh?
Being organized isn’t just all work though. Care about and for yourself! I found the following suggestions at kimmelpsychology.com.
Decide whether it is better to have structured blocks of time or a more general attitude of get it done today.
Set a daily schedule for waking, eating, working, fun activities, and sleep.
Keep active and exercise several times a week.
Set realistic goals that can be accomplished.
Have a positive attitude and don’t get stuck on things you can’t control.
Give yourself a reward when a task is accomplished.
When decluttering your home, choose three piles: keep, give away, and not sure, which gets looked at again in 3 to 6 months.
Seek professional help if you are unable to structure yourself and feel stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed. Yes!
