When thinking about self-care, organizing may not be the first thing that comes to mind. Self-care is about taking a walk, making nutritious meals, and reading good books. It may sound a little strange, but being organized is an essential part of self-care.

Self-care is about acting to protect and promote health and psychophysical well-being. I discovered this concept when I practiced self-care; I felt much better and uplifted. But what's here isn't just behavior that feels good at the moment. It also takes time for your future self to thank you.

It involves making changes that require some work, such as creating a new system or developing a new habit which brought dramatic changes in my life. Self-care is about doing good things for your physical and mental health, making you feel calm, focused, and helps control your life. I found to get control of things by organizing everything.

Organizing my home was very beneficial and vital for my mental health as I managed a lot of time for my self-care routines. Here are some ways being organized helps with your self-care.

Improved my social life

Being unorganized made me miss out on social interaction. If I feel embarrassed about the mess, I am unlikely to invite someone or have a party. When I hosted, I used to feel stressed and tried to get rid of it. Sometimes I felt anxious. As I worked to get out of it, I realized that this does not have to happen. As I changed how to organize myself and adapted my cleaning habits according to my taste and wish, I experienced more freedom in my social life. Now I can be the source of the party as well as the participant.

Reduces stress and anxiety

Sometimes after spending a long day at work, I could not relax on returning when I opened the door and realized that a haven had become a war zone when the sofa is covered with clothes, who can relax on it. And moving around the house wasn't an adventure.Studies have shown that disorganized homes cause stress and anxiety in many people, but they are often not recognized as triggers for anxiety or a source of stress. Clutter always offers me more distractions until I manage to get rid of it. Unknowingly, whenever my home was cluttered, my productivity dropped. Consider working in a crowded coffee shop. Think about all the stimuli and noise. Can you concentrate? Probably not. Stress is the same as being surrounded by clutter, at least for your brain. Whenever I feel more pressure or frustration than usual, I always take a look at my home. What does my home look like? My mind will follow!!

Improves my morning

What can be more stressful when you can't find the sweater you want to wear in a cold office. Or one pair of your comfortable work shoes. If I start the day incorrectly, I tend to follow the same trends all day long. Making my day feel longer than it really was and not really being as productive as I should have. In the end, I feel stressed out after a bad day at work. Instead I make sure I maximized my time by organizing my space and changing my typical morning routine cluttered and rushed. When I have time, I have breakfast, enjoy the commute, and look forward to the day.
