In Pursuit of an Organized Life

. . . putting life in order

Mental Health

I’m excited for my new resolution.  I’ve struggled with wanting to improve several areas of my life, but not knowing how to do that without getting overwhelmed.  I found an article ” Understanding Anxiety from a Different Perspective: Treat anxiety from a lifestyle approach”.

It linked all of my goals into one theme—fitness, hobbies, cleaning, family, and stress.  It gave a purpose and a reason behind them.  It also keeps me from obsessing to much about any one area.

I think this is particularly meaning full for my cleaning and organizing goals.  I wanted to have a clean and organized house.  I’ve envied other people that could do it seemingly effortlessly.   It had always seemed like something I had to do and should do and added to my stress and anxiety.

We are currently in the middle of a kitchen remodel.  I am actually enjoying organizing and gradually moving from a state of construction chaos to an organized home.   I’m seeing how the mess is affecting my mental health when I can’t find what I need, lost something, or see clutter sneak back into something I just cleaned.

Hopefully I can continue this energy as I approach the year.   Make meaningful changes without getting to frustrated with my progress or loose momentum.   Here’s to waking up this website and a clean and organized 2018.
