In other posts I have consistently wrote about how clutter causes stress, and that is just one way that organization correlates to your health. Chronic stress can wreak havoc on your health and what we are all trying to manage, or should be. Eliminating, or better yet, avoiding clutter build up is a great way to manage stress.
A good time management skillset allows us to be productive which falls into the category of organization. Getting a lot done is productive and the definition of productive according to the Merriam Webster dictionary is, ‘yielding results, benefits, or profits’.
An example of good time management skills that correlates to your health is the time you decide to do yard work. Working in the yard during the hottest part of the day can be detrimental to your health. Scheduling your time during a cooler part of the day such as early morning or evening allows you to get a lot done without negatively effecting your health.
Another example is scheduling your most difficult, or creative tasks or projects during your peak performance time. The outcome will be less productive and potentially stressful when you are not working during this time, and this time will be different for everyone.
As mentioned above, scheduling tasks and projects is an important aspect of organization and productivity, and consequently your health. Not keeping household appliances and vehicles properly maintained can cause hazardous conditions and tragic outcomes for you and your family.
Many people feel like they don’t have the time nor the resources to get organized. If that rings true for you, I encourage you to think again to find a way. Being proactive is a great way to get ahead of potential issues. Getting organized should be at the top of your list of priorities since it correlates to your health.
