It’s a brand new year and a chance to start fresh for 2018. It has been said that having a neat and well organized home can improve our mood and outlook because what we see every day has an impact on us psychologically. Could staring at that clutter every day be keeping you in a place where you’re not motivated to accomplish your goals? Wanna make a pact? Let’s get organized!
A New Year is a Great Time for Change
For some reason we can wrap our minds around change easier when it occurs at a special time or place. These ‘bookends’ can stretch and motivate us to make the most of things. This may be why New Years is famous for spurring on positive change! Getting more organized is an area where most people can improve and January is a great time to do it. There are holiday decorations to put away and with cold weather, there’s more time indoors to spend on organizing and tackling that clutter. You can do this!
Getting Started is the Hardest Part
Like most anything, the hardest part in getting organized can be getting started. If it helps, think of it as a marathon rather than a sprint. Get the whole family involved and set goals like completing a room each week or every two weeks. Get supplies like boxes, tape, and labels and do it right. Box up things you want to keep but don’t use often. Inventory your boxes and label them nicely. You can make a pile of items you’d like to sell and make another pile for recycling. Many people get storage for seasonal items and things they don’t have space for at home – search findlocalstorage.com to find a facility near you.
Getting more organized is a positive step that can spill over into other areas of our lives. We hope 2018 is an amazing year that sees you accomplishing all of your goals!
