Why January and not some other month of the year? Well, first, it’s the start of the year, so getting organized in January sets you up to create new organization habits and nurture them throughout the year. Also, the National Association of Productivity & Organization Professionals (NAPO) has declared January National Get Organized Month. As proud member of this organization, I’m pleased to provide you with my best blogs about organizing your time, digital space, and physical space to help you start this year off right.
Today’s society is fast paces and high stress. It often feels like there’s too much to do, too little time to do it in, and that whatever needs doing will never get done. The truth is, with proper time management strategies you can be more productive, less stressed, and have time to do all the things that really matter.
If you’re like most of us, you spend countless hours in front of digital devices. Your computer, laptop, smartphone, etc. have almost become an extension of your living and working spaces. When they’re disorganized, it adds to your stress, even if you don’t realize it. Fortunately, wrangling it back into submission just take a little time (see above to get a hold on that).
You’ve probably experienced this. You walk into your home or a specific room and feel stressed. Maybe you’re not sure why at first, but as you look around you realize it’s just a mess. There’s a pile of dishes in the sink and clutter piling up on tables. The closets are exploding and you can’t find your favorite shirt. Ugh! Now is the time to take your space back and enjoy living and working in it again.
With some small changes, you can make 2018 your most productive year yet! It’s all about getting organized and January is the perfect time to do it!
