My home office is one of my favorite (and most important) rooms in my home. It’s where I do things I love like gather inspiration, put together decorating plans, and write blog posts. It’s also where I do chores like bills, filing, business management, etc. Depending on your personal interests and responsibilities, your home office is command central, the place where you get things done.
Keeping your home office organized makes anything you do in there so much easier. Not only do I feel a lot more inspired when my office is organized, but I can also get the stuff done I don’t enjoy doing (I’m looking at you, bills) a lot quicker, more efficiently, and with less headache. A clean office cultivates a clear mind.
“We all have the same 24 hours in a day. It’s what we do with them that makes the difference.”
I heard this saying many years ago, though I can’t recall from whom I first heard it. It’s always been one of my favorites. It reminds me that, while I don’t have control over everything that happens in my day, I can make better use of the control I do have by managing my time better.
Time management is one of the secrets to success for many of the world’s most successful people. Chances are, though, they weren’t simply born with amazing time management skills. It is something we learn over time through trial and error. Everyone’s needs are different. Lots of variables come into play, including your own unique process. You have to find your own sweet spot with it, but once you do, you’ll find that your productivity will vastly improve and those 24 hours will seem a little bit longer. (In a good way!)
One of the best feelings in the world is when you get your living space clean and organized. Personally, I always feel a bit stressed when things are a mess. There is such a sense of relief and contentment that comes when things are in order my home, so I have a system of daily routines that help me stay on top of this.
Getting organized is one of the best things you can do to not only make your home look better, but also to make it feel better to be in. That’s why I love to share organizing tips because it makes such a huge difference in your home’s environment. However, here’s something important to keep in mind:
The first step to making your home more beautiful and comfortable is to get everything organized. Now, I know what you might be thinking ─ but can’t I just get to the part where I make it all pretty? Do I HAVE to deal with the headache of organizing everything first?
If this sounds like you and organizing just isn’t your thing, you aren’t alone. For most people, this is usually their least favorite part of the process. It seems like a big headache they just don’t have the time nor the patience for. It can even get in the way of them actually reaching the decorating part because they’re so uninterested in “dealing with” the organizing part that they give up on it altogether.
The word “declutter” has been known to conjure dread in the hearts of many. Let’s face it: it requires all sorts of unappealing things, like forcing us to decide if we really need that old lamp from college that we have an inexplicable sentimental attachment to or those boots we once loved but have sadly seen better days.
It makes us take time out of our already busy day.
And the sheer amount of stuff you have to go through…
There is just so MUCH of it!!!
Unless you are someone who just naturally enjoys the process of decluttering and organizing (I am one of those odd people), decluttering your home is something you’ve probably been avoiding for a long time because the idea of doing it is, frankly, overwhelming and unenjoyable to think about.
