I came across this blog post today and it spoke to me because I recently noticed that if I take my blood pressure after doing a bit of organizing, I have the best blood pressure ever (can you believe it). So then sometimes, for instance, I make time to just take some of my mugs with pens and mechanical pencils, clean them and test them to see if they still work, and wipe the dust from the mugs; or sort through various to-do papers; or photograph pages from magazines I throw away, so that I have these pages for future reference. All these activities give me an incredible sense of calm and relaxation. I don’t know about people who are chronically disorganized, but tidying things up brings me relief and a sense of well-being, which is why I resonated with this article. The author breaks down the benefits of getting more organized in a nice way, while also providing very useful tips.
