Have you ever asked yourself, “Why am I disorganised?”. Unfortunately, if we’re disorganised, it can be tough to reach our goals. Because it can mean our productivity decreases. We can feel overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed about this. It can also impact our physical and mental health. Consequently, these stresses can cause mental fatigue, headaches and poor sleep.
Is being organised a spectrum?
Let’s think about organisation as a spectrum? On one side we have perfectionism and on the other side chaos. Obviously, it’s not ideal to be at far end of either side. We want to be in the middle. Our habits can be difficult to change though. So how do we get nearer to the middle?
