Yes, today is the day to take some time to get yourself organized! Every year April 26 is set aside for us to declutter or clean our living space.
Research has shown that cleaner, more organized spaces can give us mental clarity and happiness. As we age, mental clarity can help with a good quality of life.
Do you have lots of notes around and do you still need them? Are you saving old papers that have outlasted their use? Are there clothes that need to be put away or donated? Do you see any areas that could use organizing?
When we get older there can be a lot of “things” we accumulate. It can be overwhelming to think about getting organized and hard to think about throwing things away.
Private Home Health Care believes that it is important to live a good quality of life and to feel productive. If it’s too much to do alone, reach out to a family member or friend to help you and take your time. You don’t have to try and get organized all in one day. A little at a time can go a long way to helping you feel productive and restful.
