Why Should We Organize?

Written By Melanie McConnell

Let’s go back to the simple question- “why should we organize?” I’ve gotten asked that question many times. Although the answer may be different for different people, I know from working with my clients that one of the biggest reasons for most people is that organizing their space literally changes their lives. Organizing is SO much more than just surface level. The mental change that it brings is super important. It brings me so much joy to hear about how I could help take away so much stress and overwhelm from my clients and how it has changed their lives for the better!


Scientists have studied the effect that clutter can have on mood and self-esteem. Having a

cluttered space often leads to anxiety, stress, and overwhelm. In turn- anxiety, stress, and overwhelm can often lead to other health issues and negative emotions. We don’t want that for you this year or ever!




When you’re in an organized space, your brain doesn’t have to work as hard. It leaves you feeling calm, energized, motivated, and focused. Decluttering can also open the door to taking better care of other aspects of your life (healthy eating, exercising, mental health...etc.). It’s a win-win all around!


My most important encouragement for you is to remember that Progress > Perfection. Celebrate your progress, even if it’s small. Nobody is going to be 100% perfect, 100% of the time. Give yourself grace and keep on being your wonderful self.
