Relax Already: Get organized

If you find that you’re constantly in a state of chaos and anxiety, it’s time for a change. Here’s something you can try to get the stress out and get your spirits up.

Get organized. De-stressing your thoughts might be as simple as de-cluttering your space.

  • Take some time to clear off your desk and organize your papers and supplies.
  • Clean out that closet or pantry you’ve been meaning to get to.
  • Put away that basket of laundry that’s been sitting on the floor for over a week.
  • Deal with the pile of mail that's been accumulating.
  • Cleaning in itself is stress relieving. Once your space is set, your mind will feel more relaxed and ready to tackle other issues.

    Fit's Tips: All of your stuff needs a home. Shop around for some crates, hooks, boxes, and shelves so that you have a place to put all of your things. Try to be good about putting things away when you're done (just like you learned in Kindergarten). Then your space won't feel so cluttered, and neither will you.
