Thoughts on Relaxation and Organization

Did you know that how relaxed you are is directly connected to how organized you are in your daily life? The pressure to have every item, activity and area in our lives and spaces completely organized means we spend considerable amounts of time and energy trying to stay ahead of the organizing curve yet we find ourselves falling behind as we drown in more and more stuff that clutters our minds, homes, offices, cars and bags. Relaxation comes from choosing what we can control and what is important to us and letting go of what is beyond our control and what holds little importance to us. We can create and maintain personalized systems of organization for the items , acitivites and areas that matter most to us. We are most relaxed when we can accept the fact that the pursuit of perfection is both unrealistic and stressful.

Relaxation comes when we surrender to the notion that we cannot maintain every item, activity and area in a complete state of organization at all times so instead we will choose to organize those items and activities that are important to us and the areas where we like to relax, feel comfortable and spend most of our time. Before you organize anything, take an inventory of what you have right now and only purchase every day necessities until you know what is in your possession. When you do decide to purchase a new item, commit to give or throw away two or more of the same item that you no longer use.

Relaxation comes from the clarity, certainty and connection of completing an inventory. When you are relaxed, you can decide without emotion, passion or attachment, what to keep and what to give or throw away. The time and effort is definitely worth the comfort , relaxation and spaciousness. You can relax when you know, like and use what you’ve got and when you have a place to store, display and enjoy your possessions. Relaxation comes from having the space to be comfortable and being comfortable in the space. It’s wanting what you have not having what you want. It’s feeling like you have it all.
