There's probably nothing much worse for our wellbeing than feeling disorganised. It can leave us feeling out of control or chaotic. We can struggle to keep up with things. We can forget things and we can feel overwhelmed.

We all have our own tolerances for the degree of organisation in our lives. For some of us we need our homes and workplaces to be very neat and tidy in order to feel comfortable. Others are less concerned about this but need to have a routine that works for them.Some people have particular areas of their lives or homes that need to be more organised than other areas.

We can feel like our lives are taking on a life of their own when we are not as organised as we need to be. Sometimes things can get a bit out of control because there are so many demands and stresses on us. This may be a temporary situation and we know that we just need to get through this period and we will be able to get ourselves organised again.

Sometimes we are in new or changing relationships with partners, friends or family members. Our ability to organise ourselves will be affected by their needs and interests.We may find ourselves being more or less organised in response to them. We may be positively or negatively influenced by their level of organisation or their expectations.

We know that when we feel that we have no or little control over our lives our physical and mental health can be affected. There may be some areas of our lives that we can't have total control over at the moment. By getting whatever areas of our lives organised that we possibly can we may be able to feel a sense of control or self efficacy. A feeling that we can do some things, that we are capable and are able to make some decisions for ourselves.

We may find that at different times in our lives our need to organise various aspects of our lives will vary. When we are on our own we may be very organised, our life can be ordered because we only have to worry about ourselves. When we have children we may find that our efforts go into caring for them and less into focusing on organising areas of our lives that don't seem to matter so much any more.

There's not just one way to be organised. It's a very personal thing just how much organisation we need and what things need to be organised. It can be one area that we can keep working on though to help us care for ourselves.
