Hi Zen Organizers,
I don’t know about you, but generally, when I talk to family, friends, or acquaintances about some of the organizational methods I have, their reaction is often judgmental. They tell me that these methods seem very rigid and stressful and that they probably take more time to implement than they save in the end.
However, I totally disagree with them because being organized actually allows you to be less stressed, more flexible, and save tons of time.
Let’s take meal planning, for example. Yes, you do need to allocate some time in your busy schedule to plan your meals for the next week. But these 15 minutes you take now to plan next week’s meal allow you to write down a very detailed grocery list, which, in turn, saves you a lot of time – not to mention money – at the grocery store. The meal plan also frees the mental load and stress of having to think 2 to 3 times a day about what you’ll eat for your next meal. It might not seem like much, but when you consider that most people eat 21 meals per day, excluding snacks (which you can also plan in your meal plan), that saves a lot of time and energy that you could use on other more meaningful tasks, goals, projects, etc.
I see organization as a means to be more zen, more relaxed, hence the name “Zenly Organized.”
Therefore, I hope the various tips, tools, resources, and reflections on this blog will help you be Zen Organizers as well!
