When People keep their lives in balance, their anxiety level tends to be lower. Staying in balance means that the way you choose to spend your time and energy is a healthy mix of leisure and responsibilities.
Keeping your environment in order can help you to find things that you need more easily and quickly. That can help to keep your anxiety level lower.
Go to any store near you. Each store has many products. If they were not organized by category, things would be a mess and it would be hard to find what you were looking for.
Sit in the doorway of your bedroom and look around you. You have a lot of belongings in your bedroom. When things are not organised by category, it can be a mess and hard to find what you are looking for.
1.Describe a time when being unorganized caused you to feel anxious.
2.What changes could you make so that would not happen again?
3.In your room which categories are the most important for you to keep organized and why?
4.Describe other places that you need to be organized and tell why?
5.One of the tricks to being organized is staying organized. Organizing your belongings once is just the beginning. Then you have to learn to keep them organized. Imagine you just finished organizing your room on Sunday night. On Monday afternoon, your mom gave you your clean laundry to put away, you brought 2 finished art projects and 3 homework assignments home from school, and you had to dump your backpack out on your floor to find your lab partner’s phone number. Describe what you would have to do and when you would have to do it to keep your room organized?
