Regardless of your profession, having a professional organizer come into your home can be beneficial. Whether you’re busy with work projects, a stay-at-home parent, or someone who travels often, a professional organizer can help keep your home looking and feeling put together.
When your home feels unorganized, it plays a major role in your mental health. Clutter has been linked to increased stress levels and depression. When you see clutter in your home, it can be difficult to relax your mind knowing there are things out of place. Disorganized homes have also been linked to increased anxiety and makes it difficult to focus.
If you desire a clean space that promotes order and helps with your mental health, hiring a professional organizer can be the perfect solution for you. No more throwing things under the bed or hiding things in a closet. Actually, declutter and organize your home and your life at the same time.
What is a Professional Organizer?
A professional organizer is an expert on how a home should flow for functionality and maintenance. They are also a joy sparker, a peace influencer in your home, and the calm to your chaos.
Professional organizers provide accountability, compassion, and zero judgment. This happens through decluttering, aligning with your goals, and creating functional systems that are easy to maintain.
5 Ways a Professional Organizer Can Help You
If you are wondering, “How can a professional organizer help me?”, then you are in for a treat. The following five ways are just the surface of how an organizer can help you.
The first step in the organizing process is called the extraction process. This is where a professional organizer like myself comes into your home to help you identify items to keep and items to release. As an objective outsider, it is easier for me to make suggestions for what to keep and release because there is no emotional attachment for me. This opens your eyes to areas of your home that may be collecting more clutter than you realize.
There is a difference in cleaning vs. clearing out and organizing. Cleaning focuses on putting things back where they belong and sanitizing along the way. Clearing out involves freeing up space in your home. This helps with the cleaning process because there will be fewer items to have to put away and clean around.
Once the extraction process is complete, then you can move on to figuring out what you want to do with the remaining items.
Establish a System
Now that you know what you are keeping in your home, you can establish a system with a professional organizer to keep things organized and functional in your home. This means setting up a system in your pantry for better use and preventing things from sitting in there that have expired.
This also looks like establishing a flow in the kids’ playroom or in your office. A system is helpful to keep you in a groove so that you don’t find yourself in a cluttered mess again in the near future.
Maybe one of the most difficult parts of the home organization process is establishing boundaries for yourself. This includes reframing your mind to not make unnecessary purchases and keeping your systems in place. It takes time to readjust your mindset. But if you keep your boundaries, it will become like second nature to you in no time.
Boundaries include setting aside time each day to implement your system. Whether that is five minutes cleaning up the living room or five minutes sorting through the pantry each week. Your boundaries also resemble a deal you have made with yourself. This could look like not allowing a new item into your house more than once a month. It could also mean sorting through the physical mail as soon as it crosses the threshold of your home.
A professional organizer can help hold you accountable to your goals in life, starting with your home. You can have every intention to want to make this a successful process, but life happens and there can be things that derail you from your process. This is where a professional organizer can step in to check in on you and see where you might need additional support to reach your goals.
A professional organizer is a friend who wants the best for you and who wants to see you improve your life through home organization.
There may be parts of your home that you believe are functioning well until a professional organizer steps in to show you how you can make things flow even better. An organizer’s job includes educating you on ways that you can improve your current living and transform it into a way that works even better for your lifestyle.
