How To Break 5 Habits Of Unorganized People
This is not about beating you until you give up your bad habits, but I want to show how some bad habits can make you unorganized.
However, it is possible to break habits of unorganized people.
You can’t expect to change overnight, it is a slow process but if you work on it daily you will notice a difference in the skills that will help you become more organized.
It isn’t an easy process and sometimes things can happen that are beyond your own control, however, it is important to work through these and find ways to become more organized in your daily life.
5 Actions Of Unorganized People
These can take away the control we feel! Some are difficult to deal with, but what is important to remember is that it is possible to take back control! Try to banish those habits that make our lives more difficult.
A Life Changing Event
A life event can change a person and how they deal with a situation, it could be the birth of a child, an episode of depression or even the death of a loved one.
This can and will have an effect on the way they manage with different situations. It is important to work through the feelings, problems, and life changing events, making changes each day until you are able to take back control of your home and life!
It might take weeks or months, but taking one day at a time will help you focus on the tasks that you need to do and to help you put systems in place that will help you organize your life.
Rebelling Against The System
Rebelling against a system, often this happens when a person surrounded by organization and order and wants to find a way to rebel; they do everything in their power to seem unorganized.
This is perhaps the most difficult one to deal with, the person has to feel that they want to change, that they want to live a more organized life. Without the person, wanting to put the effort in, nothing will change. It could be a phase, a way to express themselves, but without the desire to change, it is difficult but not impossible.
Sometimes, the rebel takes over and the idea to become organized is not something you are able to deal with alone. This might need outside help to help to take back control. But sometimes patients and understanding will help to resolve the issues too!
Things That Can Help
- Sink Reflections by The Flylady was amazing when I was struggling with depression!
- Finding the perfect planner that fits your needs!
- Creating a command center to organize your family!
Over Committing Yourself
Over-committing is easy to do! If this is something that you really struggle with learning to say no can lead to someone who is constantly chasing their tail, they just have too much to do.
The simple way to solve this is to learn to say no, it is one of the most difficult things to do and yet if you take on too much you don’t accomplish anything and often it is your family that suffers the most.
Look at what time you have available and the things you need to do, if you want a life you have to learn to say ‘no’ to things that you can’t possibly fit into your day.
Peer Pressure Creates Disorganized People
Social and peer pressure plays an important part in the lives of unorganized people.
We’re bombarded with advertisements and ways to buy more goods than we could want; this leads to clutter in our homes, we just don’t know what to do with all the stuff and it can make our homes cluttered and it is then impossible to find anything that you might want or need.
The solution to this unorganized problem is stop being influenced by items you don’t need, want or can afford.
Try creating a budget and avoid the situations where you spend money on items that you don’t need.
Unorganized habits form when we have too many items in our homes and we don’t throw away or repurpose the items that we already own.
You Don’t Know How To Organize Your Life
You live a life in chaos because you just don’t know what to do or how. If no one has ever explained how to organize your life and your home, how will you ever move forward into an organized life?
You need to learn what it means to organize your home and your life. Taking it one day at a time and planning and moving forward in life towards your goals and dreams is just the start of taking control and bringing order to your life!
Breaking habits of unorganized people is difficult if they are unsure what an organized life is and what it means to have your items put away and, a schedule for all of your appointments. If no one has ever taken the time to show them how!
