A Comment on Tidyness

I am not a tidy person. At the moment you cannot see the floor of my bedroom. But I have the want and the need to be tidy (the only reason my room is SO bad at the moment is that I haven't been able to do much at all in the past week due to M.E.). So I end up being a very organised person but clearly, not a tidy person. I find that this usually works...

Until I am stressed. Take today for example: I was trying to print and organise all my assessment work but thanks to the mess in my room I was getting increasingly agitated especially as I had to climb over every thing whenever I needed to get to the printer. And then, just to top it off, all the plastic folders fell out all over the floor, on top of the mess and I just wanted to scream. All I can say is I'm thankful that at least I'm organised or I think I may have gone into meltdown. So just be aware that the state of your surroundings can have an impact on your life - mess goes hand in hand with stress; though I definitely wouldn't say that all stress will go away if you tidy, but tidying and cleaning can be a good stress-buster. So I'm planning on having a thorough tidying this week, now that assessments are out of the way - at least for now.

I can never work well if my work environment is messy. It's funny how our settings can affect us in that way

I used to be so scattered, but very organized. Nobody could touch anything b/c it all had a certain place. Now, I think I'm tidy and organized...which is nice.I usually won't do what I need to do unless I can clean a little first.
