Messy matters, especially if your life circumstances are in disarray. There is something about order that helps settle down racing thoughts and emotional clutter. Decisions are easier. It also makes life-function run smoother. When things are orderly we can receive unexpected guests without embarrassment and we are prepared for spontaneous activities without harried or guilty reactions.
Take 15 minutes and tackle one messy place in your surrounding. It might be your desk, your nightstand, your kitchen counters, your closet, your purse, etc. Later do it again in another congested area. By the end of the day your measurable improvements will make you feel way better than a hot fudge sundae with whipping cream.
Tidy takes the tangle out of your brains so you can process important matters.
