Why Organizing for health? Let me explain. Today I want to share with you how I have set up a few desk supplies. Now I love to have everything in nice handy compartments on my desk, but I purposely do not have everything I need close by.
Why, you ask?
Well, while I want to have many things within arms-reach, I purposely keep some supplies across the room. I do this because I spend a lot of time sitting at work during the day and again when I on my computer at home (we are talking hours here) and I am sure many of you can relate.
Did you know that many recent studies have shown that people who are more sedentary for longer periods of time have a higher risk of death? This is serious stuff. (If you want to read more about such study, click here.)
So today I encourage you to place some items away from your work area at home or at work so that it forces you to get up and move around. Think about what items you might be able to move to a location across the room or if at home, in a different room. I know it may sound silly and maybe a little inefficient, but by doing this, you will not have to think about it, and it will benefit your health. What you might be losing in a little productivity, just might lengthen your lifespan.
So that being said, what items have you placed across the room? I care about each and every one of you and hope that you will organize for a healthy life!
