The key to a healthy mind & body lies in being organised (and science can back it up)

Looking to be a better version of yourself in 2023? If you only get one thing right this year, let it be getting organised.

Want to get healthy? Get organised

Riddle me this: It uplifts your mood, reduces stress, makes you more productive, and ultimately allows you to end each day feeling motivated and fulfilled…what is it?

If you guessed “coffee”, you are probably not alone. You are, however, wrong…The answer is organisation.

Intrigued? Read on…

An unexpected saboteur

If you’re anything like anyone, you’ll be familiar with the typical scenario: Messy house, messy office, messy car, and an endless list of to-dos that never get done (to don’ts?).

It’s a big, fat, frustrating hot mess. And it messes with your health – big time.

Yip, you read it. It may sound far-fetched, but scientific studies have found that there is a direct correlation between being organised, and feelings of calmness and wellbeing. Conversely, when your affairs are in disarray – at home or at work – your cortisol (the stress hormone we spend our days trying to limit) levels increase.

As if our New Year Resolutions didn’t already have enough saboteurs waiting in the wings for their chance to dash our valiant efforts (pizza, delicious pastries, chocolate – yes, you), now we have to worry about this unforeseen culprit.

Or do we?

The digital defeater

Built to sort and secure your messy myriad of documents, and streamline workflows, SigniFlow’s Portfolios feature allows you to organise your life, work faster and more methodically, and to stress less about missing or misplaced document assets.

Portfolios is a secure, online document portal that allows you to group documents and share them,  securely with anyone. Portfolios digitises and organises all your files and documents (and any relevant supporting documents) – this applies to all your documents, whether signed approved, uploaded or attached to the process flow.

It’s like your own instantly accessible high-security safe, complete with neat sections and search tabs – self-hosted, or in our cloud.

A pillow of peace of mind. 😇

So now you know there are tools out there capable of taking the “dis” out of “disorganised”, we thought we’d indulge in a little bonus “New Year New Me” rhetoric…

Four surprising health benefits of being organised

1. Less stress, less flesh

Having a looming list of things to do constantly hanging over your head, different documents and files scattered all over the place in no particular order, and having no clear direction just breeds stress. Big stress. And stress, strangely and cruelly enough, can lead to weight gain.

2. You snooze, you win

Studies have also shown that people who sleep in a cluttered space take longer to fall asleep and have lower quality sleep than those who slumber in orderly surrounds. And we’ve all heard the doctors’ orders around “getting a good night’s sleep” – lest you find yourself taken by obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, and all that doom and gloom.

3. 2020ME, indeed

Ah, the ever elusive “Me Time”. In today’s hyper-charged and super-digital world, most of us neglect this little nugget of sanity, because it’s so easy to skip over. Having your ducks in a row, and your mind at ease, allows you to take time for yourself, and to get past page two of the health journal you’ve been promising to stick to for years, or to make that phone call to Mom that will take a weight (much of it made up of guilt trips) off your shoulders.

4. Work horse – without the heavy labour

And last, but by no means least, being organised helps you to be more productive, efficient and professional at work. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – productive people are happy, fulfilled, motivated and inspired people…All of which = success.
