We know you're busy, but taking a little time to tidy up is well worth the investment. According to a study conducted by a Boston marketing firm, the average American burns 55 minutes a day searching for lost items. That’s almost 14 days a year! Save time, stress less, and maintain your sanity with this simple tip from Liz Neporent, a health and fitness expert and co-author of the Thin in 10 Weight Loss Plan: Leave everything better than when you found it. Squeezing in small 60-second-or-less shots of extra organization can help you free up more time in your day for other healthy habits and reduce anxiety.
Your action plan: Take an extra 30-60 seconds to tackle a small organizational task in the moment: Organize the silverware drawer as you empty out the dishwasher, toss unmatched or ragged socks when putting away laundry, or recycle junk mail as soon as it arrives.
