Why Is It So Hard To Get Organized?

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences a person can go through. The grieving process can be overwhelming, and it can be hard to focus on anything else. This includes the task of getting organized, which can seem almost impossible in the midst of grief.

Over the next couple of weeks, we’re going to tackle all things organizing!

Grief can manifest in many different ways, including feelings of sadness, anger, and confusion. These emotions can make it difficult to concentrate on anything, let alone the task of organizing your home or workspace. Additionally, grief can cause physical symptoms like exhaustion, which can make it even harder to find the energy to tackle organizational tasks.

Another reason why it’s hard to get organized while grieving is that the task itself can feel overwhelming. Organizing often requires making decisions about what to keep, what to throw away, and where to put things. These decisions can be especially difficult when you’re grieving, as you may feel like you don’t have the emotional bandwidth to deal with them.

It’s important to give yourself time and space to grieve, and to not put too much pressure on yourself to get organized right away. One approach is to start with small organizational tasks, such as organizing a single drawer or closet. This can help you feel a sense of accomplishment and control, which can be healing during the grieving process.

If you’re struggling to get organized while grieving, it may be helpful to seek support from a grief counselor or therapist. They can provide guidance and support as you navigate the complexities of grief, and can help you develop a plan for organizing your home or workspace that works for you. Remember, there is no timeline for grief, and it’s okay to take the time you need to heal and move forward.

And as always, remember, you can do this and I’m here to help.
