Clutter can be overwhelming, and there is evidence that lots of mess can take away your ability to focus. That is why we recommend that you make an effort to keep your desk and workspace as clean as possible.
Let’s face it, a nicely organized desk (think of the ones you see on those pretty Instagram photos) just feels you with happy thoughts. Being on top of things is super motivating. If you want to perform at your optimal level at work, it is important to make sure that the space you work in is free of distractions, clutter, and junk.
To help with the clean workspace, use desk organizers that will keep your sticky notes, planners, papers, and supplies neatly arranged and off of your desk as much as possible.
Another thing you can do is be vigilant and mindful of when clutter is creeping into your workspace. That way, when you feel the messiness creeping in, you can have a plan of attack to clean up before things get out of hand.
