Clear it out
To organize your workplace, it is very helpful if you have pre-planned your work, and accordingly, you can gather the things you will require and keep them separately. Start off by emptying your desk, and throw away anything that does not seem to be useful. Clean your desk every once in a while with sanitized liquid. Keep enough binders, pins, and folders to keep your documents, instead of laying them out on the table. Get pencil holders and small boxes to keep your necessities.
Instead of having scores of notes and papers flying everywhere with appointments or assignments, use the apps in the phone, such as Notes, Calendar, Reminders, Planners, Contacts, Files, and many more. This way you will have them all organized and in your hand at the time of need. Make it a habit to use the digital calendars and note-taking apps and to-do-list reminders to avoid forgetting anything important.
Keep as few products on the desk as possible, and instead, use alternatives. A crammed-up desk can really stress your head. Throw away the useless pens or the finished notebooks and the old documents that you don’t need lying around. Keep the important stuff in your drawers or a separate place, but try to make your working area as spacious as possible.
Freshen up your head
Have the work ahead of you planned, note it down, and keep it in front you. Drink plenty of lemon water and some fruits at your desk itself to avoid getting up time and again. If you think a particular project or assignment needs a lot of concentration, try facing your desk to the wall or a calmer environment to avoid getting distracted.
Personalize your space
Keep a picture of your dog or your loved ones on your desk, and if you need some extra push, get some motivational quotes or the picture of someone you idolize, this way it will make your goals clearer. Keep a trash can right beside you to avoid littering. You can keep some of your achievement certificates or some prized possessions in front of you to bring back the good memories, but then again, do not fill your desk with decoratives. Keep it simple, yet vibrant.
All these small cost-effective ways can make your workplace much more work ready and give a whole new vibe to your work environment.
