Clean up Your Desk! The Benefits of Having an Organized Office

We’ve all seen this: the desk or office of the coworker who evidently prefers to work among stacks of miscellaneous papers, random office supplies, assorted sticky notes, take-out containers or other assorted debris.

Don’t let clutter take over your work area! The benefits of an organized workspace far outweigh the effort it takes to get your area cleaned up. These include:

  • A positive reflection of your work style. Managers, coworkers or patients visiting your desk or office may think of the Nutty Professor if greeted by your unorganized, messy area. Help to create a positive, professional impression by surrounding yourself (and others) with a neat, clean work station.
  • Less stress. A de-cluttered work space helps create a Zen atmosphere, while a cluttered one lends itself to the stress of never knowing exactly where something is. When you’re organized, you can easily locate everything you need to get your job done with as few headaches as possible.
  • Clarity of thought. The other bonus to your Zen-like work station is that it may help you to think more clearly. Some studies have shown that cluttered areas tend to cloud our brains, while organization allows our thoughts to flow more freely.
  • Improved productivity. Just think of all the things you can accomplish while you’re not hunting down objects, files and other items that are neatly stowed in your organized office! A clean work area can help improve your productivity and allow you to accomplish more in less time.

Why not get started today?

Begin by jotting down a plan for how to tackle each part of your clean-up, then set aside a few minutes at the end of the day to get it done. You might also consider stopping by on a Saturday afternoon if the job is too big. Then, make plans for how to keep your space neat and clean, such as a filing system, paper trays or other organizational tools. You’ll be glad you did when you breathe just a little easier at your desk.
