A cluttered unorganized work space can negatively affect your ability to focus and process information. The clutter also can lead to frustration and when coupled with typical work day events, increases the chances of you having a bad day. Here are 6 ways to rework your work space to improve flow and order. Create a relaxing work environment today.

Clean & De-clutter. A messy desk can equate to a messy and unorganized life.  But like life, clutter happens.  So periodically, it’s good to take time out to organize and dispose of the papers and files and sticky notes that can pile up one your desk.  Spray down your desk and computer with a good disinfectant and give it a good deep cleaning.

Declutter and CleanLighting. Lighting affects the mood and, believe or not, productivity. Natural lighting is always best, but it’s not always accessible from every workstation.  A sunlight desk lamp with a natural full spectrum sun light bulb is an excellent alternative.  Another option is introducing a 3 way lamp to your workspace with a warm light bulb. Warm lighting feels more natural. 

Soothing and Relaxing Music. Music is a powerful thing.  It has a direct effect on a person’s mood on a subconscious level.  It reduces stress.

Comfortable Chair. Find a relaxing ergonomic chair that supports the back.  We spend many long hours sitting at our desks.  Don’t sit in pain.  Find a chair that supports your head, neck and lumbar area.

    1. Thank you! I’m so glad you liked it. It has been very important for me to have proper lighting especially when I’m working. And the lighting differs depending on the type of work I’m doing. In my workshop I prefer a bright white light that allows me to see every inch of what I’m working on. 🙂
