Do you pay much attention to how your desk looks? Did you know that the quality of your work, your productivity and creativity depend on how well organized your working space is? Do you really think that if your desk looks like this it will help you finish your to-do list on time and to avoid procrastination?
Let us ask you one more question. Do you really enjoy and feel happy working at a desk like this? Well, of course, you can tell us that it is your own special world of disorder and actually it helps you be more creative! Mmm… maybe we’d believe you if your job is related to creative pursuits, art or design. Enough of the fake justifications! Let’s just accept that your desk is a huge mess. Just accept it.
By the way, did you know that researchers discovered that if you have a messy working space it can have an effect on your productivity, mood, and well-being? Moreover, some employees can even lose up to one hour of working time during the day searching for things that aren’t in the place they should be.
Wait, wait, wait. Don’t do it to your colleague’s desk. Do it to your desk! This way is better.
Do you feel freer now? For sure you must. It’s already going well! Now, we’ll share with you some great tips on how you can make your work space more fresh, creative, clean and useful!
RULE 1. LESS IS MORE
No, it’s not just a picture from the internet. Your desk also can look like this. One of the main rules of putting together the best desk is minimalism. Leave only the most important things that you really use every day at work. Let it be a leather notebook, your favourite mug, 2-3 small personal details that make you smile.
RULE 2. BE CREATIVE
Let everything on your table be special. Notebook? Write your favourite quote on it! A pen? Let it be your favourite colour! A plant? Grow it so you can give a cutting for your family or friends. Hey, we spend 8 hours every day by sitting at our work desk. It must be special and make you smile!
RULE 3. BE GREEN! BRING A PLANT
Plants are one of those little touches that makes things seem brighter. Facing some problems? Tired? Not in the mood? Look at your plant and smile! Bring him a bit of water and you’ll feel boosted too. Taking care of something warms the heart.
By the way, the colour green is great for making you feel more fresh, relaxed, and it can improve your concentration.
RULE 4. PLEASE, ORGANIZE IT
Pens, pencils, papers, scissors, post-its scattered everywhere! No, just stop it. You only need one pen, one pencil, one pair of scissors and a pack of post-its. No more! However, if you like to have many different pens and use them according to your everyday mood, we have just the solution!
This small organizer for your desk is one of the best things that we have ever seen! We are dreaming about buying it already!
RULE 5. PUT A SPECIAL PERSONAL DETAIL ON YOUR TABLE
Your desk is your working “life”. Let it be creative and inspire you! Put something special on your desk that’s just for you. It can be your favourite book, a small pad with motivational quotes, a photo of your family, or something that will make you smile and give you strength in case you need it!
By the way! Even when your work space is perfectly organized, accidents can always happen. So, be ready!
