Nine hours a day, five days a week – you spend it in your cluttered workspace, trying to make ends meet. The least that you can do for yourself is to do some improvements. The management has already done their part with the air quality through the dust collection booths, do yourself a favor by following these steps to improve your work surroundings:
1. Unwind those Cables
Tangled cables can be a distracting mess. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to organize it without needing to unplug everything. Try out braided sleeving that is ideal if you want to group the cables together for stable installation. You can even use a tough cardboard tube to ensure that it holds the cables intact. Another way to organize them is by securing the cables with the binder clips to the backs and sides of your desk.
2. Declutter Your Desk
Out of all the mess that is in your work area, the things in your visual field near your desk are the ones that will distract you the most. There are individuals who are very particular with the accessories that they use to organize their desk, ranging from fancy, coordinated and expensive sets. What most do not know is that they do not need to waste their cash just to make their workplace look presentable.
First thing’s first, throw out anything that you don’t need. Afterwards, find anything in your home that you can use and modify it into an office organizer. Your creativity is the key. Try raiding the cupboards in your kitchen for storage boxes and tubs that you no longer use. You can even use store your markers and rulers in your old coffee mug.
Keep in mind that decluttering your workspace is vital to your own mental health. It lowers the cognitive capabilities that you should have devoted to productive responsibilities instead. Follow the above easy steps to create a healthier and happier workspace.
