How many times have you sat down at your desk and not known where to begin?
You are greeted by piles of paper. Post-it notes cover your computer screen, the staples which have fallen from their box now lie across all 4 corners of your desk. The bin beside your feet needs emptying. You will get round to it, you’re just not sure where to start.
Its all too common. The cluttered workspace. Its surprising you can get anything done when everything is such a mess.
Here at Concept Cleaning Services we know how effective a clean workspace can be. An organised workspace has been proven to help reduce stress and improve productivity. Clutter simply overloads our brains with excessive stimuli, causing them to be distracted by stimuli which isn’t necessary or important.
With that in mind, here are some tips to help you create a little S.P.A.C.E.
SORT – Gather everything from one category together. Assign by importance and how often you will use it.
PURGE – Discard items and documents you no longer need. Do you really need 2005 sales figures laying on your desk?
ASSIGN – Designate a storage place for all items. Does everything have to live on your desk? Make use of those drawers.
CONTAINERISE – Find suitable containers for everything. Lunch box tubs are great for stationary, while larger ones are great for storing all of those bulky items not in use!
EQUALISE – Make it a habit. Consistently return everything to its home at the end of everyday. Ready for a clean, clear and focused tomorrow.
