Organizing your work space can make a word of difference in how you feel. If you walk into a room and see a desk that have no surface because it is cluttered with piles of unopened mail, paperwork you need to get to, and pens and pencils strewn about, you are more than likely not going to get anywhere very fast because you will feel overwhelmed and not know where anything and/or everything is at.
However, if you walk into an office that has a desk that is completely cleared off and everything has been filed away in to it’s own space you will probably feel like you can get started and do anything you’d like. I know if my desk is a mess it makes me feel yucky and when I’m trying to do work on it most of the time it just drives me crazy because I can’t even find a surface to write on.
Take the time to clear off your desk and file everything away. I’m sure you’ll feel much better. Start by throwing away all of the paper that you don’t need. You don’t need all of the envelopes that your bills come in, they just take up space. Open them all up and file them away. I suggest going paperless with all of your bills. That’s one way to eliminate extra clutter in your life. I know I’ve really enjoyed not having a stack of bills that I need to file away each month ever since I switched to paperless. Give it a try and see what you think.
