Here's How To Organize Your Desk For Maximum Productivity #WellnessWednesday

The holiday season is over. It is a new year, and most of us have settled back at work. But what greeted you when you walked into the job that first day back? Could it have been a messy desk that hasn’t been touched since last year? Well, if the answer is yes, then now is the perfect time to reorganize before you get too bogged down to work. But if you’re stuck on where to start, let us help you out with a few ways to start 2018 off fresh by organizing your desk for maximum productivity.

1.Get rid of the things you don’t need. Go ahead and set aside some time to really dive into what’s on your desk with a thorough cleaning session. I suggest taking everything off of your desk and putting it on a side table or empty space. Dust your desk off and sort through all of those papers, books, knickknacks, the three or four mugs you have, and anything else that’s just taking up space. Throw it all away so that you can have a clean slate (literally!)

2.Find a place for everything. You should only have the essentials left after your deep clean of the items on your desk. Now it’s time to think about how you use your desk and what you actually need. For instance, you’ll need a desktop or laptop, so make it the focal point of the desk and arrange your accessories (mouse, keypad, standing desk, printer, etc.) accordingly. Next, decide what else you must keep–in moderation. Yes, you need pencils, pens, a mug, and a stapler, but beyond that, really figure out what you can live without.

3.Prioritize your desk by the way that you work. At this stage, you’ve figured out what you must keep, so think about how you work during the day. What do you begin working on first thing? Do you get a lot of paperwork to review during the day? Then, organize! If your desk has drawers, utilize them. Arrange you files in the most efficient way possible for your workflow. You can also buy stackable trays to organize on top of the desk–and save some space! A good way to categorize things are to have trays for things to do, completed tasks, and revisions. Just make sure that you stick to the system that works for you! (Bonus: do a weekly desk clean to get rid of any unnecessary items that can pile up throughout the week.)
