Ever get major desk envy?
When you come across a glittering space with perfect accessories, and beautiful natural light you think "That kind of space would make me work so much harder." Right?
Here's how to get the space of your dreams and optimize your desk for maximum productivity.
1. Clear the clutter.
Okay, having a few things on your desk is super fun, but if you're overrun with trash, papers and other stuff that doesn't help with your job, you're just setting yourself up for failure.
Go through your folders and take out everything that's irrelevant and start with a clean, fresh space.
2. Clean up your computer.
Not physically, but internally! Go through the folders on your desktop and delete all files that you don't need anymore. I have so many pictures, gifs and old documents I have to get rid of. Once your inner storage is all clean, you'll feel a lot more productive! It'll be easier to navigate and get things done in a more quick and efficient way.
3. Find the light.
Natural sunlight is essential for a positive working environment. There is a reason that plants survive off of the stuff. Try to situate your desk or work area by a window for a better feel. Having the natural light at your side will lead to increased alertness and an overall mood boost. Try to move your desk around at home if you can, and find a window. It'll definitely help!
4. Pick up some accessories.
Desk accessories can totally transform your space. The importance of surrounding yourself with things that make you happy can't be ignored. If you're a big fan of the color blue, buy some blue things! If you like pigs, buy some pig themed things! You know? It doesn't matter, if it makes you happy, it'll optimize your space.
5. Rearrange your supplies.
This is an example of an overtly organized space that doesn't look too obsessive. Putting things in easy-to-reach places will make it harder for you to forget about them. Got a really useful organizer or notepad that you just don't use? Put it in front of you!! It may seem like common sense, but you'd be surprised what a change in organizational pattern will do for you.
