It is a well-known fact everyone works better in an organised area. Without the clutter and chaos you will find it easier to work without stress. Working in a disorganised environment can make it harder for you to concentrate, failing to focus on the task in hand. Here are some handy tips to help you keep your office area as organised as possible.
Decorate with light colours: Keep the room as bright as possible. Natural light is the most advisable, if possible as it keeps your attention at its peak. Therefore, if you have a window, putting your table directly in front of it is a great idea. If you need extra space invest in some drawers for storage space. White high gloss furniture is great to keep the room light. Avoid too much decoration. This will cause easy distraction, both consciously and subconsciously. If the room is decorated with a soft colour palette and not much artwork you are more likely to keep your focus.
Get a filing system: Maybe an old cliché and quite an obvious idea, the addition is guaranteed to give you more space and create an organised environment if you use it properly. Big files are a good idea so that you can colour code or label them according to what you need. Filing cabinets are also a good addition if you aren’t a fan of computer storage. You can get different designs and they are the ultimate traditional way of keeping your belongings organised. Letter racks are great for keeping stationary and notepads handy and organised; find a nice design to brighten up your room.
Keep it Organised: Take a few minutes at the end of the day to organise your documents that you have used throughout the day, throwing out the things you don’t need and filing the documents you do. It will be a lot more appealing and easier to start your work the next morning. It will also save you time, allowing you to start your work straight away rather than organising everything in the morning.
Clear Your Desk: Keep your desk spotless. Stick to the rule of having nothing on it. Obviously the things you need should be on your desk but everything else should be put away. Stay clear of leaving letters, your printer or notepads you aren’t using on your desk, making it easier to manoeuvre and creating a better space to be in.
Get A Good Chair: This is essential to reduce the risk of backache. Having good lumbar support is very important and will allow you to carry out your jobs easily, without constant nagging pain.
