When we are relaxed, we work better. We are more productive and better able to take on all the tasks we need to tackle. But even if you are good at reducing many stressors in your life, it is understandable if you neglect to create a peaceful, organized work area.
Most people do not realize how much their physical environment can impact them. So, to help you find yourself more relaxed and more productive, here are tips at creating a peaceful, organized work area.
And this clutter can take many forms. It might be paperwork you have yet to file. It could be your massive pile of chapsticks you have managed to accumulate. It could be your collection of frog figurines that your great aunt decided you collected twenty years ago and has been gifting to you every Christmas since. Whatever it is, clear it out. Trash it if you must.
Whatever you do keep needs to have a dedicated place. And it is important that you assign it a spot. Once you do, it will be easier to always return it there. As long as you stick with this, the clutter should never return.
Once you declutter, it is time to set the mood. You can do this with sounds, sights, and smells. If there is a type of music that sooths you, put in some speakers and play it. If there is a color that gives you peace, incorporate it wherever possible. If certain smells relax you, get candles or oil diffusers.
If you go hodge-podge in your decorating, it can make the space feel chaotic. Instead, select a unified theme. And as with setting the mood, pick one that helps you feel soothed.
