How Do You Organize Your Workspace?

One in four Americans wish they had a more organized workspace. Are you one of them?

Staying organized in the workplace is incredibly important and leads to better output and quality work. It can be tough to get started, though, especially if you have an excess of clutter.

To help, the folks at Simply Self Storage put together the infographic above, detailing how to organize different aspects of your work day to help you get started.

The Benefits of an Organized Workspace

When there is an excess of clutter, whether it is physical or digital, the brain gets distracted. This leaves less bandwidth for the task at hand. When you are organized there are fewer competing items for your brain to focus on, and that makes you more productive! Other scientific benefits of organization include reduced stress, better eating habits, better success at achieving fitness goals, and better sleep.

A study conducted by HLW International LLP found that employee productivity levels were “highly influenced” by the cleanliness of their workplace. When you can find what you need, when you need it, you are working more efficiently. Organizing your digital as well as physical workspaces can help you have a clear mind and productive day.

How To Get Started with Organized Systems and Habits

Getting things organized is a start, but keeping them organized will help you experience success on an ongoing basis. Once you create a new organizational system, you’ll want to make sure you’ve put some systems and habits into place to help you stick to it.
