3 Tips to Improve Your Productivity
1. Declutter your workspace. Clutter can be toxic to your workspace. It makes it difficult to focus, it can decrease productivity, and it can create stress. If you look right here on Green Facilities, you’ll see that they also understand the importance of a clean work environment.
To see what you should toss, try testing all your appliances and tools to see if they still work. Anything that doesn’t should be recycled or tossed. You could even hire some skip bins and do a full house de-clutter! You can also declutter by shredding and recycling old, unneeded papers.
2. Create work zones. When all your work supplies are mixed up, it’s difficult to stay on track. Try creating separate zones with pull-out shelves, file drawers, and Solutions for all your tasks. This could include giving yourself a place to make calls, conduct research, store your supplies, and more. If your workspace is both a home office and a craft room, you should have a designated space for your computer and a designated space for your art supplies. Having separate work zones will help you focus on one task before moving onto the next.
3. Remember to relax. So, you’ve moved your distractions out of your workspace. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take breaks to relax or find inspiration during your workday or craft session. Try making a space just for breaks and relaxation. This could be a side table and a cozy chair in the corner of your office, or a wall with your music collection using pull-out shelves. Either way, you’ll feel (and work) better knowing that you can plan 15-30 minute breaks to enjoy throughout the day.
