Why not start off the new year with a fresh, clean office environment? Now is the time to get organized! Studies show that cleaner work spaces lead to less stress and more productivity. Whether you work in a large building or have a home office, this is a great time to take control of your work space.
Start by taking care of the all-around cleanliness of your office. Use all-purpose cleaners to clean your desk, windows and other surfaces. Be sure to use computer cleaning supplies for your computer and other electronic accessories. Electronic-friendly cleaning wipes are great to keep on hand for your computer screens and keyboards. Compressed air dusters work well for cleaning between keyboard keys and other small spaces.
Once you have thoroughly cleaned your office, take a few extra steps to ensure your office remains a cleaner, more organized area. Is your trash can often full or overflowing? You may need a larger receptacle. It seems like a small detail, but having a trash can that’s too small often results in clutter and trash that doesn’t get thrown away. Another way to keep your office clean and organized is to have the right organizational supplies. Get filing supplies, folders, more office shelving and the other organization aids that work best for your space. These office supplies are a small investment compared to the ease and productivity they will generate later.
Rejuvenate your work life by starting this year with a clean and organized office.
