5 Tips to Spring Clean Your Office and Boost Productivity!

Little Goblins - Tuesday, March 22, 2016

Here are our tips to help you stay organized and make your office a place of productivity…

The sun is starting to shine and the last thing anyone wants to be doing is working, inside, away from the fresh air and vitamin D. Spring is here and now is the perfect time to tackle any mess in your office! Why? Spring-cleaning your workspace can help boost your productivity, get more work done, feel more accomplished and could even get you back outside more often!

Tip #1: Filing System

Take advantage of productivity tools to help you keep your filing organized. Whether you need to tame a mountain of paperwork or sort through digital docs, there is a system that exists to help you tackle the heap. Our traditional filing systems will help keep the necessary paperwork in its place. Also try using colour to help visually keep tasks and notes sorted.

Tip #2: Make Big Notes

When a project is big and you’ve got multiple people working together, using dry-erase boards can be a huge help. Using a board can assist you in establishing goals, keeping important tasks on your radar and maintaining a sense of urgency (even while the sun shines temptingly out the windows!). Try our glass boards for a clean, stylish, yet productive addition to your office décor.

Tip #3: Keep Your Desk (and Desktop) Clear

There’s a lot to do on the job and having a chaotic desk will do nothing to help you maintain your productivity and sanity at work. Take the time to do a desk clear out of unnecessary paper, clutter and throw out pens that no longer work. As they say, a tidy space makes for a tidy mind! Don’t forget your computer desktop too!

Tip #4: Plants

Put plants in your office and breath deeply! Plants can help bring freshness and peace of the great outdoors into your space. We wrote all about how awesome plants are in a workspace and boosting your health is just one of the benefits.

Tip #5: Plan Your Time

This may seem obvious but it’s one tip that often gets forgotten. Create a routine and try to stick to it. For example, block out specific times in your day to address emails. Constantly jumping from task to inbox and back can eat up your time. Another technique is to dedicate blocks of time to get a task done. For example, try focusing on a task for 25 minutes before taking a short mental break.

Happy Spring Cleaning and wishing you a productive season!
