Having a messy office can be stressful. Endlessly looking for things that should be easy to find not only wastes time but also stresses you out. Also organize your thoughts and projects This way you won’t worry about things falling through the cracks or that you forgot to take care of something urgent. “Get organized, clear your head, put together a to-do list (or an electronic task list) then prioritize. That way, you don’t have to keep thinking about those things because you’ll have systems in place to remind you,” reports Forbes.
