Irritable Desk Syndrome

(Note – this is a 2016 summer addition ‘best of the best’ blog from the past.)

Clearing out the clutter in your head starts with cleaning up your office. Look around your office are there any empty dishes, paper to be sorted, 10 old posted notes, files on the floor because your desk space is already full? How can you expect to think clearly if your work space isn’t clear?

There are actual health and psychological benefits of a clean, uncluttered desk and there is even a name for it: Irritable Desk Syndrome

As stated on the website “IDS is caused by working long hours at a cluttered desk, often with poor posture. The combination can lead to both physical and mental symptoms, including chronic pain, and loss of productivity.”

I would encourage you to take 10 minutes before each working day to do a little tidy up; you will feel much better and may even be more productive.

Until next week… Embrace the Adventure
