“Decorating is not about making stage sets. It’s not about making pretty pictures for the magazines; it’s really about creating a quality of life, a beauty that nourishes the soul.”Albert Hadley

Wise words from a wise man. You don’t need to do an overhaul on your office, but taking the time to make some aesthetic changes will boost morale, improve productivity, and brighten everyone’s attitudes! A few tweaks to your desk can make all the difference between a frustrating, hectic work day and a busy, efficient one.

Your workplace may as well be your second home; treat it like so. You may not have the comfort of your sofa or bed, but you can personalize, rejuvenate, and create a place you love to be in and love to work in. Better Office Systems believes that everything starts at your desk. Make it a great beginning. A splash of color, a clean sweep, and a deep breath makes the world go ’round!

Green Machine

Go green in the office and on your desk! Adding a few small plants to your desk not only brings a little color to an otherwise bland space, but it has psychological and physical benefits as well. According to research, introducing plants into your office can reduce stress and other negative affects, including:

  • Tension/Anxiety – 37% reduction
  • Depression/Dejection – 58% reduction
  • Anger/Hostility – 44% reduction
  • Fatigue – 38% reduction

The study concluded, “This study shows that just one plant per work space can provide a very large lift to staff spirits, and so promote well-being and performance.”

Where is that one document? Where’s my pen? Where’s my keyboard?! Having a messy desk can have an effect on your performance, attitude, and increase your stress. If you’re finding year old documents, orange peels, and lost messages on your desk, you’re not alone. In a survey from Office Depot, 32% of respondents admitted to a disorganized work space, and those are just the ones that admitted to it. In the study they found that 47% of workers surveyed believed disorganization and clutter led to lost time, while 14% said it resulted in missed deadlines.

“Your desk is a workstation, not a storage facility.” Says organization guru and author, Peter Walsh. De-clutter your desk and focus on work. Take the BOSBiz challenge: adorn your desk with the tools you only use all the time. We mean your phone, computer, tape, calculator; the only things you can’t live without. Take away the superfluous items and see if it makes a difference! Keep those plants though!
