Spring Cleaning the Office
With spring just around the corner, have you given a thought about spring cleaning your office? As the saying goes “Tidy Room, Tidy Mind”, a clean and tidy space can boost productivity, wellbeing and happiness at work.
Here at Muffle, caring for our team’s health and wellbeing is incredibly important to us as we know that the pressures of a fast-paced job can often become a cause of stress, therefore affecting our health and wellbeing. One of the ways we like to relieve stress is by doing a spring clean. Now, we know that some of you are still working from home, but hopefully you can resonate with some of the tips we’ve given!
Tidy Your Workspace
A tidy workspace is incredibly important for organisation and presentation - you wouldn’t want a prospective client to walk through your office and see a sea of messy workspaces.
The general rule for keeping your desk tidy is to keep only what you absolutely need at arm's length. That piece of paper you’ve been keeping on your desk for 2 months? File it. What about the sticky note on your monitor? If you don’t need it anymore, recycle it!
Don't forget to clean any dishes and clear our any old snacks from your bottom drawer!
Digital Clean Up
Tidying up isn’t just limited to physically cleaning your workstation, a digital clean up can help alleviate the stress of having too many files dotted around – remove files that are outdated or no longer needed. If you have the time then clean up and organise your emails!
If you use a project management and collaboration tool such as Trello, Monday or Asana then organise your tasks! Work through what is important or urgent and organise the rest. This will help you to understand what needs prioritising and what can be delegated or done later.
In the digital age, it is important that you continue to change your password every few months so why not go ahead and do that during your spring clean!
With creating a COVID-safe office at the forefront of everybody’s mind, while doing your spring clean, take the time to dust and disinfect your workspace and all high touch point areas!
Add New Desk Accessories
Nothing says a job well done like rewarding yourself for your hard work! Spruce up your workspace with some acoustic accessories. Autex Desk Screens are a stylish way to add privacy to your everyday life - offering effective sound absorption and a place to pin important notes, these desk screens are a great reward for your new tidy workspace!
