Plus, tips to help you arrange your workspace.

Having a good workspace is vital to being efficient and productive. In fact, studies have claimed when the place we work in is a mess, so are we. As per an article on Harvard Business Review, "Our physical environments [can] significantly influence our cognition, emotions, and behavior, affecting our decision-making and relationships with others.” Hence, why cluttered spaces can cause stress and raise our anxiety levels, which may then impede our focus.

To help you be wary of your work area and habits, we’ve listed down five tips, along with a curated shopping guide, to achieve an ideal work from home desk that's not just aesthetic, but will keep you productive as well.

1. Arrange and declutter with organizers

With no lines to delineate our jobs from our personal lives, working from home can turn our desks into a mess of official documents and whatever personal trinkets we have lying around. An easy fix to this problem is to make sure all your belongings are sorted separately in holders or containers. Luckily, multiple local shops offer many aesthetic products that can help organize your desk, whether it’s a penholder, a small rack, or clips to get a handle on your cords.

4. Keep track of your tasks with note pads

Calendars and planners are a great way to list errands and schedules. But having something more accessible on your desk could be more helpful for jotting down random bursts of ideas or important reminders—that’s when memo pads and sticky notes come in handy!
