It happens to the best of us: We get to work, and bam, our to-do list just sits there. There are many factors that contribute to a lack of productivity, and the biggest factor is our work environment. A well-designed office can help increase productivity, allowing us to be comfortable and in control of our daily tasks. However, there are some other workplace strategies that can help keep you organized, productive and ready to face each day. Here are a few suggestions:
Banish the Clutter
A clean and organized workspace is key to productivity. You’re not able to control how organized the entire office, but you can organize your own workspace. Every night before you leave, spend about five minutes clearing your desk and getting it in order for the next day. This way, you come in with an organized desk, which means an organized mind.
There’s an App for That
Folks, we all know it’s true: Social media is a time killer. So find an app (and there are plenty of them) that distracts the social media sites you tend to wander to. You can also find time tracking apps that show you how much time you spend on other sites other than ones that are work-related.
Stack the Snacks
Sometimes, your grumbling tummy can lead your mind to thoughts of lunch rather than finishing up that marketing report. Have some healthy snacks on-hand that will fulfill your tummy’s call to hold you over until lunch. Crackers, hummus, and almonds are great, and this way the report is done and ready to go before you head out the door for lunch.
If you’re looking for new office space as a way to help improve the overall work environment, we’re here to help.
