    January 8th: National “Clean Off Your Desk Day”
    Did you know the second Monday in January is designated National Clean Off Your Desk Day?
    Now you do, you’re welcome.

    Here are 5 tips to consider when de-cluttering your desk:
    1. Get rid of distractions. Close your door, set up a “do not disturb” sign, ask someone to cover the phones, do something to remove yourself from anything to distract you from tackling your messy desk.
    2. Clear as much as you can. Start with a clean slate and build a system to stay organized.
    3. Elevate your computer. It’s good for your posture and adds storage space underneath.
    4. Use your drawers. Most likely, you’re either not using your drawers, or not using them properly.
    5. Tidy your desk daily. Spending just 5 minutes each day to declutter and reorganize your desk will increase your workspace efficiency and mental clarity.
