It would be New Year, New Day in a few more weeks, and you’re excited to go out shopping and be ready for the once-in-a-year New Year’s Eve party. However, does your work-desk look New Year-worthy, or does it have pens and pencils and papers strewn all over it? If yes, you’re not welcoming the new beginnings the right way, right? After all, a cluttered desk leads to a cluttered mind, which ultimately creeps into your life. Not convinced? Here are five reasons why you should de-clutter your workspace soon –
Perks Up Your Confidence
Somehow, a clean desk works way better when you want to be more productive and want to achieve many things in a day. For one thing, you’ll find a lot of items that you might have thought that you have lost – thus redeeming your reputation in front of the boss. You’ll be much more comfortable at your desk and be able to finish off tasks much more easily.
Inspires To Keep It Tidy All The Time
If you identify as a procrastinator, chances are that you keep pushing away the chance to clear your desk. It might just happen that you will only clean your desk if there’s an apocalypse. However, it’s nice to clean your desk without being told to do so. So, it’s your job to maintain the tidiness at your desk.
Improves Your Health

Sounds weird right? What does your desk have to do with your health? Well, a cluttered desk means a dirty desk with lots of germs about. If you’ve been suffering from immunity issues these days, chances are that you need to clear up the mess on your desk and give it a wipe-down with disinfectant and a piece of cloth. Don’t forget to straighten the items and toss the waste into the bin.
Keeps You Motivated
If you’re currently out of inspiration, you can try clearing up the desk and you can watch your inspiration soar. Not only will you find things that you’ve supposedly lost, but you’ll find new creativity for your next project. If you find yourself not up to working at the moment, try cleaning your desk and then get back to work. It is a matter of hardly fifteen minutes, but it works wonders.
Makes You Feel Accomplished
At the end of the job, you’ll feel really good looking at your (cleaner) desk. You’ll get a sense of accomplishment about finishing a task, and celebrate a small win. Now, you can start working on your projects with a fresher mind.
Thus, these are the top five reasons for keeping your desk squeaky-clean and tidy. Start from tomorrow itself, and clean your way to a brighter and happier New Year!
