Feeling Drained? Clean Up Your Desk

Around three in the afternoon, my energy often feels zapped. Sometimes all I need is a handful of walnuts, but other times a snack is not enough.

I have found that clearing my desk of clutter actually helps me think more clearly. When my desk is a mess and covered with Post-it notes and dirty coffee mugs, my brain feels muddled, too. Generally, I clean my desk at the end of the day, but when my energy is dragging in the afternoon I clean it thenk. On these slow days, I clean up my virtual desktop, too. If you're dragging right now, why not try it?

TOTALLY AGREE. I always clean my desk/room before I do big projects, papers, etc. It helps me focus my energies on something that shows results really fast, and plus the decluttering makes my environment less distracting.

i'm the same way. i feel like it's really hard for me to focus if i have tons of papers on my desk which completely baffles me about my boss. no joke, you can't see her desk at all - she's got at least a foot of paper on top of it - and my asst and i swear that there's something dead underneath all the papers. it's just scary! now that we're moving to a new building in a couple months and won't have space - she'll HAVE to get organized (we hope!)

i've always believed that the clutter in the mind is connected to the clutter in the room =)

This is so so true. I do it at home and at work, and it always makes me feel better.

I do this 2 to 3 times a week. It makes me so much more ready to work.

I do this every single afternoon after lunch. I go through all my paperwork and clear up all the cultures I have waiting for me to do. It helps me feel organized and in control of things. I find that when my workload is very chaotic and hectic, I feel overwhelmed and kind of swamped.
