Focusing on work can be difficult, especially when you work from home. While there are plenty of ways to improve productivity, did you know that having a tidy desk is one of them?
According to a study published in Psychological Science, whether you keep a tidy or messy desk can make a difference to your behaviour. A tidy desk will encourage you to do what is expected of you, so you're more likely to get on with your work.
Furthermore, the less clutter you have on your desk, the easier it is for you to find everything, meaning you'll be more efficient and have enough room at your workspace to actually work.
If you feel the time has come to get your desk organized, here are a few desk tidy ideas to get you started.

You can start off with the pieces pushed together, and expand it as you collect more cool stuff for your workspace. If you get bored, rearrange the shelves to breathe some new life into your workspace - easy!
