It’s Monday, your work week has started and you’re just getting back into the swing of things. Lets not start the week off with pent-up stress from the prior Holiday week… The New Year is just a few days away! Emerald’s de-stressing tip for this week is: Organize your desk!
How can a neater desk reduce stress? Well, because the source of many types of stress comes from a feeling of being out of control, of being overwhelmed. When your work area looks like a battlefield, you feel the tension growing. And when you can’t find that report you need, your stress level soars even higher. By organizing your files and piles, you get a sense (perhaps mistakenly) that there is some order in all the chaos.
