Reduce the stress of clutter

  • Apply constraints and stick to them: to tabs open in your browser, notebooks, magazines etc.
  • Use small storage spaces: Less room means less room for clutter.
  • Set time aside to clean, sort, and discard every single month.
  • Clean your desktop at the end of every workday so to-do items don’t linger and you’ve got a clean slate to start with the next day.

It's when your brain knows that when you’re in a certain place, you’re taking a certain action.

You might not be in a position to choose your workspace, but there are quick fixes: look for a spot with natural light from a window or skylight, take a walk outside when you feel stuck, or simply explore a new location. 

A new environment can quite literally lead to new ideas.

Noise and productivity

If you can’t find a spot that’s silent, noise cancelling headphones or music that drowns out speech can help regain that focus, especially if you work in shared spaces or offices.

The sounds around you and the music you listen to can have a huge impact on your productivity.
