Clearing out your office during lockdown
Being that we're currently in the midst of lockdown chaos, there's never been a better time to sort your office before your staff return.
It's known that working amongst clutter isn't great for the mind. It can cause anxiety for some, and it can make you feel as if the mind is as cluttered as the space in which you're working.
Here are 5 reasons you should clear out your office for a safer, more productive work environment.
1. Clutter = Stress!
When you’re surrounded by mess, you’re going to feel more stressed. The more things you have lying around, the more you worry. You don't need to beat yourself up over clutter when working life is stressful enough as it is. Piles of paperwork and long-forgotten electronics are just two of the things that you might sift through when you're dealing with clutter in the office, both of which can be easily disposed of. You can sort out bin hire services to take the clutter to the tip.
2. It can be bad for your physical health
It's mentally exhausting to see so much mess all the time, especially in a place you need organization to be successful. You wouldn't think it would make you tired, but when your brain is constantly thinking about the clutter as well as everything else that you need to do at work, it can really take a toll. There are also claims that clutter can cause obesity Those who have a cluttered office deal with far more exhaustion than those who don't, as the mental load of constantly worrying about how to clear it up makes it hard to get through each day.
3. Clutter Costs Cash
Yes, it’s an investment for a good bin service to help you to dispose of your clutter, but clutter itself can be costly. When the paperwork is left without being recycled for months on end because you cannot face it, you’re leaving a stack of unpaid bills sitting around. This then costs you in credit ratings and debt that builds. You aso are susceptible to losing things when there is clutter to handle, which can lead to you buying more and more items you don't even need! See, costly!
4. Germs, Germs, Germs
If there are piles of things in your office, then there is grime underneath them. If your cleaners cannot see the germs, they cannot clean them. Once you’ve gone through clearing everything out, get the cleaners in to clear everything out properly and bring your office up to scratch.
5. It’s Dangerous
Being among boxes and stacks of clutter is dangerous. At any given minute, one of them can topple on your head and you could find yourself buried under piles of rubbish, which requires a very embarrassing phone call to the paramedics and firefighters to dig you out.
Decluttering may take some time, but it’s the best thing that you can for your mental clutter. Investing the time into the cleanliness of your office will do you a favour, and it will ensure that you will get to the bottom of those piles and finally bring some order into your business.
