For many of us, the struggle to maintain ordered lives is sometimes more difficult than others. As we juggle family, friends, work and health, chaos can sometimes get the best of us. The way to live an organized life is to embrace organization in the details. We have to set up structures and boundaries for ourselves to maintain order throughout our days, and throughout our lives. In the corporate world, this starts in your office or at your desk. Here are 5 Ways to Organize Your True North Standing Desk:
Evaluate the space around your standing desk, starting from the top and working your way down to the bottom. Can you use the wall above your desk to install storage in the form of shelves or mail slots? Examine the way your computer parts are situated on your desk – can they be consolidated to allow for more desktop space?
With cloud-based technologies, there is little need now for cumbersome paper trails. Create a habit of scanning important documents as soon as they come through the mail, and saving them to an orderly file sharing system on your computer. If you prefer to take notes by hand, set aside a space on your standing desk that is dedicated to written materials. Everything else should be kept clean and without clutter.
One of the best ways you can stay organized is to devote five minutes to each day in order to take inventory of your surroundings. Remove unwanted documents, the stray can of soda, and wipe down the surface of your sit to stand desk. End each day in preparation for the next, and be sure that you are able to pick up the space around your floor, as well.
One of the benefits of ergonomic office furniture is that it promotes a healthy lifestyle. For many office workers, the desire to be organized only starts at the office. We want these habits to carry over into our home and family lives. Standing desks are known to burn more calories, decrease cholesterol and combat obesity. Using this type of corporate office furniture offers a holistic set of benefits to your life.
It can sometimes be easy to get carried away with DIY efforts and how-to articles found online. Social media makes it very easy for us to compare ourselves to others, and we have to be wary of falling under its spell. However, there are many organizational tips and tricks to be found online. Use Pinterest and other social media tools to help inspire organizational ideas for your standing desk.
