Are you a freshman in college and want to learn how to keep your desk organized? Or are you a senior and still haven’t figured it out yet? Whoever you are, I can promise you that organization, especially at your desk where you will spend a good amount of time at, will help you in the long run. I love being organized. I have since I was a young girl. I love the look of things neat and tidy. It truthfully keeps me sane because messy just doesn’t cut it for me.
Truth is, and you might not believe it, but there are many benefits of keeping your desk organized.
- It reduces stress. I can vouch for this because mentally it keeps me well. Sometimes I’ll organize stuff for fun and yes you read that correctly. When chaos is around you (or simply, at your desk) it can promote distractions that are unnecessary. You may start to become overwhelmed because of the unorganization that presents itself in front of you. Do you have trouble focusing? Organization will help, I promise.
- It saves you time. I can’t remember how many hours I spent in college rummaging through my backpack for important documents or going through the boxes on my desks for a little sheet of paper I needed for my Marine Biology class. It was SO much time wasted when I could have had everything separated and organized. When everything has its place, even little things like sticky notes, it saves you time so you work on other assignments or do other things like taking a 30 minute nap.
- It facilitates creativity. It’s true, organization does help bring the flow of ideas to the mind. If you have a clean slate, you will remember important projects you forgot about and you will be inspired to do more.
- It communicates professionalism. If you’re living with a roommate, keep in mind how they like belongings to be in the room as well. They might not like seeing an unorganized place, it may stress them out especially if they’re OCD, so be mindful that if you want to show off to others that you work hard, are professional, clean and a good roommate, then organizing your desk is key.
So, if you’re looking for all right desk organizers or simply, have no idea where to start, have no fear, I have here some of the best desk organizers that you will want for your dorm room.
