If you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed -- and you have a cluttered workspace -- it is time to get organized, declutter and purge in order to find some relief.
The Doctors explain that research has shown that a chaotic and messy space can negatively affect someone's ability to stay focused and be productive -- and if you are among the millions of Americans now working from home, having a clutter-free space is more important than ever.
Dr. Ian suggests the following tips to help keep your space low on stress and even lower on clutter:
1. Begin and end your work in a clean and organized space.
2. Use color-coded folders and labels track your mail, forms, and important papers.
