Develop a New Routine
A new routine will help you to stay organized. As your lifestyle, workload, and the season changes, so does your routine. Take note of what is working and what’s not working in your current routine. You can adjust your working hours to match the season or your kids’ schedules. A new routine will help you to develop a better way of handling the basics at home.
Create a System
Each one of us has a different way of organizing. Some need calendars, story boards, timelines, and lists while others just need a diary. The best way to keep your office organized is to use minimal items. For example, you can buy a calendar with lists or use the calendar/diary in your Smartphone or computer.
Add Fresh Flowers

It’s no secret that work can be overwhelming at times. Fresh flowers can brighten up a drab office and enhance the atmosphere. Additionally, they can reduce air pollutants and minimize stress. Studies have shown that plants and flowers can increase productivity since they create a warm, comfy environment. Choose plants that require little care as they are easier to maintain.
Fall is a time to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Clutter not only makes your office look disorganized, it makes you think you have more pending work which might increase your stress. Get rid of things you don’t use and sell those that are useful. You can give the items to friends, Goodwill, Last Chance Mercantile, and other organizations.
