Having a cluttered desk can also negatively affect your productivity, so to help you focus, it’s really important to keep your dedicated work space at home, whether it’s an office in the garden or a corner of the kitchen as organised and separated as possible. It’s also paramount to try and keep a balance between your personal and professional life.
