Organize Your Home Office Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to setting up and tidying up your home office. Today, many people who start their own business, abandon the usual offices in separate buildings and adapt their home for work purposes. In addition, the home office is often created by freelance workers.
The story of Organize Your Home Office Day begins with a related homeofficelife.com initiative. It was established to remind people of the importance of keeping their workplace in order.
The active emergence of home offices began around the 20th century. Usually psychologists, lawyers, detectives, etc. set up workrooms in houses. In a globalized world, many workers are moving to a home-based work format. That way you can do your chores and work at the same time.
The real peak in the popularity of home offices came in 2019, when the Covid-19 pandemic began. Many workers then had to readjust to work at home.
- To quickly get into the habit of tidying up your place, it’s better to do it after each work day. Then the next morning will always start with a cozy and warm workplace, and you won’t have to urgently clean up before the new day begins.
- Workplace clutter is a myth. Psychologists have proven that a clean and tidy workplace makes workers more energetic, efficient, improves mood and reduces fatigue during activity.
