Are you looking forward to the weekend as much as I am? Before I close up my home office for the weekend, I make it a weekly ritual to clean off my desk, and close up any writing folders and binders. Cleaning up the clutter makes me feel more relaxed. Since my office is at home and in an open floor plan, I do tend to walk by my desk. It’s so tempting to sit down and write or research, especially if I have my folders and binders laying out.
So to remedy this urge, I close things off. Everything work-related is tucked away until Monday, and trust me, it works! I feel like I can relax and not have those temptations to work on stuff when I should be relaxing. Not buts about it.
What do you do for your office ritual before the weekend?
