Quarantine got you down? You might be feeling claustrophobic, restless, unproductive, or maybe some combination of the three. Those of us working from home not only have to stay focused amid the distractions of family members, but must also set up shop in a home office (if you’re lucky enough to have one) or a makeshift home office (if you aren’t). Either way, working from home is an adjustment for everyone involved, and may have you feeling stressed out. If so, now’s the perfect time to check out Marie Kondo’s latest book, Joy at Work, for tips on finding joy at work—whether in the office or at home.
Marie Kondo is “a tidying expert” as well as the bestselling author of numerous works including Spark Joy and The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Her aim is to help others find more joy in their lives by decluttering and organizing their living spaces. Her success has even led her to star in Netflix’s hit series, “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.”
Joy at Work is also co-authored by Scott Sonenshein, the author of Stretch, “A groundbreaking approach to succeeding in business and life, using the science of resourcefulness.”
Kondo and Sonenshein use their combined knowledge about success and organization to help readers find satisfaction and joy in the workplace. It can be easy to let work mentally drain you, but by following Joy at Work’s tips, you can change that. Having a system for storing papers, turning off your email for 30 minutes a day, and color-coding your office supplies are just a few ways you can not only keep yourself organized, but happy, in the workplace.
Given the current circumstances, many of us aren’t sure when we’ll next set foot in the office. But that doesn’t mean you can’t use these tips right away—your home office is the perfect place to start. Now, more than ever, it’s important to keep ourselves mentally grounded amid the current chaos of the world. Joy at Work will help you tidy up your home office and be productive, but not overwhelmed.
Joy at Work is now available for purchase in hardcover and Kindle on Amazon. If you have the chance, check it out—your stay-at-home work life will thank you.
