Streamline Your Desktop Icons
"Every morning your office should welcome you and motivate you to do your best work," says Walsh. That includes your computer, which is the modern worker's essential tool. A screen cluttered with icons will trigger your stress hormone and make it impossible to find anything. Instead, create a logical digital filing system and reduce your desktop icons to a select few. By the same token, clear off any sticky notes or reminders from your monitor, as they will only distract you from your work.
