*Sort Your Catch-All Drawer: Use drawer dividers to give everything a place, lie compartments for paperclips and rubber-bands. Go through the drawer every six weeks and clear out anything that is out of place or isn't being used.
*Eliminate Digital Clutter: Digital clutter can be just as stressful as physical clutter. Organize digital files and your email inbox just as you would paper files with a system of logical and clearly labeled folders. Also, keep the icons on your desktop to a bare minimum, and trade in sticky notes on your monitor for calendar reminders.
