<p>We asked Jemma to tell us a bit about why making a decluttered workspace was important to her. </p> <p>"Having an organised and relaxing workspace is incredibly important to me. Not only does it help with productivity and keeping a clear mind, but it makes work more enjoyable. Give yourself enough space, with a few personal items that bring you joy. This is proven to improve wellness and allows you to maintain focus for a longer period of time. I hope you enjoy creating a little oasis of calm in your own home."</p> <p>Another top tip for organising your day is to use a planner - you can download our printable home planner below.
