You don’t need to wait for spring to clean up clutter in your life, but it is as good a time as any to rid yourself of clutter and stress and make room for a better work/life balance. Even if you never get to your closets, consider tidying your work space, clearing your in-box and changing your habits to work and live smarter.

To boost your efforts, I’ve asked the experts for tips that are worth the effort:

Physical work space: The layout of your office or cubicle space and the flow it creates plays a huge role in your mood, productivity and ability to juggle demands.
