Minimalist Workspace: Easy Tips for Organizing a Zen Desk & Office

Even though I’m a full time yoga teacher, I spend almost all of my time in front of a computer. Running my online yoga teacher training, this YouTube channel and my Uplifted online yoga community.. So having a Zen Minimalist Workspace where I feel that I can be calm, mindful and get stuff done efficiently is critical. Today, I’m gonna give you a tour of my office with all my tips so you can create a Zen minimalist workspace at home.

    My desk at work sometimes gets a bit cluttered and I can live with it for a certain period, but there comes a point where I think, “I don’t care how busy I am, I can’t think until I’ve tidied my desk”. Your office is lovely and gave me some ideas, but I won’t be putting books in drawers because I just love them so much. For me books “spark joy” even when they’re on a dull topic (as long as it’s a topic that is useful). I’m always trying to arrange them so that they’re as tidy as possible and in an order that makes sense to me, but always visible.

    Hi Brett! Thanks for sharing this! Do you have links to the items that you purchased for your space?

  17. Shannon Czerwinski on July 31, 2022 at 1:38 am

    Thanks for the tips! I especially love the hiding and getting rid of papers! I’m writing my thesis For hard school and easily get distracted so this video was very helpful. Getting rid of the paper folders into a drawer will help out my desk situation. Thanks so much Brett! Namaste.🙏🏼😘

  18. Jane B on July 31, 2022 at 1:39 am

    Great Tips Brett, thank you! I have two book shelves in my living room that my husband mainly uses and I’ve grown to hate them, unless you keep the books stack neatly, it makes the room look cluttered to your point.

  19. Paula Collins on July 31, 2022 at 1:42 am

    Thank you. Love it! Namaste.

  20. Olga Baeva on July 31, 2022 at 1:43 am

  22. Karolína Pěnkavová on July 31, 2022 at 1:46 am

    Great Tips Brett. I would try to incorporate them to my life. Thanks a lot. Especially with sorting documents or throw them out immediately or scan them directly to the Dropbox folder.

  24. Jo (Spice) Blackwood on July 31, 2022 at 1:47 am

  31. Good Medicine on July 31, 2022 at 1:52 am

    YES!Aloha Brett, Since stumbling onto you when I availed of the $1 a month Trial subscription of FMTV, (I’m sure I won’t be the first to say so, but..)Something in your Be-ing just captivated me. I only saw ONE vide of you .. (Fascia yoga)!!!Confession: I didn’t even become an exemplary yogini, as I only began doing it with you the one time.But I knew .. (sorry if that sounds creepy?!?) ..simply felt a resonance with the strong, focused, loving woman (siStar??!) there. I loved what FMTV offers, but had to let it go for now. Couple weeks later I remembered your Light, and found you on YouTube. Wow!!! Check in you out on your own did not disappoint; what a lot of love you pour into your work/passion.I know you have a baby now so Welcome to earth, wee one, & welcome to Motherhood, precious Sister!Signed up for your making list didn’t I? And guilty of just not opening emails (so many, frm so many other amazing beings on the planet at present), when I did finally clic on a link it was for this one.And then it was just an uninvestigated open tab on my device here for…..em..weeks.. Maybe two weeks.(Can see why this particular video/topic grabbed me to begin with tho)Finally. Tonight, I view.Afterward, type.Copiously.Have you ever had that feeling, of appreciating so much the essence of someone you don’t even personally know..Being aware of a wonderful empathic alignment with someone, of receiving tangible love from this persona on a screen, that you just desire to share likewise transparently what it means to you?Well, all I can say is Go raibh maith agat (THANK YOU)! Slán agus Beannacht. Blessings and goodbye for now… XPeneleapaí

  32. Lilith on July 31, 2022 at 1:52 am

    I really like the idea of having a vertical altar! I’m gonna incorporate this in my future yoga space ♥

    Also, isn’t it hard to find books if stored like this? I really like the tip for feeling clutter free but I feel like it’s not easy to access the right book. Maybe it’s just because they’re not stored vertically ^^ Plus I imagine that when it’s your own books it’s easier to know which is which 😀
    Anyways, rant over!

    Thank you for the tips! I’m going to keep them in my for when I move 🙂

  33. commspro1 on July 31, 2022 at 1:53 am

    Zen indeed — inspirational as always! Namaste. <3

  34. BeyondGrave on July 31, 2022 at 1:53 am

    What a clean environment! Thanks for the tips! I have very limited space at home so I tried to be very minimal with all the things to keep it clutter-free. Thanks for the very nice idea!

  35. Le Ricette di Cle on July 31, 2022 at 1:55 am

    Clever idea having the make up station nearby the workplace. I often skip make up but it would be a nice pause from work from time to time! I will do that!

  38. Sally on July 31, 2022 at 1:57 am

    Yes! Loved this……and your calm soothing voice 🙂

  39. Stephanie L on July 31, 2022 at 1:58 am

    Namaste! Love your lifestyle videos! Plz keep them coming. 🙂

  40. Veronika Lindberg on July 31, 2022 at 1:58 am

    I LOVED this video Brett and the timing is super good for me. I just started a new job and now that my predecessor quit (I shadowed her for a while) I’ve started to declutter the workspace. Not done yet, I’m allowed to do changes as I see fit by the boss. But at the same time she is used to how it used to be, and doesn’t understand why I want to change it "so radically". She also uses that workspace at times, but it’s considered MY desk now 😉
    By the way all of your energy feels so different! You are so much more grounded, simply a different person. You are a mom now 😀
    Also where did you find your altar shelf? And what diffusser do you use?
    Lots of love :*

    Where did you get the dud player

  42. amandaoutside on July 31, 2022 at 1:59 am

    The state of my mind is almost always reflected in my living space. When I’m feeling anxious or scattered, my apartment is usually a mess! I’ve found that cleaning up my space or simply making my bed does wonders for my mind! Thanks for sharing!

  43. cantor on July 31, 2022 at 1:59 am

    Love the video. Just wondering if you knew that your routing number was visible on the checks

  45. Jo (Spice) Blackwood on July 31, 2022 at 2:04 am

    Hi just discover your Channel. Your desk and your office so clean and organized. Also Yes I really enjoy this video. Can you help me be flexible in yoga Please.? ☺

  48. Bridget Kat on July 31, 2022 at 2:08 am

    Love this! I need to start doing the drop box scanner thing for my documents to save. Another reason to store books in cupboards is to keep dust from accumulating in the room. Great tip if you have allergies!

  49. Yunior Gamboa on July 31, 2022 at 2:08 am

    Lovely video
    Thanks for the inspiration
