When it comes to being organized at your day job, it sometimes seems impossible. Your emails are always overflowing and all you want to do is dream about that cocktail that you will be having later with your friends.

To help with the stresses of everyday work, it really makes sense to try to keep yourself organized with your workflow. I personally love to take Sundays to keep things organized for my week ahead. It sounds crazy, but planning is my brunch. But in addition to planning, there are plenty of ways to keep organized. Here are six ways you can keep yourself leveled and productive.
