These days, many of us find ourselves spending most of our waking hours in front of a computer working remotely from our home workspaces. That’s why it’s so important to surround yourself with an environment that is inspiring and meaningful to you. Creating a happy place that motivates you can lead to great energy boosters like increased productivity, better morale and a happier state of mind!
Check out our list of 7 ways to personalize your workspace for a productive and happy work environment:
1. Add greenery
Plants are an easy and beautiful way to improve the look of your home office. Many indoor plants even improve air quality too. Some workspace plants to consider are succulents, jade, English ivy and ferns.
2. Frame it
Print some of your favorite photos and dress them up with a picture frame that shows off your style. We love tasteful simple frames that don’t distract from the image.
3. Wall Art
Dress up your workspace walls with art that inspires you and keeps your creative juices flowing. It can be a photograph you’ve taken, a favorite print or maybe a lovely painting that you admire.
4. Inspiring Supplies
Complete your workspace with the perfect assortment of office supplies, from a pack of colorful pens, the perfect notebook, daily planner, to sticky notes to help you keep on track of your daily tasks.
5. Tech it Up
Adding technology to your workspace can add both function and design to your desk. Many of us working remotely find the need for headphones. Jazz your desk up with your favorite pair. The tangle of cords and wires could also get distracting so look for cable ties or organizers to keep everything in line.
6. Pops of Color
Adding color to your workspace can be a great way to break out from neutral spaces. Additions like small area rugs,
interesting bins, organizers, or maybe even a new window treatment are all ways to really spruce up a workspace. We recommend using blues, greens and greys for a calming and tranquil home office.
7. Keep it Healthy
Sitting in front of your computer all day is tough on your health. Find a chair that is comfortable and supportive. Maybe switch up part of the day with a yoga ball as a seat. Some people find other creative ways to work, like a makeshift treadmill desk or a standing desk. Find the right setup for you!
