Let’s face it, working at a desk is something we spend a lot of time doing, especially these days as 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 8 ways to personalize your workspace for a productive and happy space:
1: Add Greenery
Plants are an easy and beautiful way to improve the look of your home office. Breath in some fresh air and go green! Some workspace plants to consider:
2: Picture Perfect
Print some of your favorite photos and dress them up with a picture frame that shows off your style. I love tasteful simple frames that don’t distract from the image.
Find things that make you happy and add them to your workspace. I enjoy having my favorite flower tumbler by my side all day. It’s a great reminder to drink water, plus it’s a design that makes me happy and reminds me of all the beautiful flowers in my yard.
Find inspiration in the hobbies you enjoy. If you run races, have a book on your desk with your racing numbers, or perhaps the medal you won from a hard-earned race may be just the inspiration you need to keep you motivated throughout the day.
4: Wall Art
Dress up your workspace walls with art that inspires you. It can be a photograph you’ve taken, a favorite print or maybe a lovely painting that you admire.
5: Inspiring Supplies
Complete your workspace with the perfect assortment of inspired 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.
6: 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.
7: 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.
8: Keep it Healthy
Sitting in front of your computer all day is tough on your health. Finding creative ways to help keep you healthy go a long way. 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!
