When you enter your office, how do you feel?
Are you immediately overcome with anxiety about how much work you have to do? Does the stress start to build up before you’ve even entered the door? If you can answer yes to either of these last two questions, it might be time for an office revamp.
Creating a peaceful office space with the right ambiance can help you accomplish more and stay focused on your work. The good news is that it also doesn’t have to break the bank! You can get started creating a more relaxing work environment today by following these simple DIY tips.
It’s no secret that a messy workspace can start to make you feel anxious. To create a healthier, more productive office environment, start by getting organized. Back up paper files on your work server to get rid of unnecessary paper clutter and create a filing system to neatly store the paper files you need in your office.
Designate a Relaxation Space
Whether this is a comfy chair in your office or another room in the building, designate a space specifically for relaxation and unwinding. This space is your go-to when you need to escape the office stressors.
Assess Your Technology
If your internet speeds are slowing you down, it might be time to make an upgrade! Look at the equipment and utilities you use daily and weekly to determine if the current performance is holding you back.
Focus on Comfort
To maximize your productivity, you need to be comfortable. Make sure your chair, desk, keyboard and monitor set up isn’t causing you pain.
Inspect Your Lighting
Many people look past the lighting in their office, but it can make a big difference. Try replacing your ceiling fixture for better overhead lighting. To better illuminate your workspace, consider a desk lamp. The Steren Low-Consumption Desktop Lamp with 5 X Magnifying Glass is the perfect companion to your newly improved office space.
Enhance Your Surroundings
With your workspace clean, organized, more functional, comfortable and well lit, it’s time to put the finish touches in place. Add personal elements to your office to make it one of a kind. This can include family photos or other items with sentimental value. To create a more tranquil environment, incorporate plants or even a fountain.
