Whether you work at home, in an office or in your own study, the workplace is one of the spaces where we spend more time. Since it’s such a significant part of our life and affects our daily lifestyle, this space should be warm and cozy. We’ll give you some keys to make your workplace truly yours so you can work more happily.
Comfort is paramount
The first thing we need to achieve is comfort. In quite a lot of jobs we spend most of our workday sitting in the same space, so it’s essential that it is comfortable – be it for health reasons or to work better and happier. The aspects that influence comfort the most are probably the seat and the lighting. Therefore, we have to choose a chair that adapts to us and that is comfortable through the whole day. At the same time, when we choose our lighting we have to take into account that it should be bright enough to avoid damaging our sight but not so strong as to tire it. On the other hand, if we work with a laptop, we should use a laptop stand to avoid back pain.
The next step is keeping our workspace organized. This way we’ll be more productive, we’ll find what we look for more easily, we’ll be more relaxed, we won’t get unfocused because of the objects we have scattered on the table and, in conclusion, we’ll work better. Using boxes, binders and other containers will help us keep our space neat and organized and can also double as decoration.
Details that make us smile
God is in the details. In order to give our workplace positive vibes we can use little elements that cheer us up every time we see them. Depending on each person, they can be totally different: a touch of color in a gray office, funny supplies, inspirational quotes, plants and a long etcetera. No matter what you choose, the main goal is that it makes your workplace feel like a second home.
