There’s nothing worse than working, looking at nothing but a white, blank wall. There’s no life, no movement. Now, compare this to a space that has colour, photos, and inspirational quotes. It changes your mood, mindset, and productivity. Create life around your office desks to motivate and inspire you.
Jazz up your ‘second home’, especially if you’re pulling long hours and working into the early night. Turn your space into an extension of your home office – one that’s creatively designed.
Tips on personalising your workspace
Personalising the environment you work in helps support you emotionally. Being surrounded by similar things makes you feel comfortable and helps you stay accountable. If you’re having a tough day, looking at a photo of your family or a trinket from that trip to Italy can remind you why you’re doing this.
Think about the things that inspire you most in life. What gets you out of bed? Add little reminders around your workspace to keep you productive and in line with your life’s purpose. Don’t forget to include colour. It does wonders for your motivation levels.
Here are five ideas to add life to your desk area:
1. Photo frames
Can you think of anything better to put in your space than photos of the people who you hold the closest? These are your people, the driving force behind what you do. Spend every day with them, around you at work.
Give yourself flowers and add greenery around your desk. It’ll wake up the space and make you feel more in tune with the outdoors.
Did you go antiquing or market shopping on the weekend? Found a cute little trinket? Maybe you have a bag full of travel trinkets that you don’t have room for at home. Even if you do, bring a few into the office and motivate yourself for the next trip you’ll take – or use them as reminders to spark those sweet memories.
4. Motivation quotes
If you have a saying that you love or just channel a lot of positive energy from words, add a couple of motivational quotes to your area. Words are powerful.
5. Cushions, rugs & blankets
Make this space even more homely by putting a cute little rug under your desk. If it gets cold, reach for a blanket that’s folded and hanging over the back of your chair. Stay comfortable and introduce extra colour by adding a cushion to the chair, too.
Ready to upgrade your office desks?
Whether you’re an employee or a business owner, encourage the use of space. Turn your desk area into an environment that reflects your personality, motivates you, and celebrates individuality. With more offices loosening the belt and transforming into fluid, flexible spaces, this is one simple way to achieve this.
You’ll see an improvement in the energy in the office. And, this is something extremely valuable that’s often overlooked.
