Home Office Hacks
If you work from home then you will know that the home office is the most important area in the house. Not only do you spend most of your time there, but it's where you have your best ideas and channel productivity. So why is there a basket of laundry in there? And what is with that crazy mismatched furniture?
Keeping an uncluttered, beautiful home office is proven to not only boost our mood and productivity but can actually positively impact on our approach to work. So, isn't it time you made over your home office space?
You can get started by doing the following:
Clutter is bad for the mind as it promotes the feeling that you are behind on your chores, or that there are other things to do. It is incredibly distracting, so remove anything from your workspace that doesn't need to be there. File papers, find a new space for that treadmill and sort out that pile of laundry. We have a number of great office organizers such as the metal wire hanger baskets. These handy little baskets look sleek and will de-clutter any office so you can be more productive.
Choose Productive Colors
Even if you redecorate the whole space, think about surrounding your work area with colors that promote calm and productivity such as blues, greens, and whites. It's proven that these color can increase your mood and calm your mind so you have clearer thoughts.
Get Some Fancy Stationery
Splash out on some matching stationery that you can't wait to use and keep it all neatly organized to encourage you to maintain an orderly space. Having a great pen or pencil to write with is also important for clean notes. And speaking of notes, we have the perfect journal for keeping track of those inspirational thoughts. These Brushed Burlap Craft Notebooks will help keep you inspired and productive.
Sort Out Your Chair
If your office chair is looking a little tired, now might be a good time to give it an overhaul with some new fabric or cushions. Or possibly just splurge for a new one. But don't forget to get something that you want to sit in all day long! This is so important for productivity because being in the right comfortable position can really keep the creative juices flowing!
Upgrading Your Computer Station
