Upgrade Your Workspace From Home!

Date

Working from home is a dream to most, but it comes with its own challenges. Mentally leaving “home mode” and entering “work mode” can be difficult if you never physically leave your house.

To help you get your home office up to par for maximum efficiency, here are some simple things you can do to upgrade your office and create your perfect work environment.

Add More Light

Another hallmark of a happy, productive work environment is a simple soft light desk lamp. A soft glow gives your work environment that warm, cozy feeling that may contribute to a mellower and less stressful home office. Studies have shown that exposure to natural light during the day has positive effects on our mental and physical health, too, so open those blinds and let that light in — your brain will thank you for it.

Get a Small Plant

Plants are more than just pretty decorations. Studies show that being around plants is good for your health — they filter the air and their presence is therapeutic. Plants brighten up and add color to otherwise sterile indoor spaces. If you’re not sure which plant to get, click here to check out our list of “The Best Plants for Your Apartment!”

Organize Your Cables

There’s nothing worse than having a bunch of tangled up cables lying on the floor, particularly when you have to unplug something. Organizing cables isn’t that difficult. You’ll need to unplug everything and untangle those messy cables first, then use hooks and different attachments to make sure the cables run straight from the machines to the sockets.

Get a Whiteboard

Incorporating a whiteboard into your work environment gives you a fun alternative for scratch work and brainstorming ideas that need space to conceptualize. Writing outlines, storyboards, goals, and mantras on whiteboards can be a huge boon for productivity.

Add Personality

Just 5–10 minutes can be enough to let your brain relax, but you need to keep your mind off work and focus it on something fun and pleasurable. Pictures of your loved ones, your first guitar, or a small figurine with a lot of emotional value are just some examples of things that can help put your mind at ease.
