Whether you’re at your office or still working from home since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, making sure your workspace is comfortable and organized according to your needs is essential to the success of your work as well as your overall efficiency. That said, there are a few things you can try tweaking in your office area that will definitely make the world’s difference, boost your productivity, and maybe even make you feel more excited about going to work each morning.
Sounds a bit pointless, right? Well, have you ever walked into a garden and felt frustration and anxiety creeping up on you? Exactly. Plants are calming, and studies have shown that the presence of plants can ease negativity and help one think more clearly and positively. Many plants remove toxins from the air and replace it with crips, clean oxygen as well; that’s exactly what you need! Plant species you can definitely have a look at include lavender, snake plant, aloe, and Pothos – all of these little guys will work tirelessly to provide you with the cleanest air while you do your magic on the computer! So get yourself a nifty little pot plant; you’ll have a green and calming element on your desk and feel at ease right away.
Keeping up with the times, experts have designed keyboards that put less strain on your hands, wrists, fingers, and forearms; it sounds bliss! An ergo keyboard is fantastic to invest in if you have a job that requires a lot of typing, ensuring you are more comfortable and efficient all day long. The problem with the usual keyboards is that the keys are laid out flat on the surface, causing you to have to splay your hands and fingers out in unnatural positions that just aren’t necessary. You can choose various designs from, so make sure you pick the one that best fits your style and needs – your hands and wrists will be all too grateful!
Most people have a lot going on on their desks – and the worst part is; everything is crucial! That’s why establishing a system that works best for your method of doing things is essential. You know what they say: “Tidy life, tidy mind.” Agreed, it might be one of the biggest cliches ever, but it’s the truth! Once your workspace is organized and methodical, you’ll feel like you can think more clearly and work even faster. You can set it up whichever way you feel like – whether it’s alphabetical, numerical, or color-schemed, go nuts!
Working hard is one thing, but working smart while working hard will double your results for your efforts and leave you feeling more productive. After all – if you’re going to work your hardest every day, you might as well try and make it as fun as possible too!
