Workspace Fixes For Huge Success
Whether you work from home, in a co-working space, or in an office that you have rented out, making sure you’re working in a place that suits your work is a must. While you work, you should feel creative, productive, and have a great sense of wellbeing. Unfortunately, this is not what everybody feels while they are trying to get things done. Below, we’ll go through a few workspace fixes that could mean huge success for you! Take a look and see what you can do…
Look At The Psychology Of Color
Make sure you look at the psychology of color so you can use the right ones in your workspace. In an ideal world, you want these colors to inspire you. Colors like blue are great for tranquility, while yellow and orange are fantastic for improved mood. By reading up on the psychology of color, you can make sure you use the perfect colors in your workspace.
Include Ergonomic Furniture
Rather than going for furniture that looks great, you should go for furniture that will reduce your risk of injury and becoming uncomfortable. If you’re going to be sitting for a long time, make sure your chair is super comfortable and can be adjusted. Having an adjustable desk, or even a stand/sit desk can be a great help, too.
Make Sure Things Are As Safe As Possible
You want your workspace to be as safe as possible, although this will depend entirely on what you do and where you work. For example, having simple alarms installed can help in pretty much any workspace, so take a look at this fire alarm and maintenance guide. Then there are things like CCTV, which you might want if you work in a place where a lot of equipment and/or money is stored on site. Keeping things safe will give you peace of mind and ensure that nothing untoward happens to your livelihood.
Include Live Plants
Live plants have been proven to improve mood, and can even clean the air of your workspace. They don’t just sit around looking pretty! The below plants are just an idea of a few that are easy to care for:
- Rubber tree
- Corn plants
- English Ivy
Incorporate Things That Help You To Stay Focused
Make sure you incorporate some decor elements and other things that help you to stay focused as you work. A dream or vision board can be great, as it’s a wonderful reminder of your ‘why’.
Keep Things Organized
Make sure you keep things organized to stop clutter from taking you out of the ‘zone.’ Having dedicated storage space is a must. Storing important paper documents on the cloud can be a better idea than keeping them physically though, as finding them will be easier and you’ll have them wherever you go.
Ensure Proper Lighting
Natural light is immensely helpful for productivity. Make sure any other light fixtures you include do the same!
Have An Area Where You Can Take A Break
Taking breaks is essential. We can only work for around 90-120 minutes before needing a break. Have a dedicated area where you can go.
