How To Make “WFH” Work For Your Home

I think we can all agree that we are living in unprecedented times, and we are all having to adjust to a “new normal.” For many of us, that means working from home either full or part-time, and trying to navigate how to do so efficiently.

Change can be hard, and when you are used to a certain work routine and setup, it may feel overwhelming to do your job in absence of that. However, by spending some time cultivating an organized and comfortable workspace in your home, you can create a perfect environment for productivity. Read on for some great tips below!

Dedicated Workspace. Whether you have an entire room as your home office, or just a corner of a room, make sure you have a spot that is dedicated to your work. This will separate your work area from others in your home and instantly help you feel more organized.

Lighting. Try to find a spot that has some natural light, or at least sufficient indoor lighting to illuminate your area. Keeping your workspace light and bright will increase productivity and make you more likely to want to spend time there.

Color Palette.  While you may not want to paint your home office or area, ideally blues, greens, and yellows tend to foster creativity and calm. You can always add home accessories like prints, candles, and throw blankets in these colors to add some ambience.

Greenery. House plants are always a great addition to a home office. Plants are shown to have great benefits, including lowering stress levels and improving air quality. Choose a plant that works best for your environment and is low maintenance.

Simple Décor. Although you want your space to feel decorated and put together, do not go overboard on home décor. Too many knick-knacks and accessories will make it feel cluttered and make you feel distracted. A wall or table clock is a great multi-purpose décor piece, as it can be beautiful and functional at the same time. Throw in an art piece or two, some photos of loved ones and a comfortable chair to make the space feel complete.

What makes you feel productive and happy at your home office? Feel free to share your own tips or photos of your space!
