When I began working from home, it became clear very early on that my current work area needed a serious upgrade. My desk was surrounded by old letters, books and junk, I had piles of clothes on the floor, I kept knicking my partner’s chair because mine had begun to hurt my back and my mouse’s cord was now fraying.
Prior to this, I had put little thought into my work area because I spent so little time in it. At real work, my desk was neat, ordered and always clean at the end of the day, regularly being sprayed over and wiped. I prided myself on my desk’s presentation but it was also because it was more functional to have it cleaned. I could find what I needed. I had an adequate amount of space for my arms. But most of all, it got my into the right frame of mind to do serious work.
You would not have guessed that the person who sat at the desk at work was the same as the one who sat at home. However, as time went on, the mentality of work took over and soon my desk was cleaned. It was a nice feeling. But I realised I was still not well set up for what I wanted to do.
When working from home for long periods of time it’s important to have an appropriate set up. Keeping your desk uncluttered will help your productivity. I have a small desk organiser that orders my books and keeps them accessible. I went on to buy a new set of drawers to place my tablet and other accessories in to help keep my area clear and my tools safe. It also got my candles off my desk, saving me a ton of room.
I invested in a comfortable chair that will serve me for many years. I cannot stress this enough. Make sure you have a good chair! It has made the world of difference! My shoulders and back aren’t nearly as sore even after a full day of work.
As I have been putting together my new workspace, the one aspect I have enjoyed is seeing it all match. I am big fan of pink and guess what? This new set has a lot of it! I feel happier in my workspace now and enjoy sitting in it. Even if the day is stressful, I have a place I am comfortable in with a fruit loops candle on hand. And it makes all the difference!
