If your workspace doesn’t support positive and creative thinking, we’ve got you covered! Contrary to popular belief, your surroundings can have a big impact on your mood, emotions, and productivity. When your office space feels boring and lifeless, your employees and customers, not to mention you, may also feel those same vibes. So, we’re going to help you out a little; we have a few tips to share on how to create an enjoyable working environment.
Our first step on this inspiration journey is to organize your working area. We can’t start adding items to an already cluttered space, so take some time to do a thorough clean-up. Throw out the trash, and organize what’s important to your liking. You can use pen holders, trays, baskets, and drawers to organize all of your supplies. If you’re not a very organized person, you can learn to label! Labels are life-savers when trying to find anything you need while at work, so label your baskets, drawers, and files to let you know where everything is. Working in an organized environment does wonders, so keep your space neat and tidy!
Next, we are going to improve your visualization. What do you spend your time looking at? Think of all the things that make you feel relaxed, inspired, and motivated. Then, find a few creative ways to surround yourself with these images. If your happy place is the beach, then, why not hang up a few pictures of your favorite beaches? You can also incorporate colors of the beach into your work space by using baby blue pens, getting coral colored paper clips, or using sea shells as paper weights. Simple ideas like these can really make your working environment feel more like your happy place.
Now, for your nose! Step 3 is all about scents and aromas. What type of scents appeal to you? Different aromas can have numerous different effects on different people. Scents can be calming, invigorating, and fresh smelling, which all can be good motivators while at work! You can make sure your workspace smells inspirational by simply buying a few scented candles. Candles are the perfect way to bring an inviting scent to space since there are so many different scents to choose from. Find the scent that appeals to you most, and let it burn! You’d be amazed by what aromatherapy can do to your overall mood. Here at our studio, everybody loves the aroma of the space because of our candles. Give candles a try, and see how it goes!
Whether you just want a calming environment or a fun and invigoration workspace, it can all be achieved with just a few simple steps! Organize your space to make it one of your happy places! Avoid clutter, add some color and candles, and you’ll feel a whole lot happier at work. We hope you use a few of our ideas and make your workspace an enjoyable place to be!
