Up until now working from home has often been viewed as a luxury or life style choice but now due to the coronavirus many of us have been thrown into home working, whether we were ready for it or not.
So how can you make the most of working from home? Well for starters enjoy the short commute, have some extra time in bed, a walk to start your day, that extra cup of coffee or just enjoy being in your pyjamas a bit longer than usual. But to be productive making your space a place you want to spend time is important too and you don’t have to spend lots and lots of money to make it your own. Just adding a few of your own touches can make a huge difference.
If you like bright colours then why not brighten up your work space – who says an office has to be boring anyway?!
Or if you want to go for a more neutral workspace then maybe a boho feel will be more to your liking.
Plants or green walls are popular in larger offices. So why not have your own version at home? They can increase oxygen and airflow, making the immediate surroundings feel fresher and more breathable. They can also be a great source of stress relief.
What if you don’t have a dedicated room that you can use as an office? Don’t despair! There are ways of making tiny spaces work for you too!
Changing a nook into a home office or utilising a cupboard, are two ways to transform an existing space into a workplace just for you. It’s also a great way parents can balance working from home with home schooling their children.
There are so many ways to create a work space that works for you whether you have a dedicated room or not. Whether you’re using your space to set up a side hustle, or just for working through COVID-19, having a dedicated place for you to work is crucial for productivity, and it also helps keep our work life separate to our personal life but don’t forget to enjoy some time to yourself too – having your own space doesn’t just have to be all about work!
