It’s not a surprising fact that the office environment plays a critical role in the way you work, including your level of focus and productivity. In fact, even things like the office layout, the people around your desk, and the air-cond temperature can have an impact on workplace productivity.
Since you are spending about 6-10 hours at the office from Monday to Friday, it's important to create an environment which you are both comfortable and happy to be in. Whether you are working from your home office, co-working space or your corporate headquarters office, here are some easy-to-implement tips and tricks to revamp your work environment to boost your mood and creativity at work.
Personalize Your Space / Desk
Customizing your space and desk to your liking and preference can add a sense of belongingness and a touch of inspiration to an otherwise dull environment. You can start simple by placing a framed picture of your loved ones or favourite quote, a stationery organizer, or even a coffee mug from home - basically anything that gives the space your personal touch. Just one item on the desk can help make it more familiar and motivating.
Organize Your Office Supplies
It’s good to be equipped with all the essential office supplies, and have everything within reach but if it's just laying all over your desk creating a clutter - it will get in the way of your work and affect your productivity. Find the right stationery storage and organizer for your desk to keep everything neat and in place. Check out this Acrylic Pen Holder with Tape Dispenser to get started. Don’t forget about the smaller office supplies like paper clips, thumbtacks, and binder clips as well.
Place a Small Plant at Your Desk
Nothing a little plant can’t fix! Since it symbolizes nature, green is one of the most beautiful and comforting colors that attracts harmonious feelings that can diffuse anxiety and helps you stay calm and refreshed at work. Not only is it an inexpensive and low-maintenance hack, small indoor desk plants are lively, portable, and don’t occupy a lot of space on your desk.
Wear Earplugs or Noise-Canceling Headphones
As much as we love a happening office with friendly colleagues, we sometimes need some peace and quiet to focus and get work done in an efficient manner. So, if your office has an open office layout, chances are the environment is rather noisy and you should consider wearing noise-cancelling headphones. You can even play your favourite Spotify playlist to uplift your mood.
Stimulate Your Senses With a Fresh Smell
For most people, there are certain scents that can calm them down, boost their mood, or generally just improve the working environment. For example, a small air diffuser or a bouquet of flowers can add a nice touch to your space and enhance the mood around it. Just make sure to not choose anything too overpowering so you don’t disturb your office mates.
