5 Ways to Freshen Up Your Workspace
Spring has sprung! And it’s the perfect time to freshen up your workspace.
Think about it, all the hours we spend a week sitting (or standing) at our desk. We all know how important it is to be comfortable and ergonomically set up at work, but often we forget it is also important to be inspired. By adding some fresh touches to your workspace this spring you can brighten up your space and improve your mood, creativity, and productivity. Here are 5 ways to freshen up your workspace.
1. Get Organized
The easiest way to freshen up your space is to get organized. Cleaning your desk (and inside those drawers) will inspire you to maintain a clear workspace. Not only will you end your day with a sense of accomplishment, you will also have a clean slate the next morning when you return. Pro tip: A Monitor Arm will raise your monitor up off your desk and give you even more space!
2. Add a Pop of Colour
Consider adding a plant or some desk accessories like a Fellowes Mouse Pad to add a pop of colour to your workstation. You can also get creative with stationery or add a bright coloured wall calendar. Don’t forget about colour psychology. Think yellow for clarity, red for excitement, purple for creativity, or green for peace.
3. Rearrange Your Space
How long has it been since you have rearranged your workspace? Changing your view can change your perspective. Consider moving your desk around, adding a, or mirrors to change the vibe of your space. Have fun while you are rearranging and follow what feels fresh and exciting.
4. Surround Yourself With Things You Love
Just because you’re in the office doesn’t mean it has to be all work and no play. Consider surrounding yourself with photos of your family, inspiring quotes, or beautiful things that you love. Even something simple like fresh flowers, or a photo of your dog’s adorable face, can help improve your mood and help to relax you.
5. Treat Yourself to Something New
Go ahead, you deserve it! When you think of how many hours you spend at your desk you can spare some of that hard earned paycheck to treat yourself. Why not try out some seating alternatives like a new ball chair, or kneeling chair? Or maybe try out a vertical mouse or a document holder. Bonus: Switching up the way you work reaps huge ergonomic benefits.
