With just a bit of work and creativity, you can transform your home office into a space that you feel energized by and enjoy spending time in.
Remove and Declutter
Give yourself permission to declutter your space and remove anything that makes you feel anxious or that you’ve been tolerating but don’t love.
Take time to plan out what you need in your space, then organize it in a way that supports your needs. Arrange your various office furniture (desk, shelves, storage cubbies, etc) so it’s easy to access what you use most frequently.
Keep your office supplies and desk organized as well. You’ll save time, feel more relaxed, and enjoy your office space more when you know exactly where things are.
Artwork to Inspire
Beautiful things on the walls can lift your spirits or serve to keep you centered and focused.
You can often find inexpensive frames at secondhand shops or discount retailers. Just replace what’s in them.
Some ideas for budget-friendly wall decor include:
– your own photography
– artwork by your children
– recycled postcards or calendar pages
– inspirational quotes
Another great way to inspire yourself with wall decor is to create an inexpensive vision board or story board with items and photographs significant to your own personal journey and goals.
Create an Ambiance
Surround yourself with the scents and sounds that help you feel motivated and strong.
Consider these items for your office:
– reed or oil diffusers
– soft music
Bring life into your home office space and you may find it improves your health and productivity. Live plants bring beauty into your space and clean your air. A goldfish (or other fish) can help you relax.
What are you waiting for? Create your home office sanctuary and make your space a place you love.
