Some people have been working from home for years, while others have had to adjust to the home office lifestyle over the past year! If you are someone who is still adjusting, and you haven’t yet created your dream home office space, here are some tips to get you started!

Invest in a good office chair. You’ll want something comfortable, yet supportive. You may want to consider something that has multiple adjustments to ensure it fits just right! Your back will thank you.

Organize your essentials and keep them within reach. In order to stay productive, organization is key. You may find yourself getting distracted if you need to get up and out of your chair every few minutes to grab a pen, sticky note or stapler. Make sure things are close, and have their own space!

Decorate, decorate, decorate. Pick a colour or theme that makes you happy and decorate your office accordingly. There’s no reason your office should be boring and bland. Make it fun - this will help your brain feel more creative!

If possible, ensure your desk has a view. Avoid having your desk face a blank wall. Natural light does wonders for your body in keeping you awake and focused.

Upgrade your lighting. LED bulbs or halogens are better for your eyes for long periods of time. Ditch those fluorescent lights and try to get as much natural light as possible.

Inspire yourself. Create a small space to put items such as photos, trinkets, or art pieces that motivate you and help you remember your WHY. This will help you get your work done in an orderly fashion & help you remember why you work so hard to create the life you want.

Can’t wait to create my own office space this summer! I’ll keep you posted with how it turns out.
