Create your workspace haven
For people who are working from home, we know that in these challenging times, adaptation is key and finding a new space to concentrate and work can be a hassle. For some, it may feel impossible to find a zone for yourself, for others their home workspace distracts them. Here is how you can create your Workspace Haven.
First things first, decide which room to use. This could be your bedroom, living room or kitchen. Find out which room helps you concentrate best. This means as little distraction as possible. Once you have decided your best workspace you are more likely to focus and work well. You will need to make it feel like an office by having your stationery, books, files and other work related items at close proximity to you to minimize procrastination.
Secondly, invest in some office accessories. It is important to take care of your physical well being and by creating a pleasant setting it will help you concentrate better. We suggest a laptop stand to stop crunching, back support on your chair, light filter for your screen. These are a few examples to help make your office space bearable.
We understand that not everyone can have their private space, so it's good to set visual boundaries for others to see it is time to work. This could be a sign with a message (Do Not Disturb or Zoom meeting in Progress) or a motivational poster to keep you focused.
Finally, you can't call it a haven without the personalised touch. Adding a blanket or throw can help get rid of a cold office environment , and make sure your home office space is adequately heated and ventilated. And don't forget to have some nearby snacks on hand to keep your energy levels !
