3 Simple Steps To Make Your Desk Your Happy Place

Posted by Ryan Owens on Nov 20th 2014

Whether you work from home or commute to an office, if work keeps you desk-bound, you know the influence your work space exerts on your creativity and productivity throughout the day. This is why all our products from our office desk furniture to our folding chairs are ergonomically accommodating. Below are a few suggestions to help you create and enjoy a more dynamic work environment.

Own Your Space

It’s your own little corner of the working world, so make sure everyone else knows it. Put up pictures of your family or pets or your last vacation. Got a special quote that gets you through the day? Give it a prominent place on your desk or wall. It’s good to be reminded that you have a life outside of work that is waiting for you at the end of the day.

Create Boundaries

It’s a good idea to personalize your space and to draw inspiration from that, but be careful not to overdo it. Whether you’re working alone on your kitchen table or at the office with your co-workers, your mindset needs to be focused on doing your job. Make sure your work space allows you to accomplish this by eliminating distractions as much as possible.

Set up adequate lighting at your work station. Wear earphones if you have a desk next to someone who talks too loudly for your comfort. Don’t keep a stash of snacks in your desk drawer if knowing they’re there distracts you. In order for your desk to be your happy place, it has to allow you to do your work well.

Switch Things Around

Treat your desk to a seasonal revamp to keep your spirits up and your creativity running high. Seeing the same things day in and day out can dull your senses, even if your dog is hopelessly cute in the picture you have of her on your wall. Change can give your office productivity a boost, so go ahead and replace your favorite quote with a funny knock-knock joke or a bit of ancient wisdom. It may be just what you need to make it to the end of the week.
