With a new job comes a new desk! If I’m going to be spending 40 hours a week somewhere, I should take the time to make it as pleasing as I make my house. I haven’t always done this at past offices, but something clicked recently.
Step #1 is ergonomics, but once that’s set, it’s all about setting up a space that inspires and refreshes. There’s a couple things I’ve noticed about my at home work space that I’d like to replicate once I’m settled into the new office.
1. Personal touches. One of my favorite things about my desk at home is a row of silver framed family photos. When I sit down to work at home, I feel cozy, calm, and recharged. Is it because I have a pretty ironstone teacup by my side, or because my desk cubbies are filled with stacks of things that inspire me? I don’t know, but I’m going to try to keep my office desk organized and cozy!
2. Flowers. I treat myself to flowers at home, but never at work. Why? I spend more time at my work desk than any other single place.
3. Inspiration. I like having a real life pinboard – there’s something about staring at non-screen things to kickstart creativity.
