4 Steps To A Happy Workspace
We all need motivation from time to time, especially when it comes to work. The key is to create an inspiring environment that makes you want to get the job done. Whether you’re sitting in a cubical, your home office or a local coffee shop there are small steps you can take to make your space a more creative, happy place.
Step 1: Invest in pretty supplies that you’ll be excited to use. Jot It Down (seen above) is one of my favorite new discoveries. It’s way more fun to take notes with this feather pen and binder ring notepad than with a pencil and notebook. I’m currently using their 2016 agenda and everyday I look forward to writing in it. Cynthia Rowley’s new line of office accessories is a can’t-miss; the file folders and document boxes turn storage into style. This Jonathan Adler docking station is the most stylish way to charge your phone and it makes a great desk accessory.
Step 2: Put on some tunes. If you’re at home or the office, the quiet can be a total creative buzzkill, while the hustle and bustle of a public work space can be distracting. So grab a cute pair of headphones and prepare a few playlists, so you have options depending on your mood.
Step 3: Sit by a window. Natural light, sunshine, a view; all of these things are nothing but positive. Don’t have a window in your office? Try bringing the outside in by putting a vase of flowers on your desk.
Step 4: I’m a big smell person, so I always have a candle lit on my desk. If that isn’t an option, buy a diffuser to put in your space. For candles, I love Simply Curated’s Coconut Shea, Dyptique’s Verveine and the Sugar Candle by Fresh. For diffusers, you can never go wrong with Antica Farmacista. I recommend Manhattan and Prosecco.
