How Effective is Your Office Space?

If you have been working remotely for any length of time, you will already realise the importance of an effective and productive home office space. If you are looking for some pointers on creating a more practical office, I have got you covered! Let’s get started.

Clear the Clutter

Clutter doesn’t add to a very productive workspace so if your office is more cluttered and chaotic than calm and collected, it’s time to do something about it. Excessive clutter can make a big impact on your focus, stress levels and ultimately your productive output. Clear anything you don’t need from your office and start as you mean to go on.

Invest in Quality

If you have the means and your office situation will remain the same for the foreseeable future, it’s an excellent idea to invest in some specialist ergonomic furniture which will ease the pressure on your joints and posture and reduce the risk of repetitive strain injuries over time. Ergonomic furniture will provide you with comfort and help you stay focused for longer.

Keep Everything Close

There is nothing more annoying than getting in the zone and then having to move to reach that all important document or office gadget. If possible, try to keep everything you need throughout your workday within easy reach to avoid you having to keep getting up and getting distracted.

Maximise Light

The right light can revitalise a dull and unproductive workspace! If possible, try to have your desk next to as much natural light as possible: preferably near a window. If this is impossible, try daylight bulbs or a lamp to recreate the effect of daylight. Natural daylight will boost your energy levels, help increase productivity and reduce lethargy.

Don’t Wait for Perfection

The last thing to remember is don’t wait until your office is perfect before you use it as you might never achieve perfect. Use what you have, improvise if necessary and enjoy the space you have. Another imperfect aspect of working from home could be a lack of work/life balance. If you need some more help with this, check out my blog here.
