6 ways to create an inspiring workspace for 2019!

 

If you’re like the rest of us, your probably back at work and reading this from your desk. Welcome to 2019! But come on it’s not all bad, this is your year, right? Most of us start the year with positivity and goals, how you work and where you work can have a huge impact on realising those goals. To help keep your well being and mind on track, consider investing in your workspace.

Studies from all over the world have shown the correlation between beautiful workspaces and job productivity. From green spaces to lighting and ergonomics, here are some simple steps you can take to create your own inspiring workspace.

 

1. Natural Light. Where ever possible and we realise this can be a tough one in some offices, try and steel the light. Daylighting has been associated with higher productivity, lower absenteeism, fewer errors or defects in products, positive attitudes, reduced fatigue, and reduced eyestrain. So, swap, trade or bribe Betty or Paul to trade for that desk near the window.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Another reason to trade for that window desk is the view. “Longer distance views, away from computer screens or written documents, allow the eyes to adjust and re-focus, which reduces fatigue, headaches and the effects of eye strain in the long term. Views also have a positive impact on wellbeing, in part by providing a psychological connection with other groups of people while in a safe space,” states a report from the World Green Building Council. So even if your looking out on a carpark, a room with a view can help.

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Go Green or Go Home! Well I know we all wish we could just go home, but alas… Bring in your favourite plant. Sorry no palm trees allowed. Try out some small succulents or other small low maintenance indoor plants for your workspace. New research from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) has found strong evidence supporting the benefits of office plants for reducing stress and negative mood states in office workers. Plants were found to promote wellbeing, and therefore, potentially performance. Staff who had plants placed in their offices showed reductions in stress levels and negative feelings of a magnitude of 30 to 60%, while those with no plants recorded increases in stress and negativity of 20 to 40%, over the 3-month test period. Importantly, just one office plant was enough to make all the difference.

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Furniture Matters! If you have the luxury of your own space, splurge on that beautiful desk, never skimp on an ergonomic chair and make that space your own. Where ever possible, create a comfortable work space with your own style. Remember to keep it tasteful though, this is not your living room. Your office represents you as a professional, so always keep that in mind.

 

 

 

 

 

 

5.Keep it clean. We all know there is method to our madness, but by keeping your office clean and organised it can help with positive energy. Piles of documents and mess can lead to feelings off stress and being weighed down by the constant feeling of keeping up. A good practice is to take 10 minutes at either the beginning or end of your day to clear your desk. Starting your day with a fresh clean slate.

 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6.Motivation Boards and we are not talking about those dreadful 1980 office prints about team work! Try hanging pictures that motivate you in your office, whether it be the tropical destination your working towards or a pinboard of things that inspire you. Fill your walls with things that you love and inspire you. Visually seeing the things, you are working towards can help with motivation and change it up! Try rotating pictures throughout the year, remind yourself that things are forever changing… who knows what’s just around the corner.
