You’ve just landed your dream job and you’re completely and utterly over the moon. It’s the kind of job that you never thought you’d get. You’ve waited a long time to get to this point and to be able to land a role that’s the right fit for you and your career goals.
You love the job but you aren’t super keen on the office space you’ve been assigned. You find it difficult to work there, because it isn’t a space that inspires you or makes you feel motivated to work hard.
If you’re feeling this way, don’t panic – it’s a super common issue, especially post-pandemic when so many of us got used to working from the comfort of home. The good news is that with a few simple changes, you can make your office a space that you actually want to spend time in.
Wondering how you can do that? Below is a guide to some of the simple ways you can transform your office space and turn it into somewhere that actually motivates you.
Ensure your office is the right temperature
If your office space tends to get stuffy, that can impact how productive you are, as stuffy spaces can cause headaches. So, it’s best to think about how you can tackle this kind of issue. Cracking your window (and leaving it cracked) can help to ensure that your office sees a steady, fresh air flow.
Don’t let the sun stream into your office leaving you sweltering, instead look for custom printed blinds online to block the sun out and prevent your office from becoming too hot. If the heat is an issue, add a rotating fan to your office, so that whatever the weather, you’re able to keep cool.
Get your desk layout right
Not a fan of how your desk is laid out? Change it. The fact is, if you’re going to work productively, you need a desk that’s designed with your needs in mind, so take the time to work out how you can reorganize your desk to make it work for you.
This might mean investing in some desktop organization tools, adding a pot plant for a little freshness, or treating yourself to a laptop stand for easier (and more comfortable) working.
Set your desk up in a way that works for you, and you will find getting things done far simpler and easier.
Comfort is key
If you’re going to work in a productive way, you need to be comfortable. So, if you’re not feeling comfortable when sat at your desk, think about how you could make things more comfortable.
Take your office chair, for instance, if it’s not providing you with the right level of support, you need to change that. If you’re not able to have the entire chair replaced, look online for ergonomic back and neck support that can be integrated with your chair for added comfort.
There you have it, a guide to how you can make your office space a better fit for you.
