How to make your workstation more livable.
Updated: Jan 2
We spend most of our time at a workstation. At least 8 hours. More if you like $$. Your workstation is like a second home. And you know the old saying " Turn your house into a home!"
I used to have a saying when it came to supplies for work., “ if they ain’t supplying it I ain’t buying it”. However, I soon realized that this is not progressive. If you see yourself Staying long term at a job then it is best to buy tools that will help you succeed.
Buy a stand that will organize folders. Purchase a wireless charger: One that you can leave at work. Purchase notebooks, and Lysol wipes
And if you work from home or are an entrepreneur it is even more imperative that you equip yourself with the right tools. Why? Because the things at your desk should increase your productive work and maximize your value!
Get cozy As we said, your work station is where you spend the most amount of time. So, it’s a good idea to bring some of the comforts of home and make your workstation welcoming. I brought a blanket from home and leave will leave a cardigan at my desk for when it‘s cold. Speak to H.R about bringing in a small heater to keep warm. And make sure to have family photos. Adding photos to my desk kept me motivated when I felt down. You can tape them to your computer or place them in fancy frames.
Other things you can add • Bring your favorite snacks • Buy forks, spoons, and knives • Have decorative work like a candle, a cute pencil holder, stapler or plant.
Try adding a pop of color or personality to your desk. A dull or drab workstation lowers your expectations. So don’t feel afraid to be more you while at work. You may even find that people are more drawn to you now because you’re adding value to yourself and your workstation. I will leave you with the quote " Joy, feeling one's own value, being appreciated and loved by others, feeling useful and capable of production are all factors of enormous value for the human soul". -Maria Montessori
