5 Ways To Spruce Up An Uninspiring Workspace My Happy Place

If your productivity levels have been flagging, these small changes may help. 

Who doesn’t find it difficult to remain productive and positive at work, especially when your workspace is a boring, grey and lifeless cubicle. Your workspace bores you because there’s nothing inspiring to keep you in a positive state of mind.

Here are 5 simple changes you can make to your your workspace. You’ll be surprised at how a little makeover benefits your mind, body, and soul!

1. Clear Your Space

This is going to be a therapeutic process, I promise. When you work from a clean workspace, you’re less likely to be distracted or overwhelmed. Start by removing clutter. Once that’s done, organise all your work files, papers, and stationery – it’ll help with productivity and efficiency as you’re not always looking for stuff that you need. To ensure your workspace remains tidy, set aside five minutes at the end of each day to clear your workspace. This helps you start each day with less anxiety.

2. Print Some Photos

Whether it’s snapshots from your holidays or photos of your favourite people and pets, add colour to your workspace by displaying these pictures. Not only will it personalise your workspace, seeing photos of your loved ones and happy moments will motivate you whenever you’re having a dreary workday.

3. Flower Power

If there’s anything that can bring life and colour into your workspace, it’s flowers. It’s been proven that being around plants has a calming effect on many people. Flowers don’t have to be expensive either; have some orchids or succulents on your desk as they are cheap, easy to maintain, and can last up to a month!
