Our homes are our havens, and we can truly do whatever we want in them.
They’re both the best places to kick back and relax, and also to get as many of our tasks done, including work.
If you find it hard to be efficient at home, and you’re the kind of person who has already tried every mindfulness plan out there to try and get your work done in a more timely manner, your time has come.You see, there’s usually nothing better than a change of scenery to try and get your creative juices flowing.
Here are the tips to get that going in your very own home!
Paint Your Walls
Painting your walls can lead to some dramatic changes in how you feel about the room you work in. So first of all, designate a room you want to set your laptop or canvas up in, and then buy some paint to redecorate. Colours can have a huge impact on how we feel!
Colours like blue and green are quite calming, and keep us awake when our eyes register them. If you don’t particularly like the work you’ve got to get done, or you stress a lot about your tasks and how much time they take, try these colours. Or you can go for oranges, reds, and pinks to inspire a bit more creativity in your mind. These colours are all about passion after all!
Change the Lighting
If you change your lighting, you’re going to notice a marked improvement in how your eyes work and how you feel about the desk in front of you. So turn off those overhead lights and open the curtains/windows to let in as much natural light as possible.
When you have natural light on your side, you’re going to feel a lot more energised about your work. This works in all the rooms in your house, so let the sun in.
Even Get an Office Fitted!
If you’ve saved up some pennies, and you know the investment would pay off with how much time you’d love to spend in it, fitting an office into your house might just be the best solution. It’ll also free up some space in the rest of your house, making sure you get some good sleep at night in your bedroom, as well as making sure the living room is the place you’re able to paint your nails and have a good chat with your friends.
Look into some home renovations to make this easier on you, and also to get the best price you can for the work you want to be done. Of course, you can try putting some shelves up yourself, but try to keep the DIY to a minimum. Trying to install something yourself doesn’t tend to go well unless you absolutely know what you’re doing!
Now’s the time to renew your office, bedroom, or living room to make yourself more productive!
