Sometimes we need a little motivation to get us through the working day. Today, I’m going to focus on office working. When I write my blog posts, I need to feel motivated and that really helps my productivity. Sometimes we get into a negative mindset and can’t work as productivity. Here’s some little tips to help.
Change Of Scenery
Have you ever thought of working in a different place for some of the day? Maybe switch desks with a colleague for the day or work in a different room of your home.
Desk Near The Window
I love to work at the desk near the window. I just love the natural light and feeling warm from the sunshine. It really helps me stay positive and gives me a sense of “space” as I can look out and breathe in the air if the window is open.
Music is a debatable one, but I find if I am doing a repetitive task such as editing photos etc. I find music really useful. It instantly lifts my mood. If you find it distracting, try listening to a track whilst taking a tea break or take 5 minutes to have a silly dance break around the room. I listen from anything from classical to pop and it really helps me not feel too lonely. A lot of my work (even teaching) can feel very lonely. I also love to play music on my commute to work in the car.
Buy Some Different Snacks
Having some different snacks from brands you have not tried before are a great incentive to work hard for. Keep your energy levels up with healthy brands. There are SO many delicious snacks out there that are not unhealthy. I love snacks from my SourcedBox. Otherwise, I can recommend buying some from The Vegan Kind, Planet Organic, Holland & Barrett and even supermarkets.
Make Your Desk Pretty
If your desk is aesthetically pleasing, then you are more likely to get excited about it. I am in the process of decorating our desk and I intend to fill it with cute plants, decorations and lots of copper and pastel stationery. Stationery can be so uplifting and really make you get excited about working.
