Hey there! Victoria here from Clean and Sassy. As a small business owner I've created a personalized office space to encourage effectiveness, collaboration and idea generation. An office can impact yourself and your employees' performance, mood and efficiency. In fact, "Research by Exeter University’s School of Psychology found that employees who have control over the design and layout of their workspace are not only happier and healthier -- they’re also up to 32% more productive." So, in honor of Spring Cleaning, I'm sharing all things inspirational to help promote productivity in the office whether you're at home or in a business setting.
"Wherever you are, be all there!"
In the days I spent working in a professional office, I always had to bring a touch of who I am to work because it helped me get through the day and more importantly, it made me want to be there. It's certainly not easy if you can't surround yourself with the things you love. Daily reminders are a reflection of your productivity, attitude and well being. Remember the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words!?" It's also something very simple yet, makes a huge difference. Add your favorite photos to your desk if you can. I wasn't able to bring photos of my family but I printed out a saying like this and tacked it on the board in our office.
Anything to make you smile deserves to be there. The littlest things will do that.
Here's some tips to allow you to become more productive in your work environment:
Make sure you have your days well balanced. For many individuals, mornings are more productive than afternoons because you may feel sluggish after lunch. Schedule meetings, prepare a fresh pot of coffee, have afternoon team huddles, capture photos, take a break and then get back to what needs to be done for the day.
A productive day in the office translates into a nice evening at home with a reflection of a job well done. So remember, "Wherever you are, be all there!" And if something doesn't get done today, there's always tomorrow.
