The concept of “home office” becomes a part of our work life. Nowadays, many people in Australia are working from home not only because they are in lockdown but also the advancement of technology makes it possible for people to get their job done from the comfort of their home. It is also a greener option that reduces the carbon-emission rates as it implies reduction of the daily commute for thousands of people.
With the increasing number of people working from home, we now realize the importance of our physical surroundings at home. We don’t really get to choose what is included in our offices, labs, or in other work spaces, as they are “formal work areas”. However, when our homes become our workplace, then yes! We get the opportunity to organize it in a way that will support our health and productivity.
Making your home-office personal plays an important role in keeping your motivations up and making the space more relatable. Reassess your needs and what you actually have in the space. Clean, clear, and redecorate! Decluttered, quiet and a minimal interior that is devoted to work helps you concentrate better.
Office redecoration/make-over doesn’t have to be a big project really; it is more about looking at your space with fresh eyes and seeing what serves your emerging needs and what doesn’t. Identify what gives you inspiration and what drains your energy.
