Your environment affects you more than you think and that is why it is so important to make sure that you are surrounded by things that you love. However, this may be hard if you work in an office and sit in a cubicle for 8 hours a day.
I am going to share 8 different ways that you can spruce up your space, whether you work in an office or at home. Let’s begin!
8 Ways To Spruce Up Your Workspace
- Get a plant:
This is one of my favourite things to do to spruce up any space! Adding a pop of green to a room just makes it feel that much more alive. Getting a real plant will also give you an extra little task of watering it which will be a nice productive habit that you can check off your to-list daily.
This is an easy and fairly inexpensive way to spruce up your workspace so try it out! Succulents are a great choice because they don’t need much care and they don’t have pollen.
2. Hang up some pictures or a vision board:
Hang up some pictures of your loved ones, motivational quotes, places that you have travelled to, or places that you want to travel to. I also recommend making a little vision board of things that you want to attract in your life. If you are saving up for a car, print a picture of the car that you want. If you are saving for a trip, print a picture of the country that you want to go to.
This will help you stay motivated throughout your work day and it will help make your cubicle look nicer and less bland! Also, change your desktop screensaver to something that makes you smile.
3. Get a nice calendar:
Get a nice calendar that has either pictures or words that make you happy. Having a calendar hung up is a great way to mark off your days off, holidays, or any other special events. It’s always nice to look forward to special events!
4. Invest in some nice pens or notebooks:
Typically, your work will only offer you very simple pens and notebooks so it’s nice to invest in some higher quality versions! Buying some colourful pens and aesthetically pleasing notebooks will motivate you to want to do your work.
Although this may seem like such a small change, it might affect you greatly!
5. Invest in a mousepad or keyboard cover:
Investing in a fun mousepad design or marble keyboard cover will really spruce up your office space. I got a marble keyboard cover for my laptop and it makes it feel brand new! So if you are sick of looking at your boring computer then spruce up your mousepad and get a nice keyboard cover!
6. Bring a mug and coaster to work:
Bringing a mug and coaster to work will make you feel more comfortable and more at home. Every time you want a coffee or tea you can fill up your favourite mug and feel happier. It will also spruce up your office space since it sits on your desk all day.
7. Get a lamp:
If the lighting in your cubicle sucks, then bring in a lamp. This doesn’t need to be super expensive but good lighting can really liven up your office space and make you work better!
8. Get a day-to-day calendar:
Get a themed calendar such as “You are bad ass day-to-day calendar” or “A Happier 2018 Page-A-Day calendar” by Gretchen Rubin. They are both great options for daily calendars! I have one on my desk and it is fun to read a page every single day.
Those are 8 of my favourite ways to spruce up your office space, whether you work in an office or at home. Let me know how you like to decorate your workspace!
