6 Tips for Setting Up an Inspiring Home Office

1) Dedicate a Space: Whether your work area is a separate room, or within a room, create a dedicated workspace that allows you to focus and keep track of your daily tasks. Enjoy “shopping your home” for a piece that can double as a desk.

2) Use Task Lighting: Natural light is best, as most of us love to soak up the sun. But when the sun goes down, make sure that you have both an overhead and a specific task light. A task lamp will keep your eyes healthy and look great too!

3) Pick a Wall Board: Chalk, cork, or dry erase, whichever you choose, a board can help you stay on track. Post your child’s virtual learning schedule or a reminder to join a Zoom meditation session to keep things top of mind. A paper note is a terrific visual reminder to supplement your digital calendar.

4) Sit Right: You may not have the perfect ergonomic chair, but pillows and cushions can go a long way to enhancing your posture and ensuring your comfort.

5) Organize: Keep papers tidy by using a mail organizer, folders, or binders. At the end of each day, make sure you take a few minutes to file away papers and mail. You’ll love how you feel starting your day at an inviting desk! 

6) Make it lovely: A vibrant vase filled with fresh seasonal flowers, a framed photo from a fabulous trip, or a beautiful piece of pottery to corral your pens, stylus, and letter opener–all of these items can help you stay revitalized, and maybe even organized!
