Career Advice

You spend a lot of time at your desk. So ask yourself this one question: is it a happy space? If the answer isn’t a resounding YES then you have some work to do. Here are a handful of ways you can brighten up your workspace and make it a more welcoming, productive place.

  1. Add a plant: A little bit of greenery can be calming and clarifying, especially when you’re stuck inside all day. Try a snake plant, an aloe plant, or one of these workspace friendly plants.
  2. Get the tunes flowing: A good set of headphones and a cheery playlist can make or break any day. Dedicate some time to curating the perfect streaming station with music that will keep you energized but not distracted.
  3. Frame some photos: Surround yourself with a few of your favorite pics of friends and family or from your favorite travels. These days we’re so used to seeing photos only on our phones. Don’t let some of those favorite memories go forgotten.
  4. Make a vision board: Stay motivated and on track with a few images that keep you focused on your dreams and goals.
  5. Bring a lamp: The right lighting can make a workspace feel totally different. The soft glow of a small lamp can make your workspace feel more homey.
