Creating A Working Woman’s Dream Home Office
Working from home has its benefits and many women are taking advantage of those benefits these days. You don’t even have to have children to make a case for working from a home office. It’s more convenient and it allows people with anxiety disorders and other health issues to work a full-time job on their terms.
When it comes to working from home you do have some extra responsibilities to take on. You won’t have someone always looking over your shoulder and prodding you to get the job done, so you need to have a work environment that motivates you. Here are some tips on creating a home office that will have you working successfully from home.
Keep It Clean And Organized
There is more to keeping your home office clean than just keeping it organized, while that is important as well. Consider dust and mites, and other gross things, that could be hiding out in the furniture and the carpet in your home office. Take some time out at least once a month to give your office space a good cleaning, it will help you sneeze less and stay more focused.
Find ways to keep your office organized too, even if that means extra filing cabinets or shelving units. If your office is cluttered you’re going to get less work done. Try reading some books on Feng Shui as you move in your different types of office furniture.
Pick The Right Colors And Decor
Here again, Feng Shui is a great system to look at when it comes to coloring and decorating your office for success. Take some time to read up on how to make your home office a place of wealth and prosperity. Follow the tips as much as you can. While you may not have a choice in how close your office is to your bedroom, you do have a choice in what color to paint the walls.
You want to decorate your office in a way that inspires you, depending on what your career is. If you’re an artist of some kind you might want works of artists that inspire you or maybe your own art on the walls. If you are into advertising you might want vintage ads on your walls. Perhaps you are target driven. A “Hustle” neon sign on the wall or a vision board of what you want achieve can be really effective. It’s up to you, but pick items that make you happy.
Don’t Skimp On Comfort
This is your home office and it’s pretty likely you’re going to spend a lot of time in there each day. That means that you want to have desks and chairs that allow you comfort and focus. You want chairs that support your back so that you have good posture while sitting at your computer.
You also want a desk that doesn’t cause you to continually bang your knees every time you move. When you start looking at office furniture always try it before you buy it. Test that chair, sit and that desk and move around. Find the right fit for you.
