MN Business Tip Of The Day: Spruce Up Your Desk
We are at our desks for so many hours in a day it’s no surprise people are constantly looking for ways to make their personal space feel more like home. Not only is it depressing, but also creatively stifling to gaze at bland and bare cubicle walls all day long.
You’re best bet is to add a few keepsakes to help fuel productivity and keep you from running screaming from the office. Try adding pictures or family, friends, or of an unforgettable trip to aid you in finding peace when you most need it. Uplifting quotes may be something else to use to help with the occasional midday slump.
With spring here, flowers are also a nice option. Having a splash of color and greenery on your desk is an easy “pick me up.” Not only will you have something living to care for, but you’ll also engage your sense of smell and sight in more pleasant ways.
Knick knacks, from action figures to stress balls, are good functional tools for getting you over plenty of work humps.
Ultimately, whatever mix of ideas you use to bring your workspace to life, be sure and change it frequently. It’s easy to get bored of anything if you see if everyday for years. Mix up the toys, tools, quotes and colors you bring in to keep you moving when work tries to bring you down.
