Currently, many of us are working from home. For some, the end may be in sight, while others likely have no idea how much longer it will be until they have the chance to return to their normal routines. It’s possible that some will now be working from home permanently. Taking all of this into consideration, now seems like the perfect to evaluate your home office and decide whether or not it’s time for an update.
One tell-tale sign that your home office is in desperate need of a makeover is that you lack motivation. Motivation can be tough to find, and one of the most important factors that influences it is the environment in which you place yourself. If it isn’t up to par, you may find yourself struggling to preform to your true potential. Making matters even worse, once you lose your motivation to work, your motivation to improve your workspace becomes even lower. It’s a vicious cycle that becomes harder to break out of the longer you’re in it.
Does your home office also double as the place in which you sleep? If your answer to that question is “yes”, it’s time for an update. Working out of your bed may sound ideal in theory, but in practice, it’s going to become harder and harder to actually get anything done. Take the time to establish a workspace somewhere else in your home that will force you to actually use the space of your living environment. It’s more effort to do now, but you’ll be glad you did later.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, are you feeling depressed? This relates back to the paragraph about motivation. If you’re feeling down in the dumps, it’s most certainly time to change up your home office. Whether you just reorganize or actually invest in new furniture (that’s where we come in), updating your workspace can be a surprisingly effect tool at fighting the blues. Pay attention to how you’re feeling. It’s so important to validate those feelings and take action to improve them, now more than ever.
