If your home office is in need of a serious upgrade, here are a few things you should consider when organizing your work-from-home space:
Cater to your Comfort
One of the first questions you should ask yourself is: Am I getting the type of seat support that I need? When trying to design a work-from-home space that is comfortable for you, the chair you work is in one of the most important factors. Some people that work-from-home even opt for standing desks in order to keep their spine aligned while they’re working.
“About 90% of adults experience back pain at some point in their life, and 50% of the working population has back pain every year in the U.S.,” according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. Failing to pay attention to the health of your back can affect your mood, health, and, eventually, your work productivity.
Simplify, Simplify, Simplify
Many people that work from home fail to simplify their in-home work processes. This often happens because of the general level of comfort that exists for most people that work-from-home. However, if you’re repeatedly struggling to keep track of important documents when you need them, this will ultimately make you less productive and increase your stress levels.
The important key to a productive, organized office is efficiency. The more random “stuff” that’s lying around your office, the more likely it is that you’ll have trouble finding things when you need them. When setting up your organizational system, it pays to do your best to simplify things as much as possible.
Create More Storage Room
Many people that work-from-home encounter the same issue of a lack of room to store their important documents and receipts. If your business is running smoothly, you might even have to consider expanding the storage area in your home office.
In general, a less cluttered workspace will be a more productive workspace, and it’s easy to let that clutter build up if you have a habit of leaving document piles lying around. If you increase the storage space in your home office, you’ll also free up additional space that was previously used because of a lack of storage. A neater, less cramped home office is always a more productive work-from-home space.
If you’re interested in making some minor adjustments to your work-from-home space, the aforementioned tips are just a few areas in which small improvements can dramatically improve your productivity.
