Making Work from Home, Work for You
There are many advantages to working from home – especially when your home is such a beautiful place. With more companies considering hybrid work options, it’s best to consider how to create your best work from home space possible.
First things first. Good lighting is important including your natural light and desk lamps. Make sure you have a comfortable chair. Connectivity is critical, especially for those Zoom calls.
Here’s a few more ideas:
It might be easy to choose a spot for a home office. You may have an extra room that is your dedicated office space. However, when space is tight, you have to think creatively about your “office space.” A kitchen table could work if you don’t mind packing up your office before every meal. Instead consider unused corners especially if space is tight.
If you don’t have a dedicated room for your office, it might be challenging to separate work from home. Consider adding a privacy divider to your home office setup. Traditional dividers are an option a well as hanging a curtain from the ceiling or on a rod. With a curtain, you can choose something subtle that blends in with the rest of your space.
Protect Important Documents.
Shelves and cubbies are helpful but might not be enough for sensitive or important work-related documents. Invest in in lockable file and storage cabinets when there are items you can’t risk losing. Luckily you can even find stylish options that will still look great in your space.
Finally, remember to stand up, stretch, and take a quick walk or exercise at varying intervals to reinvigorate the body and mind. Luckily there are beautiful options around every Far West community – including spending a few minutes at your community bird aviary!
