#1 Add some plants
If you want to feel more productive when staying at your home working area, then you definitely need to create the place to be more inviting. And what better way to do it than adding a plant there?
You could have a plant on your working desk, or somewhere near it and this way you will make it more pleasant place to stay at. It will look more inviting and it will bring it to life even. You could have a plant in a pot, or you could keep a bouquet of fresh flowers in a vase if you like.
#2 Use a comfortable chair
There are a lot of people who prefer to stay in bed when they work from home, but this is not the best idea. If you want to feel more productive you should not lie down, but be on a chair. That is why you need a special chair which definitely needs to be very comfortable.
If you also want to make the place more inviting and good to spend time at, then you could choose a chair that is not only comfortable, but with a special design as well. You can even choose some colorful armchair in yellow or pink to add some energy and positive vibes to the place.
#3 Choose your working area carefully
The next thing which you need to have in mind, and it actually needs to be the first thing to consider in this aspect, is the place in your home where you will set your working area. There are some things you need to have in mind when you decide where your working area should be.
It is important that this place is not in your bedroom. Your bedroom should be the place at your house where you relax only. And if you only relax in the bedroom, you will be more productive throughout the rest of the day.
Another thing you need to have in mind is to choose a bright place at home for the purpose. It is proven that when it is lighter your brain is set on working mood, and when it is darker – your brain is prepared to relax. That is why it is important that your working area is set somewhere near a window.
Some people put their desks facing a window, but this is not the best idea as well. This is because you can get distracted by the activities happening outside and the sun can also shine directly towards you which will not only be annoying, but it will be an obstacle when you try to work.
It would be much better if set your desk next to a window. This way sunshine will come into the place and you will be less likely to get distracted by the things happening outside.
#4 The details are important
The next thing which will also help you be more productive when you work from home is the details that you will include to decorate the area. It is important that you keep your working desk clean and that you do not eat there. As it was mentioned above, you need to set this place as a working area only. That is why snacks should not be tolerated as well. You can have only a bottle/glass of water there.
Another important thing you should have in mind when you decorate your working area is that you should keep it clean and organized. For this purpose you will need a drawer to keep some papers if you have such, a calendar where to write your schedule for the week and the month, a watch which will help you organize your time better, and maybe some pin board where you could pin some notes you will need. Remember that when your working place is well organized, you will be also able to organize yourself better.
