I believe having your own workspace is very crucial. Everyone should have their own spot that helps them focus and that helps bring motivation. About almost two years ago, I decided to turn a room that was an addition to my grandparent’s house into my own little office space. I’m still working on it, unfortunately, but hopefully, I’ll be done sooner than later and I’ll be able to show you guys the finished product!
Until then, since it’s motivation Monday and a lot of us are either newly working from home or have been but are used to switching up the scenery once in a while, I decided to give you guys some ways you can decorate your workspace!
1. Add Some Greenery
I, personally, am terrible with taking care of plants, so I’ll be putting more fake plants in my office but I’m going to try my hand at real ones too. Whether fake or real, adding some greenery to your office really livens it up. I think a dash of green, no matter what your office theme may be, just brings a nice ambiance and adds a great touch.
2. Stationery/ Desk Decor
I’m a huge fan of stationery and cute desk decor! Typically when you’re in your office, you’re probably going to be using a desk to work on. Who wants to work at a boring, bland desk? Not me! Make it your own little space with your needed stationery supplies and just some extra decor pieces. Your desk is like your home for your laptop/computer. You wouldn’t want your house to be empty and bland right? So don’t let your laptop/computer live that way either!
3. Keep Motivational Quotes Around
I’m a sucker for a good motivational quote. If you haven’t read my inspirational quotes post, then I highly suggest taking a read if you love a good quote. Decorating your workspace with canvases and posters of motivational quotes can help keep you pushing when you’ve been working just a bit too long. It’s also really helpful to set the tone if you know you have to get things done, but you’re just not feeling it. I have motivational quotes all around in my workspace, and it really helps to look at when I’m feeling discouraged.
4. Create A Girl Boss Vision Board
Creating a girl boss vision board, or just a vision board in general, and hanging it up in your workspace is a great touch to add. What better spot to place it than in the area that you most likely will be using to work on your dreams? Even if you’re someone who’s just using the area more since you have to work from home, it’s still a great reminder when you’re going back to work and have to use the area less frequently. I created my own girl boss vision board and I love it! I feel inspired every time I look at it.
5. Add Little Final Touches
Lastly, add your own little touches! I’m HUGE on aesthetics, so adding little touches of decor in my space just makes me happy every time I enter into it. Whatever those touches are for you, whether they be shelves, pictures, little statues/figures, etc., add them to your workspace to create an aesthetic and make the thought of doing work enjoyable.
