Inspiring Creativity: Make Your Home Office A Space For Wellness & Success

We live in a digital age; an age that deconstructs the traditional office space and allows everyone with a laptop and a solid internet connection to launch a successful career from the comfort of their living room.

While the whole concept sounds awesome (and it is), the living room might not be the best place to seek top productivity on a daily basis. Instead, to make your entrepreneurial dreams come true, you want to have a dedicated home office where you can work in peace, away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. So let’s take a look at how you can create a glamorous home office imbued with day-long productivity and unyielding positivity.

Clear the clutter, cleanse your mind

A cluttered space builds a cluttered and burdened mind, and it should go without saying that a truly productive workspace has no room for physical chaos. And no, you cannot thrive in organized chaos, because there is no such thing. If you keep your office untidy, sooner or later your mental clarity will start to suffer, and your productivity levels are going to drop. So your first order of business is to keep your home office clutter-free on a daily basis, making sure everything is tidy and organized. Remember, physical clutter can quickly become emotional baggage, which is not really conducive to productivity or long-term happiness.

Use colors to boost your mood

Every color has its meaning and can be used to evoke certain emotions. Naturally, this is a great opportunity to surround yourself with the hues that will lift your mood on a daily basis, and support day-long productivity in the process. If you want to style your color palette the Feng Shui way, you will need to do it through the five essential elements: water, earth, fire, wood, and metal. Water colors (blue and black) symbolize abundance and should be placed in the East and Southeast areas of your office.

Earth colors (beige and yellow) support stability in all aspects of life and they should be present in the Northeast and Southeast areas. Fire hues (red, purple, and orange) should reside in the South area of your office, while wood colors (green and brown) that are linked to prosperity should be included in East and Southeast part of the room. Lastly, metal (grey) represents stability as well but should be present in the Northern area only.

Equip the office with aesthetic and functional features

In Feng Shui, every element in your office is connected, the positive energy it emits flowing through every piece of decor in the room, imbuing the space with peace and uninterrupted productivity. Needless to say, this means that you should choose your office furniture and accessories wisely. So not only do you want your desk to face the entrance to place yourself in the “power position”, but you also want to use aesthetically pleasing and affordable office supplies, like those sold by Winc for example, that complement the color palette of the room while maintaining the organized, decluttered tone of the office. This will require some strategizing and planning, but it will all be worth the effort once you start feeling the positivity flowing through you.

Let natural light permeate the setting

Artificial lighting is important, yes, but letting natural light permeate the office throughout the day is crucial. Being one of the strongest manifestations of positive energy, sunlight is extremely important for your emotional and psychological health, and it can significantly affect your productivity and performance. To let plenty of light travel deep into your work environment, consider taking down the curtains, replacing your solid door with a French door, and maybe even adding a beautiful skylight to capture as many of the healthful rays as possible.

Eliminate stress and fatigue with greenery

Finally, Feng Shui nurtures an inextricable bond with Mother Nature. This means that your serene and productive office space cannot be complete without greenery strategically positioned in the corners and on the windowsills. Not only do plants such as the Areca Plant, Bamboo Palm, and Peace Lily serve an aesthetic purpose, but they are also excellent for air purification, which will in turn help you banish fatigue, eliminate stress, and preserve day-long mental clarity.

Working from home is an excellent way to maintain a healthy work-life balance by building a successful career while spending quality time with your loved ones. However, if you want your home office to truly speak the language of positivity and productivity, you should also implement these essential tips that will help you pave the road to lifelong health, happiness, and success.
