4 Ways to Make Your Office Space More Conducive To Productivity

Are you easily distracted? Do you want to get more out of your workday and head home every afternoon feeling accomplished? If you’re looking to boost your productivity, one of the easiest and most effective ways of making a change is to upgrade your work environment. Here are a few simple tips that can make a big difference.  

 

  1. Declutter. The work week can be hectic, and it's easy to let documents, office supplies, knick-knacks, and other loose items pile up on your desk. You might even assume that you need most of that stuff sitting there. But the truth is, freeing up your office space can oftentimes free up your mind as well. Studies have shown that excessive clutter can lead to anxiety, stress, and other negative mindsets that harm productivity while making you feel miserable to boot. Take a bit of time to analyze your existing setup with a critical eye, and you will likely end up removing quite a few items, while removing quite a bit of unnecessary stress from your life as well. 
  1. Inspire Yourself. Now that you have so much free space, why not use just a little bit of it to put up a picture or some other special item that you find particularly inspiring. It could be a photo of a loved one, or a framed quote, or any other object that puts you in the right mindset to do your best work. 
  1. Light is your friend. Surprisingly enough, dark spaces tends to make people feel sleepy and lethargic. And bright spaces tends to inspire us to action and work. A well-lit office space will keep you alert and working hard all the live-long day.  
  1. Comfort is key. According to famed psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and his influential theory of flow, people tend to feel most satisfied and productive when they are totally focused in on the task at hand. This means no multitasking -- but it also means eliminating as many discomforts or bothersome factors in your workspace in order to allow your mind to dedicate itself fully to your work. In other words, adapting your office to be more comfortable is more than just a luxury: it can have a real impact on the way you work.
