If you only do one thing to optimize your workspace, invest in a green plant or two in the corner of room or above your desk furniture. Research has repeatedly shown that the presence of office plants has a range of benefits including helping workers recover from demanding activities and lowering stress levels. As a bonus, there is also evidence that plants can reduce office pollution levels.
It is easy to neglect the importance of your workspace, especially if you are under pressure of deadlines and not so into interior design. It is vital that you choose an office space and desk furniture that you feel happy and comfortable in. If your freedom is restricted, shape the space as much as you can to make it your own. Get your surroundings in order and the rest is sure to follow.
The spaces we occupy shape who we are and how we behave. This has serious consequences for our psychological well-being and creative performance. Given that many of us spend years working in the same room, or even at the same antique mirrored writing desk, it makes sense to organize and optimize that space in the most beneficial ways possible.
