Working at home, I know very well that my workplace layout needs to be awesome. Why? It’s simple: My creativity and productivity depend on it.
Ugly workspace makes me uninspired, and – guess what – stressed out. I once worked on the office layout I didn’t like. I end up struggling with my productivity. I’m also too stressed out to work, in such a way that I feel the need to work outside my home.
I though that I’m just got bored living and working on the same roof. I realized that’s not the case; the thing is, my workspace layout sucks.
So, I changed my layout: I dump that conservative looking desk, and I install a minimalistic-looking work desk, complete with both fake and real plants for the eyes.
I also have this nifty wooden table – with DIY heat sink for my laptop and a mouse-pad-smartphone-holder combo I created from Duplo that was mentioned on HereOnBiz. I put the table on top of my desk, so I can work standing up for better posture and more health benefits
I’m happy to report that I enjoy working at home more than ever, and as I enjoy it, I’m becoming more creative, healthy and productive (and get more income – yay!)
