Stay Organized

The biggest secret behind staying productive, and organized while working from home is having an ergonomically planned work environment.

Pleasant Surroundings

As a beauty blogger and amateur photographer, I love adding small details to the frame of the photo. It is always pleasing to the eye to see an abundant amount of beautiful details in a picture. Fake plants decor is exactly what you need if you are searching for evergreen decorations. Use them to make your home office cozier or to spice up your flat lay photography. Plus, it is a well-known fact that the green color is good for eyesight. It relaxes the vision and prevents eye diseases.

Time for a Break

Being productive is always beneficial for your budget, but as Guy Debord once said: "Work is only justified by leisure time."Therefore, you need to think about your breaks from your working routine and full-fledged rest. Productivity is always boosted up by the perfect balance between work time and leisure. Organize your resting space by adding a few useful items and decoration or coloring it in calming shades. This relaxing interior will help you to slow down your pace, switching your thoughts from a working mood to a more chilled frame of mind.

Stress-relieving Friends

Pets are best friends. They aren't just fun and cute animals that love to destroy our stuff and create a mess on the work tables. Dogs and cats can relieve stress in no time! Simply petting your fluffy friend drastically lowers the levels of cortisol in your blood. And simple social interactions like playing with pet toys altogether will ease the depressive mood and drive away bad thoughts.

Comfort or Functionality?

Comfortable or functional workspace? That is the question. Or is it? When it comes to your home office, the function automatically means your personal comfort. The more functional your surroundings are going to be, the more comfortable and stress-free your work time is going to be. Invest in a good chair and desk, find a display with blue-light filter, and surround yourself with a wireless mouse, keyboard, and earphones. Don`t be shy and ask for professional support if you can't organize your work environment yourself.

Lots of love,
