Top 10 Tips to Create an Inspiring Workspace

Hauling yourself out of bed every day to hustle is not an easy feat. We all know how important it is to be physically and mentally healthy so we can provide for our families. An uninspiring workspace can be one of the reasons an employee is demotivated.

If you’re in this boat as we speak, here are the top 10 tips to create an inspiring workspace and leave you mentally stable and happy all throughout the day.

  1. Clean Your Space

I don’t know about you but there’s something about stuff strewn everywhere that ruins my mood. A cleaner space means an easier way of doing things. Also, when your work stuff is organized, it’ll be easier for you to access whatever it is you need when you need it. Throw out stuff that’s not important and keep those important documents well-organized.

  1. Personalize

Our workspace is considered our own safe haven, a home away from home, for some. If you’re a hardworking employee who spends most of his time at work, then why not personalize your workspace so it’ll remind you what you’re working hard for. Make sure your workspace resonates your personality and lifestyle and it’ll be more comfortable to work in.

  1. Let Pictures Motivate You

Sometimes it’s so hard to get by the entire work week especially when we’re facing a pile of documents and paperwork day in and day out. When you’re always looking at the same view eight hours a day, it can be quite draining. Try to pin beautiful pictures of your family, friends, or furry friends on your workspace. Or better yet, try posting a picture of the beach or mountain or a place you want to travel so when you look up after working too hard, you’ll be inspired to work hard even more.

  1. Ensure Good Lighting

Dim lights aren’t advisable in workspaces, whether you’re working home-based or at a brick-and-mortar office. When you’re dealing with a laptop all day long, dim lights can also ruin your eyes because of the glare from your laptop’s screen. In addition, it also causes headaches. Make sure your workspace is bright and well-lit so it exudes liveliness.

  1. Get Rid of Bad Smells

How would you feel if you’re working in a pungent work environment? Aside from the fact that you’ll be covering your nose all the time and leaving only one hand open to do stuff, it also hinders your productivity because well, a bad smell is just too annoying. Bring some air fresheners at work and try not to eat in your workspace to avoid those pungent smells from all types of food. Office cafeterias weren’t built for no reason – use it!

  1. Keep Your Space Airy

Claustrophobia can take its toll on employees especially when they spend most of their lives at their workspaces five days a week and more than eight hours a day. There’s a reason why people sometimes go outside to get some fresh air. That’s because fresh air can lighten someone’s mood and in turn, refreshes your mind and senses as well. It’s extremely important to allow fresh air in the room where your workspace is. Open the doors and windows, if needed. If in case it’s air-conditioned, then just step outside for a few minutes and you’ll be good to go for another few hours.

  1. Play Some Music

Although not all companies allow this, this is extremely important when you’re swamped with work. Music soothes the soul, they say. And true enough, music does get someone going at work – if chosen properly. Try to listen to the genre that you love, something that’ll inspire you. If bringing a speaker is prohibited at work, then bring a pair of earphones and don’t let anyone cast down on your working spree. Just try not to sing along too loudly so as not to disturb your colleagues.

  1. Make a To-Do List

Put your to-do list in your workspace. As a matter of fact, do it in a fun way by doing a colour-coded to-do list using post-its. After all, a colourful workspace sounds more fun than a dull one. This way, you know you’re on top of everything when your tasks are laid out in front of you.

  1. Green is a Soothing Color

There’s a reason why people love trekking or camping in the outdoors and that’s because looking at lush green forests is soothing to the eyes and soul. If you can’t be in the wilderness, for some reason, then bring the wilderness to your workspace! Design your space with beautiful succulents so you’ll have something to take care of during down time too.

  1. Hydrate for A Better Mind

Never, and I mean never forget to hydrate all throughout the day. People are supposed to drink at least three litres of water daily to replenish our bodies. Make sure you bring a reusable water bottle all the time.

Working can be made easy if you stick to these top 10 tips to create an inspiring workspace. Now your workspace can be something you look forward to on a daily basis!

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Alex Jones

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Ed Green-Moore

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

John O'neill

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
