4 Ways to Improve Your Work Space

Most of the population spends about 40 hours a week at their office working 5 days a week. Over 2 years that’s a total of about 1,048 hours of your life spent at your desk! So why not make an effort to make our work spaces a happy place!

It doesn’t matter if you have a cubicle or an entire office, the more personal your space is the happier you will be.  We put together a list of ideas and things to incorporate into your workspace to help make it cozy and fun!

  1. Flowers or a plant! Brighten up your desk with a colorful bouquet (doesn’t have to be real) or get yourself a simple indoor plant to take care of each day.
  2. A quote board! Find a stylish white board that you can write a new quote on each day, or buy yourself a quote block with cards that are interchangeable. This will give you and your co-workers daily motivation!
  3. Photos! Print off photos from holidays, or your most recent vacation to look at and remind you of all the people who make you smile.
  4. A fun screen saver! Start you day off right when you turn on your computer with a fun themed desktop background. It can be seasonal, modern, artsy, whatever appeals to you and your personality.

There are so many things you can do, get creative, think outside the box, or simply search additional ideas! Using even one of the above is sure to make your office a little more cozy and comfortable.

4 Ways To Make Mondays Better

4 Ways To Make  Mondays Fun

Make Mondays Positive! We all know that once Monday comes around everyone is thinking “I wish it wasn’t Monday”. However, Mondays don’t always have to be negative and you don’t always have to dread them!

The best thing you can do is plan something you look forward to each week. This way Monday is no longer a downer. Having something planned after your work day on Monday is a nice way to get your week off to a positive start!

Some fun ideas are:

  1. Planning a new fitness activity to do by yourself or with a friend. This could be a relaxing Yoga class, a game of tennis, a bike ride or if your community has outdoor workout classes, you can take this opportunity to participate in one!
  2. Reach out to a friend who you never have time to see. Sometimes schedules just don’t line up, so make an effort to reach out to that friend to see if they are free. You could attend a local event, plan dinner at a new restaurant you both have never been to, or simply invite them to your home!
  3. Happy Hour with co-workers. These days, most co-workers gather together after a long day of work closer to the end of the work week. Try and change it up by suggesting a Monday happy hour instead!
  4. For those of you who enjoy learning new things, teach yourself something new! If there’s something you have been wanting to learn but just don’t have time, use Mondays to teach yourself one thing. Over the course of a few weeks you’ll sure to be a master at your new technique!
