INSPIRE: OFFICE STYE

I can't help but be inspired by a well organized and styled office space. I am somewhat obsessed with office supplies and space. I think being productive happens in a space that encourages productivity. Here are some tips to remain productive during the day. I hope it inspires you to do more. 

1. Stay organized. Nothing prevents productivity like an unorganized space in disarray. Before you begin your tasks spend time making a place for everything. If everything has a home then there won't be any question of where things belong.

2. Play some tunes. I do my best work with music that is upbeat and consistent. I try to stay away from pop hits because I tend to stop what I am doing and either sing or dance. I am more focused on the music than the task at hand. I play something upbeat, typically acoustic, with no lyrics. The music helps my brain focus and it lifts my mood if I am doing something particularly boring.

3. Write it down. Tasks are made for crossing off of lists, right? Exactly. Write it down and mark it off as you go!

4. Work at your best time of day. I typically work better between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and catch my second wind around 6 p.m. If there's a time of day that you are at your best, focus your tasks during that particular time of day. 

5. Keep it simple. I try not to have too much clutter around so I can focus on what I am doing. If I have a lot of clutter around it tends to distract me from working and direct my mind to cleaning. At both my office and home office, I like to keep each space clutter-free!

I hope these tips inspire you to create a clean, organized, and versatile office space for you! What tips do you have? Comment below!

  3. My husband has a designated home office. My "office" is in the corner of our great room. I have to be where all the action is. And my best time of the day is from about 4-5 AM - 12 Noon. I'm such a morning person. Yesterday I had worked 8-1/2 hours by noon. I've turned into my mom!! :) Great inspiration and tips!

  6. WOW! That's beautiful!
    I have an office space that needs updating badly, but I also have a bathroom and a kitchen that need a make over too. LOL.
    Guess the office will have to wait

  7. Unfortunately, my fiance hijacked the office decor. Otherwise, it would have been white and gold like the picture above. I'm kind of obsessed with office decor! (Pretty sure that boils down to my OCD organizing love)
