Chi Your Workspace
If a messy workspace was on your controllable annoyance list last week, well this week we’re going to clean that up. In today’s world, your workplace might be a home office desk, a cube at the office, a locker where you store your stuff, your car or truck. Where ever it is make it work happy:
1. Organize your space. This might take a while if you haven’t organized it in a while. And by organize I mean clean out your space or at least get the piles in a better order. Otherwise you waste time looking for what you need to do your job.
2. Personalize your space. Add a picture of your family or the next place you want to take a vacation to so you see some of the reasons you work. Fill your space with colors and things you like. Or add your favorite smells.
3. Add stress reducers to your space like a slinky, stress ball or nerf basketball. Every space needs something fun.
4. If you spend most of your work hours in your car or truck make sure you have the things you need to do your job handy. Have a box for pens, notepads or other office supplies that will make your job easier. If you work out of a locker make sure you have a space to keep anything you need to make your job easier that you can easily access during a break.
It’s easier to be happier at work when you personalize your work space and it reflects the things that make you smile.
