Even the best workers feel unmotivated at the office sometimes. Those working remotely from the comfort of their homes can feel uninspired as well. After all, most adults do spend more time working than they do anything else. Couple that with the fact that we’re still in the middle of a pandemic. It’s vital to address the burnout that you may be feeling. Nothing is wrong with taking a lunch break away from the computer (even if you are home). We encourage it! Here are some tips that can bring you motivation and inspiration at either your work or home office.
Are Overwhelming Tasks Keeping You Unmotivated at the Office?
If this applies to you, never attempt to do too much at once. This tip applies to anything in life. When you try to accomplish too many assignments at the same time, it can lead to burnout. Break big tasks into smaller chunks to feel less overwhelmed. While some people may have multitasking down pact, if this is not your strong suit, be honest with yourself.
Are You Taking Breaks?
When your brain is always in work mode, it can drain you. When you take a break from work, you’ll come back feeling refreshed and ready to make it through the rest of your day. It may seem counterproductive, but taking a break enhances productivity and creativity. Not only should you take mental breaks, but physical movement matters as well. Some people favor stand-up desks because they keep them from being immobile. By “break,” we don’t mean that you should look at your cell phone for thirty minutes. We highly recommend that you go for a walk, eat lunch away from a screen, read a chapter of a good book, and take deep breaths.
Does Your Office Environment Inspire You?
Visually appealing spaces are inspirational. If your office space is dull, you should change it. We offer an array of furniture that can take your commercial or home office to a new level. Personal touches(such as photos) and pops of color here and there may be enough to make you feel engaged while at work.
Also, letting in natural light is healthy. Offices with windows and natural elements are excellent. Open those windows and consider adding small indoor plants around your workspace. Too much time in a dark and dull room is enough to leave anyone feeling uninspired. We also recommend that you invest in comfortable and ergonomic office furniture. How can anyone focus on work with back pain? Or when their neck always has to crane to look at their screen?
