A job, by definition, is not always fun, or enjoyable - but that doesn’t have to be the case! There are plenty of things we can do to brighten up the office space and brighten everyone’s day. We’ve put together a few ideas for you to try.
You’d be amazed at how far a bit of cleaning can go when it comes to giving your office a makeover. Having a clean work environment decreases stress and increases productivity. How can you expect to increase your workflow, if your workspace doesn’t flow?
Have a boogie
Putting in headphones and getting the music on is a great way to increase productivity and creativity, so why not play it out loud and get the whole office jamming! Music is proven to improve moods and encourage communication between people, which is just what some workspaces need.
Bring the outside, inside
Who doesn’t love a couple of plants? Aside from looking pretty and oxygenating the air, psychologists have found that plants can increase productivity by 15%! Just make sure to keep them well looked after. Office spaces aren’t the best place to raise plant based life.
Once a week (Fridays work best), make a communal effort to bring in snacks and goodies. Everyone likes food and this is a good excuse to take 10 minutes aside from work to sit, have a chat, and rest the brain!
When you’ve decluttered your office, it may be clear, but it may look a bit bland! Try painting a wall, hanging up some bunting, or getting some new blinds. These are all fairly small things that can dramatically change the whole feel of an office!
We hope you’ve found this list of ideas helpful and your workspace is that little bit more enjoyable for you and your team!
