It started during the pandemic and is still being used by many – working remotely from home. Some find it easy to separate and some people find it challenging to separate the two. What can you do to avoid having a home feel like “the office” while still having a home environment?
The following are some suggestions for designing an ideal blend of work and relaxation under the same roof.
- Most importantly create a separate area for work. Ideally, this should be a separate room. If you can’t, creating a work “zone” that is separate and distinct from other activities will help.
- It is suggested to take frequent breaks during the day. Once in the morning, once around lunch, and once before the end of the day is ideal.
- Going outside on your breaks is a nice way to spend some time outdoors. Taking time for a breath of fresh air will help instill a sense of calm.
- In the work area soothing colors can help to inspire serenity. Pure white, neutrals, and soothing blues are a good place to start.
- Mix in a good amount of greenery and other natural elements. Trees and plants can go a long way in helping a space feel modern and fresh.
- Use as much natural sunlight as possible, or infuse as much light as possible into a space. Sunlight can help increase serotonin in the brain.
- Consider incorporating scent or fragrance. A calming effect can come from soothing the senses through aromatherapy.
- Experiment with mirrors. Mirrors reflect light and can act like windows in a space.
These are all great ideas that you can use to create your comfortable work area without disturbing the rest of your home and family members.
