Remote Work

More and more people are recognizing the benefits of remote work. In this blog post, we'll provide you with 4 tips for creating a healthy and enjoyable home office space.

Surround Yourself with the Right Colors

Colors influence our behavior. While you may not always be aware of it, they evoke certain emotions and can even impact your mood. Vibrant colors around you create a positive feeling and can help maintain your concentration. However, an excess of a particular color can have a counterproductive effect.

For instance, the color yellow can make you restless and agitated, while blue and orange exude calmness and harmony. Take a moment to consider whether you should spruce up your home workspace with a different hue.

Ensure Proper Lighting

When working from home, you spend less time commuting and often remain seated in one place for extended periods. Therefore, it’s crucial to ensure that sufficient daylight reaches you. Spending too much time indoors can lead to a Vitamin D deficiency, leaving you feeling tired and sluggish.

Ideally, set up your home workspace close to a window. If that’s not possible, provide yourself with a bright lamp to avoid straining your eyes.

Aromas Affect Your Mood

Not only colors but also scents can alter your perception of remote work. Consider using a good air freshener, surround yourself with purifying plants, or open the windows more frequently. Fresh air or at least air with a pleasant fragrance will make you feel more comfortable and less fatigued or distracted.

Maintain a Healthy Work-Rest Balance

As colleagues won’t pop in and interrupt your concentration, you may find yourself working continuously for extended periods. This might lead to adopting a cramped posture or staring at the screen for too long. To maintain a healthy work-rest balance, follow existing advice like the 20/20 rule (i.e. for every 20 minutes of screen time, take a 20-second break to look at an object far away).

So, remember to get up from your chair regularly and take a short stroll to another room before getting back to work. We are here to help you create your ideal home workspace.
