Having the right desk accessories in order for you to stay organised is a must! Invest in a pretty notepad that will encourage you to make daily to-do lists that will keep you on track. A cup of tea on hand isn't a bad idea either! 

Declutter your space

Tidy space, tidy mind. Make sure your desk space is decluttered and rid of any excess mess. We suggest opting for stylish storage such as baskets and industrial-style shelving for your home office. 

Be comfortable in your surroundings

An important factor of being productive at home is making sure that you are comfortable in your surroundings. When it comes to your desk chair, make sure it's comfortable and supports your back correctly. Think about what it is about your home office that encourages you to want to be there. 

Let in lots of light

No one wants to work in a dark and dingy space, so ensure you are able to work in an area that is exposed to lots of natural light. Having a desk placed infront of a window is a great idea to optimise productivity. It also helps being able to see the outside world, to make you feel connected.

Stay motivated
