How to Organize Your Home Office [Infographic]
For those of us who spend most of our time working from home, the way you design and organize your home office is super important. It can help to make or break your focus and productivity, and make your day just a bit more seamless. The infographic below from OmniPapers provides tips specifically for writers, but anyone looking to spruce up their work area can benefit.
When it comes to your desk, think about lighting via a desk lamp, sticky notes, a digital highlighter and even a small desk plant. Your desk should only include the items you use daily; everything else should be stored away to keep your work area clean and clutter-free.
For your whole office, consider creating different work zones for different types of work. One area can be dedicated to completing tasks and projects through your computer, while another can be dedicated to jotting down notes and brainstorming. Use your decor to help you stay inspired, and create storage space that is both smart and decorative.
Lastly, don't forget about your health and comfort. Buy an office chair with ergonomic features that provide support to your lower back. Also consider investing in a standing desk -- this is a great way to fight sitting disease, and provides you with more options/zones for your workstation.
