Remote work settled into our lives from one day to the next, but there are many companies that aim for flexibility and offer the opportunity to work with a hybrid model, which includes spending a few working hours at home. Such is the change, that this is how offices are after teleworking.
Plan the workspace slowly and when you are relaxed, that way you will attend to your true needs. A productive space with different proposals, you just have to choose your favorite office. Select a good area in the living room, very well lit by natural lighting, so you will have to place the desk next to a window, the balcony or the terrace. If you are right-handed, you have to take into account that sunlight has to enter from the left side; It will be just the opposite if you are left-handed and thus you will avoid the shadow of your own body on the keyboard, the agenda or the documentation.
The work table must have the minimum measurements to install the computer or laptop, it is usually 80 x 120 cm, to place the auxiliary lamp and a pencil holder. The desk should have a shelf, better adjustable in height, or a nearby bookcase, to store the work material and keep order at bay and be more productive. Keeping your office organized is easy with these tricks.
In front of the console, reserve a place on the wall to hang a cork or a metal bracket with clips to display notices, quotes, even motivational phrases to get through the workday. It does not matter if your living room is small, we give you the solutions to accommodate a comfortable and beautiful workspace in a few meters.
You have to complete the lighting of the teleworking area with a wall lamp or a table lamp, better with an extendable arm. Take a look at these 12 lamps to illuminate your desk better. The bulbs have to be white light to adjust the color temperature and favor concentration, the neutral light you need is 4000 K. It is also important to observe the color rendering index, a measurement that indicates whether the colors reproduce correctly. Reliably, the perfect one would be around the number 100.
The work chair must be adjustable and ergonomic to take care of the postural hygiene of the back. If you think it is necessary, install a footrest so that the knees make a 90º angle when you are sitting. the backs of office chairs have to be soft, better in breathable textiles and pick up the kidney area. It is very important to decorate your workspace at home well for your physical and mental health.
If you already have the desk decorated, change the look and practice detachment. Get rid of some objects that have accompanied you in recent times, it is a mini-change in the decoration, but you can say goodbye to them and thank them for the service they have given you in that work stage. Incorporate some fetish object to attract harmony and good vibes in your small office. It can be a bouquet of fresh flowers, a plant given to you by someone you love, a photo of your favorite people or a scented candle with an evocative scent of your best memories.
