6 Tips to Create a More Zen Workspace In Your West Springs Home 

A zen workspace is a place of peace, tranquility, and focus. The purpose of having this type of office is to give you a chance to gain greater clarity on your work, to be free of distractions, and to achieve optimum productivity. 

Here are 6 simple steps to help you get started on creating a more relaxing and zen workspace: 

  1. Organize your desk and area. The only papers that should be on your desk are those that you are currently working with. To clear out your space, get together all the loose paper in your area and either take action on it, file it, toss it, or delegate it. Repeat this process at the end of each work day to keep your space clean. 

  2. Declutter. Similar to the above, the only things that should be on your desk are the items you need to perform your current tasks. Make sure to clear your desk of paper, knick-knacks, post-its, and even framed photographs and keep only what you require to be productive. 

  3. Add some greenery. Not only do plants add colour and beauty to a room, they also bring in moisture and help clean indoor air. In addition to this, studies have shown that plants help to reduce stress and colourful ones can even give you a much needed energy boost. 

  4. Choose a room that has a lot of natural light. Natural light in an office is important because it boosts health, happiness, and productivity. If you don’t have the luxury of a large office window, then consider swapping out your fluorescent lights for something softer and calming. Supplemental lighting such as a desk or floor lamp can help create a soothing environment that benefits your vision, mood, and energy levels. 

  5. If you want art, keep it simple. In an office space, less is always more. If you want art in your space, focus on 1-2 pieces that are simple, meaningful, and inspirational. 

  6. Clean out your computer. Even in a virtual space, decluttering is key. Create a simple folder system so it’s easy to track down documents and clear your desktop of applications and icons you don’t need. Make sure to also disable any distractions, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instant Messaging notifications except during 2-3 designated times daily.
