Recently, I had the pleasure to collaborate with Chris from DailyTekk. He was very kind to invite me to be in one of his YouTube episodes about inspiring Apple setups. You should definitely check out his video below to get inspired by all the different featured setups and also to know more details about the stuff I use.
I’ll leave you with some tips and little improvements you can do that will help you feel better, more comfortable in your workspace. Hopefully, this will pull you in that perfect state of mind to tackle productively your TO DO list.
Light It Up
Relocate your desk close to a window to catch most of the natural light possible.
Connect To Nature
Add a plant or two (or all the plants you want), this will help reducing stress and add more pleasing air.
Take Care Of Your Body
I cannot stress the importance of a good ergonomic chair and a standing desk enough. These will help you be more comfortable, promoting good posture, blood circulation and your back health will thank you in the future. Mine already has!
No, not alcohol! Water, plenty of it… use a reusable bottle and keep it at your desk. I know this one is so obvious but honestly, I cannot tell you the number of times that I keep forgetting to drink water during the day, especially when I’m in trying to concentrate and the last thing I want to do is to interrupt that state of mind to go grab a glass of water in the kitchen.
Clear Of The Clutter
I personally noticed that stacks of random stuff on my desk kept pulling my eyes away from my computer or iPad. I removed most of the unnecessary gadgets and decor from my desk so I could have plenty of elbow room. This gives me the sense that the desk is larger, one of those cases to say… Less Is More.
Sound To Inspire
Movie soundtracks and podcasts are my favourite things to listen while working. ‘The Intern’ soundtrack as been my favourite lately, is just one of those happy, feel good movies where if you pay attention to the soundtrack is actually pretty good.
Design Your Space
Add your own creative input into the look and feel of your workspace, this will empower you and motivate you to work better.
