During the past year, we have all had so many challenges and major changes and many of us have found ourselves working from home, whether it’s occasionally, part-time, full-time, or a hybrid work environment. Bottom line, the home office is as popular, and necessary, as ever. Creating a work-space customized to your needs involves addressing key criteria such as space available, and the type of work you do. Assessing a few key criteria will allow you to determine if you need to make minor tweaks to an existing workspace or major changes to create an environment to increase productivity, but more importantly, your overall happiness and well-being.
The space where you work in your home may be a dedicated room with a typical desk “set-up” including desk, filing, credenza, etc. allowing for separation from your work life and home life…good for you!! You may be utilizing a living room, den, dining room, especially if there is more than one person in the household working virtually, and you’re ready to reclaim the area for its originally intended purpose.
