I feel like the internet has become so RICH with content since the start of the COVID 19 outbreak. Very talented and intelligent people sharing information for free of any taste, flavor and style. Whatever you are suffering from, or looking for inspiration to do – you can educate yourself for free on the internet.
Sidenote…AMAZING. What a huge blessing to have so much positive information available at our fingertips!
So I don’t want to waste your time writing the same old thing that others have already done far more eloquently that I ever could. But I do think I can add some value in the area of creating a work-conducive environment in your home.
I have worked from home for 2 years now. I started out with an office that was sparsely decorated with just a desk and a computer. I almost never worked from that space. It wasn’t nice to be in, didn’t make me feel productive or inspired. I generally ended up hunched over on the couch or hunched over at the kitchen island. There was a lot of hunching, a lot of back pain and a lot of restlessness. In 2018 I had the opportunity to completely redesign my office last year with the help of Havenly, an amazing on-line interior design service (this is NOT an ad, just my experience). Over the course of about 3 weeks I had a completely redesigned office within my budget. Magical. It is the room of my little girl dreams. And it is white and perfect and no one is allowed to come in. So really it creates the perfect balance between self-imposed isolation and the reality that no one wants to play with me anyway.
Now, not everyone has the ability to do this, or even has the extra space in their home to set up a true office. But there are a few things you can do to make your space work for you during this time.

Now for the little luxuries that make it truly enjoyable.
Most importantly be grateful for the work you have to do, the home you have to do it in and the time you’ve gotten back that you used to spend on your commute.
