The global pandemic has taken a toll on more than just our personal life; It has also affected our professional life. Living and working from home is a new way of living that many of us are adjusting to. Although there are many benefits, there are also many difficulties including overworking, lack of space, and a downward spiral in mental health (to name a few). To make the most of your home, as well as ensure your sanity, creating a quiet space is necessary. Here are some creative ideas to keep you inspired and feeling refreshed throughout the week!
Keeping your personal and professional life separate may seem impossible, but by adding dividers or separating spaces, you can create a much more functional home. Pick a space in your home that you do not spend a lot of time in and is not associated with relaxation. This will allow you to create variety and feel like you haven’t been stuck in one space for the entire day. A nook off the kitchen or living room is often best in a small space. In a larger space, a basement, spare bedroom, or home office will suffice.
Getting fresh air for even as little as 10-15 minutes throughout your workday can make all the difference! Set up an outdoor oasis on your patio or balcony that reflects a feeling of zen. This outdoor space can also transform into a place to entertain family and friends after hours. Some factors to consider are shade, warmth, and functionality.
Both renters and homeowners have been putting more emphasis on the importance of their homes by redecorating. The addition of plants, wall art, rugs, office furniture, and other décor are a great way to add character to your home and create a homier space.
For those looking for a complete refresh, home renovations are the perfect addition. Renovations are customizable to your needs and allow you to create a more functional space. Although a DIY project may seem like a good idea right now, they often create more stress, especially when living and working from home. That is why we suggest hiring a professional.
Working out is one of the best ways to unwind. With gyms and fitness centres closed or limited to capacity, home workout spaces are increasing in popularity. The best part about a home workout space is that it allows you to fit in a quick workout and requires little space. The addition of weights, a yoga mat, and exercise ball is perfect for a small space. In larger spaces, a spin bike, treadmill, and other fitness machines can be incorporated.
