Many people are finding themselves working from home, or spending more time at home at the present moment, and it’s important to feel comfortable and at peace in the space, where you spend the most amount of time.
Spending too much time in a cramped, cluttered and uninspired space will have an impact on your energy levels and motivation. It’s hard to focus and you are likely to feel more frustrated.
Having an uncluttered space that you find visually appealing will have a surprising difference on your mood, your energy, your focus and motivation. There are lots of little things that you can do to beautify your space and create a calming, zen-like atmosphere.
Clean Up Clutter
I can imagine a few people rolling their eyes when they see this. It’s ok, I do too. I hate it when people carry on about cleaning up clutter. I feel like they are nagging me personally, because I happen to be a very cluttered person.
I will even go as far as saying that I like clutter, because I get defensive. I don’t. It’s a stupid thing to say.
The fact is that even if you are one of those people, like me, who “like clutter” then you are going to feel much better and more focused, inspired and motivated in an uncluttered space.
Spruce Up Your Desk
Something as simple as adding a pot plant or small ornament to your desk can make your workspace feel so much better. If you want to zenify your desk, a crystal paperweight or small terrarium are simple options, but if you want to be a little more extravagant, try a small desk fountain or back-flow incense burner.

Pot plants always make a place feel fresh, but only if you use real plants and not fake ones! It’s important to find a plant that is suitable for the level of care that you are prepared to give it. For example, if you often forget to water your plants then a succulent might be suitable for you.
