Looking to make the most out of your work space at home? Here are my top 10 tips on how to create a productive space:

  1. Have a place for everything and make sure it always stays there: pens, paper, calculator, etc.
  2. Proper height desk and comfortable/ergonomic chair to sit in
  3. Remove distractions, i.e., turn television off
  4. Put a timer on your desk. i.e. start your task and give yourself a solid 15 minutes of uninterrupted time, work until the timer goes off
  5. Clean it regularly, from dust to dishes, anything that clutters your desk will clutter your mind
  6. Add some artwork or images on a corkboard that motivate you
  7. Create adequate task lighting. Our eyes get weaker with age, the older we get the more light we need to see
  8. Storage or filing cabinets for finished projects. Shelves for textbooks and other items
  9. All electronic equipment should be in an area where they can be easily and readily charged, phones/laptops/tablets/etc.
  10. The room should be set to a comfortable temperature. (not too hot, not too cold…like Goldilocks, it should be just right!!!)
