How’s Your Stress? Makeover your workspace

With stress at chronic levels in the workplace, I will include some simple ideas to lessen it over the next few days.  Lisa

Being able to personalize one’s desk space with photographs of family, friends, even pets can help create a connection with home and feeling of support.

Fresh flowers and plants can help to brighten the environment whilst decreasing the effects of electromagnetic pollution from computer screens and harsh office lighting.

Meaningful quotes, perhaps in the form inspirational and amusing posters can help to induce feelings of positivity and support through difficult times.

Clearing clutter and mess has a cleansing and renewing effect – even if it is achieved by putting things into neater piles, or storing papers and other bits and pieces away in draws and cupboards.

Throwing rubbish away – including paperwork that you are unlikely to need (especially if it’s saved as a computer file) – is also helpful for a sense of control and order. It’s about managing your environment – and not letting your environment manage you. This relates to time management and organizing things around you so that you are in control of them, rather than feeling cramped or submerged by tasks, notes, reminders, etc., some of which are perhaps actually unnecessary now anyway.
