A Comforting Feeling: The Tranquil Workspace

All aspects of life can get hectic and challenging at times; from trying to balance everything in your family and personal life, while also striving to reach the greatest professional heights at the same time. In both cases, facilitating the most comfortable and tranquil spaces helps to promote the best atmosphere to get things done in.

When it comes to an office specifically, here are some ways to make the environment more comfortable and tranquil.

“Keep only what is needed on your desk; nothing else

This is a difficult one to follow, but is essential to creating a relaxing work environment. If our desk is filled with unnecessary folders or projects that don’t need our immediate attention, we’ll easily become distracted and lack focus. By keeping on our desk only what we are presently working on, we create the proper attentional feng shui of our workspace. That means we have our workspace designed to only focus on the most important task(s).

Clear out the clutter

When you walk into your workspace does it give you a feeling of dread, or does it invite you in? We can’t expect to have a relaxing workspace with piles of paper, receipts, files and miscellaneous junk crowding our space. If you only change one thing, get organized. Clear everything off your desk except the absolutely necessary items. This means filing (I know, the dreaded f-word) anything that doesn’t need to be out and keeping everything you don’t need constantly, in drawers or cabinets.

  • Use in/out trays to sort your paperwork by urgency and relevance.
  • Create an action for each tray such as “needs research” or “to be filed.”
  • Consider how often you use particular items and place the ones that you need frequently in a convenient place.

Make your space ergonomically comfortable

Here’s some basic ergo tips:

  1. Make sure your feet are firmly planted on the floor.
  2. Keep proper posture.
  3. Adjust the arms of your chair so they’re level with your keyboard.
  4. Your wrists should be straight and “float” about the keyboard.
  5. Adjust brightness/contrast on your monitor; place away from windows and bright lights to prevent glare.” (source: paidtoexist.com)
