So you work at home in Fredericksburg? Good for you. But all you have for an office is a closet-sized space that you dread going into. No matter how little space you have, there are ways to save space and spruce up your work area so that it’s a place you enjoy spending your day in. According to 360 ezine, a small workstation can work just as well as a larger one. Their space-saving tips include:
Even if you’re the only one spending time in your home office, Psychology Today reports that the décor says something about you:
- Plants and foliage: Well-tended plants hint at a person who intends to stick around.
- Post-it notes: A deluge indicates a person who feels in over his or her head.
- Time and time again: Task-oriented people tend to be conscious of the time and often have a timepiece on hand. Clock lovers are usually thorough and hardworking.
- Family photographs: Psychologists haven't reached a consensus on this one, with some saying family photos are a status symbol and others maintaining they're displayed out of guilt from too much time spent in the office or to genuinely remind one of beloved family members. How they're displayed could provide clues.
- If they're facing visitors, they could be for show. If oriented toward the person, motivations are more personal.
- Motivation plaques, posters, etc.: This indicates engagement in the job and a desire to stay motivated.
- Posters of famous people or historical figures: Hints at values and aspirations.
- Neatness: We may try to mask untidiness by dumping items in drawers but psychologists assert that this personality trait is very resistant to change. "No matter how hard people try to clean up, usually they can never fully hide their true nature." A spick-and-span work area suggests a neat and organized individual.
- Just bare: Empty work spaces hint at a person with little status in the company and who likely is not committed to his or her job.
