Creativity and productivity are two of the most powerful tools you can have in your business and office culture. While a significant part of advancing them is through conversation, it is equally as important to integrate them into the overall environment. Follow these tips to achieve creative and productive harmony.
Make It Personal
Decorate your workspace with objects that bring you comfort and make you feel relaxed and at peace. Small trinkets, photos or even a cozy blanket can be exactly the right ingredients for creating your fortress of free thought and creation.
Grab a Paintbrush
While changing the paint in your office at work may not be possible, changing the color of the walls in your home office is a must! The color green stimulates the mind, reduces stress and even promotes reading speed and efficiency. Purple has been reported to leave you soothed and stimulated. Red can help you feel charged and energetic. Pick a color that feels right for you.
Get Your Favorite Office Supplies
Taking the time to make sure you have all of your favorite office products on your desk and organized is a fundamental component of creativity and productivity. Rather than spending the time searching for your favorite pen, notebook or stapler you can keep all of your products properly stored in your desk for easy access whenever you need them.
Work can sometimes be a stressful place. Alleviate that stress by celebrating small victories with your team. No matter how small, fostering a relationship with your coworkers that is built on respect, trust, and support is a fundamental component to allowing yourself and others to feel creative and productive.
