How to be happier at the office ? Here is a selection of five concrete solutions to use.
Organize your workspace properly
An overcrowded work plan, or an office that is "withdrawn", is a factor of anxiety and stress. How to liberate space and bring more ' wellbeing '? Prefer the rooms with a good height under ceiling, and if possible with a mirror, in order to improve the light supply. Do not overload the space of supplies, plants, photos... it takes space! A break room exists in the building? So don't bother to stall a mini-couch behind you that prevents you from taking a step back with your seat. To each piece its function.
Use Nature and art!
Plants, but also works of art, is a touch of decoration in an office. It's also a way to reduce your fatigue and increase your productivity. When you raise your screen nose to find an idea, or to think about a way to solve a problem, admit that it is much nicer to have a nice picture or a small shrub facing you, rather than a vulgar white wall.
Use colors that stimulate productivity and well-being
Leverage the positive effects of colors in your workspace by selecting different shades that help strengthen your concentration, confidence, well-being. Blue, yellow or green have calming properties. If you do not have the possibility to repaint the desktop, place soothing colors in small touches, using decorative objects.
