Preparing your workstation for Back to School

 

Prepping Your Workstation For Back To School:

Back to school in the fall is infamous for its ridiculous commercials. It’s the time of year that every child dreads – summer is over and a new school year is about to begin. Although this is an event that most of us loathe, it is one that cannot be avoided! That being said, a little preparation might ease your way in the process. So how exactly can you prepare yourself? You can begin by creating an area that will ensure productivity, which will in turn also produce success. Let’s take a look at the nitty-gritty, so you can begin your preparation!

Pick a space

First and foremost, you need to pick the appropriate space. This area should be one that does not have any nearby entertainment or distractions, as they will definitely decrease productivity. If you have the option, it would be preferable to select a room that would be transformed into an office/workstation. That way, the same room can be used for doing homework, paperwork and even arts & crafts! No more mess in your dining room!

Setting up your workstation

Ideally, you need a large table or office desk to maximize your working surface. Luckily, they come in a variety of shapes, so that you are not limited in the orientation. In addition, your officechair is also available in a variety of options such as leather, fabric and wood. That way, you don’t need to compromise comfort, durability and style! Next, some other helpful pieces that will maintain the room neat and organized include bookcases and filing cabinets. No more scattered papers and books!

Yes, color matters!

Color is often a direct reflection of our personality. In a home, studies have shown that certain colors produce a similar reaction in most individuals. However, depending on the tone, there can be a slight variation. Room colors are categorized in three basic ways: active, passive and neutral. That being said, for an office, it is probably not best to go too passive or too active. The optimal choice would be to select neutral wall colors (grey, white, brown) with colored home accents.

   Red Very intense; will pump adrenaline like no other. It will stir up excitement.
   Yellow Evokes happiness, but can cause frustration in large amounts (whole room)
   Blue A soothing and calming color. Great for relaxation.
   Green Most restful for the eye. Promotes warmth and comfort.
   Purple Rich, dramatic and sophisticated. Lighter tones promote restfulness.
   Orange Energetic and enthusiastic.

Now you have all the tools to plan ahead, you can ensure the success of your child, as well as your professional success.
