1. Layout and Design for Maximum Productivity

Minimalism is all about physical space and mental space. A clear mind = greater focus and ultimately, increased productivity. 

Therefore, don’t try to cram too much into your workspace (that goes for color too). Keep clutter and ‘visual noise’ to a minimum. 

Consider desk placement in relation to light and power sources. 

Be creative and thoughtful with design and make the most of the space you have without over-doing it with ‘things’ and ‘stuff’.

2. Let there be light! - Minimalist Home Office Lighting Selection

Incorporate multiple sources of light into your workspace where possible – both natural and artificial. 

Natural light (and a window view) can do wonders for your mood, energy levels and health. 

Whilst artificial and task specific lighting mean less eyestrain and fatigue and subsequently, you guessed it, increased productivity.

Don’t skimp when it comes to choosing a desk chair.

Adjustable desk chairs with good lower and middle back support are essential for good posture. 

If you opt for a lesser quality chair, you’re at a greater risk for developing back problems and posture related ailments, like headaches, fatigue, back and neck pain – all of which can negatively impact your productivity levels.

Reduce clutter and employ strategic storage options, including ideas storage. 

Whether it be physical or digital storage, be mindful of the files and ‘things’ that you keep and be sure to organize them in a way that promotes swift and easy retrieval. 

Similarly, store non-essentials and keep only what you need at hand.

5. Incorporate Nature and Minimalist Inspirational Decor

Finally, personalize your space with a selection of carefully curated motivational and inspirational pieces (but don’t go overboard!).

This could be some motivational or meaningful wall art, a photo of your beloved fur-baby, a plant, favorite scent or perhaps an inspirational quote.

 Anything that will help to energize you, focus your mind and keep the positive (and productive) vibes flowing!
