Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you have had a great week so far. Since I am moving in just a few days I figured I would do another post about design and what I am doing to my new apartment to make it feel more like home. One of the things I have always wanted was a home office space. Since I do so much coaching, writing, editing, and more at home I think it will be really nice to have a space completely devoted to that. My new bedroom in my apartment has a desk so I will be making that my at home office space. I am really excited about what I have in mind and I wanted to share it with you. I will be doing a tour over on my YouTube Channel when I get it all set up, so make sure you go subscribe if you want to see more of my apartment. But for now, here is what I am doing to create a home office space in one corner of my very small bedroom. By the way, my desk does not come with drawers, so I will have to get creative with storage and organization. But I will be showing that in the video I do.
Keep it light.
Like I said, there isn’t a ton of storage space in terms of drawers and places to put things. So I will be keeping it as minimal as possible. I won’t have a ton of decor on my desk and I will keep only the basic and essential supplies on the desk’s surface. There is a shelf at the top that I could use for whatever, but in terms of the actual desk itself, I want to keep it as open and light as possible. It will keep me from having a ton of clutter and will optimize my workspace. So when it comes to creating my home office space my goal is to keep it as minimal as I can.
Get organized and comfortable.
Keeping my workspace organized is essential for me to be productive and stay on top of things. It also help reduce stress and anxiety. I also want my workspace to be as comfortable as it can be without being so comfortable that I don’t want to do anything. So I will have some decor on my desk just to make it a little more personable and I will have organizational components on my desk and under my desk to help me keep everything together and put away. It will just help me have peace of mind when I am working.
Keep distractions away.
Luckily my TV will be behind me and when I’m working it won’t be turned on. I also won’t have a ton of distractions on my desk that will take away my focus. I am trying to utilize my closet as much as possible so that I don’t have too many things in my actual bedroom. This will help my office space feel more motivating and useful because it won’t be cluttered with things that aren’t helpful to whatever I am trying to work on. It just keeps me from dividing my focus all the time.
I have dabbled into essential oils recently and I love them. I have a few essential oils that I got for Christmas with my essential oil diffuser. It helps create a more relaxing environment and has a lot of health benefits. And since I am not allowed to have candles in my apartment, this is the next best thing. It’s super easy to use, has so many scents and benefits, and just helps me stay comfortable and relaxed while I am getting work done. So I will definitely be using this in my new apartment.
Keep my goals visible.
I bought some Post-It Notes so I can write down my goals and post them on the wall behind my desk. This way every time I sit down to work on something or use my desk I have a reminder of what I am working towards. I will include both short-term goals, like my monthly goals, and my more long-term goals. This will just serve as a daily reminder that I have goals and dreams and I will hopefully be more motivated to reach these goals and keep up with my plans.
And that is what I am doing to create my very first at home office space! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Let me know in the comments if you have any tips for creating an at home office space or how to organize a desk that doesn’t have drawers (I know I can buy plastic drawers to go under the desk). Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
