Staying relaxed and motivated at work can be a challenge depending on the kind of environment you work in. Thankfully, there are many things you could do in order to create the environment that will be right for you.

Here are a few techniques that can be used in order to change the atmosphere and make you feel more at home (or even at your favourite sauna) while you are at work.

Stay hydrated

It is not because you are not running around all the time that your body is not making efforts. Hydration is a must even when working behind a cubicle. Make sure you have water, teas and natural juices on your desk at all times so that you can keep this brain of yours healthy.

Take breaks

Take breaks even if you do not feel tired. Take a walk around the office, stretch, go to the bathroom… It is crucial to take time to breathe and decompress. This will make you more productive and ready to tackle other tasks.

Create an appropriate playlist

Background music has the power to relax and stimulate the mind. Create a playlist that you will be able to listen to while working. It will help you stay focused on the work without getting distracted by the noises around you.

Set up a relaxing environment

Working in the proper environment will also inspire you. Make sure your papers and other things are in order. If you have a few pictures that make you happy, you could have them on your desk. It could be pictures of your kids, lover, family, or simply pictures of things that calms your mind like landscapes. Scented candles are also a good idea!

Life behind the cubicle doesn’t have to be stressful or draining. Do what it takes to personalize your working space.
