A dedicated home office is ideal if you have the space available. I was inspired by this statement when I was at a friend’s house recently. Her master bedroom has a large walk-in closet with extra space at the end, so she turned the corner into a cozy work area facing a window with a view. This creative design area is quiet and private, making it ideal for concentration. Stuck at the corner of a walk-in closet where nobody would give a second look, may be hidden a smart succession of shelves, wide enough to fit a laptop, a table lamp, a vase and any other kind of useful stuff we usually have on a typical office desk.
We are all capable of becoming side tracked from time to time, stress may have your mind wandering or you simply can't bring yourself to concentrate. We are only human after all. Sometimes your thoughts just become scattered and your mind won't quit racing. Times like these when absolutely nothing you set out to accomplish gets done. We live in a fast paced society today that only keeps growing and in times like these it is important to concentrate on the tasks at hand. Improving your concentration is like learning a skill and to learn this skill you must practice. By concentrating you are directing your mental powers and your efforts towards a particular activity. Concentration is the key tool in finishing the particular activity you set out to do.
Actually I also feel that where you work and in what conditions you are working says a lot about the kind of person you are. Whether you work from home behind a pile of clutter and debris or whether you work in a nice corner office with a view and not a stitch of clutter in sight, your work space should be an area where you can clearly think and focus on the tasks at hand.
Whether my friend places the study area in between a walk-in closet or even a small storage area, she has infused fun and functional elements to inspire learning! Indeed, the location of the home work area makes a big impact on how functional it is. We all should look for a space in the home that is quiet, without a lot of traffic. This will help to clear your mind and you’ll focus all your thoughts on your work.
Concentration is a skill that we can all learn to improve by centering our thoughts on the tasks that need to be fulfilled. Remember that you can help improve your concentration with using simple strategies such as finding a suitable working environment. It is important to see and focus where you are working comfortably and the contemporary tendencies dictate to simply.…do your job anywhere. :-)
