Get Your Workspace and Your Energy in Sync

Create a nurturing workspace…

Your workspace is key in shaping the energy that you bring to your work. And at the same time, your energy affects how you create and how you perceive your workspace.  

Whether you work at home or in an office, your workspace has a powerful and undeniable impact. And you hold many, if not all of the cards when it comes to making choices about the nature of that impact.  Even if you work in an office and it seems like everything about your space is pre-defined, you may be surprised at the choices that are still available to you.

So, let’s explore some ways to extend open and nurturing energy to yourself through your workspace.

Make Your Workspace Nurturing

That’s the first thing to realize.  Maybe you’ve created a personal, heart-based sanctuary for yourself somewhere in your home.  The energy you experience there is rejuvenating, isn’t it?  So how about extending that same kind of welcoming energy toward yourself in other areas – including your workspace?  Let’s try it – and then pay attention to how it affects your experience of your time and energy.

This Space is Yours

Envision your workspace. Whether you work inside or outside the home, alone or with family or colleagues, a nurturing workspace invites you to do your best with the maximum of comfort and the minimum of stress.  You deserve that, and in many situations, you can make it happen.

Assess Your Workspace

So, spend some time in your workspace. Really let yourself experience it as it is right now.  Ask yourself:

  • How do you feel when you first enter this space?
  • Is the lighting sufficient?
  • Do you have a comfortable place to stand, move, or sit?
  • Are your work tools adequate to your tasks?

You can learn a lot by noticing ways you have or have not yet created an optimal space for yourself.

Your Workspace Can be Revealing

Open up to an even wider perspective.  It may well be that what is lacking in your work environment reflects other things about your approach to work.

For example, if you mercilessly push yourself to get through the workday, you may pick up on that as you notice serious deficits in your workspace. How you treat yourself in one area will be echoed in lots of other areas of your life. There are clues and lessons everywhere.

So if, on the other hand, you spend much of your time at work wishing you were elsewhere, you may discover that distractions in your workspace are slowing your progress and making you feel trapped.

Tweaking Your Space for Yourself

Imagine yourself walking into an environment that welcomes you. Notice how your shoulders relax and you feel naturally drawn to focus on your work. Your creativity is stimulated, you can easily access the tools you need, and you work efficiently and comfortably.  Know that you can tweak your workspace to create this welcome for yourself.  How?  Well, ask yourself:

  • How does this ideal space differ from your current work setting?
  • How might you modify the colors, the organization, the equipment, and the boundaries to better support yourself and your work?

Any change will boost your morale, and no beginning is too small.
