Like so many others, I work from home. I work from my lovely home office most of the time but other times its from my kitchen table (when I need to keep my eye on the kiddies), my sofa, my bed, the lake, the beach or where ever … My favourite out of all the above is obviously the beach, but that doesn’t happen too often, so the runner up is my home office. I revamped and reorganised it a few months ago to make it a much more satisfying environment to work in, and it really is!
For me, a clean and tidy office equals a clear mind – I have always been like this, even at school I would have to have an immaculate bedroom before I could focus on any work whatsoever. This carried on throughout university and has continued into my adult working life. I used to think it was a form of procrastination but now I know that its just who I am and how I work, if my workspace is messy and unorganised, my brain feels the same.
My office stays tidy at all times (so anal I know), unlike the rest of my house which, due to mainly the toddler, is a mess most of the time, crumbs and toys everywhere (and it drives me crazy!) Its as if vacuuming never existed. Ever.
Ahhhh thank god for the adult home office space….
