THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING A DEDICATED WORKSPACE
With high-speed WiFi and global connectivity, we can’t deny the fact that these days you can work from anywhere: your bedroom, living room, kitchen countertop, garden and all of the comfortable spaces you can think of around your home.
Having a space dedicated for work
Having a dedicated space for work will help you focus and avoid distraction, which can come from all sides; from the people you live with to yourself and your mind! As much as you don’t want to think about other things, sometimes the space you’re in can encourage your mind to drift. For instance, if you are working from your living room, you might find yourself thinking about the film you watched the previous night because you’re sitting exactly where this activity took place. This means only a part of your attention is dedicated to your work, contributing towards a counter productive workday. Having a dedicated workspace will help you focus your attention on the important work-related tasks, so you can walk out of your workspace at the end of the day and look forward to spending time enjoying your evening, perhaps with another movie!
