With the big ‘C’ word hovering over us like a dark overlord, many of us find ourselves working from home, self-isolating from human interaction in the hope of avoiding viral infection.
As a seasoned home worker my office (s) are pretty well established, and after reading all of the posts on social media about people giving newbies advice on setting up the perfect home workspace, I realised how lucky I am and how I take my (biophilic) workspaces for granted.
So I thought that we could talk about some simple ways to introduce a bit of nature into your new (hopefully very temporary) workspace to help you settle in.
Remember, this time should not feel like solitary confinement!
I’m sure that you have already addressed things like your desk, chair, tools and stationery that you will be using because those will be the bare minimum for you to actually achieve something productive at home.
Perhaps you hadn’t thought about sitting near to a window with a view, or as close to a source of natural light as possible, but consider finding a spot on the South or Western sides of your home: these will normally be the brightest spots.
