Whether you have a lease on an office space or you work from home, you have the opportunity to make your desk a healthy space to work. It’s not uncommon for many of us to completely ignore our work space as we are busy getting on with the job. However, as we spend more time in our work space than anywhere else, we should try to align our environment with our goals and make it a healthy space to work as possible.
“You spend many hours working on our business from a home office, so it’s super important to create a space that you enjoy being in. A workspace that is full of what brings you joy, energetically balanced and designed to keep you on track for success.”Professional Organiser Becky Stanton
