With all that is going on in the world, many of us are working from home. Now, we all know that working from home can be a real treat, especially when the kids are sleeping, pets are resting, and silence is a rare but treasured gift. But (and this is a big but), working from home can also be distracting and uncomfortable at times. That’s why our Los Angeles women’s boutique is here to help you revamp your at-home office so the thrill of working is renewed, and you can enjoy your own private sanctuary when duty calls.
1. Create a Zen Feel to Your Workplace with Plants!
Let’s be honest for a minute. Working isn’t always fun. Sure, it has its perks and comes with a great exchange for money (which we love using to shop at our store and our other favorite places), but sometimes it can become a mundane task that is often complemented with stress and anxiety. But, did you know that having a desk plant can actually restore your mind and reduce anxiety? That’s right! Several studies have shown that desk plans have the ability to cure over-stimulation and boost cognitive function. Don’t have a green thumb? Try for an easy-to-care-for succulent before graduating to a needier plant.
2. Choose a Candle and Light that Shit Up!
Candle fiends, can I get an amen? At Salt and Freckles, our team knows just how much candles can positively affect our psyches, and that is why we always provide an array of options for our candle lovers! Adding a candle to your workstation can help you stay focused and may even help you enjoy sitting at your desk for a few hours. I mean, we can’t lie—a good candle will always keep us coming back for more. Need some ideas? Here are some of our favorite candles!
3. Get a Pretty Calendar or Planner to Stay Organized
While working from home, it can be easy to get side-tracked by kids, margaritas, and all other responsibilities. A pretty calendar or cutesy planner can be just what you need to spice up your at-home office while keeping you organized. Write down what you need to get done the night before and enjoy checking off those little boxes as you complete each work task. Then, enjoy your day and celebrate your hard day of work by shopping with us!
4. Keep Your Lip Balms on Deck!
Once your hit your stride and get in the zone, leaving your workstation might seem more like a chore than a nice break. So, get your water bottle prepped and keep your lip balm near so you can feel beautiful and stay hydrated throughout your workday! Need help choosing the perfect lip balm? Here are some our amazing, favorite lip balms that are perfect desk decorations, too!
5. Always Have Hand Sanitizer Near By!
When it’s a busy day in the office, breaks become sparse. We tend to eat lunch at our desks, have snacks at our desks, drink coffees at our desks, and even take visitors at our desk (pups and kiddos count as visitors these days)! With all that added to the unending list of tasks you must complete—it can be difficult to sanitize between each interaction. Thankfully, our cute hand sanitizers make the perfect addition to any workstation. Feel so fresh and so clean any minute of your work day with our fav hand sanitizer.
