Thanks to advances in technology, office desks have been interchanged with kitchen counters, video meetings have emancipated the complete reliance on face-to-face collaboration and our furthest commute is from the living room to the kitchen. As we’re learning new ways of working in this new normal, creating a home environment that’s conducive to our personal and professional well-being is more important than ever. These tips can help you increase productivity at home.
WELL AP designer, Lucy Stroup, believes the built environment should contribute to our overall health and wellness. The WELL design framework focuses on the total well-being of a building’s inhabitants and reflects eight different standards:
Air | Water | Nourishment | Fitness | Light | Comfort | Mind | Innovation
Check out Lucy’s six tips on to integrate WELL principles into your home RIGHT NOW to help reduce stress and get things done!
Tip #1: Open windows and curtains to let natural light in. Not only does the fresh air circulating clean inside, the breeze has a calming effect as well.
Tip #2: Seeing wood grain can reduce stress levels – pull back rugs to expose hardwoods or add light wood tones to your space.
Tip #3: Listen to the birds outside and take frequent breaks for your eyes.
Tip #4: Establish a routine and a schedule! It gives a feeling of control and helps reduce stress.
Tip #5: Put shoes on like a normal workday, even if it’s just to work out of a home office.
Tip #6: Add plants – growing small things like this can improve your mood and reset your mind
