Creating A Conscious Space At Work

The human brain is fascinating. Without one realizing it, the unconscious and subconscious parts of our brains are constantly receiving inputs from external stimuli and processing that into emotions, thoughts, and actions. If you are like most Americans, you spend most of your waking hours working in a professional environment at an office. We dedicate our best hours to being at work, so that we may earn a living and provide for our families. One’s success in life and business is largely a result of one’s productivity, and productivity is a direct reflection of how well our time is spent.

There are many reasons why most employees are not operating at their optimal state: stress, fatigue, distractions, and more. This negatively affects employee and business performance, which directly impacts the company’s bottom line.

In recent years, mindfulness has been discussed more and more in world of business. Harvard Business Review found that implementing mindfulness practices resulted in “a 28% reduction in stress, 20% better sleep, and 19% less pain, as well as an
increase in worker productivity worth an estimated $3,000 per employee per year.”

We wanted to share some tips and ideas for creating a more conscious workspace.

It goes without saying that you should keep your phone notifications and screen turned off, so as to reduce visual and audio distractions. However, you should also minimize the number of tabs on your web browser. Also, try to set your email and internal office chat system to alert you for only the most urgent, relevant, and critical notifications.

We all have busy lives. Our minds are constantly racing, trying to do the task at hand while mentally fighting off distractions. Therefore, you should keep your desk and surroundings as minimalistic as possible. A clutter-less physical environment leads to less mental clutter.

Your office furniture should also be optimized to maximize mindfulness. If you are like most professionals, you work in front of a computer, spending most of your working hours sitting at your own desk or at a meeting table. Though most American office workers spend a lot of time sitting, their chairs and desks are not ergonomic, causing discomfort and pain. It is paramount that your office furniture allows you to sit, work, and focus comfortably.

Stepping up Your Office Space – Pre-Owned Style

Last time we highlighted this office designer, we discussed how they were innovating the office space in this new age of technology. Being constantly interconnected through the internet changes the way we work together and influences the kinds of spaces we need. This change in workflow means we need a change in the workspace.

Already a pioneer of this changing workforce, Creative Office Design has figured out the optimal way to get pre-owned office cubicles into the hands of small businesses and start-ups. They focus on supporting these start-ups and small businesses by making the office affordable. After all, they know you want to focus your money and attention on other investments. 

One of the first rules of design is that good design is invisible. It works perfectly for you and will serve its purpose so that you can focus on the important details. One of their more versatile pieces, a height-adjustable table, demonstrates this nicely. While standing while working is a new fad, studies have shown that work engagement and performance increases while standing. Not only that, but there are a number of health benefits. A height-adjustable table can also aid in collaboration and allow the desk to be more versatile.

While they do offer gorgeous, brand new pieces that come in a variety of options, Creative Office Design is perhaps better known for their impressive selection of used furniture. Mitigating start-up costs while maintaining a professional standard is incredibly important for a new business. What people may not realize is that due to the nature of it, used office furniture usually remains in good condition. If it’s well made, it can outlive the original office space it was used for. That’s how they offer such a variety of used cubicles, desks, tables, benches, etc. And that’s also why you should consider going that route.

Buying used furniture to start is always a good investment in the beginning anyway because you never know where your business will take you. You may have to upgrade later. It’s always good to start small and allow yourself room to grow in the future. When this happens, you will still want your office spaces to be helpful and dynamic. But, continuing to save money is always the smart thing to do. Creative Office Design has thought of this too.

Creative Office Designs has come out with a new program to allow small businesses to receive their furniture without having to wait on long shipping. With the new ODS Express Program, you can get brand new furniture at a lower price in less than two weeks. This is also available throughout Orange County and the LA area.

From sharing office space to working on projects on the web, studies show that a well-designed office environment is very important for productivity. Creative Office Design focuses on providing the equipment and design tools to allow you to create the most effective space. And now, they’re excited to say that they are expanding and have used office cubicles for sale in the LA area!
