The importance of work-space

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Geza Design

I am sitting by my desk, getting ready to get organized for today's chores - facing me are three large windows, making this room a cozy and warm part of the now cold outdoors.  I am overjoyed in seeing squirrels play, birds trying to make ends meet and trees all around swaying in the morning breeze. All in all this is an exceptionally pleasant view - a view that makes me want to sit by my desk and a view which will make even the most dreaded work days pleasurable and a view which helps in achieving my daily goals. I know am lucky!

Squirrels playing - Geza's BlogI believe that a work place should not be a cubicle with fluorescent light cheating your body’s senses; it should not be a cold space without personality and it certainly should not be a place that will not inspire. Too many of us sit behind desks each day, facing a partition wall – just consider what this does to our thoughts?

The short of it that our work space – a space where we spend a big part of our lives – should be inviting, pleasant, well lit and full of personality. It must be comfortable and inspiring even if it makes you lose concentration every so often, as when you stop for a minute or two in order to smile at those mischievous squirrels, you are really recharging yourself and are so much more capable of being productive.

I am lucky – now I can go back to work!

Thanks for the smile Geza!

I never expected to see squirrels playing cards when I clicked on your post! Very cute.

I work from home many days and couldn't agree with you more about how a work space can affect your day. Today, I am blessed with bay views from my window and an ever changing display of weather, ships, pleasure boats, sails, and birds, as my view.

I am lucky too!...Now, back to work!

Best regards,

Geza--My work space is much like yours--and I choose to work from home!  (Dogs snoring at my feet now)  However, even the work space my assistants use is pleasant---large windows to watch assorted nature passing by, nicely decorated, some plants...

Geza:  "Too many of us sit behind desks each day, facing a partition wall"...  I did this for 30 years and believe me, I felt like I had been set free when I took an early retirement.What's worse is after sitting all day in a cubicle, then I sat for an hour or more crawling in traffic.  I felt like a zombie.  I could never go back to that again.  Thank goodness for the North Georgia Mountains and a simpler lifestyle.  Once I moved here, I never looked back.
