I'm currently sitting at my desk, and was wondering what to write for today's blog post. I have a candle burning, and some other must-haves in my space, and thought I would share these things! They help me create a productive + pleasant workspace for me, and promote my creativity :) Enjoy!
1. A scented candle
I have never been a candle person, and always thought the idea of buying candles was silly + frivolous. Well, I stopped into Ross because I love looking for deals, and found this candle and couldn't leave it on the shelf because it smelled so good. I later realized it's called the Tinder Flame, which is seriously funny, but it adds a great vibe to my workspace.
2. A day planner
Making a list of what I have to get done each day, is totally necessary for me. If I don't write it down, it won't get done! This year I decided to try out The Day Designer, and I absolutely love it...more about that soon! But having my to-do list on my desk right next to my computer helps me stay on track.
3. Water + coffee!
This might be obvious, but staying hydrated helps you stay focused. First thing in the morning, I grab this mason jar tumbler, fill it with water, and down it. You get about a 1/4 of your daily water out of the way! Then I make a homemade iced coffee for the rest of my morning. After that I try to switch back to water, but if more coffee is necessary, I'm not opposed ;)
I hope that adding one or more of these things to your workspace will liven up your workspace and creative flow! What is an essential for you at your desk?
Sending positive + creative vibes your way!
