As we try to find our comfort zone in the new way we are working, the one thing that never changes is that we each have our own unique way that we make a difference. We create and contribute in our own way. We are inspired and motivated differently. We have individual needs for comfort and nurturing.
Whether you have claimed the sofa, a small corner of your kitchen, or you’re fortunate enough to have an entire space dedicated to work, I hope you are finding comfort there.
The power of decorating can remind you who you are and why you do what you do. Maybe you received an award for an accomplishment or outstanding service. Consider placing it near a candle to reflect on that moment again. Maybe you can print out some happy messages you received from coworkers and place them in an attractive box. Maybe there are some books that helped you to develop into the professional you are today. All of these items can serve as symbols and placing them together creates a powerful story. Pull them close to you as you work and notice how uplifted you can feel.
What you place in your environment matters.
