Set Up Your Workspace Like A Pro

Set Up Your Workspace

Setting up your workspace may seem like a menial task, but it may surprise you just how many factors there are to consider when it comes to getting it done right.

You spend a large portion of your day working, so your work should only take place in an environment that is going to optimise your productivity and efficiency. This in turn will result in a smoother workflow, and most importantly; a better end result.  With a few simple hacks, you can say goodbye to your poorly set up workspace and hello to getting things done faster, more efficiently and with a better overall mindset.

Set Up Your Workspace

Hacks & Tips To Start Working Like A Pro

Experimentation is key when it comes to setting up your workspace. The optimal organised and productive workspace depends on the individual. While there may be a few hard and fast rules when it comes to posture and seating arrangement, there are also plenty of factors that entirely come down to how you work, so you may find yourself having to experiment a little before working out what’s right for you.

  • De-clutter and keep it minimal. The more clutter you have lying around, the harder it is going to be to keep everything in order. In turn, you’ll find yourself feeling a lot more flustered when it comes to deadlines, or juggling multiple projects. Keep your space clean and minimal. A cluttered surrounding will only lead to a cluttered mindset. This not only applies to just the physical layout of your work area, but to your computer as well, so make sure to always close those unwanted tabs and files. 
  • Say goodbye to Post It notes. Post It notes are great in theory; they’re colourful, they’re sticky and they’re always on hand. However, this can cross dangerous territory as a workstation congested with Post It notes will start to feel out of control. Luckily, there are a plethora of free task management platforms out there that can mimc the same result of a Post It note, but with less distraction. A personal favourite of ours is Trello.  Get all of those tasks – big or small – out of your head and off the Post It notes, and get them onto an online task management platform. And while the workload will remain the same, it will feel significantly smaller once you’ve cleared yourself from a sea of coloured Post It notes.
  • Kick hardware faults to the curb sooner, rather than later. If you experience reoccurring technical faults with existing devices such as your computer, printer or connections, finding a solution should serve as a top priority. Sure, we don’t always want to fork out the extra money to fix and/or replace these things, but working with difficult hardware that causes hours of frustration is only going to take that precious work time away from you. So do yourself a favour – sort that hardware out!
  • Good posture is the basis of good workspace ergonomics. You’ve probably heard this one before, but it really is a valid point. Always ensure that your computer monitor is well centred and roughly arm’s length away from you. Your eye level should meet the top of your computer screen, and your wrists should be able to stay mostly flat and straight when reaching your keyboard. More than anything, sit up in your chair straight! While this may be tricky to consciously remember throughout the day, there are plenty of solutions when it comes to back support. Whether that be a standing desk, lumbar support devices, or just a good ol’ fashioned couch cushion from home, there are a variety of ways to assist with supporting your back. Do it, your work (and health) will thank you for it.

  • Double Your Monitors. It may sound a little excessive to some, but having that extra monitor can be a lifesaver. If you’re someone who works a lot with spreadsheets – or with a lot of fine text for that matter – then a second monitor will save you hours of wasted time throughout the course of a year. Long gone are the days of flicking between multiple tabs, pages and spreadsheets. It’s not about doing two things at once, but rather having a better overview of your given task.
