By: Valeria Ramos
With thousands of people still working from home, many will have already created productive routines for accomplishing tasks. However, with the start of a new season, it doesn’t hurt to learn new ways to make WFH life cozier, yet just as productive for the fall.
Make a work from home playlist
Spending hours at your desk can become instantly more enjoyable with the sound of your favorite music playing in the background. Creating a playlist of songs you love that is not too loud or distracting is a great way to bring some comfort and liveliness into your workspace. Not only can music boost your mood, but it can also help relieve anxiety and improve focus according to some studies.
Light a candle
Nothing says fall like the smell of pumpkin spice, apples, and vanilla. No matter your choice of scent, working with a calming fragrance in the air can help you feel more relaxed and in some cases, even feel more productive. Research has shown that candle scents such as peppermint and cinnamon can stimulate cognitive senses, giving the brain a boost of alertness and memory. Check out a list of our favorite scents here.
Wear comfortable clothes
Arguably the greatest aspect of working from home is being able to stay in pajamas all day if you so choose. From comfy sweatpants and your favorite tee to fuzzy socks and flannel, wearing what makes you feel the most comfortable can add an element of relaxation to your workday. One of our favorite loungewear brands is Joah Brown, whose pieces are comfortable and effortlessly cool.
