As photographers, we have long hours of sitting on computers, our eyes focused on the screen. When you finally take a break, it is important to take a look around, see what is going on in the world. I believe that one of the most important parts of your work-space is making it personal. Our workspace should be visually appealing to us, we spend about a third of our day at work! One of my favorite quotes is by tony Dorsett. It keeps me going everyday.
"To succeed, you need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you." – Tony Dorsett
I challenge you to take a moment to think about what your ideal work-space would look like. What would make your work-space comfortable and you?
Take a look at my dream work-space and what I need to get for my space.
For me, adding living plants, photos, fresh flowers, lights, and candles are a must!
My house is full of candles, I constantly need at least one going to concentrate! For me, I love to mix the scent of several burning candles or even play with the scent in each room of my apartment. I’ll mix a Lavender candle with a Stress Relief candle, and it is ultimately the best scent ever. Try it out, experiment, and don’t be afraid!
When it comes to one candle, I defiantly love the Voluspa Japonica Candle Tins. Voluspa has been around for over ten years and creates a renowned label with signature coconut wax blends and gorgeous packaging. I highly recommend Crane Flower. It is a ripened grapefruit with geranium, lavender and nectar inspired by the bird of paradise flower. The next one on my list is French Cade Lavender, a refreshing blend of French cadewood, lavender, verbena and moss.
I know they say dim lighting isn’t the best for your eyesight when looking at a computer all day long, but I love the mixture of natural light with a soft string of light or candle light. Check these out!
Now get out there, do some shopping and get your work-space to feel and be like you!
