In just over a month I’ll be heading back to London and the plan is to continue my freelance work. This means much of my time will be spent working from home.
As much as I love writing, there are times when I’m feeling uninspired or when it feels like work.
So making my desk as appealing to work at as possible, helps me to want to spend time at my desk.
Here are the items I’m currently lusting over for my desk:
Silver glitter jar | Paperchase
Before I left for Tenerife, a friend gave me a homemade gratitude jar as a gift. Now I can add this beauty, which can serve a double purpose: a place for me to keep my ideas, goals and intentions and a remind to never dull my sparkle.
Wild and Wolf silver illuminated globe lamp | Paperchase
For those days when work actually feels like work, I can be inspired by my wanderlust. I can spin the globe, pick a destination and then start planning my next trip.
Know Yourself Prompt Cards | The School of Life
For those days when self-doubt threatens to creep in, just reading the words “Know Yourself” may be enough of a reminder to keep the insecurities at bay. If not, I can use one of the cards.
Notice board | Ikea
I am now planning each day before I start, so having something this gorgeous to display my daily goals and intentions is perfect.
When you’re working from home it can be easy to become distracted and lose focus.
These items provide a constant source of motivation, in an aesthetically pleasing way.
