Optimum Surroundings

Good morning fellow bloggers!


I hope everyone is having a lovely, successful and motivated week! I’ve been feeling pretty awful this week, I hate being ill, but I still push myself to come into work and get on with my day.


How can we make ourselves be more productive and feel better without much effort?

One thing I find helps me instantly feel a bit brighter is the cleanliness, tidiness and appearance of my environments. For starters, working in an architectural practice means I am surrounded by heaps and heaps of paper with drawings on them. My boss in particular likes to put a whole trees worth on my desk every week! I’ve had to quickly improve my organisation skills by implementing some sort of order to this madness. Even if I only made everything look a bit neater it would make me feel better. I always believe that subconsciously things like this really affect our performance.

How can you stimulate your senses to improve your aura?

I was feeling a bit bored when simply sitting in my room watching TV (something I do too often). SOOOO I bought a candle and a diffuser! Both smell very sweet and fresh, but I’ve never owned one before and I feel like I have deprived myself of the joy. Our sense of smell is a huge factor in the way we feel, but such a small thing makes a big difference!

I feel like I already covered sight above, but just to conclude, the appearance and cleanliness of our surroundings has a subconscious effect on the way we feel!

Hearing…I don’t know about you, but I can’t work in a noisy environment, I just get too distracted and annoyed. If there’s nothing you can do about the noise, shove a pair of earphones in and block it all out.

I personally LOOOOVE fluffy, soft things like a faux fur throw! I have a collection of them and when it’s cold there’s nothing better than sitting under them and yes I’m weird and stroke them from time to time. I don’t think you’d look very professional sitting under one of those at your work desk, but I would suggest a stress ball, they’re great for fiddlers and fidgets like me!

I hope you’re now all on the hunt for a lovely scented candle….(you too guys)!

Moral: The littlest things can affect you as a whole!

    Hi there!

    It was a pleasure reading through this post of yours. At first, I didn’t really know what to expect from your title of “Optimum Surroundings”, but I fortunately clicked on it! Haha Thanks for sharing! I’m thinking that you could make your title more specific to include your bad mood, something like “Optimal Surroundings to Improve Mood”. Also, you can try adding more narrative feelings into how you felt when you tried the stuff you mentioned. One last thing, you may also try adding a photo or two for each post to give readers a better headstart to what to expect from each post.
    I’ll just end off my comment here. Thanks for sharing! 😀
