This week I read a lovely blog post from Mama Gena, titled 7 ways to turn on your work day. This inspired me to share one of my favorite products to beautify your work desk. I think I must be on the same wave length as her at the moment, as this is my second blog post that is inspired by Mama Gena! You can read my other one here if you like.
I’ve been struggling at work this week, as I have had a nasty flu, and have not been very motivated to work at all. In fact, I’ve been a big wet blanket, feeling very sorry for myself! When I read her article it gave me a spark, and got me thinking, that something beautiful to spice up your work desk would make a great gift!
Dress up your desk
Number 4 on Mama Gena’s list was to dress up your work desk. I totally agree with her that having a lovely space to work in is so important. I find that if I have a pot plant, or fresh flowers on my desk it gives me a boost every time I look at them. Lately I have been lighting a candle and the lovely scent makes me feel indulgent and puts a big smile on my face. So I thought I’d share a gift from my Zazzle shop, my Vintage Hummingbird Mouse Pad.
How gorgeous would this look on you or your gift-ee’s desk, with a lovely bunch of soft pink flowers next to it? Stunning I think! I’ve added a link below to view my Vintage Hummingbird Range on Zazzle, there is also a notebook, mouse, USB drive and lots more! Lots of lovely items to bring happiness and beauty to your desk.
Dance, on the hour, every hour
Number 3 on her list stood out for me as well. It brought back happy, long forgotten memories of my last office job. I worked in the marketing department of a large real estate company, and it could be very stressful. At 4pm most afternoons, we would put on a Michael Jackson song and dance our hearts out – it lifted the mood in the office, made us laugh, and gave us all a bit of exercise.
I don’t have a gift idea for an office dance break – unless of course you need a beautiful Bluetooth speaker? Which I will shamelessly promote here!
