The Perfect Workspace?

The Perfect Workspace?

We don’t think about this all too much, but our work is not shaped just by who we are and what we believe about our work, but also by the place in which we actually work – our workspace.

So I thought this article from 99U, which explores ways to optimize our workspaces based on recent psychology and neuroscience findings, was interesting. For instance:

In a 2011 study, hundreds of undergrads looked at computer-generated pictures of room interiors and rated those filled with curvilinear (rounded), as opposed to rectilinear, furniture as more pleasing and inviting. Another study out this year found that people rated curvy, rounded environments as more beautiful than straight-edged rectilinear environments and that the rounded spaces triggered more activity in brain regions associated with reward and aesthetic appreciation.

Not all of us have the luxury of changing up our surroundings, but even small things can make a difference, and I think it’s neat to reflect on how God made us to respond in different ways to our varying environments. What have you done in your workspace?
