Have you been working from home since the pandemic started? Remote work has seen a significant rise since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. If remote work is not your preference, you can try several practices for increasing your productivity at home. One practical suggestion is to use your sunroom as a home office.
According to several studies, sunlight can increase levels of serotonin in the brain, which leads to increased calmness and focus. Furthermore, natural light can increase creativity, memory, and learning potential. However, you should be careful not to get too much sun, because other studies have shown that too much sun on hot days can impair cognitive performance.
In light of this, it might be a good idea to outfit your sunroom for remote work. Add enough curtains to let in a good amount of light, but not enough to impair your concentration. There are multiple shade or curtain patterns that you might consider for your sunroom, such as roller shades, honeycomb shades, or even shades made from bamboo.
Also, be sure to purchase some good sunroom furniture from a retailer like Wicker Paradise. When exposed to prolonged intense sunlight, most types of indoor furniture will sustain sun damage such as photobleaching/faded colors. Keeping your sunroom’s aesthetics clean and vibrant can help improve your mood while working.
You may also want to work with a bottle of water or coffee nearby so you can feel refreshed and ready to meet the day as you harness sunlight to improve your productivity and mood.
