Office progress

As I mentioned, I was going to see our office for the first time last week, and here are the first pictures from there! I absolutely love it. Everything’s still really unfinished with furniture and decoration, so I’m gonna do a better office post after everything is done. What I love the most: the big windows, light and white high space, and of course our office crew. We’ll soon have some pink details, lots of wall decoration, carpets, plants and other cute things. A pink velvet sofa arrived actually just after taking these pictures.

I’ve learned it’s so important for me to do work outside my home. If not every day, still many days a week. Get dressed, have fresh air on your way to “work” (which sets the right focused mindset) and have people around you. I concentrate so much better when there are no “home distractions”. So easily when I’m home I suddenly start cleaning, playing with Minnie, spend my time on more unnecessary things without realizing it. You know what I mean? Working in cafes is also something I love, but it’s nice to now have a place where I’ll meet my colleagues and have a little support group! And spending evenings home is so much more enjoyable when you haven’t been there all day long. (But this is all just how it works for me, I know some people doing the home office situation a lot better.)

Wishing you all efficient energetic week! (The sun outside is doing wonders for me!)

Kuten mainitsin, olin viime viikolla menossa ensimmäistä kertaa käymään toimistollamme, tässäpä ekat sneak peekit sieltä! Vielä keskeneräistä, juuri kuvien ottamisen jälkeen saapui pinkki samettisohva ja vähän muitakin juttuja. Mutta seuraavat kuvat täältä pian kun kaikki on valmista. Korkea valoisa tila, pinkit yksityiskohdat ja kotoinen tunnelma, ihanat bloggaajakollegat ja kiva ympäristö – siinä mun toimistomme suosikkijutut.

Oon oppinut ajan myötä, ettei kotoa käsin työskentely ole niin mun juttu. Kyllä kotitoimistopäivät viikottain menee, kunhan pitää myös rutiinina sen että menee tekemään töitä poissa kotoakin. Pukeutuu kunnolla, saa raikasta ilmaa matkalla “töihin” (joka asettaa jo sen oikean mielentilan) ja on ihmisten ympärillä. Keskityn niin paljon paremmin, kun ei ole niitä kotiärsykkeitä. Sen minkä saisin esimerkiksi tunnissa aikaan muualla, vastaa ehkä kahta tuntia missä saan sen aikaan kotona. Tarpeeksi rauhallisissa kahviloissa työskentelystä tykkään myös, mutta kiva kun nyt on paikka jossa myös tavata samalla työkavereita!

Ihanaa ja energistä viikkoa kaikille! Auringon vaikutus ainakin omaan vireystasooni on nyt niin huomattavissa, jatkuisipa nämä päivät…

    I agree, I think it’s so important for mental health to leave the house and be surrounded by others. I’m a student so could also spend days at home in my room doing my work, but just going to sit in the coffee shop for an hour to do some work helps improve my mood massively, as does sitting in the library with other students.

    I´m the other way around. I would never want to work anywhere else but from my home (read bed haha). But I can understand the feeling of getting ready and have somewhere to be. That´s why I started working as a dog walker beside my social media. Just to get out more but also have a more social life 🙂

      Oh, that’s amazing if you can do it from home like that! Walking Minnie out in the middle of my home office days is the best thing though, so I know what you mean! x

      I think many people like the idea of working from home, but then what it actually is… Not the best thing 😀 You know those weeks you are sick and just spend it home? It feels a little like that for me! And thank you for the comment ❤️

    I totally agree with the fact that you stop appreciating your own home when you are there all the time. Happens to me very often when I am not regular at faculty and when I study at home..

    Hi Marianna,

    I follow your blog since a long time but I’ve never commented before this day. I’m totally a lurker but today, I’m going for it ^^ I really enjoy reading your blog, your photos are always gorgeous, well composed and more important I have the feeling your are authentic and honest in your posts, it’s quite rare nowadays 😉 Reading your blog is like a beautiful and sweet getaway for me 🙂

    Happy you’ve found a beautiful place to work, it’s such important to be surrounded by a pretty environment and supportive colleagues!

    I must admit I don’t read you regullary but I really love to come back to your blog 😉 But now I don’t know what would you like to do in your new office and why you need a crew? Would you like to do some colourful magazine or would it be some projects like new fashion designs? 🙂
    I red that someone has question about your beloved blogger. When it goes about me I really like swedish blogger – Kenza Zouiten and her blog – kenzas.se 😉
