Changing Your Space, Improving Your Outlook

By Kimberly Hemesath | January 26, 2017

Lots of studies have shown that changing your space – a workspace, a living space, or just cleaning your car – can improve your outlook, bring calm, and even improve productivity. I just changed mine, and I can affirm that it’s true.

While there are many ways to improve your work environment, a physical change in workspace is very effective for me. It forces me to wipe the slate clean, literally. Everything gets dusted. Papers that cluttered my desk have been removed – either filed away or recycled. Client folders are organized by project stage, supplies have found their way back into desk drawers, and personal mementos are arranged to make the space feel warm and welcoming.

I’ve spent the last week getting settled into my new space, one of our conference rooms. It’s been refreshing. I feel a sense of clarity and renewed focus in my new environment, partly because everything is so clean, but also because of the quiet. I have a door. As an added bonus: I can play my music without disturbing the rest of the office. And I can light a candle (one of my favorite things) to instantly relax and feel comfortable. The aroma keeps me awake and energized.

Its wonderful to know that changing your space can positively effect your productivity and mood! Every day I leave work, I’m excited to come back and spend more time in my new office!

Kimberly Hemesath has been on the designRoom team since 2013. She has managed our studio, now she manages pretty much every aspect of our client relationships. What does that mean? It means Kimberly cares for the day-to-day well being of designRoom clients. Without them, we are nothing. So without her, we’re in trouble. Client relationships mean everything, so Kimberly has a big job, which she performs with determination, patience, and a smile. Kimberly will guide client work from proposal through to completion, serving as a liaison between client and creative team. She will ensure everyone on the team understands exactly what a client wants — determining goals and objectives, personal and organizational preferences, needs, and budgets. Kimberly will also guide creative and planning presentations and timelines, as well as completing creative briefs. Most of all, Kimberly makes sure that all work flows smoothly from our clients, into our studio, and back to our clients, meeting every objective. A graduate of Miami University of Ohio, Kimberly earned a degree in Marketing and a minor in Psychological Pathology. She’s worked at Yelp and the Phoenix New Times. She loves chocolate (required of all dR staff), but not coffee. Which is just weird.
