If you work in a healthcare setting, chances are you can’t do much to influence your physical surroundings. If, however, you work as a legal nurse consultant in an office, you can do a lot to create an environment that supports your productivity.
Whenever possible, have a lot of natural light in your office. Sufficient natural lighting will help you sleep better and longer at night. It decreases anxiety and stress and helps in concentration. It also improves your mood.
When possible, choose a room that gets a lot of natural light, i.e., not overly shaded by trees, or blocked by a big hill or mountain. In the northern hemisphere, a southern exposure gets the best lighting. If you have a choice of rooms, you can study your space to see which room gets the best light. If it’s feasible to make it an office, do so.
Avoid dim light or lighting from overhead fluorescent lights. Shop around for a desk lamp that simulates daylight. Also, when you take a break, walk around outside. This gives you both light and exercise.
Think about how the light is positioned in your LNC office.
You don’t want a reflection or glare on your computer monitor. You also don’t want to be squinting in the light. This means you’re better off not facing a window.
Color In Your LNC Office
Color is strongly related to light. The colors we have in our LNC offices can have a big effect on our moods and creativity.
Remember when the early iMacs came in different colors? They were very popular, especially the turquoise ones. This makes sense. Turquoise has the following traditional qualities: It’s associated with refreshment, emotional balance, tranquility, and serenity. It also strongly relates to creativity. No wonder people loved their iMacs.
Regardless of what any psychology-of-color chart tells you, consult yourself first. What colors do you really love? What do you like to wear? What colors immediately attract you?
Then step back a little. Many people claim that their favorite color is red, but that doesn’t mean they want a room with red walls. This color, though it can stimulate creativity and has an energizing quality, is also associated with anger and aggression. It’s not calming. If you love It, use small touches, like a red notebook or picture.
In general, it’s a good idea to avoid dark colors for walls.
They will tend to absorb rather than reflect light. Pale colors are best, but avoid pure white. Looking at it can produce strain, and it can be boring. However, accents of another color for windows and trims can soften the effect of white walls.
You can also place color accents on your desk. An amethyst or rose quartz crystal, a jade pencil box or bright pens are some of the ways you can brighten your desk and your LNC office. Chances are you will spend many hours a day in your LNC office. Make the environment support you.
