Remote working is quickly becoming a normal way of living for a lot of us! Understandably, people are doing whatever they can to make the home office a stress-free environment so that they can concentrate on being productive!
Unfortunately, working from home can make people feel very isolated. Where they would normally interact with colleagues and clients in an office setting, they're now confined to their own four walls for the majority of the week. It's a big lifestyle adjustment that some people have taken to easier than others.
That being said, there are a lot of benefits that come with home working. You don't have to commute which saves time and money, you don't have to make small talk with the colleagues you don't really see eye-to-eye with and you can enjoy the comfort of your own home (you can even stay in your pyjamas if you want!)
If you're looking for ways to make homeworking a more enjoyable, connecting with nature can really help! Spending time in nature can really boost your mental health, but we know getting outside isn't always feasible during the working day. Here's what you can do to connect with nature from your home office desk.
If you're able to, we'd recommend positioning your office desk so that it's near a window. Having natural sunlight in the room will really boost your mood, but it will also allow you to spend some time observing nature in between tasks.
Here at Really Wild Bird Food, we offer a huge selection of nature guide books that you could keep on/near your desk. Instead of scrolling Instagram during your lunch break, why not use a nature guide to look for some friendly faces outside your window. We guarantee this will make you feel less isolated and more in touch with nature.

Bird Feeding Station
Want to attract more visitors to your garden? We're sure that adding a feeding station (or a few different feeding stations) will do the job! We'd recommend putting the feeders somewhere you can see them from your desk so that you can observe the different kinds of birds that pay you a visit.
If you've visited our site before, you'll know we offer lots of different bird feeders in all shapes and sizes. You can find everything from hanging feeders, to suet feeders and window feeders (perfect for up-close encounters).

Who said that your new visitors have to come and go? If you install a cosy next box near your office window, you might be fortunate to have a family of little birds move in right next to you. We're sure that after a few visits, you'll become quite attached to your feathered office friends!
Got a specific species of bird in mind? We have next boxes for different kinds of birds including swallows, house martins, robins and more. Now is the perfect time of year to invest in nest boxes too, the weather is getting colder and birds are looking for places to stay warm and sheltered.

Another great way to connect with wildlife from your home office is to start taking photos of the wildlife you see. This will give you something memorable to look back onto remind you of the home office perks but will also give you something to speak about with friends, family and colleagues. You never know, you might even start a trend and get people from all areas of your life involved with wildlife during this unsettling time.
