“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” –Pablo Picasso
Being distracted at work isn’t always a bad thing. You didn’t read that wrong—we know that we’ve told you to keep your mind from wandering throughout your day and to keep focused, but if the object of your distraction is a work of art, it can boost your productivity, increase your well-being and lower stress. Art is much more than aesthetic—it’s not just a background decoration. Bringing art into the workplace can actually combat tunnel vision and make an otherwise cold work environment feel more inspiring.
Here’s how hanging some artwork can boost your productivity and keep any mental clouds at bay.
Art Inspires Creativity
It’s much easier to feel motivated and inspired in an office that demonstrates innovation visually. The easiest way to do just that is with art! Art can work to unlock creative potential and generate innovative ideas. These ideas can lead to thinking outside the box and help improve processes that are stale, unlock fresh perspective and lead to new business practices.
