For those who have a home office or work space at home, how have you made it a space that motivates, inspires, and/or focuses you? I have a room that’s a home gym and office, and I feel like I can’t quite get the vibe right for productivity.

I actually brought some things from my classroom and hung them up to help inspire me. And that way when I do videos for the students and zoom meetings they feel inspired too!

I just know I can't have any distractions: TV, music, social media. I also take a quick stretch/drink break every hour.
