To keep a balance between your workplace and family, you can start with putting a framed photo of your family members at your desk. Instead of placing a huge frame, you can keep two to three small frames to cover all sides of your desk as you will be able to pay attention to them. Remember that if you place large frames at your desk, they will keep distracting you and the level of your performance at work will fall.
To make your cubicle attractive, you can add a flower of your choice and put it in a vase. It is your choice weather you want to keep fresh flowers or the artificial ones, as the latter ones are easy to keep.
You can also pin motivational quotes to your workplace that might drive you to work hard in order to achieve success. You can also paste your favourite cartoon character and enjoy it whenever you feel like taking a break.
Keep your pens in colourful jars to make your desk look attractive.
