Fancy an outside office?

See that snap above? That’s my view as I’m writing to you.

I usually work from my home office but today me and my Mac went off the beaten track. The motivation to escape my little corporate cave went well beyond the lovely long black I picked up en route.

I’m celebrating Work With Nature Week — an initiative that encourages us worker bees to swap an hour in the office for an hour in the outdoors. It’s a bloomin’ great idea from The Nature Conservancy Australia and you don’t have to work from home to make it work.

Bored of the boardroom? Grab your colleagues and have a walk ‘n’ talk at a local park or park your team seaside … you get my drift. You’ve still got another few days to join in (Work With Nature Week wraps up on Sunday).

For added inspiration, I’m sharing a few locations from which I’ll be setting up my #greendesk in the coming days.

What say you? Do you fancy sharing an office with Mother Nature?

  • Oh what a fab idea! If you have to work it might as well be somewhere lovely.

    Nice view for sure Tonia. Hope all is well in your world. I always feel refreshed when I get out of the office and into nature at lunchtime – makes you feel more productive too.

      Oh Merilyn, I’m really going to try and break up the work day a little more. I sure did enjoy that #greendesk! Hope all is well at your end. Can you believe we’re in April already? x
