Making the Perfect Hot Chocolate At Work

The dynamics of our labor life are changing and more companies each day understand the importance of creating a positive and relaxed work environment so that their employees can become more productive.

This particularly counts for those employees who are spending their working hours in cubicles, minding their own business and finishing the daily workload. While cubicles might seem the perfect solution to save space and thus money, some people might feel locked up, especially if their cubicle has nothing personal about it.

A way to improve the work environment, is allowing the workers to add a personal touch, for example by bringing in plants, pictures of their family and kids or even some other personal belongings they really like having close when hard at work.

A personal preference of mine is to have a way to prepare a nice frothy cappuccino or even a hot chocolate whenever I feel like it, and for that reason I have installed a Froth Au Lait Mini Stainless milk frother, that can help me prepare both. 

For some it might be a bit of an exaggeration, but I love being able to sip on a freshly made cappuccino or any of the luxury brands hot chocolates and while a milk frother may seem like a too extreme gadget to bring into work, for me it is the best thing I have ever done.


Christmas Is Coming To Your Cubicle!

Only a few more weeks left and Christmas will be there again. Most stores have already started the Christmas theme and decorations, and while some people feel it is still a bit early to think about it, the time is coming to create some Christmas atmosphere in your work cubicle as well!

Now, there is no need to spend tons of money to change your work place, just by placing a few cheap Christmas gift ideas or decorations, you can already get a wonderful result, that will bring a smile to your face every morning when you arrive at work.

One of my favorite things to use as a decoration are origami christmas ornaments, which I get to make with my kids at home. These ornaments are a really cheap solution that mean a lot on a personal level. Every time you get to look at those ornaments in your cubicle, you will not only feel the Christmas spirit, but you can almost touch the quality time you have spent with the kids, preparing them while enjoying that hot cocoa recipe you tested out over the weekend.

And that is what it is really about when you start thinking of decorating your cubicle this Christmas. Make something special of it, make your cubicle feel like your home, and decorate it with ornaments that really mean something to you. That way, only a few special touches are needed, without overdoing it and feeling crowded in your space of work.
