12 Office Desk Hacks to Improve Your Productivity (Infographic)
A few slight modifications to your space could change your productivity and focus.
Sitting at a desk all day long can get tiring. However, if you set up your space just right, it doesn't have to be. In fact, a few small changes can make major differences in maximizing performance and productivity.
To start, add a nice plant to your area -- research shows that exposure to the color green makes you more productive. You should also try to ramp up the lighting -- when you have more light around you, you'll be more alert. So purchase a lamp or small light that you can place on your desk, and turn it on when you first start your day.
Chewing gum, noise-cancelling headphones and stress toys are other great tools to invest in. It's been said that chewing gum can boost your concentration, and toys will help relieve any stressful feelings during tense moments. And being able to block out noise when the office gets busy is a key to boosting productivity.
