To make all your re­la­tion­ships stronger, be kinder to your­self.

If you spend most of your time in an of­fice, the colours in your en­vi­ron­ment inevitably af­fect your mood and con­se­quently, your productivity and be­hav­iour. Switch up your en­ergy by per­son­al­is­ing your im­me­di­ate en­vi­ron­ment with colour­ful desk ac­ces­sories. The idea is that bright colours stim­u­late while dim­mer colours soothe.

BLUE

Opt for hues of blue if you work in the cre­ative field. Sur­round your­self with this calm­ing colour – you will find that it helps you gen­er­ates ideas bet­ter. Blue also im­proves your ef­fi­ciency and fo­cus as you go about your tasks. Plus, this serene shade also pro­motes well-be­ing and hap­pi­ness.

GREEN

Turn to Mother Na­ture if you yearn for some tran­quil­lity amidst your daily of­fice frenzy. Keep a cou­ple of ar­ti­fi­cial pot­ted plants at your desk to re­store your sense of bal­ance. That will al­low you to ap­proach tasks with a clear mind. The lovely hues of green also lift your mood and in­crease your ef­fi­ciency by re­mind­ing you to keep your cool.

YEL­LOW

De­sign your desk with yel­low ac­ces­sories – the in­fec­tious en­ergy that this pos­i­tive colour ra­di­ates will heighten your op­ti­mism and cre­ativ­ity. If you find this vivid colour over­whelm­ing, opt for muted shades in­stead.

RED

This in­tense, pas­sion­ate colour im­me­di­ately boosts your en­ergy with its fiery na­ture. It’s per­fect for those in ac­tive jobs, as red con­veys phys­i­cal power and strength. Pro­ceed with cau­tion if you are de­sign­ing your en­vi­ron­ment with red, as this bright hue may end up dis­tract­ing in­stead of em­pow­er­ing you.

WHITE

Although this ster­ile colour does not en­er­gise you to at­tack your to-do list with gusto, white is a won­der­ful colour that projects spa­cious­ness. Work­ing in an en­vi­ron­ment with this neu­tral colour min­imises distractions as you tackle tasks that re­quire a lot of fo­cus.
