1/ Desk Plants

Em­ploy­ees who dec­o­rate their work­sta­tions with pho­tos and plants are 17% more pro­duc­tive, the Uni­ver­sity of Ex­eter found. Green­ery, in par­tic­u­lar, helps.

2/ Day­light Lamp

Harsh over­head light­ing dis­rupts our sleep hor­mone mela­tonin, es­pe­cially when used in the evening. Switch­ing to a gen­tler desk lamp tem­pers this re­sponse.

3/ Er­gonomic Chair

Most peo­ple sub­con­sciously crane their necks for­ward when star­ing at a screen, which strains the neck mus­cles. Ad­just your mon­i­tor to eye level and en­sure your chair al­lows for a com­fort­able pos­ture.

4/ Reusable Bot­tle

De­hy­dra­tion of even 1% be­low op­ti­mal can lead to poor fo­cus and lethargy. Buy a bot­tle free from BPA, a chem­i­cal in some plas­tics that can seep into wa­ter.

5/ Dyson Pure Cool™

In­door air pol­lu­tion can be up to five times worse than it is out­doors**.

The Dyson Pure Cool™ pu­ri­fy­ing fan senses and re­moves pol­lu­tants in real time to give you clean air while you work. It also projects cool air when you need it most, to of­fer a com­fort­able work­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

6/ Smart Sta­tionery

Typ­ing up your pre­sen­ta­tion notes may be con­ve­nient, but Prince­ton Uni­ver­sity found that putting pen to paper boosts the in­for­ma­tion you can re­tain.
