[fa icon="calendar"] 03.14.2019 / by Demetree Real Estate Services


Being at your office desk for long hours can get tiring and eventually can make you feel unmotivated and disengaged. However, adding a few things in your office space can make a difference in your work productivity and performance.

Try these 5 office space hacks to improve your work life.

1. Add a touch of greenery to your office space.

Research shows that having small indoor plants in your spacious office such as a succulent, cactus or other low maintenance plants can improve air quality, increase your attention span, productivity, lower stress and even improve your mood and creativity.

2. Display a meaningful photograph on your desk.

A family picture, a picture of your pet, your dream vacation spot or your favorite quote or Bible verse on your desk can liven up your workspace. Add something to make you smile and inspire you throughout the day. You can even find inexpensive picture frames and motivational artwork for your office space at the dollar store or craft store.

3. Invest in a decent pair of noise-cancelling headphones.

Working in a noisy environment can increase your blood pressure, which can then take a toll to your overall well being. Think about investing in a decent pair of noise-cancelling headphones or earphones  to use when the office gets busy. You can add music too, which can help you work faster and more efficiently and it may help you do the tedious tasks more easily. 

4. Use a Letter Tray and Other Desk Organizers.

Too much clutter exhausts your mind and slows you down. Keeping your desk organized not only gives your boss and colleagues a good impression, but it also helps you to be more productive and generally disciplined. Think about getting a multi-tiered letter tray to make the paper stacks much nicer and neater. You can also use a pen holder, mug, bowl, or other container to keep your pens, pencils, markers, scissors, sticky notes and other desk essentials organized and within reach.

5. Get a Desk Toy to Relieve Stress.

Every worker should have at least one desk toy that helps him or her relieve stress and get back on track. Keep a few different stress balls, a fidget cube or spinner in your desk for those tense moments. There are various kinds of stress toys like kneading erasers, small puzzles and other stress-relieving toys that can be useful.

These five office space hacks will help you work more efficiently and productively, creating a space that better supports you.
