Color Me Productive: If possible, paint your office so it best suites you. If you work better in a calmer environment, use gentle colors. If you work better in a livelier environment, use bold colors. If you can’t repaint your office, try and make the office supplies that you bring in those colors.

Bring The Outside World In: Keep your office as “natural” as possible. Be sure to leave the window’s open and let in fresh air if you can. If you work from a corporate office and this isn’t possible, just put a plant somewhere in your workspace. Plants have been proven to increase productivity and leave you feeling happier.
