Whether your office is just big enough to fit a desk and a chair or you have a huge corner office space on one of the top floors. Having too many things just sitting around can be quite chaotic and can have a negative influence on your productivity. So the first step is to clear your desk. Get rid of everything that is not essential. You can store those things in your desk drawers or get rid of them completely. You should avoid being a hoarder, especially when it comes to paperwork. All non-essential papers should be shredded and disposed of, this will clear up a lot of space in your office. Don’t forget to do the same on your computer, delete all the unnecessary files and clear your desktop. So now that you got rid of all the clutter it’s time to discuss comfortability.

Increase the comfort level of your office

In order to stay productive hours on end, it is important that you are comfortable. Sitting for long stretches of time can be quite painful for our back. If your computer screen isn’t at the right height it can lead to chronic neck pain and discomfort. Choosing the right seating option for your office is not that easy, you need to make sure you get the perfect one for your posture. Companies like Sit Spot can provide you with a vast array of seating solutions so that you can make the ideal choice for your office and your back. In addition don’t forget about elevating your screen to the eye level, so that you can preserve your neck.

Make sure you have the right lighting

Lack of adequate light in your office can lead to tiredness and lack of energy which can have a negative effect on your productivity. The best possible light for your office is, of course, natural light. Today a lot of companies are opting for open concept office space because it allows for more natural light.

In case that space, where you work, does not offer a lot of natural light, you can mix in lighting fixtures. Make sure that you opt for led lights as they are the second best thing to sunlight for both your mood and health. Light sources that are high in blue light, like led lights, can actually suppress our melatonin production, and as you know this is the hormone that facilitates sleep. Don’t forget about colours, desaturated colours reflect light more than dark shades, so painting your walls in white or pale colours will make the room seem brighter.

Green up

A recent study has shown that workers perform better when household plants are present at the office. So by bringing a bit more greenery into your office space, you will lighten up the atmosphere, making it a more pleasant working environment where you can focus better on your work. In addition, the higher level of concentration can be attributed to the plants’ ability to reduce excess carbon dioxide in the air.This in return will lead to increased overall productivity in the office space.

All the above-mentioned elements can contribute to a well rounded and organized office space that will provide you with the optimal conditions for increased work productivity. The time we spend at our office should not be draining, and by making the space itself better and more functional we are contributing to our overall health.
