Productive office environment

There are always going to be days when you feel lethargic and unproductive at work. Nevertheless there are a number of ways to help improve your mood and boost your productivity, just using your surroundings.

Yorkshire Office Group offer a wide range of office furniture and utilities, all with the concept of helping with your productivity, mood and style. Here are our top suggestions to help boost your productivity at work, even on the most unproductive day.

  • Streamline your space

Before starting your day it is important to organise your space. Decluttering can help you focus more and feel more relaxed. Whether that’s organising your desk, your draws or your laptop, you will find yourself being able to push through more work and spend less time distracted or searching for things.

  • Colour your office and listen to music

Different colours have been known to affect everyone in different ways. The right kind of bright colours can boost your mood and your productivity almost instantly. Blue is great for calming and red for attention and detail. Add more colour to your office and watch your mood change almost instantly. Music has a similar effect of colour, if you listen to the right kind of music you may find your productivity increases and you remain calm and content.

  • Decorate your workplace

Just like colour, the knickknacks you keep around you can boost your mood and make you feel comfortable. Adding meaningful memorabilia can make you feel more successful and driven, and even more appreciated.

  • Prioritise and delegate

Focus on the more important tasks first and you’ll begin to feel really productive. In the same way you begin to delegate other, less urgent work, you’ll feel as though you spend your time working harder on the more important stuff without worrying about the rest of your work.

  • Move around and take breaks

Exercise is as good for the mind as it is for the body, and can have a big impact on productivity. Taking breaks and moving about can give your brain the time it needs to refocus with more oxygen and blood to help you with the more difficult tasks.
