Work makes up a lot of time in our lives—too much, in fact, to feel unhappy when we’re there. Looking for a quick boost to improve your workdays? Try this advice Chris Boyce, CEO of Virgin Pulse to make your space a bit brighter.
“Your work environment can make or break your productivity—and take center stage in your happiness,” says Boyce. He suggests de-cluttering and organizing as a starting point, and then moving on to decorating. “Create a feeling of serenity with fresh flowers or plants, and include photos of family and friends to keep your spirits up.”
Another no-fail mood-booster: Keeping healthy snacks and a refillable water bottle handy—sometimes, maintaing a healthy blood sugar level and staying hydrated is half the battle.
