There are some clever people paid lots of money to study how we feel at work with a view to improving our time at work. It would be a shame not to take some of their ideas on board! We all know about the need to take a break from what we are doing ideally every 30 / 40 minutes. It refocuses the mind and keeps us alert. But other things can keep us productive and more importantly happy in our work – sitting up straight in our seats, decluttering our work stations, ‘beautifying’ our surroundings and working in the optimum temperature – not too hot and not too cold. A few changes that needn’t cost the earth or cause major chaos really CAN make our time at work that little bit more palatable.
