8 Products to Stash in Your Desk for the Perfect Workday Pick-Me-Up
Because we all deserve a little self-care between long meetings.
From harsh fluorescent lights to uncomfortable desk chairs, offices aren’t typically known for offering five-star comfort. With back-to-back meetings and a mile long to-do list, the distractions of an uncomfortable workspace can lead to less enjoyable workdays. However, creating a work space you actually look forward to presiding over can help increase your productivity—and even boost your creative juices.
Whether you're working from home, posting up in a co-working space, or powering through the workday in a cubicle, stock up on these little luxuries that will help you get through the day.
