7 Genius Office Hacks That Will Improve Your Working Environment
Try energizing scents
Every office should have a device that emits energizing scents, whether we are talking about an organization with many employees or people who work from home. However, if your work mates don’t like this idea, you can opt for scented candles or essential oils that can be kept on your desk. These energizing scents will help you improve your work flow and increase your productivity.
“Light a candle or fill an essential oil diffuser with energizing scents and only use it in your workspace during work hours,” recommends Krista Karstens, a consultant with Pioneer Management Consulting. “When you use it every day, it reminds your brain of past productivity, and signals at the start of each day that it’s time to work,” she added.
It is a well-known fact that successful companies understand the impact of scent on workplace productivity. They know that you don’t have to renovate the whole building to make the workplace more productive, but it’s important to pay attention to the small details and improve them – and the scent of the room is one of them. How does it work? According to experts, an energizing scent can improve employees’ moods by up to 40 percent and they will stay 18 percent longer in a room that smells nice.
The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) said that aromatherapy is “the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind, and spirit.”
