6 Ways To Make A Windowless Office Less Depressing

1. Have a desk plant

Desk plants help to make your work space look more vibrant. Not only that, some desk plants (eg snake plants or english ivy) also have purifying properties. These plants can help purify the air by absorbing toxins through the leaves and producing pure oxygen.

2. Picture of nature

Sometimes during work, it is nice to look out of the window every now and then to rest our eyes. However, if your office does not have any windows, having a picture of nature on your desk can be the focal point for you to rest your eyes on whenever you need a break from your computer screen.

3. Circadian Light

If you find that your windowless office space is affecting your mood, perhaps it could be because you are not getting enough sunlight (which is essential for human health and well-being.). Consider getting a circadian light, as studies have shown that circadian light emit out the same benefits as actual sunlight.

4. Listen to music

When you are feeling too unfocused, bored, or uninspired during a work day, play some music to lift your spirits up. Feeling uninspired? Spend 10 minutes or so listening to music that makes you feel pumped. Feeling unfocused? Play classical music as you work. Studies have shown that listening to classical music can help boost concentration and self-discipline.

5. Have a tidy desk

It can be easy to get even more overwhelmed or distracted if you have too many things on your desk. When you declutter your space, you also declutter your mind. Having a clean, tidy desk keeps you focused on your tasks and reduces distraction + procrastination.

6. Choose the right colors

The colors around you in your workspace can have an impact on your mood and productivity. In a windowless office, pick warm, neutral colours that can make you feel alert, give you better focus but are yet not too overwhelming.
