Decorating your cubicle might seem like the best way to avoid doing real work, but according to a recent study, having control over at least one thing about your workspace increases productivity. Researchers at the University of Exeter in the UK found that workers who have some control over the design, layout and decor in their office report being happier, healthier, and show a 32% boost in productivity at work. We never thought our desk position could do so much.

      I bought my own desk accessories, brought in a pretty plant in a cute planter and did my little bulletin board up nicely and it does give me a sense of control and makes me happy every time I sit down in my little space.
