Looking for new and better ways to get more done in the office? We take a look at some less obvious options you might not have tried. Best of all, there’s not a caffeine-laden drink in sight!
Yes, research has shown that the scent of peppermint is a proven productivity booster.
In one study, office workers who sniffed peppermint oils typed faster after smelling it.
Not keen on peppermint? Other natural scents such as lemon and basil can boost concentration in a similar way.
Another proven method for boosting productivity – having pets in the office lowers stress levels and raises motivation. Dogs are particularly beneficial, as they also encourage workers to get away from their desks and go for a walk.
If you can’t have a real live animal in the office, then virtual furry friends are the next best thing – the cuter and fluffier the better. A study conducted in Japan found that looking at images of cute kittens and puppies improves our ability to concentrate, leading to more accurate and focused work. Our recommendation: ten minutes of kitten videos daily.
No, really – according to Tom Gimbel of recruitment agency LaSalle Network, having a messy desk enhances productivity because being surrounded by chaos forces your mind to streamline and focus only on the task at hand. Lean office devotees take note.
Apparently, it helps to relieve stress and strengthen bonds with colleagues (except perhaps the ones you’re talking about), giving you an improved sense of wellbeing – and motivation.
Not all day – but working standing up for short periods will help you beat that afternoon lull when all you really want to do is take a nap. Maybe you could talk your boss into getting you a desk with in-built treadmill for an extra energy boost.
Proof that teachers aren’t always right – chewing gum aids focus and concentration, so try it when you feel your energy lagging during the post-lunch slump. Preferably peppermint flavour. While watching kitten clips.

Love this place
We rent an office here and it’s just such a lovely place to drive into everyday
Still love to walk around. I used to live in the big house at the top of the drive, it was Oak House then and I nursed at Ransom Hospital , Byron Ward which was on the left side of Ransom Hall car park. Oak House used to be Sisters accommodation. I think the main chef lived upstairs when I lived there and just me downstairs mostly. I loved it but had to keep my kitchen door closed because of the squirrels. Loved looking down the drive out of my bedroom and lounge windows, beautiful in Autumn and when it snowed, I worked at Ransom Hospital until it closed in 1987. Wonder why Oak House was later named Ash House? Lovely dining at Forever Green in the grounds whilst I reminisce.
Absolutely spot on as regards setting up a virtual office. Really friendly and helpful reception staff, with onsite meeting rooms available if needed. Very pleased.
Great place for taking pets a walk, lovely cafe with meeting rooms.
A great place
Brilliant place, they have all sorts of businesses there. A cafe, hypnotherapy, hypnopuncture as well many others. Worth a drive up just to see what's there. Furthermore, it's in lovely surroundings.
Just go there and walk for miles! Beautiful views from strawberry hill too.
