10 Office Gadgets to Improve Your Thinking and Alertness at Work [Infographic]

Office Gadgets can play a vital role in our productivity. It’s no secret that your performance at work will shape the trajectory of your career. That’s why having a desk that’s optimized for performance is crucial for those who are looking to stay focused on throughout the day. Here are ten desk hacks you can use to improve your thinking and awareness at work.

1. Add a Dry Erase Board to the Desk

Having a place to brainstorm, jot down memos, and create to-do lists will have a positive impact on performance. A dry erase board at the desk will boost problem-solving and keep you focused on your daily goals.

2. Get a USB Cup Warmer

Keeping your cup of coffee hot will keep you fresh without walking back and forth in the morning. This hack will naturally boost focus during what can serve as the most productive hours of the day.

3. Get a Fidget Spinner

Sometimes the best productivity hack is taking your mind off work for a few minutes. During this time, whirling a fidget spinner can help still the mind, boost concentration, and decrease the amount of stress you feel during tight deadlines.

4. Go Wireless

Mobile devices can do wonders to your productivity, but having your desk cluttered with wires can have an impact on your flow. Having a wireless matt charging your mobile electronics while you work will allow you to seamlessly transition from using your electronics to charging them. The result is more focus and the subtle feeling of freedom.

5. Cable Management 

Having a way to consolidate the wires inside of your workspace will give you the feeling of a more organized desk. Having wires everywhere is frustrating, and cleaning up those loose strings will make your desk feel more open, clean, and productive.

6. Get a Wearable 

Wearables are the perfect way to help you monitor your stress levels and keep yourself in the zone. The more overwhelmed we feel during the day, the less productive we are. Identifying when you’re stressed will allow you to manage your emotions throughout the day. The result is a more mental focus on the task at hand and increased production.

7. Keep Track of your Things

Smart stickers are perfect for those who love to misplace office supplies. Luckily, there are fancy stickers that sync to your phone and let you know how far away they are. It can work on items up to a hundred feet away from the phone.

8. Get a Pocket Printer

Office printers can be the death of productivity, but having a big printer at your desk isn’t worth space. Luckily, getting a pocket printer will allow you to easily print off the documents you need during the workday without leaving your desk. They are small, easy to use, and they will keep you in your groove.

9. Get a 2-in-1 Laptop 

If you’re looking to be insanely productive and you like to interact with tablets, getting a computer that can transition into a tablet will transform your productivity. It helps you keep your notes and files organized in one place, and it gives you the ability to stay productive everywhere.

10. Stay Secure 

Cyber-attacks are becoming more common every year, and it’s important to stay on top of your software updates to ensure that you’re not vulnerable. It’s also important to clean out your inbox and ensure that you are careful with your email at work.

These 10 desk hacks are sure to boost your productivity and will make working more enjoyable. Applying one hack a week will transform your workflow and give you a huge edge.

Below is an infographic from showing exactly how you can improve performance at work using 10 simple desk hacks.
