3. Set up shop near natural light
There's more than a little evidence to suggest that natural light plays an instrumental role in our quality of work and productivity. If you can't find a proper private spot near a window or skylight, though, pick up a full spectrum lamp.
4. Get a standing workstation
We've said it before, but the benefits of a standing desk cannot be overstated. Keep one of these guys around, or simply move your setup to a counter or tall table and spend at least a few hours working on your feet.
5. Get on Slack
Rather than drown in a sea of emails, phone calls, and instant messages to communicate with your colleagues, convince your manager to get the team using Slack. It's a glorious (and gif-friendly) centralized communication platform that allows you to do everything—chat, share documents, send files, etc.—all in one place.
