19. Eat tons of (healthy) food
Stock up on blueberries, bananas, nuts, dark chocolate, green tea, and leafy ass salads—they’ll keep your brain running on all cylinders. And as much as you may be craving it, that Chipotle burrito for lunch will just weigh you down, man.
20. Lighting is crucial
While you most likely don’t have control over your entire office’s lighting, bring your own desk lamp with a natural light bulb. Fluorescent is not only ugly, it’s soul-crushing. Warmer light does wonders to create a more positive mood and make your desk look extremely baller to boot.
