17. Get some color
Don’t let the bland beiges of your cube kill your soul. Surround yourself with colorful accents (or even sheets of paper) to help you do your best work. Green has been shown to make you more creative, while yellow helps you concentrate (it subconsciously tells your brain to decrease production of melatonin).
18. Do a little work on Sunday night Take a few minutes out of your Sunday Funday to look at the week ahead. Being prepared for your schedule is more powerful than you might believe, and Game of Thrones doesn't start until 9 p.m., so you'll have plenty of time.
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.
