3 Things You Should Keep at Your Desk for Greater Productivity

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Oct 17, 2018 8:21:43 AM

If you’re reading this at work right now or sitting in your home office, look around and take a quick inventory of what you see. Perhaps a pad of Post-It notes, a water bottle or a family photo in a frame?

What you keep on your desk and in its drawers is a very personal choice, but a choice that should be made with mindful intentions and healthy goals. This is because the small things you keep around you can have a big impact on how productive, motivated and satisfied you are during the workday. And while there's no shortage of positive things to choose from, here are three things to keep at your desk that can both help get you into the zone and keep you there:

1. A Live Plant
Unless you have a flexible work schedule or work remotely, you probably can’t spend your days working outside under a shady tree. However, studies show that even getting brief glimpses of nature can work wonders for helping you concentrate on your tasks. In fact, workers surrounded by plants tend to be 15 percent more productive than their peers who can’t see any green. Plants also help clean the indoor air, which helps your brain function better too. Fortunately, you can bring the outdoors inside by picking up a desk-sized plant at your local garden store. Good desk plant options that thrive indoors and don’t need a lot of maintenance include cacti, succulents, aloe vera and bamboo.

2. Noise-Cancelling Headphones
The modern office can be noisy and distracting, especially if your company has adopted the open office floor plan concept that favors collaboration over privacy. One study found that 53 percent of workers surveyed felt disturbed by other people while trying to focus and 69 percent of them were unhappy with workplace noise levels. One of the easiest solutions to this productivity issue is wearing noise-cancelling headphones to drown out the sounds that surround you. Keep a pair of headphones in your desk drawer for when office conditions get a bit noisy and you need to hunker down to get a few more things done. If noise-cancelling headphones aren't in your budget, using regular headphones while listening to some classical or focusing music can be of great help.

3. Superfood Snacks
It’s hard to be productive at work when your stomach is grumbling or if you’re filling your body with unhealthy foods throughout the workday. Doughnuts, candy and other sugary snacks left out in the employee breakroom might look tempting, but they can make your blood sugar skyrocket and then crash a few hours later, thereby killing your productivity. That’s why superfood snacks are essential in every desk drawer for when pangs of hunger strike and your brain starts feeling cloudy or overwhelmed. Navitas Organics Superfood+ Snack Bars are a great choice for grab-and-go nutrition that will nourish your brain when you need a mental boost. We use seven of the most nutrient-dense superfoods on the planet in these power-packed bars, including Cashews, almonds, sunflower seeds, quinoa, and Fairtrade Certified Cacao Nibs and Cacao Powder.

Why Workplace Wellness Programs are Key to Improving Population Health

Meg Adelman, RN, BSN, MPH, Navitas Organics Wellness Director

It’s no secret that chronic disease poses the biggest threat to population health today, estimated to affect at least 60% of the American workforce. An additional 40% have multiple chronic conditions doubly impacting productivity and increasing demands on healthcare services. The collective health of the nation directly impacts the economy and the ability of humans to be resilient and thrive. Yet, it is well understood that virtually all chronic disease can be prevented through modifiable behavior and self care. Ironically, since 80% of our time is spent working, employers may be in the best position to inspire healthy behaviors. This is especially relevant given that employers have the most to gain (or lose) from the health status of their workforce. To effectively tackle this growing epidemic, we need to implement new strategies to empower people to prioritize health across all sectors of influence.

Although 70% of large-sized businesses currently offer Workplace Wellness Programs, small to medium-sized businesses have been slow to adopt them beyond what the programs that insurance brokers and healthcare plans offer. This may be because finances are stretched thin or from insubstantial evidence for return on investment based on standard, outdated evaluation measures. Unlike larger corporations, small-sized businesses don’t hold the negotiating power to argue for insurance premium reductions, which is usually accomplished by identifying employee health risk behaviors through a biometric screening – a clinical assessment measuring body mass index (a measure of obesity), blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Once identified, large corporations will dangle a financial carrot in front of employees to improve those parameters without inspiring lasting motivation. On average, the research shows that any immediate change doesn’t last or translate into long-term improvements in employee health. Using this standard measure of evaluation, the true benefits of these Workplace Wellness Programs is not realized.

How to Live Life Positive in the Workplace

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Jul 5, 2017 1:53:39 AM

While it's easy to focus on bettering oneself while taking time off (or doing something that you love), the workplace can sometimes be a different story. Hectic schedules, the pressure of deadlines, collaborating with challenging personalities, and even the act of striving for success can impact everything from your mood to your inner mantra.
