Over the course of an average work life, you’ll spend around 5 years of your life sitting at your desk. Expect to spend more if you work in tech or work remotely for your job. Having a great set of office tools will help those desk years go by with less frustration.
Work-related stress has a serious impact on weight gain, blood pressure, and our relationships away from home. By choosing the right office tools, you can alleviate a lot of that stress and help make your office environment a better place for everyone. This can increase productivity and even make work a little more fun.
Whether you’re shopping for a solution for your team or just trying to make the day go by a little easier, check out these 10 office tools that will boost productivity.
1. Base Magnetized Wood Cable Holder
One of the more frustrating things to deal with on a daily basis are cables that fall behind or underneath your desk. Coiling and knotting them is problematic because of the wear it puts on cables. If you get up and down from your desk all day long, you could be plugging and unplugging or need to gather your charger every couple of hours.
One of the best solutions you can find are magnetized cable tidys that can keep your cables where you need them, held firmly and out of the way. This particular cable tidy has a slick finish and a modern look to fit any office decor. It comes in round, triangle, square or pentagon shapes.
2. Monitor Riser with Drawers
Even a modern office still has needs for paper, pens, paperclips, and the like. But if you like a tidy desk space, having a bunch of tools scattered around can be distracting and look unsightly.
Rather than widen your desk space, you can always build up. This Flat Panel Monitor Riser Stand will help improve your posture, clean up your clutter, and keep your other tools close at hand.
The calmness of your desk translates to the calmness of your workday. If you want to keep things cool even under tight deadlines, this riser might be your answer.

4. Surpahs Bamboo Monitor Raiser
Organic materials can bring some much-needed peace to a modern office environment. Glass and metal don’t have a whole lot of soul and can feel alienating. A little bit of bamboo or a desk plant can really change your attitude at work.
