SO YOU FINALLY persuaded HR to buy you that standing desk. Congrats! (Also: Welcome to 2018.) Maybe you’ve invested in a stress ball, tomato timer, foam roller, and standard-issue sound-cancelling headphones, too.

But if you think you’ve done everything you can to pimp your workspace for the sake of your productivity, you’ve still got a ways to go. With the smart buys that follow, you can turn any drab cubicle into an oasis of good energy and intense focus where great work gets done. Because when you’re at the office, you should work smarter and faster, not harder.
