I’m sure you’ll think I’m excessive. I imagine you asking, “If I’m returning to work soon, then why must I ‘Pimp My Desk’?” Or it could go something like, “Does my bed not suffice?” Well, actually, no. Because if you’ve found yourself lacking motivation, productivity or simply declining posture (I suggest checking out Nike Trainer Steph Brucker and her ‘Desk Detox, here) it could be due to your current set up. Having your own working space contributes to your mood and studies have found that if you work where you sleep, switching off in the evening is far more difficult.

In fact, having a space you like will have you feeling inspired – more on that here – and even if you do return to the office, you can always take keepsakes and handy pieces along with you. ICON suggests cutting the cord, finding a signature scent and fuelling yourself with only the best for peak productivity. We’ve rounded up our favourite things to get you started.
