Why Your Office Needs a Window

Bookmark and Share
Scenario: Dude, we just gotta work in our little office boxes with no windows. It limits distractions like a mutha flucka! Yay! Yeah, windowless offices can limit some distractions; but working in them sucks the life out of you, your work, and your business. A windowless office keeps your mind obsessively focused on your work -- instead of allowing it get those required breaks to replenish your mind, body, and energy.

It's in the study.

According to University of Michigan's Rachel Kaplan:
Workers who have offices with a view of nature report more enthusiasm for their jobs, less frustration, more patience, and fewer physical ailments.

What's the cause of that?

"When employees can glance away from their desks or computers and rest their eyes on a natural landscape, no matter how modest, involuntary attention takes over. Workers get a respite that offsets directed attention fatigue, a mental condition that comes with even the best of jobs."
So when you're coming into the office tomorrow, remind your bad self or whoever's in charge:

"I am badass. I need an office window."
