It’s easy to fall into a workspace rut. Taking in the same environment every day can lead to complacency and lack of discipline. How can you shake off these feelings?

“It’s critically important that your workspace is set up in a way that drives your productivity,” says Jeff Revoy, co-founder of workplace management company SpaceIQ.
