Just moved into a windowless office. The lack of daylight is killing me. Please suggest hacks to brighten my office.
I sit alone in an 8x10 office in an inside corridor. The office features white walls, industrial brown patterned carpet, fluorescent lighting, some blonde "wood" furniture and a door that closes.
I have one of these mini sun lights
, which helps, but I still feel claustrophobic from lack of sunlight. I take a Vitamin D supplement so it is probably not deficiency, just general angst.
Please suggest your office hacks for improving atmosphere. Here are some parameters:
1. I can't paint the office
2. Assume I move office every 6-12 months, so any solution must be temporary and portable
3. Must be less than $100, ideally less than $50
4. I am a 31 year old woman in a professional but laid back job. I do not want dorm room chic or internet nerd ambiance. No lame toys or crude posters please.
I am thinking along the lines of 8' poster of tropical beach scene along one wall to simulate window, should such a thing exist. Would that work? Would a potted plant help (or would it die too without natural light?) What are some other things that could help brighten my day?
