5 Ways to Make Cubical Life Less Dreadful


Control Your Environment

One of the downfalls of working in a large room only separated by dividers and half-walls is that there is little say in the lighting, the temperature, and the level of noise.

While the 3 p.m. popcorn and heavy metal music may be what gets your neighbor through the afternoon, it can be what stops your productivity in its tracks.

Do what you can to control your own space by having a set of headphones on hand, a space heater and fan beneath your desk, and a sweater on the back of your chair.

Also, make sure you’re being a good cubicle neighbor.

Respect your coworkers’ spaces by saving your private conversations for your lunch or car ride home, and having snacks at your desk that aren’t too crunchy or smelly.
