Many people are working from home these days, and thanks to the lack of separation between your workspace and personal life, you may be feeling like you’re getting less done. Turns out, there’s an office color that will make you more productive.

Website MyJobQuote.co.uk consulted psychologist Lee Chambers on the best colors to paint your workspace, and you may be shocked to find that white is actually not the hue you should be going with. Instead, Chambers recommended the color blue as a way to boost your productivity levels. According to the psychologist, the shade promotes calm and flow which, in turn, makes you more productive.

However, you can opt for other colors. Chambers walked through the ways shades like yellow, orange, and green can affect mood, and unveiled that the trendy minimalist neutral shades you made see everywhere aren’t the best options. He explained, “Offices without a splash of colour, especially those in neutral white, grey and beige tended to induce some sad and depressive feelings”—for the full run down, check out the entire article at Yahoo News.
