Weekly Tips

Maximize Natural Lighting

Be strategic in how you set up your home office, desk, or workspace to maximize natural light coming in. Placing your desk near a window or installing a well placed mirror can amplify natural light.

You can adjust your workspace or even your working hours seasonally to maximize the benefits and minimize your carbon footprint!
