Stash your favorite books on the shelves and create a mini library. You can sneak in quick breaks from work; either grab a novel, gaze out the window and relax your all-day screen-exposed eyes, or take a short power nap. Small breaks will definitely improve your productivity.

Note: Ensure the wall near the window seat has electrical outlets to plug in your laptop and phone.
