Among other findings, scientific researchers have found that views of natural settings improve focus.

As a writer for renovateyourworld.com, I rarely cite articles from Scientific American but this article entitled "How Room Designs Affect Your Work and Mood" is too good to pass up. This lengthy piece documents the state of research into using room design to "promote creativity, keep students focused and alert" and increase relaxation and social intimacy.

There's a slew of scientific findings in the article. Read the entire piece to get some great ideas of how to improve your surroundings.
